Happy March (but it's still winter here in Michigan)...

It's still quite cold and snowy here in Michigan. Usually the normal snowfall totals around 40 inches for the season and the last few years it hasn't even reached that. However, I just heard the other day that we have had more than 70 inches now here. And it's been so cold that we haven't had the usual melt-off as in past years so winter seems endless!
My first week of being officially employed went well. We only had 4 days of school and then a developmental day on Friday where I went to a non-violent crisis intervention training. Unfortunately I also came down with a nasty cold on Thursday which has slowed me down all weekend and not much was accomplished around the house. Howard went bowling Friday night without me and reported back that the team took 3 points. We are still down near the bottom though with only another couple months to go.
Not much to report with the family happenings either. Amber and Andy both took trips for work, Andy to Miami, Amber to NYC. Tyler is busy with school and his new job at a health food store. He works a few hours in the evening so it's fitting into his schedule well. Scott was officially on Spring Break from school last week but just spent the week relaxing around the house. So, that's all the news worth reporting. The pups are bored and sleep all the time. Today I made a trip to the hardware store for black oilers and picked up these cows tails. They really enjoy chewing them up and the look of bliss on their faces tells the story! We didn't make it to Charlie's puppy class this past week as the roads were icy again. Seems every Tuesday the weather stinks and we can't go. So far we've missed 2 classes of the 3 that were held. Guess I should have waited until April to start.

Have a good week everyone!
