It is finally March. We have survived the dreaded February! I woke to snow filled lawns this morning... but it's all good-- it is MARCH! Now, March brings several exciting things- daylight savings, my nieces birthday, my sister's birthday, spring, and of course one month closer to SUMMERTIME!

To update from previous posts- I am still following up on some jobs- I do think that I am ready to go back to work- but I don't want to teach again.

My mom fell last night while walking the dogs- my sister in law took her to the er because she thought that she'd broke her wrists. (she didn't) But, there has been an appointment made for her at the Center for Healthy Aging-- we are hopeful that this will answer some questions that we have, some concerns, some treatment options for her.

I still have some reservations about how I am feeling about all of these things- but I can say that God is good and there have been some amazing prayers answered for both Chris and I. I appreciate all the support that we have been given as of lately- Chris and I are so blessed with the families and friends that surround us.

On a lighter note- we did watch the USA lose to rival Canada-- I didn't mind much, nor did I really watch the game- I did however attend the festivities! I am so glad that the Olympics are over- I think it is cool and fun and go USA but stop messing with my regularly scheduled programs!

There are a few things that I am hoping for during the month of March-
1- warm weather
2- some energy to enter my body so that I can keep up with this house
3- well children (fisher is on breathing treatments and an antibiotic at the present time- due to a chesty cough and some congestion-- ella is also participating the the breathing treatments-- but if they feel better- I'm all for it!)
4- less snow- more school
5- some scheduling/organizing/routine

I plan on also-
1- reading books
2- cooking most/every dinner
3- couponing
4- re-decorating some parts of the house
5- and planning on warm weather to get outside and get some good ol' vitamin D!

Happy March again to everyone! Cannot wait for April!

I can't wait for April, and the springtime weather, either! I also was a teacher, and just got a part time job. I just don't want to go back to teaching, either.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I am now following you, as well!

Kara, I found you thru Facebook. Just read your blogs for the past yr - you have a beautiful family! We have been concerned about your mom but weren't exactly sure what was going on. You have confirmed our worst thoughts. Kathy had told mom and Deb that she was being tested but that's about all we knew. My mom talks to her several times a week and they meet for lunch when they can. I joined them Saturday before last but not after much confusion about where Kathy was to meet us, time, etc. She got there, though, and we had a good vist. So sorry for you all that this has happened. It's hard to wrap my mind around it and I can't imagine what you kids are going thru. I'll keep checking your blog. Not sure if you get my e-mail address from this post, hope so. (new to all this techno stuff.) If you need anything, let us know. Deb and I have been talking about driving down one Sat or Sunday. We could bring your mom along to visit with you. We'll have to plan this now that the weather is improving. Love you all...
