I'm Feeling: like sneaking back home to take a nap in my soft soft bed
Background Noise: Get Rhythm by Joaquin Phoenix

We had a super fun weekend up at
Timber Wolf Lake - there were over 500 people there, mostly middle school kids, and it was a blast! It snowed all weekend, which was chilly, but it meant that we could go tubing and sledding and throw snowballs. The tubing and sledding part is cool, but the snowballs were a little out of hand - mostly bands of vagabond middle school boys were chucking balls of icy snow at innocent pedestrians. I think everyone at camp got hit in the face or neck at least once.

We had 20 people in our cabin - 17 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls, plus Kara, Amanda and me. I laughed SO much - they all crack me up - they're so silly, so loving, so real... it's just an honor to get to spend time knowing and loving those kids.
Even if it means you only sleep about 5 hours per night on a mattress on the floor (at least I had the mattress!)

Mark and I got back home yesterday around 4:30, devoured a large pizza, watched the Super Bowl through droopy eyelids and crashed into bed. It was great to go to sleep before midnight - I just wanted to sleep until 10 or 11. Maybe I can hit the hay early tonight. Maybe...

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

Hi KT!!!

I went to a wedding in Flint on Saturday and then drove home through the snow storm. It took us 45 minutes to find the highway because all the street signs were covered with snow so we didn't know where we were. :) I am glad you had a great weekend! I need to email you again soon. :) I check your blog on my lunch every few days (when I don't have kids coming in for help at lunch) but often don't have time to post a comment, but today I did! Yay! Hope all is well!

I was just thinking about you the other day, wondering how things are going for you on the West side of the state. Miss you lots!! :)
