Is Winter Ever Going To End!

I'm beginning to think winter is never going to end. I definitely have a bad case of cabin fever. My kiddo's are going bonkers having to stay indoors so much and it's starting to take it's toll on my cleaning effort. UGGH!! I worry that with an early Easter this year we will have to celebrate indoors this year instead of outside. With over 20 children in my family it's going to be crazy. How are your families surviving this long winter?

My Cousin Was Shot In The MO City Hall Shooting.

This has been such a horrible and sad week. My cousin Todd was shot in the hand by an mentally unstable man who gunned down a police officer in the parking lot then entered City Hall in Kirkwood, MO and shot another police officer, 3 council members, the mayor and my cousin who is a newspaper journalist there reporting the city council meeting. The gunman was then shot and killed by police. I cannot believe that someone could become that upset that they would do so much harm to other human beings, especially my cousin who was just there reporting a story. I don't even want to imagine what might have happened if the shooters gun was aimed just a couple of inches closer. It feels so surreal that this has happened to one of my own family members. You see these horrible stories on the TV and you feel so upset and sad for the families but it never seems possible that something like this could affect your own family.

It's Hailing!

Yuck! What a drab and dark day. It snowed Thursday and my children were out of school Friday. Saturday the weather finally warmed up and all the snow melted but now today it's misting rain with hail! I'm not sure I have ever see so much hail arrive with so little rain. My husband and I raced to put our vehicle in the garage and I'm so glad we did because the yard has so much hail it looks like snow. My kiddo's are going stir crazy being stuck inside so we decided to build a big castle out of blocks. It been alot of fun but my living room has been over taken. LOL! I've always wanted to be the queen of my own castle and thanks to my children today I officially am. (-: So how has the weather been in your area?
