Cancer Sucks!

Just a note to tell everyone to pray for my dad. He suddenly was hospitalized on Wednesday and now we know he has cancer in his lungs. They won't know until Monday or Tuesday where it started. We just know he is on oxygen and had a crazy day. We thought today might be his last day; however, we just don't know. We just hope that he can hold on until we get the lab results and can start some kind of treatment immediately. They won't start any treatment until they know exactly where it is in his body and it takes a couple of days for the tissue to grow or something in the lab. I don't know why!!! I wish they knew NOW!!! Cancer sucks...Yes, it does. Just pray for my daddy. I don't know what I would do without him!

Snow Day...Shmow Day!

Okay...this is a picture out of my back door at school yesterday of it snowing. First of all it was a teacher workday. BLAH! Second, it was snowing and not sticking. Why the heck not? Well if you can see the little teeny tiny dots...that's all we got (I can't even see them, but I promise there were some!). But it did "snow" all day when I was at work. Too bad it didn't stick on the ground. What a total bummer! I want some snow on a SCHOOL DAY!!!!!!!!

These Are of Few of My (Christmas) Favorite Things (2008)

When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don't feel so bad.

Here are a few of my favorite things from this Christmas:

My mom gave me "Onion Goggles" in my stocking. Hubby wearing them is pretty funny!
This is me with the onion goggles and then my "peacock" rainboots from my mom and dad. Love em!
I love getting Christmas cards. Although I was a bit of a slacker this year and also I found some I did not even send out like the day after Christmas. I stink...I know. I need to be more organized!
I love this frame that is monogrammed that my mom gave me. I put a wedding picture in it!
I splurged this year and paid $29.99 for the bow that my HUSBAND wanted on top of the tree.
LOVE LOVE my new ivory coat that hubby gave me. He even picked it out himself. (I told him NOT too!!!! :)
My mother in law gave us this cool island to go in the kitchen. It was made out of an old wine keg.
A Bed, Bath, and Beyond find...I like my little snowman rug!
My sister gave me this vinyl letter to go on my bedroom wall. I love it!
My mother in law gave us these Georgia trays. Apparently your stuff won't slip! We haven't tried them out yet but I am sure we will. GO DAWGS!

So what was your favorite thing? I would for you to tell me!
