My dear YOUNGER sister has been coming to the house every morning at 7 AM to blow dry my hair for me. Yesterday morning after she got here, I saw the sun coming up in the mirror and had to go out and take a picture, wet head and all. The colors were beautiful!! (The picture doesn't do it justice at all!!)

President's Day

Finally got to use my Mother's Day gift card to LaBella nails were long enough and I had a day off to have it done!! And I still have enough left on the card to get another!!! Woohoo!!


Basketball is winding down. Greg volunteered to referee special olympics basketball on Saturday morning. They take the game very seriously!!!

Then that evening, he had a TAPPS boys playoff game. He has softball tonight, and another playoff basketball game tomorrow evening.....who knows what the rest of the week is always hectic when the sports overlap!!!

This is what the goldfish tank looked like starting on Tuesday, and it only got colder and colder as the week went on. The boy's dad used to tell the story about his family going on vacation and they didn't want to have someone come take care of their goldfish that they had at the time, so they would put it in an ice tray and freeze it. And then thaw it out when they got home and it would be fine. All these years, I was thinking "yeah, right", sounded a lot like the tall tales in the movie Big Fish. The weather finally got above freezing for a while on Friday, then yesterday it was warmer all day long. Today it is probably in the 70's and we pulled the tank into the sun so it would thaw.
The goldfish are ALIVE!! The smaller one is a different type of goldfish and she seems to be struggling, I think her little front fins must have frozen!!
If I hadn't seen it myself, I wouldn't have believed it!! And Brandon, "ye of little faith"......I guess it wasn't a tall tale after all!!!!

Lexi in her new sweater....

She isn't too wild about it now but I think once she figures out that it keeps her back warm, she might just realize how great this is!!! Outside cat is in the house sleeping on blanket on the freezer, we have water and electricity, heater is working (no rolling outtages since I got home), baked potato soup for dinner......thankful for so many things!!!
