Five on Friday

Here we are at the end of yet another week. This has been a strange week around here and I am feeling pretty discombobulated. Without further ado here is what is happening around these parts.

1) We had a nice Valentine’s Day. I made steaks and mashed potatoes for dinner and red velvet cupcakes for dessert.  Clark enjoyed his gifts – a garland of hearts I knit, and a Spiderman book and LEGO set. 

2) Monday was a day off for Clark and I. We made our traditional day off of school to the mall for lunch and playing in the kids area. It is always a zoo there but we got there about an hour later than ususal and had to wait forever for our food. I thought I was going to pass out from low blood sugar and it took a couple of days to recover. 

3) I put in a request to leave work a half hour early next Wednesday for Clark’s dentist appointment and it was denied. When I pushed back and asked why I was given a BS reason but my boss, like any bully, backed down. I really do not want to have to fight for every time off request but I have a feeling this is the way it is going to be.

4) It has been bitterly cold. When I got in my car at 7:30 this morning it was -13 degrees. School has been cancelled the last 2 days because of the wind chills. I always said that I can deal with the cold and hate the snow but I am starting to reconsider that statement. 

5) We are three days into Lent and I am doing well with my goals. I really wanted to stop and get McDonald’s for breakfast because I usually treat myself to it on paydays but I just drove on by. 

Here are some pictures for the week.
