Been watching the weather here...we're under a Winter Storm Watch starting at 12 am tonight until late Monday night. It says there is potential for heavy accumulation. I hate when it says that and it doesn't even give you a inches. Anyway, it's supposed to start out with heavy snow, then change over to sleet, then to freezing rain. It sounds like the sleet won't be until I'm home from work. Fingers crossed. I guess we'll see!

I am watching TLC right now. My kids love Polar Express. I am sure we will end up watching something on Disney Jr. later on here. They are downstairs playing with my DH right now. They sound like they're enjoying themselves!

I make the grandkids green eggs every year for St. Paddys Day! This year I won't be able to, they are out of town at the beach. I am sure that is a lot more fun than sitting at grandma's having green eggs! =)

I am THE SAME WAY! I have the most difficult time planning a vacation all due to worrying about my fur babies. My adult son is here and does take care of them but I feel so lost without them especially when it's time to go to sleep, I want them with me. When Wayne and I took the road trip up to Maryland and New York City I took my dogs with me. I felt so relaxed having my babies with me. Cats usually do well being home and don't do too well on road trips so I am okay with that. Like I said, my adult son is home with them and my parents stop by everyday sometimes a few times a day to make sure they are all okay. We have a house full of people keeping an eye on things. I almost cancelled my trip to Houston last year to see Paul McCartney when Chico got sick with his heart. The medication worked so well that I did go and he was taken good care of. I still WORRY THOUGH!!! It doesn't help much either that Chico has this special bond with me more than anyone else and I know he stresses a little when I am away, even if I go outside to take the trash out!!! lol

Here is something funny about my son. For his 21st birthday his friends wanted to take him out drinking at the clubs. We invited him to take him out to dinner. He chose to go to dinner with his "dorky" parents! Ha ha! I thought it would be the normal thing to do is go use your ID now that you're 21 but he said he is not in the least bit interested. If they hit the clubs I would be calling a cab for them all!!!

I think my daughter don't mind the way I am because she is a parent now and understands. When she was younger she probably didn't care too much about me checking on her often. She now thanks me for how I am! Your kids will too someday! =)

When I said this morning about making the green eggs, they decided they just wanted the Lucky Charms, which sort of bummed me out. That's nothing special because they like to eat those all the time - it's pretty much they're favorite cereal. Oh well! Maybe they'll decide they want the eggs some other day!

Hoping with all my heart that your scan is clean ... but whatever may happen, you're ahead of the curve, 'cause your support system is here and ready for action. Keep strong.
