Good news and a white Christmas? (pics)

The good news is that my breast is doing much better today. I’m still treating it until it’s completely healed, but it is feeling so much better already. I remembered last night that I have a rice heating pad, so I had Jody warm it up in the microwave for me and I used it a few times throughout the night. That helped a lot.

The other news is that we are in the middle of a huge blizzard expected to dump up to 2 feet of snow (or more) by tomorrow evening. We already have at least 6 inches I would say and it’s only supposed to continue throughout the day today, tonight and into tomorrow. Jody’s company let them leave early and he’s on a bus headed for home as I type. My parents, who were planning on driving home to MI tomorrow, are likely staying at least an extra day. And my sister, who’s last exam of the semester was scheduled for tomorrow, will probably have that postponed, as the majority of schools in the area are closed due to the weather.

Ava and my mom are decorating a gingerbread house right now, while Julian is sleeping on my dad’s chest. I’m going to jump in the shower while I have the chance. 🙂

Hope everyone stays warm, and those affected by this blizzard stay safe.

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…”

Update: At 6 p.m. we have at least a foot of snow and it’s still coming down.
Another update: At nearly 9 p.m., we have about 2 feet of snow and it’s still snowing! This is the most we’ve ever seen while living here (the past 6 years).
