Getting Back to Normal

There were not a lot of things to write about this past week other than the weather.. We were out of school, and stuck inside on both Tuesday and Wednesday because of extreme temps.  On Saturday, we had a  snowstorm come through the area. Another 6+ inches were added to the  already deep snow on the ground.  Kyle was supposed to have robotics that day, but the roads were in really  bad shape. We were told that that it would be an optional meeting, and that we should only make the drive if we had a good snow vehicle, and were used to driving in adverse conditions.   Since driving in snow makes me nervous, and we do not have a 4 wheel drive, we decided to sit this one out.

 I took this picture of the mailbox this morning while getting the Sunday paper.  The snow is so deep that  my standing mailbox is almost buried.  I am not very happy that the groundhog said there will be 6 more weeks of winter today.  We have had more than our share already. 

Today Lucky is 1 month old.  She has gotten so big in the last two weeks.  At 4 weeks old, mice are not  quite considered "full grown", but there are  like a teenager in mouse time.  Once they reach 4 weeks, you would need to separate males and females in the same litter because could reproduce.  She has begun eating seeds in addition to her crisp bread in formula. We are weaning her off the formula to just pure water. In another week or two, her diet will be just like the other mice.   It was hard to get a picture of her today, because she would not stay still and most of the pictures were blurry.  

I think this upcoming will be the first week in a very long time that everything should be back to normal.  We have had so many snow days, and other days off that  it will take some getting used to being back in school five days in a row.  Time will tell!
