snowy blowy night

Kathryn and I shoveled the driveway a little while ago, out in the dark snowy night. Mirielle is a nurse working night shifts, so she has to be able to pull into the driveway in the morning. The snowplow hasn't been by in hours, and there is almost no traffic. Margaret is stranded at Emily's house, Jonathan is stranded at his friend Toby's house, and Paul is stranded in....Chicago. He will be flying home in the morning. Well, not exactly HOME, to the airport an hour away. Let's just hope his flight isn't cancelled, and that roads are okay.

It is cozy in here tonight. Joseph and his two friends made pizzas for dinner, and we watched several episodes of, "Psych", under blankets on the couches. I cracked open the huge bag of Hershey kisses that are supposed to be for the Christmas stockings, shh. Camille hasn't been feeling well, she had a temperature of 100.9 today. She hasn't been eating, and has just wanted me to sit with her and cuddle her. Samuel helped me wrap a few presents, and I made some almond cookies for tomorrow's dessert tray, to go with the five pounds of almond joy fudge, red and green m&m's, and Hershey kisses. I don't know if I will make it to the Christmas feast because of Camille, and because I have to drive and pick up Paul...

I am thinking Suri is going to have those puppies soon. She was scratching and scrunching in her box earlier, but now she is sleeping peacefully on the couch. Soon, though.

And, I am tired. Perhaps I will be sensible tonight, and get some sleep instead of staying up half the night reading.

My day was good. I had the best cup of tea a little while ago, courtesy of Kathryn. Is this post disjointed and scatterbrained enough? Psych is still on, and six of us are here in the living room and I can't concentrate at all:) But I am not complaining. I AM looking forward to Paul getting home though.....

I love disjointed and scatterbrained posts. They make me fee right at home.
Safe travels to the airport and back today!

Thank you, Martha. I was thinking of you as I drove towards the city, we should most definitely go on some adventures one of these days. The roads weren't very good on the way there, but the way home was better, mostly because Paul drove home:)
