Craziest week ever!!

Holy cow it has been a crazy week! I cannot even it put it in a post. I am in awe of life. Today I have no voice. I mean absolutely NO voice. My throat hurts and I cannot even complain about it (at least out loud). I am tired.

When I woke up this morning, there was snow everywhere. I live in Texas, it never snows. At present we have received 9.3 inches and it is still snowing (big time record for a year not just a day). I was sad when I realized I had to go to work in the snow and teach 1st grade with no voice. The kids thought it was the best day ever because I gave them word searches and had them take turns reading to the class. Oh yeah, and I took them out and we had a huge snowball fight (because seriously? when will they ever get the chance to do this is awesome packing snow). We stayed out until one girl cried that her hands were burning (oops!). Don't worry we let them warm up under the hand driers.

But happy day...they already announced school is cancelled tomorrow. I need sleep. Major sleep. The gym cancelled my classes for tonight and tomorrow. Boohoo. At least I did a double workout yesterday and I have the Wii for tomorrow. A four day weekend my friends!!! Love it, love it, love it!

Looking forward to more snowball fights (I also nailed my teammates but have yet to get my hubby) and lots of sleep. I "heart" my bed. And reading. Like a surprise vacation.

Hope you all are doing well. Looking forward to reading more blog entries on my vacation!

aw, snow is so exciting! I love it here in NY and it's not that rare so I can only imagine the fun it is for Texans. Also, I was wondering what wii games you use to workout? i use Just Dance and Wii Sports Resort...both fun!

I think our weather was mixed up with yours. I live in Newfoundland, Canada and it's been above freezing and raining for that last few days.

P.S: love your blog... I'm gonna start following your progress!
