Five on Friday

This week literally has dragged on forever. Monday was technically a holiday, however I had to go into work. Also, Monday night they were calling for yet more snow into Tuesday morning. Joe picked up the boys earlier then normal from my parents, so we were able to have dinner at a reasonable time together. Tuesday morning we woke up to a delayed openings since it snowed all night. Thankfully, the boys school was still open, so I could drop them off and head into the office. 

And just like dejavu, Wednesday night into Thursday we got more snow. Weather reports were calling for anywhere between 3 inches to 14 inches. My office had closed and so did the boys school. I had to do thing and and work from home, so Thursday was a stressful day in our house! 

I hope you had a good week. If you are in Texas or an area effected by the winter storms, my heart is with you and prayers are being offered. 

Joe and I watch the much talked about Framing Britney documentary on Hulu. It brought me back to being a teenager and idolizing her. After watching the documentary I feel so bad for her. I just kept saying to Joe, 'why can't the paparazzi leave her alone'. I full want to make a sign and stand out somewhere and say "FREE BRITNEY". If you watched it, what did you think of it? 

Amazon was having a sale last week on a kindle so I snatched one up since I had my eye on it. The only quiet time I usually get is at night before bed, so this is the perfect way to read while snuggled up. I had to finish the last actual book I was reading before I could start using it though.

Speaking of that book, I literally started this book in the Summer when Joe and I took a trip to Cape May for the weekend. Like I said, my quiet time is very sparse, so reading goes to the back burner often. The author is actually originally from the area where I live, so in all her books she gives references back to Easton, PA which is fun to read. This was actually the first book I've read from her. My thoughts on the book.. There was A LOT going on. Actually in the beginning it was hard to keep it all in track. Especially since I didn't steadily read it, some points I had to think back to who this character actually was. There was also to process from each character. Each one had a secret to tell. Without giving anything away, when the book ended I still had some questions about peoples roles in the death of the victim and wondering what happened to certain people at the end of the book.

From the back cover:

It's Nantucket wedding season, also known as summer-the sight of a bride racing down Main Street is as common as the sun setting at Madaket Beach. The Otis-Winbury wedding promises to be an event to remember: the groom's wealthy parents have spared no expense to host a lavish ceremony at their oceanfront estate.

But it's going to be memorable for all the wrong reasons after tragedy strikes: a body is discovered in Nantucket Harbor just hours before the ceremony-and everyone in the wedding party is suddenly a suspect. As Chief of Police Ed Kapenash interviews the bride, the groom, the groom's famous mystery-novelist mother, and even a member of his own family, he discovers that every wedding is a minefield-and no couple is perfect. Featuring beloved characters from The CastawaysBeautiful Day, and A Summer AffairThe Perfect Couple proves once again that Elin Hilderbrand is the queen of the summer beach read.

Thursday we had another snow day. Joey & Vinny's school had closed due to the snow/ice. Joe had accounts to visit before it got too bad, which left me home with the boys and working throughout the day remotely. The morning wasn't too bad, since it was new to be home with mom so the boys played in the playroom, read books and had only a few bickering moments. By the afternoon I caved though, and put on Disney+ so that I could get on a call and finish off  some things I had to concentrate on. I literally turned my back for a second to make another coffee and came back into the living room to find my plant holding on by a leaf in the pot and the floor like this..

Joe and I started watching a new series on Netflix called The Crew with Kevin James and it's a comedy centered around a Nascar team. Even if you aren't into racing or Nascar, it is sooo funny. Last night we watched four episodes (about 30 minutes each) and were laughing so much!

Hope you all had a great week and an even better weekend. For us, we are expecting yet more snow.. so we are surely THINKING SPRING and for warmer temps to melt it all!
