A little of this, a little of that

Hello all! I have been wanting to post but haven't known what to write about. I was tagged by mykidsmom with a picture post and I really want to do it and will do it......once my husband fixes the picture issue we're having. Really, I will :) I've been on him for several weeks to get it done....but you can only ask and hint so much before you become a nag, lol. And being a nag is one thing I will not become. I'm sure my husband appreciates that!
I have been working a little more lately. Everyone I work with is talking about getting less hours, but I'm getting more it seems. I think it's because I was willing to learn the customer service desk(so many women there won't). Now someone has quit and I'm picking up her hours....Not really what I wanted but we need it right now.
The kids were thrilled yesterday when they woke up to several inches of snow. We haven't had any snow since Christmas, just wind. BLOWING BLOWING and BLOWING! We've had to hunt the neighborhood several times for our garbage can. I'm telling ya, that wind can blow across the prairie. It's a good thing they got out to play in it, because it's supposed to be 42 degrees today.
Homeschooling is going well. We haven't gotten to do a lot of the extra stuff that we normally do since I have been working. I feel so bad about it. At least they have lots of bonding time with daddy :)
Oh yeah, I had a moment of panic this morning. I was looking at the news online and saw where there was that peanut butter recall. We have some of those Austin crackers in the cupboard!!!I just bought them a few days ago thankfully. Freddy had eaten 2 packages of them, but they were the cheese ones. Thank God! I'm so thankful the kids hadn't had a chance to eat them. I haven't bought packaged snacks like that in sooo long, now I know why. The worse part of it was, Freddy was sick yesterday. So, of course I immediately think he has salmonella poisoning. But, he didn't have any of the symptoms. Poor kid, probably thought his mother was crazy. Those crackers are going straight to the trash can!

The best thing about living here is the library system. We can go to about 8 or so different libraries with the same card. We are ALL bookworms. I don't have as much time to read now that I'm working but, come break time, you'll find me in the break room with a book in hand ;) We decided to check out a new library yesterday. It's about 8-10 minutes from our house. Cute little library, used to be a bank. They have a nice kids area, lots of puzzles, games and fun stuff. Not to mention different books! The kids had a great time and there was a guy from the newspaper interviewing the librarian about the library. He took some pics of the kids....who knows they might end up in the paper. All for the love of reading.
