Homework to get back into the routine of, soccer practices, basketball practices that we didn't make it to because we really needed to get some orthodontic work done for Tristan, and so on.
Today we woke up to a 2 hour delay that turned into a closure so no school. The storm didn't really hit our area until noon so I made it to work at 10 and stayed for a few hours. Then it was off to cram in all of the errands I needed to get done in case we were snowed in another day. Now we're at home which is messy and gets on my nerves but I don't have the motivation to do anything about it. You know the feeling right?
Plus the boys are stir crazy. They NEED physical activity to burn off their energy and it didn't happen today. Now they are wrestling and fighting all over the place! I am so thankful we have a basement that I can ban them to because that's what's about to happen. NBA started today and the couch is calling my name.

I had an appt to get my hair cut in the mall last week and decided that I had some extra time so I walked down to the nail salon for a mani/pedi. When the lady (she was vietnamese) was doing the massage for the manicure she had my palm facing her and stopped in the middle of the rub to stare at it. She not only was staring at it intensely but then rubbed the center of my palm to look at it even harder. She looks at me but it's not a happy look. All I can say is that it seemed concerned, sad, and worried. I told myself it wasn't anything and just to let it go.
I'm watching the tv they have there on the wall and on to the next hand we go. You will not believe it but it all happens again with the next palm! Followed up with her asking, "You okay? Everything okay?"
I didn't ask her what she saw because I didn't want to know. All I know is that she saw something and it wasn't really good. She had such a sad, concerned look on her face the rest of the time I was there. Weird huh?
The boys and my friends find this story hilarious! That same night I spilled a bowl of ranch dip into my lap at a restaurant and Aidan said, "Maybe that's what she saw on your hands mom." Followed by extreme laughter.

We did get out Saturday night to watch some basketball games at a local high school but that was it. Tristan had already slipped and hit his elbow in the grocery store parking lot so we were extra careful at the high school but it was straight ice. You should have seen Opal slipping and sliding down our driveway at home, hilarious!!
Here's a cool picture of Tristan that was forwarded to me after last weekend. He was taking a corner kick, you can tell he puts his all into it!!

This kind of shows how high up it was. I felt sorry for the elderly people trying to make it up those stairs. It was a work out and once you got seated you felt like you might take a skydive. Not kidding.

Notice I'm hoping??? That's because the boys are each playing in a tournament this weekend and if either one of their teams make it to the finals, that game is scheduled at the same time as the football game. Oh well, if anything - we can make it to the football game at halftime! (Let's just hope I don't get beat up wearing my Cowboys stuff into Invesco Field.)

No, I don't look like this horse!!!! But after seeing the chiropractor yesterday (who by the way is an extremely nice lady) this is what I've been diagnosed with. In her opinion, it explains my lower back pain and migraines! Too bad it doesn't help me get that bubble butt I wished I had.
The appointment started out with a little chat about my medical history and reasons for visiting. Then I had xrays taken and laid down on a massaging bed to stretch out. We reviewed the xrays which were extremely enlightening! Then I finished with the adjustment which didn't take long and wasn't painful. There were a lot of noises (pop, snap, crack) but I thought it was cool! She's going to come up with a treatment plan for me and I see her again on Friday for another adjustment.
