For next weekend's plans, I had an EVOC class, which teaches me to drive an ambulance. It's necessary for my EMT class. I'm kinda looking forward to it, but mostly not. I need to know how to drive those, but I hate the idea of driving a big box like that. Plus, the class is 7-10 pm on Friday, then from 8am - 5pm both Saturday and Sunday, so my weekend is completely shot. The class is 45 minutes away too, so I'll be leaving early and getting home late. Major bummer. It's only one weekend though and I will survive! I am really enjoying the EMT class. We're about 1/4 of the way through right now. Even better will be when I get to use my certification up at camp this summer! I'm so excited to be spending another summer outside, in God's beautiful creation, working with my family!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I had H3 dressed in little cream-color courderoy pants and a little green and pink shirt. She looked so adorable! I say "looked". That outfit lasted until about 1:00, by which time the shirt was wearing green beans and the pants showed the results of an explosive diaper. Sigh, so much for cute little outfit #1. Now we'll have to see how long the new outfit remains clean!
H1 called this morning and was expressing his concern that today would be his first St. Patty's Day without corned beef and cabbage, seeing as I'd cooked our only corned beef in the house a week or two ago. I assured him he would just fine. Little does he know that one is cooking in the crockpot already, along with cabbage, and I'll be adding potatoes soon. Hahaha. He underestimated the sneakyness! (ignore the spelling please, my higher brain functioning isn't there today).
I can hardly believe that I just cleaned this house yesterday. It looks like a bomb went off in here. That's my cue to clean again, I suppose!

It needs a little tlc with decorating and landscaping, but nothing I can't handle.
It snowed here on Sunday night for the first time in years. There was only about 3 inches of the stuff, but plenty of ice. Enough that they canceled school both Monday and Tuesday! Main roads weren't a problem either day, but since we live in the middle of nowhere, they don't plough the backroads and the buses couldn't get through. H1 enjoyed both days off though, and we got a lot done around the house--including moving out the futon we sold and bringing in our new couch! We also had a few snowball fights. Even H3 poked her nose outside.
I only took her outside for a few minutes, since she'd been under the weather last week. Apparently though, that under the weather has continued and she woke up from a nap on Wedn. with a body temp of 103. I took her into the pediatrician and she has some sort of bacterial bug and fluid behind both ears. Here's to the first round of antibiotics. Yesterday she still had a fever around 101 most of the day. Today it's been close to normal, so far. Just praying she will get better!
Lots more to do and I have to pick up H1 from work today. Hopefully more later....
