Have at it!

The only thing I like about Mondays is that after everyone being home all weekend I get the house relatively to myself. Zion is still here, but he barely comes out of his room. It is so blissfully quiet.
The weekend promised snow and let me down again. Go ahead and think I'm crazy, but I was really looking forward to it. I got Quinn a sled for Christmas and I want him to be able to use it! There is something so wonderful about sitting in front of a warm fire when the snow is falling. It just isn't the same when it's nothing but freezing rain.
Zion's doctors decided last week that he should continue homebound schooling. He has two small pressure wounds that need to be healed before he can have the spinal fusion, so they want him off his butt as much as possible. At this point he is scheduled for surgery April the 15th and is on standby in case of cancellations. He wasn't too upset that he doesn't get to return to school and knows that if he heals before the surgery he can return for a bit. The poor kid is going to spend most of his 9th grade year at home. Thanks be for the internet so he can have a social life! He has friends from all over the world on Xbox and online and can talk and play with them. If he would have been hurt even 30 years ago, life would not be nearly as kind to him. He would not have been put in the regular school system and wouldn't have the opportunity to make as many friends as he has.
This week I will be ordering his bike for him! I hope to be able to get a story on the news or in the paper about it in the spring. We still have not met the lady who raised the money for the bike and I am looking forward to meeting her when the bike is delivered. There are some very amazing people in the world. Gives me hope!
In one week they will start remodeling my kitchen! I am so excited. I got to pick out appliances and they were ordered already. I need to get to Home Depot to check out samples for the counters, floor and backsplash this week. I will have a double oven!! Oh the things I can make now! Who wants to come for the new kitchen party!?

I feel exactly the same about snow. Well, actually, I'm like a big kid, I wanna play in it with my husband and son. :) I'm from NJ and moved to TN a little over a year ago. We don't get much snow here. :(

The Internet is (indeed) a great resource!

{Next time we get snow, I'll send it your way.} :D

Lucky you on the new kitchen.
There are amazing people at there, angels living among us. Zion is a lucky kid.
I like snow too. However...let me be at work or at home. I don't really want to travel in it.
