I have had so many things going on lately that I don't even know where to start. I got to go spend 3 wonderful weeks with my family, in which time we had a massive amount of snow fall. It had been 3 years since I had been home, and just as long since I got to play in the snow. The first snowfall was 14" of powder, which cars were getting stuck in all over town. I have so many pictures and videos but left them all at home..... I will post as soon as I get them back.
I did as much busy work there as I could. I painted my Mom's kitchen a beautiful yellow called chiffon pie, (which took me 3 days), helped organize things around the house, shoveled snow, and helped with my Grandma. She is absolutely wonderful. Because of a mishap with the airline I ended up having to pay last minute for a return ticket, although I had already bought a round-trip ticket. Continental will cancel any return flights you have if you miss a connecting flight on the way to your destination. They do this without an email, warning, heads-up or anything. Just in case you are thinking of flying that airline, there is something to think about. A very pricey something to think about.
I was so tempted to stay a few weeks longer, I don't think it's ever been so hard to leave home. I am very fortunate to be so close with my family. They are the best :)
