First, the snow continued to fall on Thursday night well after I went to bed. At the time I went to bed, ALL of the schools in Collin county had been cancelled for the day, but of course, the Courthouse wasn't even showing a delay. I set my alarm to get up early and check the County's website on my phone to see if there was a delay. Sure enough, at 6:15, I discovered there was a delayed open of 10 a.m. I went back to bed for more "snow day" sleep. Then at 8:15 I hear my phone start buzzing. It is Jennifer and she wants to know if I'm asleep because she is on her way to my house. She decided to forgo the snow day because Joshua's daycare was having an a.m. V-day party. It was also at this point that I learned the County had delayed opening until noon. UGH! That won't confuse my clients or anything!
I drag my butt out of bed and let Lola out to see this out back...
and this is what the front looked like...
Lola enjoyed a little more snow play, although in the really deep areas, she had to hop like a bunny and it was the cutest thing ever...
Once I got to the courthouse for the noon opening, I found what I expected...that nobody who needed to be there to get anything done was there and it was just a big freakin' waste of time. WONDERFUL! So glad that I rescheduled my 1:00 hair appointment to 3:00 so that I could get nothing done.
Then before I could go to my hair appointment, I got a call regarding "one of my kids" down in Waco at a children's home who has started theaving again. Just freakin' great. I think to myself, can anything else crappy happen today. I decide to leave for my hair appointment a little early and drive over on the east side of McKinney to take some snow pics. I'm glad I did. Here is what I captured...
I like the pink touches to this one, but check out those snow arms he is sculpting!
This Bud's for you!

On Saturday, the snow began to melt. Lola had cabin fever and wanted outside.
Here she is at the door. Translation: Mom, I'm cold and tired, I want inside.
Okay, Lola. Mommy's coming.
Wait a minute... What the heck?
Snow + Melting= Muddy Lola
After the bath, I checked the mail and found that my friend Jenn sent me this adorable bookmark for V-day. How cute! So sweet of her to think of me!
Then I got all riled up about something else. But you know what, after about 30 minutes of having a complete panic attack/fit, I looked at the bookmark and thought, yes, that is the answer.
Happy Valentine's Day!
