Back on track

Maybe ...

Yesterday I woke up and decided that I couldn't go to work.  Sick day! I brought my son to latchkey came back home and crawled back into bed.  Then I spent the rest of my time home alone on the couch watching Me-TV.  I felt awful.

This morning I felt marginally better and decided to head into work.  I got caught up on work and did some stuff early.  My coworker was really sweet and picked up a Bolthouse Farms Smoothie drink that has mega Vitamin C in it.  My first time having one of those.  They are *really* good.

Tonite was religious ed night and I used my "free" hour to work on my dishcloth and I listened to episode 3 of Dark Matter Knits. This episode spoke to me.  Her topic was "quiet" and she discussed an audio book she recently listened to. The book was "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking."

Turns out I had listened to this author in a video several months back.  Now I realize she was discussing a book and not just giving a presentation.

On the way home I was fighting the wind.  The wind was pretty strong tonite. I made it home in one piece. I've been told that we are to get some more snow tonite (boo!) and tomorrow there will be windchill factors in the -40 degrees F.  There's already chatter about schools closing. So far our schools are still open.

The babies are still growing by leaps and bounds.  A  couple of them have managed to "fly" up to the top of the tote.  Then they look around and don't know what to do because it's so big outside the tote and usually they jump right back in.

I noticed some new vocalizations tonite.  I think it was the black one.  It was kind of a trilling sound.

I just love the way this one looks.  I can't wait til she's bigger and a full mini version of her mama.

This one tried hiding under the black one.  She couldn't get away from me. .

They didn't care for the camera invading their space. The white one was a bit curious.

Daily 5 of things that made me happy today

1. How sweet my coworker was today.  I also had a blast chatting with her.

2. My magnetic board at work is all fixed. Yay!

3. Being able to watch a podcast during my son's rel. ed class.  I'm way behind on all my "shows".

4. The new season of Survivor started tonite.  I won't be able to watch it til tomorrow.  Then my friend and I can chatter away about it.

5. Being able to take a sick day and not worry. I have close to 100 days accrued.  Might as well use them if I need them.

I just realized that today is my blogoversary.  I've had this blog for seven years.  That is amazing to me.  It wasn't until the last couple years that I think I found my voice and direction however.

Well ... until next time :-)
