Well…..12 hours from now I will be living it up at my kids’ school…..dancing the night away at the annual “Blizzard Ball”. Are you jealous? Typically, I’d be trying to think of any which way to get Jorden to take them instead of me…..but to be perfectly honest, tonight I’m kind of looking forward to it! It’s a night out, right? Or at least closer than I come to a night out most Friday nights!!

There’s something nice about knowing that I’ll run into a LOT of parents all at once, and I’ll have a chance to catch up with the ones I haven’t seen in a while. Which, for me, is pretty much ALL of them! Life has a way of keeping me busy enough that I kinda forget about keeping in touch……which I’ve come to realize is just how it’s going to be. Hey – at least I see them at the Blizzard Ball, right??

But there’s another reason I’m looking forward to it…..which is that the girls could NOT be more excited. They’ve been talking about it all month and gearing up for it all week, and just yesterday Ellia asked if we could go over the “rules” for the night to ensure she could have a REALLY good time since it is SUCH a special night!
