Iced In

For the last two days, we have been iced in. Yesterday, I took the girls to school, and things were fine, and by 11:00 when I went to pick Audrey up the roads were really slick, I slid off the road like four times thankfully it was just in the grass. So I went ahead and picked Reagan up while I was there, because their was no way I was getting out in it again, and I just did not feel comfortable with her riding the bus with the roads that way. We had a fun day just hanging out and watching movies. They were out of school today, and it sleeted/snowed pretty much all day today, the girls had a great time playing in it, they were just mad because their was not enough snow to make a snowman:) We baked cookies, and had a tea party, it was so fun just hanging out with them, they are growing up so fast, and I want to cherish the time that they still want to spend with me. I also took advantage of not being able to go anywhere, and got all my laundry done, got the house cleaned and even cleaned out a couple of closets! Schools are also closed tomorrow and I may go crazy if we can not leave the house, so hopefully some of it starts melting sometime tomorrow so we can get out of the house. I am just sad that Tim was not here to enjoy all the fun we had:)

I cannot believe that today it has been a year and four months since I lost one of the greatest sisters in the world. She is always on my mind, but the last couple of weeks have been really hard and I am not sure why. It is so hard to really accept that she is gone. So many things have happened without her. Like I still am mad that she was not there for the wedding, if she would have been there it would have been perfect, but without her, it was a happy/sad day. It seems like life should have just stopped until we felt ready to go on, but it dont work that way, and we have to just keep going. When something like this happens in your life it makes you realize what is really important and whats not, and I think that I need to always remember that, and not let the little things get to me. I have really been struggling with some things lately, and I realized last night I cannot change things or people all I can do is control the way I deal with it, and in the big picture these things are really small. Life is so short, and things can change in the blink of an eye. I have two wonderful little girls, a great husband, and an amazing family, and although part of it is missing I need to remember to thank God for the things I do have.

So I am going to try this again, and hopefully I keep up with it better this time! I really cannot believe it is already the third week in january! This year has already brought some changes, that I do not like. Tim has a job in texas, which means that I am a single mom five days a week, and me and the girls both do not like this arrangement, we miss him so much. I know that it is what has to be done right now, but I am just ready to be able to move there with him. So I would appreciate everyone keeping us in your prayers that the girls dad will not make this any harder.
Part of me is still sad about moving, I like being so close to my family and it is going to be hard to leave them. I am thankful though that I have amazing in-laws so that makes it easier for me to go. It will be nice to be close enough that we can do things with Randall and Celice, and hopefully Jason and Katie soon!
