Sadness

I was going to write a post about the exorbitant amount of snow days that Jack has had this year (8) not to mention delays and early dismissals. I was going to write about our
l. . . o. . . n. . . g
day yesterday stuck in the trailer together, playing Candyland, Operation, Princess dress up, and I Spy Bingo while the never ending ice and snow pelted down outside. I was going to write about how the sound of the phone ringing with our automated school closing announcement was starting to really get on my nerves. I was going to write about starting to count down the days (6) until I leave for St. Thomas. I was going to write a lot of things, but when I checked my e-mail this morning I saw that there was an updated post about my little Carepage cutie that I follow Coleman. Tragically, sadly, unfairly, he lost his 2 1/2 year battle and died Monday night. So now I am just sad. Sad and mad. And sad. Sad for his parents and his twin brother Caden. Sad for all the parents. And glad that I got to spend the day stuck in a trailer with my 2 healthy children playing games. Cancer sucks. That's all.
On another prayer, if you can send out some extra thoughts for my Nanny who is in the hospital with Pneumonia, I would appreciate it. She's going to be fine I'm sure, a little rest and recuperation (along with some tasty antibiotic's) and I'm sure she will be back where she wants to be soon, which is HOME!.
