Snotshoos and Sponsibilities

Oh miss Emma Jean! She is such a funny little girl. I have many opportunities to have one on one chats with her. On a daily basis she makes lists. I ask her what she is doing and her reply is always, "Just my sponsibilities Mom, I just need to get this list done." I think she takes after me, I am forever making lists.
She has had my cold or rather, I have had hers. about two years ago, she got a cold and she kept running to me saying, "Snotshoos, Snotshoos". So what are snotshoos you ask? Boogers. Yes folks they are boogers. She put together snot and tissue. So when she was making her list the other day before we went to the store, I asked her, what was on her list. She said, "Just my sponsibilities and more tissue from the store. I have a lot of snotshoos and we are almost out of tissue."

Holy Fetching Snow Batman!

I awoke this morning to a massive snow storm! I don't know what it was like anywhere else, but oh my gravy was it a doozy! It took me 15 minutes to get the kids to school this morning ( it usually takes 3). Thank heaven for four wheel drive. I had to make two more trips after that back to the school.

The kids spent the day in the dark at school because of power outages. On my way to pick up the Kinnygardeners, I turned left and went up the hill instead of taking the back roads. That was a mistake and I knew it as soon as I turned and a car turned in front of me. Let me splain the hill. If you don't have four wheel drive it is like trying to get up Parleys Canyon in a snow storm. That car made it half way up and then slowly began to slide back down. Lucky for me I went around her. Whew! close call.

Then when I got home, I had the pleasure of watching the Garbage Man dump the cans. Poor guy, he dumped the garbage and the can followed. He had to climb into the truck and throw the stinking thing out. He didn't look none to happy. I wonder if it happened more than once today. I sure got a kick out of it. I laughed so hard I nearly coughed my guts out!

When the big kids got out of school, I drove up to pick them up. I usually pull into Grandma Jean's driveway. Fat chance there! She had a four foot mound in front of her driveway! Even in four high I wasn't chancing that since I was in slippers and toe socks.

I wonder now if perhaps Lee will buy me a snow blower. Doubtful!
