You've got to see this....

This is our first MAJOR ice storm of the year.

And as you can probably guess, we've had some major power issues. We first lost power for a few hours on Friday and then Sunday it went out completely until Thursday evening. Jerry decided to brave the cold & stake it out in the apartment but me & the kids didn't want anything to do with a cold, boring apartment especially since school/work was cancelled for most of the week. We took up Uncle John's offer to stay at The Cabins in Branson (where he works) & just stay warm there. The cabin was awesome so I had to take pictures of our mini vacation.

Anyways, there's a busy week ahead for us. Tomorrow Jerry has the board meeting to go to so he can see if he got the school's mowing bid. From the way things have transpired, I really doubt he'll get it but we'll still keep our fingers crossed though. Also, this week I'm going to find out if I will be moving over to the Accounts Payable position. I love my job but the salary increase would really help us out. I'm hoping we can check into several houses this week too. Our realtor is due back in the office next week & I'd like to be able to make an offer on something. Plus we'll get back into the swing of school & basketball practice too after being cooped up for a week - the kids NEED to get rid of some of that pinned up energy.

Happy New Year!!!

It's 2007! Not too much exciting happening this year yet (thank goodness) but I have been able to get a little scrapping done. I'm hoping I can get a lot of that done this year. The kids have had a fun day of video gaming so we've had a pretty lazy day. Tomorrow that changes though - I start back to work after my 2 week vacation. Talk about sucky!! :) Yeah I REALLY don't want to go in but I guess I have too. The kids aren't going to like getting up at 6 am again (neither will I). We were really liking sleeping in until 9 or later. Oh well - back into the swing of things I guess. Oh & today I got some really cute pictures of the kids & me.

Hmmm... oh yeah! I almost forgot! We looked at houses the other day & we found a couple that we really liked. Now we just need to look into financing & see what payments would be. They both are ones we'd need to do a little work on but they were both really good sized (even room for a scrapbook room!!!). I just hope & pray we can figure things out if this is what is right for us. I don't like the thought of jumping into something but I really don't know how much longer we can stand it in this apartment. I think it's beginning to wear on all of us. Anyways, I'm keeping my fingers crossed & pray that we find/get in our home soon!
