Yay!

Today I find myself unexpectedly at my brother's house in the Phoenix area. I have been in California since the 22nd of February and was supposed to be home yesterday. Instead, the weather decided otherwise and during my brief stop in Phoenix, my flight home was cancelled. I was able to get on a flight for Tuesday and decided to just go with that and take the time to spend with my family. Hard to complain about the delay, even though I've been gone from home just about long enough. In spite of such a long absence, my family has done very well without me, which, rather than making me feel like I'm not needed, makes me happy that they have learned enough to function independently when they need to. Yay them! And Yay! for my awesome sister-in-law for welcoming me to her home for two days with absolutely no notice. And Yay! that I get to see my new baby niece when I thought I wouldn't see her till Christmas! And yes, even Yay! for the snow. I hope it will still be there when I get home. It is always nice to have a little actual winter weather to help one anticipate the spring even more. Of course I'm not currently in the middle of it, so my apologies to those for whom the snow is a frustration.

  1. Oh yeah for you! That is awesome. Actually the snow day is a welcome change. I love that my children are actually seeing what real snow looks like

  2. Hey Kellie! I saw you have a blog, so I've been catching up. I always knew we had a lot in common but wow! Reading some of your older posts felt like I could have written them myself. The snow is beautiful. Hopefully it will still be hanging around when you get home. We measured it here and we got 11 inches! Cole has been wearing his jammies inside out for the last couple of weeks so he thinks he got us this snow...How's the 15th looking? Have a safe trip home.

  3. So glad you've been able to have a good trip! We are currently in the 70's around here so I couldn't believe how chilly I saw it was back East. Have fun with your fam in Phoenix and I hope you have a good flight home!

  5. How fun to be in Phoenix with your brother. I wouldn't mind being there instead of here. I hope you have a safe trip home. I'm pretty sure the snow will still be here.
