Sunday Funnies

We got quite a bit of snow last night (4-6"). Usually, we get the wind with the snow, and the wind is what keeps our driveway clear. Last night, however, no wind. So, for the first time this winter, we were snowed in. We don't have a big tractor with a bucket (or any tractor for that matter). So, we waited for the snow to stop and we dragged out the trusty snow blower. DH did most of the work. I came out in the ninth inning and finished up. It was wonderful to be outside today - - crisp, cool, and no wind.
While we waited for the snow to stop, we spent a leisurely morning reading, playing, and sipping cocoa and coffee. I made some scrambled eggs with ham & cheese. DH picked up some bagels & cream cheese, so it was a lovely mid-morning meal.
Then, the remote control Jeep made it's way around the house, picking up passengers along the way.I've got a sick kid and a sick husband. DD missed school on Friday - - terrible cough and congestion. On Thursday, DH went to the doctor with an ear ache and received some antibiotics. So far, nothing has worked for him (his ear canal is almost swollen shut and his jaw is throbbing), so he just went to town to get a shot for the pain and a different antibiotic. This guy can take a lot of pain, so he must be absolutely miserable!

On Thursday, I found out that my high school volleyball/basketball coach and teacher passed away. He was only 52 years old - - apparently no sign of illness. Just gone. My heart aches for his family, students, and colleagues. He was a good man. May he rest in peace; and may his family find peace in their sorrow and joy in the inspirational life he lived.
