Music: "Say It Right"- Nelly Fertado
Mood: Tired

This isn't going to be a long post because I am so tired I can barely keep my eyes open. So it's going to be short and sweet and you're just going to have to deal with it (lol).

Sunday was the Superbowl... and the Colts won (yay!). I was glad because they had gone before but never won and I think every team deserves to win right?

Monday was the best day ever because it was a snow day!! It wasn't called because of snow, it was called because of the extremely cold temperatures. I was happy and loved it! I didn't really do anything on Monday... just kinda hung out and got some small things done, but nothing significant or really important.

Monday night was fantastic because Kylie called to tell me that there was no school for Tuesday! YAY!! I was able to sleep in and relax for another day!! I drove out to Southfield to have lunch with Steve. We went to Mr. Joe's and had burgers, fried pickles (YUMMM) and deep fried mac-n-cheese (Steve loved it). I went home and then I met Michelle and Diana at Briarwood to see Unaccompanied Minors. Not a good idea to see a movie on a day when every kid in Washtenaw county was off school!! Plus it was a kid movie and only $0.50 so it was cheap!! Anyway-- it was cute.

I went to the post office and mailed the first two care packages for the soldiers from soldiers

I was hoping that there'd be no school again on Wednesday, but I was disappointed when I had no call to tell me to sleep in. I went to work Wednesday not knowing how much would change in just a few short hours!

At lunch I walked into the office and someone said that there were two kittens found abandoned and they were in the electrical room. I asked if I could see them (just because I love kittens). I walked in and saw the first cat and he came right to me and I picked him up and he started to cuddle with me. As I was holding him, the secretary told me that Wednesday morning, one of the teachers had seen him outside and he was frozen to the sidewalk. She called the custodian to come remove the body before the kids arrived. It turned out that he wasn't dead... just frozen.

Anyway-- long story short, I took the kitten (he's about six months or so). We named him Toebe because he's a polydactyl cat (has additional toes and looks like thumbs). He's a mini-Eddie. Looks just like Eddie but much much smaller.

That's the excitement for the week. We had a compliment party today and it was a great day. No other big news... we're going to Main Dish tomorrow. We're meeting Matt and Aimee at Panera for lunch before going to Dish and then sometime tomorrow night we're going out for Pam's birthday bash... bad karaoke and drunks... what a superb mix!!

Mood: Tired

Music: "Faithfully" by Journey

So it's been like three weeks or so since I last posted. I've meant to come up here and actually write something, but I feel like these last few weeks I've been running at full-speed and have had no time to stop and breathe. It's like I get home so late, eat dinner, watch some television to relax and then it's time to get ready for bed. I can't really complain, it's been nice not to be bound to my computer and I've actually been able to go to bed several nights in a row without checking e-mail, myspace and facebook.

Steve turned 32 last Monday. We celebrated by going to Steak & Ale for dinner. It was just the two of us with mom and dad, but it was a nice evening.

Last Sunday we went to the Hard Rock Cafe Detroit for lunch and then went ice skating at Campus Martius. I had so much fun. I had not been ice skating in more than 22 years!! We went for the Junior Circle event and there was one person that came (her name is Angie). We skated for a few hours and then we headed home.

It's Superbowl Sunday today and we have spent the entire day inside. It's like -2 outside so we are staying inside. Yesterday I met Jenny at Jungle Java and had lunch with her while her kids played and then I went to Westland Mall and got Steve's Valentine's Day present and then I got myself some perfume (Light Blue by Dolce and Gabbana). I also went to the teacher's store and bought some teacher stuff. :)

I'm really hoping that there's a snowday tomorrow due to the wind-chill. It's supposed to be like -20 or something insane like that. I was just telling Steve that this is the coldest winter that I can remember in the longest time. Take me somewhere warm!!

We just ordered Pizza Hut online so it'll be here in about 45 minutes (before the game starts). Steve made Mac-n-Cheese from scratch today and it was very good! It's going to be his signature dish for holiday/party events. :)

That's about all the latest and greatest from me. I did get my hair colored and cut (finally). I had a bit of a problem last week with my hair appointment-- I actually walked out because I got there at 4:30 and it was like 5:15 and she still wasn't ready for me when this guy walked in and she started doing his hair. I was so pissed I just got up and left. She called and made all these appologies and said I'd get a free cut and some free waxings... so I went back to her.

Yesterday was my niece's birthday. She's now two!! We sent her a card with some stickers and then I drew a picture of a monkey with a birthday hat for her. I thought it was cute!

Enough for now... GO COLTS!!!
