The Midnight Moms Club

Hey peeps!! I have created a new Moms group. The Midnight Moms Club.

It's a place for all us "nightowls" to gather to chat about our lives, our kids, our dreams, our hobbies or whatever strikes your fancy. So if you're a perpetual night owl like me please join us.

You can use the link above or the "subscribe" link to the right of this blog.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it SNOW!

Yes I'm one of those people.  I LOVE the white stuff!  I get as anxious as my kids do waiting around the TV on a snowy morning hoping and praying that we'll see the words "Wilson School District CLOSED" across the bottom of the screen.  Or at the very least "Wilson School District 2 Hour Delay".  Which is the case this morning.  Though I didn't get this little tidbit of information from the TV this time.  Automated phone call.  Regardless, I now have a couple of more hours of peace and quiet before I have to wake up the little monsters. 

Of course, now watch, at least two of them will come bounding down the stairs at 6 o'clock.  Despite the fact that any other morning I have to drag them out of bed kicking and screaming.  Murphy's Law.

For now I'm kickin' back with my WaWa Cappucino enjoying the silence and hoping against hope that there's an ever so slight chance they'll close the schools all together so I don't have to go out in the bitter cold at all.  There's little chance of that happening since the snow is light and supposed to taper off in the next hour or two.  But one can dream. 

I know I've neglected this blog over the past several weeks and I didn't even bother wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year here.  I hope everyone had an AMAZING holiday season and that you all have health, wealth and good fortune through the year. 

Our Christmas was fabulous and Santa spoiled all of us.  We had a nice Christmas Day with family and friends and a quiet New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.  All was not perfect though.  The Wednesday after Christmas our lab/shepherd mix ran away and hasn't been seen since:o(  We searched on foot and by car for hours upon hours over four days.  We called the police, the Humane Society  (several times) and put ads on Craigslist and through our local Freecycle group.  But no one has seen hide nor hair of him.  I'm heartbroken and worried.  This dog has a seizure disorder and needs a twice daily dose of Phenobarbital to keep the seizures under control.  I hope someone took him in and will at least treat him well.  Although they're in for a rude awakening when he has a seizure.  And he WILL.  When it happens I hope someone has the decency to take him to a vet or turn him in to the Humane Society. 

The New Year has been uneventful for us thus far.  I've set some goals for myself and have been diligently (sort of) working on them.  I'm determined to get my home and my life more organized.  I want to start a regular exercise routine, lose 30 lbs and continue to work on making hair bows and tutus to sell at local craft shows this year.  I'm also going to start making bottlecap jewelry and eventually key fobs to sell as well.  I'm taking it slow, learning as much as I can and putting together a workable "business plan".  I don't expect to get rich doing this but I'd at least like to make a little extra money to feed my crafting addictions.  :o)

Wow...  I'm awful chatty at this unGodly hour!  I'll end it here though and leave you with my Quote of the Day... 

"Within the core of each of us is the child we once were. This child constitutes the foundation of what we have become, who we are and what we will be."  ~Neuroscientist, Dr. R Joseph

Have a wonderful day everyone!!
