Frigid Weather

P1220456-icicle1) We had a short week last week! Monday was off for Martin Luther King, and Friday was off because of frigid temperature.

2) I found traces of my son’s madness all over the house one day! Burnt marks on my kitchen table, and “yuckiness” in the laundry sink. Grrr…I just want to wake him up and yell at him…but I didn’t..control, control my temper! I got it under control!

4) It has been a cold cold week here in Michigan. School closed for three more days since the wind chill was in the -15 to -20. It doesn’t matter how many layers of clothes I had on, after two minutes I freeze!

5) My oldest son came home on Jan. 28 after eight months at sea. No, he is not in the army; he worked on the Carnival Sapphire cruise ship as an officer for the food and beverage department. It will be an interesting next couple of months with him home.

  1. Did your son enjoy the experience? I’m such a homebody that I could never do that but I think it would be fun.

    Your son has an interesting job — I imagine he will enjoy his time at home.
