Yes, I’m still planning on keeping up with my blog…

Wow, when I thought I was ready to get “back in the swing of things” I never realized how busy we actually are. I love being back at work and hearing stories of Mary Clare on a daily basis, and seeing McCanless be the “cool” second grader that she is.  (Especially after those grumpy, not-so-happy morning rush days).

This past weekend, we celebrated the long and happy life of Mel’s grandmother, “Nana,” who passed away on Friday morning.  We also celebrated four birthday parties, missed a Valentine party, watched McCanless hip hop during half-time at a Coker College game, and had a fantastic time visiting with family who traveled to honor Nana’s life.  To say our weekend was busy is an understatement.

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, and if you have ever worked in a school (especially middle school area) you know it’s like the day before Christmas break.

McCanless has a dance competition this weekend.

My mom will turn 61 this weekend. (Which made me realize my actual age last night while soaking in the tub-with both girls.  I could have sworn I’m only 34.)

Mel has at least one speaking/meeting/social event every single night this week.

Oh, and while I officially stopped wearing my wig in public, I threw it on this morning again.  During our unseasonably, nearly 80 degree days, it was fine.  This morning, after a weekend of wearing hats,  my poor ears were so sore.  So, I’m a brunette again.  At least until this cold weather subsides.

I have my first appointment with my new radiologist on Thursday to get that started!  Yay!

While life is definitely “in full swing” it does make the countdown to Spring go so quickly!  Sunshine and hair, here I come!

So sorry to hear about Mel’s grandmother. Please give him my regards. Sounds like you had a very busy weekend. It was great seeing you at the hip hop half-time show for the girls. You looked great by the way! Cheers to spring, I can not wait. See you this weekend!

I’m sorry to hear about Mel’s grandmother!

Ummmm…should I be the first to tell you that you are only 34? Or was that I joke that I just didn’t get?

Typo-see, I’m getting older by the second!
