Christmas is getting close, and I think we are just about ready. Only a few more little things to pick up for the kids. And then we have to figure out what we are making for Christmas dinner this year. My husband is Italian, so we try and do an different Italian dish every year. His schedule will be a little weird with Christmas falling on a Monday, but that’s okay with us, as long as we get to spend the holiday all together. It’s much better than when were both were working because law enforcement doesn’t get holiday’s off. And there were years that we worked both Christmas Eve and Christmas Days, and our days overlapped. It’s been nice the past two years for my husband and I since we decided to step away from it, the long days and missing so much with the kids and school activities. My son will be out of school after this week for break, and my daughter is set for time off from home-school as well. Hopefully the weather will hold out and we can make our way up to see Bristol in Lights this year. 🙂
We spent about two hours yesterday digging out the school bus that spun out and got stuck coming up our road. Our local Mountain Rescue and Volunteer Firefighters came and got the kids a couple at a time and took them home up their road that were so snow covered too, the bus wouldn’t have made it up there either. The schools should have released much earlier than they did. But my husband, son and dug while I helped get the kids down the road to the guys who came to take them home. What a mess, but everyone made it home. I love living in the mountains, but yesterday really put things in perspective for me. Especially now that we are pretty much snowed in for the next day or two. Ugh….
Now all the drama aside. It was a pretty good week, I got some really good reading done and a busy week on the the blog as well. I got some good new book goodies and hopefully my Book of the Month book gets here this coming wee too. I am really excited for it. Other than that, that’s about it here. How about you, how was your week?
