CRAZY Weather, CRAZY Kids, CRAZY MOM!!!



This is our yummy tortilla soup I made last night for dinner. It was so good to have something warm in my body after being cold and seeing sleet and icicles all day.



This is definitely one of the funniest things I've seen weather related. It was very windy yesterday with gusts above 25 mph most of the day. That is bone chilling in Texas. Not only did it never get above freezing but the wind chill was in the teens most of the day. As we were leaving this morning for the gym the girls started laughing and saying look, look, MOM!! Obviously at some point the wind blew the basketball net up and then it froze there. The girls loved this!

This is a very rare site at our house. I think it has been icy every year we have lived in SA but this is the longest we have had to endure it consecutively. The icicles ar on their way to being weapons they are so big.



You have to love it is cold enough in Texas to have ice everywhere. It just isn't something we experience that often. The kids are loving be out of school again today but it is on the verge of driving me CRAZY!! I just dread now that they have to make up 2 days on the only two days(other than spring break) they have off the rest of the year. I actually like the three day weekends because they have been able to go to Grammy & Poppy's on these weekends before. If, course this is fun for them to play with their cousins and fun for me because I always get things done around here and it is nice to go out on dates and not have to pay a sitter.



The girls are not happy they will be returning to school tomorrow. Me on the other and am a bit on the giddy side that our 5 day weekend is coming to an end. I had fun with them home but good things must come to and end, RIGHT?



I had to document myself out in the cold and as you can see I am wearing a sweat suit. This actually means it must be pretty dreary and chilly because I HATE myself in clothes like this. I know they are the most comfortable clothes you can wear but I don't feel very cute and comfortable in this. I have to admit I for went my usual opinion of myself and dressed like this yesterday and today. I think I was okay with it because I really didn;t have to go anywhere and it felt good to be cozy and warm. I'm so glad this CRAZY weather seems to be coming to and end. It finally got up to 34 degrees today!!

Would you email me (or post) your tortilla soup recipe? Always on the look out for new soup recipes. That basketball hoop picture is great! Enjoy your day tomorrow!

You look very cute in your sweat ensemble. If I was tiny like you I could wear those out in public without being humiliated. I have an outfit like that, but only wear it in the house.

The basketball net picture is hysterical.

Thanks for giving me some of that soup. IT was SOO yummy as you saw I inhaled it in front of you.

How funny about your basketball rim, for sure something to document. Woo hoo for school today! I felt like a million bucks only having two at home.

I am ready for swimming and flip flops to return!!

You are so funny, you look darling in sweats. I have been thinking of my SA friends since I saw the weather dip, that's some crazy stuff down there, I love the picture of the basketball net, too funny.

We were having spring like weather in Chicago up until last week. Our temps had been in the mid 50's
