Right now I feel like I have a list a mile long of things to do and I don't want to even start on anything. That's not good. So, I'm going to ramble for a little bit and see if that helps........

This is McKaylie behind our house, right outside our fence. As you can see, it's up to her knees, there's also 1/2 of ice on top of the snow, so they have to break through it to walk around. They were actually picking up sheets of icey snow. You can see Vance holding a piece in the picture below. Maine weather is crazy!

We're also suppose to get more snow today. It's only suppose to be about an inch, but it's still overcast and gloomy out. That doesn't help to get me motivated to do anything.

My sister asked me the other day if I was caught up on all my internet stuff......I don't think I'll ever feel caught up really. Of course feeling like this doesn't help get anything done, doesn't it.

Noah is home today. He says he's sick, but I have serious doubts. I wanted to get to the commissary this morning, but now I'll have to wait. I'm not taking the boy with me, sick or not!

These are the icicles on the back of our house. We knock down the ones over the yard so that they won't fall on the dogs. That could be bad............

Noah has decided that he wants a guitar and is completely obsessed by it. It's all he talks about. He even told me not to give McKaylie her lunch money today so that he could use it for his guitar. Selfless is not a good word to describe Noah.

Myshel's "boyfriend" broke up with her last week. I can't say that I was sad about it, but it did make me sad to see her hurting so much. Dumb boys! This week, however, she's seeing a truer side to the "ex" and it's just not very pretty. I'm actually glad about that, because now she's realizing that guys are not always as they seem. It's also helping her stop hurting. Oh, and maybe I should mention that she already has other guys calling her.......when I told her she'd have guys waiting in line, I didn't think that would literally be the case!----James, stop calling her, she doesn't want to talk to you!!!!!----

McKaylie has become a reading maniac. She's started reading 3 books in the last couple of days, one about a dog, one about a wolf pack, and one about fairies. I don't care what she reads as long as they're good books and she wants to read. A year ago it was like pulling teeth trying to get her to read, so this is a wonderful change! I'm loving it. I just wish she didn't want to retell every story she reads to me, though.

Vance has decided that he doesn't want to go camping this summer in Wyoming becasue there are grizzly bears in that area. He tends to get himself worked up about stuff like this, too. I'm not sure how we're going to get around this issue with him. On the other hand, I'm not too keen on the idea of camping with grizzly bears either!

I watched the last 5 minutes of the super bowl. It took about 35-40 minutes, but it was the last 5 minutes on the clock. It was pretty exciting. I was rooting for the Steelers (that's been Chad's team every since I can remember). Most people around here were rooting for the Cardinals. Chad went and watched the game with some friends and out of 6 guys, he was the only one cheering on the Steelers. I guess he had the last laugh in the end when they won, huh.

I noticed these icicles stuck in the snow outside of Myshel's window. Vance and McKaylie put them there. I'm not sure I should ask................I might just let this one go!

I'm enjoying getting to know FaceBook, although I just don't have time for all the stuff that you can do on it. It's amazing to me some of the people that have shown up on there. I've been able to catch up with people that I haven't heard or seen in 20 years. It's been fun!

Well, I've wasted time, now I have to get busy, although I still don't feel like it..................

I enjoyed the ramblings of Cindy's brain.

I enjoyed this post, too. :-)

That is so cool that you are in the same ward as the Berry's now!
