Fast approaching Valentines Day

My friend Jen over at WOW hit the nail on the head with her posting about Valentines Day. I don't have to add a thing to it.

The Beginning of February

Well lets see....2 inches of ice, then 4 inches of snow on top of that!!!! And it's Super Bowl week, the kids have been out of school almost a week. I just saw on the news how the news reporters are complaining about our weather this week, I mean really let me see both the teams, and most of the fans are from up north so they should be used to this weather. But let me reinterate this is unusual for TEXAS to have this type of weather!!! Do they think that we can control the weather and just flip a freaking switch and make the sun shine and it be 80 degrees outside? Cause rest assured if we could do that IT WOULD HAVE BEEN DONE A FEW WEEKS AGO!!!!
I thought after 4 days of being cooped up in the barn that the girls would like to come out and move around abit, HAHAHAHA was I WRONG!!!! After 10 minuted I finally pried the gate out of the ice and opened it up along with the tarp curtain that we used to knock off the wind. They, all 9 of the ones in the barn, walked to the line on the ground between dirt/hay and the ice, looked up at me and seemed to laugh!!! They then turned around and went to the back of the barn. We had 5 chickens escape yesterday and had to chase them back into the coop (which was not a fun endeaver)
Today we let the kids run and play outside in the snow and we decided to take Rhett outside. He is our escape artist, if there is away out of the yard he will find it. He manages to slip his collar and leash of course. Had a good run around the back yard, got PO's that the chickens were not out for him to chase, yet he still wanted to run and gave the kids a good workout trying to catch him. David ended up having to tackle him and lay top of him in the snow until I could get to them and hold Rhett. Poor kid he was covered in snow, I came in and made him some cocoa to warm him up.
I would like to say that I have gotten a bunch of school work done for me but that would be lieing, I have spent alot of time playing on the computer and sleeping. This weekend I will have to buckle down and finish my Forensic Sociology homework and reading for Monday's class. I am so ready for the kids to go back to school, and the funny thing is so are they!!! They are actually bored of playing games, watching TV and spending time with family.

February 1, first day of the freeze

Ok lets see, I don't think it got over 25 degrees today. Even my goats thought I was crazy today, I tried to let them out and they looked at me like I was insane. Cooped up inside today with the kids, and then bob got sent home early from work!!!! That's ok kinda got productive today, we banded Rocky today, man he is not a happy camper. I should have been working on school work but I just didn't have the brain power to do it. Tomorrow I will buckle down and do some work as well as hopefully working on our room somemore.
It is cold in here as well as outside. First project after the thaw out is to seal these windows!!!! Welp enough for now, gonna go play some games.
