Checking In

I have been such a bad blogger! I have been neglecting my blog. :'( I'll try to get back into it!

We had a great Easter. We went to my sisters. She said she counted and there were over 80 people there! I got to see a lot of family members that I hadn't seen since LAST Easter! I have pics and will try to get them posted here sometimes this week. There was so much food there yesterday. Everyone brought a dish or too. I took macaroni salad, seafood salad, deviled eggs and PMS brownies. We did a BIG egg hunt for the kids. They all had a blast. It was a wonderful day!

For dinner tonight I have a whole chicken in the oven baking, My house sure smells good now! I'll be making a side dish of some sort. I'm not sure what all I have in the pantry, a veggie and some biscuits.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I hope everyone has been having a grand ole' St. Patty's Day today. :) It's been a while since I updated my blog. Nothing exciting to report. It's been raining here since last Friday. I think tomorrow the sun is supposed to shine, that will be a welcome sight, I'm really tired of the dark rainy days!

My birthday was Monday. I had a nice day lazy day. ;) Keith was going to take me out to dinner, but I didn't feel like going out in the rain, so he and the boys fixed themselves sandwiches and noodles and I made myself a tuna sandwich. Keith bought me a birthday cake from my favorite bakery, Ukrop's which is really a locally owned grocery store and they make the best birthday cakes! :)

To save a little household money we decided to cancel our land line. We all have cell phones. We will still have our DSL through our land line company. Has anyone done away with their land line and gone to just having a cell? We hardly ever used the land line phone, I guess I got most of the calls on it and used it the most, but it was more out of habit then anything else.

Dinner here tonight was marinated boneless chicken breast, Amish noodles and corn. I should have fixed green beans so we had something green, but I was really wanting corn, so corn it was! lol I have cabbage here, but I just wasn't in the mood for it.

All My Beautiful Snow...

All of my beautiful snow has melted away! :'( Today the temps were in the upper 70's and tomorrow they are supposed to be the same. Don't get me wrong today was nice, but I rather have the cold weather. One plus is we get to change our clocks tonight and it will stay lighter longer, I do like that!

I had to run some errands today and decided not to go grocery shopping, I'll do that tomorrow.
I went to Walgreen's today and I paid with a $100.00 bill, when the cashier gave me my change back it wasn't enough change, I told her that I had paid with a $100.00 bill and she started arguing with me that I had paid with a $50.00 bill, I didn't even have a $50.00 bill in my wallet only $100.00's and $20.00's. She finally called the manager up there and the manager opened the drawer and there was my $100.00 bill on top of all the other big bills. She told the cashier to give me the correct change and as she walked away she was rolling her eyes at the cashier and shaking her head. If I hadn't been paying attention I would have never noticed that she didn't give me the correct change until I got home.

Keith wanted a hamburger and fries from fiveguys so that is what we had for dinner. I do love their fries!

I'm Snowed In And Loving It! :)

We got snow over night! I think I heard the local weather guy say we have about 5 and a half inches so far. My husband and my two son's didn't have to go to work today. All the schools are closed and a Richmond, VA is pretty much shut down. It started Sunday while I was out grocery shopping. When I left the house it was pouring rain, by the time I left the last grocery store the roads were covered with snow! There are over 66 thousand people in Richmond, VA without power. Our lights blinked a few times last night and actually stayed out for about 5 minutes but they came back on and have stayed on. Normally my area is the first to loose power and the act to get it back. We have been getting heavy snow and heavy wind all night and it's still real windy and the snow is still falling.
My plan for the day is to make a big pot of taco soup for dinner and I hope to make some kind of dessert and I might even pull out my bread machine. I love baking when its snowing. :)

Here are some pics that I took last night and this morning:
