Wild and Crazy times at our house!

Wow, what a wild and crazy week it has been. First, we are thrilled to have Michael (far left) here for a few weeks, home from Iraq! What a great blessing for all the guys to hang out, play X-box and eat all the food in the house! My son (middle) has been blessed to have this group of guys as friends since we moved here his senior year in high school. Now that they are in college and the Army, it is always a special time when we can gather together for a steak dinner, even if it was a bar-b-que in the snow!
On Sunday morning we woke up to big fluffy flakes of snow. We only see a little snow every three to four years, but so far this one is much more than normal. After the snow we have had ice, with freezing rain and lots more snow predicted for tomorrow. My 12 minute drive home from work took over an hour this evening as the roads have melted and frozen into sheets of ice.
I made a quick stop at the grocery for more food...feeding five guys for days requires more milk and food than you can imagine! With the threat of being stuck at home into the middle of next week, it was time to stock up!
Jessie is the latest addition to our crazy life, joining us this evening. She is the wonderful dog of a good friend, whose husband was admitted to the hospital for emergency surgery. Since the hospital is 45 minutes away, she will be staying there overnight and needed someone to take care of the dog. Of course, five guys would love a dog! But what she doesn't realize is that I'm afraid they may never return the dog!
