Saturday, I think!!

This week has been a different week...being gone, living in a motor home with no water, ice, rain, snow, sleet and fog!! We are still here in Illinois at our daughter's. We are parked right next to her house...all night it rained and rained and rained....Our poor little snowman is not doing well this morning!! This morning it is 43!! This weather is absolutely crazy!!

Today our son in law, Mikey, and my parents are heading back to Tuscola where my parents live. It is 61 there already this early in the morning...see how silly this Illinois weather is!!?? They just left. Mikey is taking my parents back home. They now both have colds too. Most of us do up here!! They are going to pick up our dolly (car) and bring it back here to hopefully get it fixed. Our car is still at my parents apartment in Tuscola!! They will be gone most all day!!

Yesterday we girls, plus my dad and Mike went to Dekalb to shop the after Christmas sales. I found a couple of things that were great prices!! We had coffee at Caribou Coffee then my son in law took Dad back to their home and we ladies plus Mikey went shopping again....Found some more good deals.

I am not sure what today holds but hopefully no more snow...I hope we get home before there is more snow. I have about had it with snow!! I am just not a snow person, I guess. I need to get out and visit today!! I have not been good lately....please forgive me!!

I just found out that my brother has a new blog. If you would like to go and check it out just go to Ron's blog. He would be quite surprised to have someone actually stop by...he is just starting out now.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday!!

Sounds like you'll get by with no snow today -- and rain is good - it washes the snow away! Leaves lots of mud... and muck... but it's not snow!

Hope they get the car back to you safely.

I'm still coughin' and hackin' here... this is what I hate about a cold... they linger FOREVER in me!

Susan said... sounds like it HAS been WEIRD weather. I'm hoping for no more snow for your sake. I think all that fluctuation makes it tough, however.

Hope you're enjoying your family and the memories you are making.

Big HUGS!!

:-) Susan

This GA weather is really weird... staying this warm for so long. We are still running around 78-80 degrees for highs. I think in the Monday we will get back in the mid 60s.. and rain.

Be careful in that weather out there. My in-laws swear that Zicam helps with the colds. I haven't had a cold in forever. Now allergies are another thing :-)

I'm glad you are having a great time.

I really don't like the sound of the weather you're having Sandy, and I can really understand you wanting to get back to the warmth. I'd be going stir crazy by now, I think. I hope you are able to get underway soon and head back to the sunny weather.

I think the weather has been crazy everywhere!!! Please be careful on your return to the south!

Love the Santa on the plane. That is too cute.

I can imagine how tired you must be of all that weather. I'd be with you. Please find some warm sunny weather soon.

Hey sis, sounds like your very gald you moved away.. Me too!!! Talked to Mom on im and she said she is not feeling well, bad cold worse than Dad she says. Well it finally warmed up some here. Hard freeze last night but today about 60 degrees. Have to go to Xmas party tonight at Wendy's over in Glendale, can't stay long as it's a 3:30 am get up in morning for work. Keep warm and tell everyone hi from Arizona....

I'm playing catch-up again and just came from visiting your brother and welcoming him to Blogger.

Sorry there is so much snow there in Ohio. We have very little here. We did have lots before Christmas but it rained all day the other day and got really warm, so we don't have much, but it's colder today and we will get more.

Take care and a safe trip home.

Mary said...

PS. Love your snowman. Our snow was mostly dry and fluffy so no snowman here. :-(

Linda said...

Sounds like you are having a great time in spite of the weather. It was a crazy 77 degrees here yesterday. Have a safe trip home.

The weather there does sound weird. You will feel right at home when you get back... it's 60 degrees today with sunshine.

I will pray for safe travels. BLESSINGS!
