Strange Week==Giveaway!

Last week was a strange week…weather: first mountains of snow, then freezing rain again, fog then sunshine…whoa, wait 30 minutes and it all changes again. Weird!

Driving kids to school in weather…almost caused two accidents (oops and sorry), almost hit a group of birds on the way to the high school, then almost hit a kitty on the way back, and you got it, almost hit a dog after dropping off my son at the middle school. All in the same day?? Weird! 

Then we all have had a persistent cough.  We have gone thought bags of cough drops, bottles of hand sanitizer and bars of soap.  Thinking we are almost done with sickness I was next to immobile come Friday night due to a migraine. This led me to going to bed early and proceeded to have the strangest dreams. Forget about sleep with all the Weird dreams.

OK, finally Saturday with a pounding at the door at 6 AM and there stands a police officer....heart starts pounding. Apparently our truck and 14 others were broken into. They got the "Bandit’s" (thanks Vicky for the perfect word) who committed the crimes and were RETURNING the property!!
 We have such old vehicles and keep nothing of value in there but they had taken the $25 dollars of emergency gas money. We had heard there were vehicles being broken into to get the garage door openers and then they would use those to break in the houses. We have our garage door opener so all is well and thankfully only this and even got our $25.00 back. Weird!

Then all the little weird things—lost items, strange homework, computer acting up, and all the “nit-noy” stuff as my husband calls it.

I am trying to keep Christmas in my heart this whole year. 
So strange and weird not withstanding I will be having a giveaway!!

This little snowman ornament-in honor of the weather, holding a heart-in honor of the month of February, and a star to give a gold star to the Police who try their best to keep us all safe and protected!
