    Big Night

    Tonight is the big night for the little kids, Bubba, and myself. Spiritually speaking. Tonight, Bubba and I will be confirmed as Catholics in front of a very large congregation that’s causing my incessant stage fright to flair up. I’ve been moaning and groaning about it all week. It’s that bad. To make it worse, they have saved us a spot in the front row and we will be the first to take communion. In front of everyone. All eyes on me.

    Two Days

    For two days now, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to put on the kids socks, shoes, coats, gloves, and hats.  Every couple of hours, they want to go outside again and I repeat the whole process for each one.  To keep it all dry, I am throwing everything into the dryer between each outing.  It’s one of the downfalls to getting snow in the south; it melts as quickly as it fell.  The kids know they have to soak it up while they can, hence the constant in and out. Other than that, I am delighted to see the white stuff on the ground, even if…
