  • Yesterday at some point, Campbell and Keaton discovered that Bentley had an ear infection. We think that it was bothering her last night since she was incredibly restless-couch to bed to rolling on the floor to barking out the window. Usually she sleeps all night long in our bed or on our couch. 
  • By 2 this morning I was pretty fed up with her-ear infection or not. Thankfully, she did calm down becuase I was about to move myself to the couch. 
  • Actually, that is where I am now, and the couch is pretty comfortable. I could camp out here all night long-and maybe I will tonight since it is a snow (or more likely an ice) night. 
  • I am like my Dad -I love a good storm and especially a winter storm, and I spent a good deal of the day watching the weather. Now if my power goes out and I have dirty dishes and dirty laundry, I will be changing my tune for sure. The last time that our power was out for some long, I can remember thinking about the laundry and dishes piling up. I possibly should get up now and start the dishes for this evening and start a load of clothes.
  • We did our school work today-sometimes Mondays go very well, and today was one of those days which was surely nice. After school was over, I had some soup while Graham did a few more practice tests for his permit.
  • Last week, he didn't pass so this week he was stressed about it and I was too. I dropped him off at that office, and Anderson and I went to the DMV to renew his license (you have to do that at 16, 18, and 21-I feel like it is a racket!) 
  • Last time Graham seemed to be done really quickly so I was glad when we didn't hear from him for a bit. (He had the car keys and was going to meet us there.) Then I still didn't hear from him so I took that as a good sign since there is another line you must wait in if you pass. 
  • Anderson and I were waiting in our line when I heard Anderson's phone ding. He eventually checked it, and Graham indeed did pass. We then celebrated a permit and a new license with Sonic before heading home. 
  • We then weren't home too long before we headed to Defy. Reagan was at work, and she had plans to head straight to church to keep kids tonight, but that was cancelled. We all made it home about the same time.
  • Anderson, Keaton, Robby and I did get to Costco, Sams and Walmart quickly this evening. We bought the ice storm staples such as cinnamon roll muffins, cookie dough, fruit snacks and ricotta cheese. 
  • When we came home, we pulled out all of the things-cheese dip, chili, potato soup, and even made english muffin pizzas. Eeryone ate, and now Robby and I are settled on the couch. I guess we were talking too much because Whitman left the room. 
  • So my evening plan now consists of-reading, looking out the window, eating a cinnamon roll muffin, and possibly a movie. I would say hot chocolate as well, but right now I am pretty stuffed so I am not even really sure about the muffin.
