Update on my crazy life

TL and I had to go out and dig a drainage ditch...well, not really a ditch but a path for the melting water.  The ground is still frozen solid.  The snow is piled 6 feet high on both sides of the driveway with no where for the melting snow to go but sitting in a pool in the driveway.  The pasture next to the driveway is thankfully angled down from the driveway so we just had to shovel a path through the snow for it to move.  The problem was that we've had a few days of warmer temps so when we got to the bottom, there was ice about 4 inches deep and 18 inches wide lining the driveway.  TL had to take a hammer and screwdriver and chisel a path.  

I've started back to college.  This is the end of the second week.  I'm working through and seem to be doing okay so far.  Its hard and keeping me very busy but so far I'm really enjoying the classes.

TL had his belt test for Taekwondo and has moved up to his blue belt.

Princess became a teenager and got her braces a few weeks ago.

Her friends came over for the day and we had a Jamberry Nail party.  They spent hours doing each other's nails and had a blast.

I ordered my bifocals.  I pick them up next week.  I'm having a hard time doing my reading for school because I've been wearing my contacts and I can't see to read.  I'll have my glasses back on tomorrow because I'll be doing homework all day and I can take them off to read.  TL is getting new glasses too and hopefully contacts.  I've had to take him in two times to try to get them into his eyes.  Hopefully he will be more successful on Monday when we get our glasses.

Life is busy but good.  I've ordered a half a pig to put into our new freezer and our friend called to tell me that the 1/2 cow should be ready in a few weeks.  We rent our back 8 acres to him each year and in return get a 1/2 cow.  We're still hoping to get a few pigs and cows this year but we will see how it goes.  I'm not sure I can add anything else on my plate right now.  We may just get the pigs this year.

Enjoy your weekend!  We're supposed to get some snow!
