I need to vent! As most of you know I am one of 2 Co-Directors at my daughter's preschool. The job isn't hard, at times it can be stressful. The part that really sucks lately is the gossip or chit chat. Everyone has something to say, especially previous/current board members. Ideas are welcome, that is why there is a board. But these people had their opportunity to become a Co-Director and they didn't take it. I did. It's beginning to get to me, I am thinking that maybe emotionally this isn't a good week for me, LOL. I miss just going into the school and talking with the other mom's. I have had other jobs where I was in charge, but this is ridiculous. I just want to say stop talking about people. I hear a lot about the other Co-Director and I wonder do people say stuff about me too. I used to get frustrated about the other CD but now I feel bad because it isn't fair. She is and I am doing the best we can do. It's just so frustrating and so small town!! UGH!!

I see snow!!
The part of Connecticut where I moved is often referred to as the "Litchfield Hills". It gets colder here and when it snows it SNOWS!!
Well today it has been one of those days rainy, wet and windy. I was just at my sink washing some dishes and what do I see? No more rain. I see snow!!
Emily is very excited, but wants to know where the big piles are,LOL.
I always love the first snowfall, of course this one won't amount to anything. But it is really pretty!!

Sometimes blogging brings me back to high school. Reading the comments other bloggers leave on my blog makes me feel "oh, they like me. They keep coming back". What makes me feel even better is when I see my blog in their blog list. I feel like "yay, they like me that much!!". But what if someone removes your blog from their list? Did they remodel and just forget you. Are you not bloggy friends anymore? It's crazy how a list on someones blog somehow makes you feel important. Since my move I haven't been blogging or commenting as much as I did before. I feel like I am losing my blogging friends. I go to my reader and see whats going on with you but sometimes don't have a minute to comment, for that I am sorry. I am really trying to get back in the swing of things, I miss it.

I just came back from Maine. I went with my Mom and Emily for Columbus weekend. Did some Christmas shopping and me shopping, mostly Emmy shopping. It was nice to get Away, but I missed my hubby and my home. It felt so good to come home to my home. It's nice that this place it starting to really feel like home to me.
While on vacation, I started Twilight, I didn't get too far into it yet (I couldn't sit for too long and read quite yet) but I like it, and I think I am starting to get into the good stuff. I bought the first 2 books, I had lunch with Heather and she recommended getting at least the two because they were quick reads. I can't wait to really get into it, I plan on reading later today after I unpack and do some laundry.
Emily got sick while we were in Maine, she threw up on Saturday night. So weird. She was fine the next day.
We went to the beach at Sunset and it was awesome, the sky was purple and pink and it reflected on the water. I got some great shot of Emily playing in the waves. She had her rain boots on but they soon became full of water. She said to me "Mommy my socks will get wet" I was like "Sweetie it is too late for that I can hear your piggies squish squashing already!"
What did you do for the long weekend????

Oh and I bought this...
The price wasn't that bad, and it was supposed to finish 2-4 salads. Yeah right. Cheese maybe for 2-3 salads. Croutons 2-3 salads. But chicken- definitely 1-2 (and that is pushing it) salads. But it tastes good.

I can't believe it?!?!
I know many people who have never been called to jury duty. Some are young and some are old.
I have been summoned at least six times if not more. My husband has also been summoned several times. Why?? I thought this was supposed to be random? Is it because we lived in an area where there were many cases? Just our luck of the draw?? I wish I had that luck in other drawings. I hopefully will be dismissed due to my move to the country. We have our own small court house here in town, so I am hoping I am out of the other district. My first experience with jury duty was in Hartford and for a murder trial. Thankfully after being questioned I was not asked to sit on the jury.
You can be called multiple times, but if you have "served" within the last three years you can be dismissed. If you are summoned and don't have to show up for jury duty you have fulfilled your obligation for the three yrs. I have received several summons....Had to go to Hartford once, went through voi dire and everything, just wasn't picked. I received a summons when we moved in together and got dismissed because I moved out of the district I was summoned to. Was summoned within my three yr time frame 2x (nice) and When I was pregnant I was summoned so I got out of that because I was a new Mom. I think I was summoned another time or two and just didn't have to go. But seriously- WTH- why do I get picked all the time???????
