|First night the tree is up|
Justin and Paige left on Sunday afternoon and made it home safely. School was canceled for Monday due to the icy conditions and the many homes without power. The kids and I went to bed early. It was a long weekend.

So we loaded up and went to Maize, Kansas. This is close to Justin. He booked us into the Holiday Inn Express there. A pretty new hotel and very nice I must say. Then he met us there and took us to dinner. Harley enjoyed the pool and Darian enjoyed the gym. And granny enjoyed the warmth!
At 6:15 this morning I received a text message that my power was back on. But we stayed and ate breakfast, visited the gym again (Darian, not us girls) and took a morning nap. We arrived home about noon. The kids changed, grabbed their book bags and I drove them to school. Life was back to normal.
Power went off again. And came on. And went off. It's now on. Cross your fingers. I spent the afternoon dealing with Cox Communications trying to get my cable and internet back on. They kept telling me they were showing that I had no problem here. Duh, I was!! About 30 minutes ago we finally got TV and internet. I am about to go pick up Harley from basketball practice. Hopefully this will be the last ice storm for us this year!!!!
