and this time we're not taking the brunt of it. Yippee! (or should I say yet because it is supposed to last into tomorrow?) All I know for sure is: school is still on with no delays. Last night, Hubs had to get up in the middle of the night to go in and meet with his crews -- the predictions were for snow starting around midnight then changing to ice ... then rain. He was home a few hours later and is resting comfortably in bed ... or at least as comfortably as you can get with a toddler in your bed. :-)
The weather channel is toting it as a MONSTER storm. It is spanning over 30 states putting them into at least winter storm watches if not advisories. The National Guard has been mobilized in Missouri. Please, if your local news stations tell you to stay inside - stay the heck inside where it is safe. All else can wait.
Today is February 1, 2011. D-day for me. I kept saying WW is going to be starting ... now. Then tomorrow. Then next week. While we have incorporated a few great WW meals into our lives during the past month, it has been nothing like it should be. Today is the day. For me at least. Hubs is always careful about what he eats. Me, not so much. But here we are, again. Overweight and feeling it. Needing to lose the poundage in order to make myself, my wonderful hubs and my kidlets happy. Maybe after I lose it, I won't "lose it" on them anymore - I won't be so snappish and yell so much. *fingers crossed* I am trying to work on that regardless of the weight loss.
Tomorrow, I will get up when the alarm goes off at 4:45. I will get up and do either Fluidity or 1/2 hour on the treadmill. I will.
And, now, I will get off of my soapbox, finish getting ready and start waking the kidlets up for a new day!
