3:15 a.m. Time to start another day. I pack my husband Joe's lunch while he gets ready for work.
3:50 a.m, Joe left for work. It is raining outside.
4:45 a.m. Daughters Liz, 19, and Susan, 18, pack their lunches and get ready for work. It is really snowing and the ground is already covered with quite a few inches of snow. It is windy so our driveway is drifting shut with the blowing snow.
5:15 a.m. Elizabeth and Susan leave for the RV factory. Susan seems to be adjusting well to her job and a new schedule. They work in different areas of the factory so they don't always get home at the same time.
6 a.m. Time to get the children up for school. After taking a look outside at the weather, we go check our phone for messages. School has called saying there is a two-hour delay. Most of the children go back to bed except Lovina. I read while she puts together beads.
8 a.m. The rest of the children get up and after checking the messages on the phone we find out school has been cancelled. It is a white world outside and still blowing snow. Right now it seems impossible that spring begins next week! I fry Pon Hoss and make coffee soup and eggs for breakfast.
10:30 a.m. Dishes are washed and floors swept. Verena, 16, and Loretta,13, clean out the closet in Loretta and Lovina's bedroom. Benjamin 14, goes outside to shovel snow. Joseph, 11, Lovina, 9, and Kevin, 8 help me mix up some noodles.
1 p.m. Verena makes grilled cheese and eggs for everyone's lunch. They are done with the closest upstairs. They also cleaned out the dresser drawers in that bedroom. We are still working on the noodles but take time to eat lunch.
