Snow, snow, go away, come back....

I think you get the idea. I am really tired of the snow. I didn't think I would ever speak those words because I am truly a kid at heart and usually get as excited as the kids when we get snow. However this year in the last 2 weeks we have had as much snow as we usually get in about 10 winters combined and I didn't sign on for this, lol.

Here are some pics I took this morning, it snowed the whole day yesterday and I am not sure when we are going to see our green grass again.

Anyway we have been playing a lot in the snow so it has help add another dimension of fun to the kids winter holidays.

Tomorrow life returns to normal. The kids I watch are back and school is back in session. So taxi mom will be back at it. Trevor doesn't go to his catchement school so driving is necessary but with two in full time school and one in a half day kindergarten I find myself driving back and forth from the school 3 times a day, some days I feel I live there!

This post may be weird as I have many random thoughts going through my head today and as I write this I haven't decided if I make many posts or one long one.

I went to see Benjamin Button yesterday afternoon with my Mom and sister and I am not sure if I was disappointed because I built it up in my head to be more than it was or did I just not like it. I am not one that falls asleep on the couch when watching t.v. so I definitely don't do this in the theatre but I was fighting the sleep yesterday while watching the movie. I think if 1 hour was cut from the movie the same idea could have been delivered and I personally would have enjoyed it much more. I know many loved this movie so I am surprised by my reaction but seriously I enjoyed Marley and Me much better.

While I was at the movies my Mom told me about John Travoltas son. I was in shock. I am so sorry for their loss and can't believe they have to go through something like this.
I am not sure if I have ever posted on here about Trevors seizures but this really hits home with the worry we have in many different situations. Trevor had 2 feberal seizures when he was a toddler and we were so happy when he turned 6 because all doctors told us he would outgrow them by then. However his past summer Trevor suffered a seizure that lasted about 10 minutes and then a second one at the hospital. These were not feberal seizures so we are back in the worry zone again. We are still waiting on his MRI but honestly I don't know what they can tell us that we don't already know. It is a guessing game regarding why or how so as every doctor has told us we just have to live a normal life with some precautions. This is why it hit so hard yesterday, I have been telling myself not to worry myself sick, you can't die from a seizure is what I tell myself, but you can obviously from the fall so honestly not sure how to get out of the worry zone.

I have a lot more things to talk about but I think I will leave it for a post later in the day. Trevor is going nuts waiting for me to play Monopoly Jr. and Brendan keeps dropping Playdoh on the floor, probably not the best time to be blogging on the computer.

Cheers for now.

I understand your fears with your son. All you can do is what you were a normal life with precautions. Hang in there.

I was afraid to go see the movie because I don't like sad endings and I wasn't sure how that one could end up happy. I don't know anyone that has seen it yet so I haven't heard much!

Enjoy your snow. I live in Illinois and I am ready for spring. I like winter until the day after Christmas and then it can disappear!

LOVED "Marley and Me" ... although I confess I liked the book better.

Thanks for stopping by to comment at "Mommy Monsters" the other day. Be sure to check out EMN, too -- it's my online resource for adoptive, foster, and special-needs families.

I was looking forward to seeing Benjamin Button. I'm sorry your experience wasn't a good one. Someone told me they appreciated his relationship with his mother. USA Today had an article about it Friday, comparing that movie with "Forrest Gump" (both movies had the same screen writer). There were some amazing correlations!

Blessings, Heidi
