Snow Day :)

School's closed today. So, Junior and I are both home. His room already looks like a bomb exploded in a toy store and it's only 10:30 in the morning--LOL. It's going to be a long day :)

Good news, the scan of Dad's lungs came back tumor free. The doctor still did a biopsy of the inflamed tissue, but isn't expecting anything negative. Thanks to all for the thoughts and prayers.

This is a week or so late, but how about those Giants!! Best Super Bowl Ever!!

My dad is a die hard Giants fan. I remember sitting on his lap watching games when I was little asking "Who are the good guys?" Dad's very superstitious and always wore his lucky sweater when I was a kid. When he wore it they won, no sweater they lost. Pretty simple. Since Dad was in the hospital and Mom has probably long since gotten ride of the lucky sweater, I decided to wear my lucky pink fluffy bathrobe.

You're probably wondering why it's lucky. Well, taking a page from Dad, I was wearing it for the last game of the season, Giants and Patriots, for the first three quarters I wore the bathrobe, got hot and took it off during the fourth quarter and they lost. Figured if I wore it again and left it on they would pull off the upset and they did :)

Forget the amazing throw by Eli to David Tyree, forget the defense beat the heck out of Brady, the Giants won because I was wearing my lucky, pink, fluffy bathrobe for the entire game this time.

Got to get Junior to clean that room, have a good one :)

I love the pink robe, too, and glad I was able to get here after all.

I was very happy about the Giants, too. And the beagle winning yesterday, for some reason. I am not a dog person, but I liked that beagle.

What good news about your dad! I got me a pink fuzzy robe too. Love it. But I missed most of the game because of a stupid rehearsal. Oh, well, I most sad about the fact I missed the half time commercials. :)

Hi Tara! I'm so glad you're back. I've missed the stories about Jr. and his school adventures. And the books you're reading.

I'm so glad the biopsy came back clear. I hope you have better luck than me with getting your son to clean his room. My 13 year old thinks it's the worst thing in the world when i tell him to clean his room.
