1. While I was gone last weekend for Pattie's funeral, my husband installed a cat door in our basement door so that the cats can come and go and get to their litter box and food without worrying about the dog. Unfortunately, they can't figure out how to push open the flap so we have it taped up for now. And the crazy puppy stands guard over it 24/7 and cries because he can't fit through the hole.
2. Emily has had the best week and I'm so proud of her. She absolutely loves her academic super bowl team and was told earlier this week that she made the competition team AND varsity. As a freshman. They got 24/25 questions correct at their first competition, won the invitational and are working their way towards a state title.
3. Neither Tom nor I have had the best of weeks. I've tried to make lists and get back into the routine, but it just hasn't happened. Luckily, we have each other when these types of things hit and we always find a way to pull each other through.
5. We had a huge snowstorm earlier this week and I'm kind of done with winter now. This hasn't been a bad winter at all but it can be over now. It's time for good news, sunshine, daffodils, and the sounds of the birds returning to the backyard.
Have a great weekend!
