Good morning, MMC! There is a nice snowy gif for you all to stare at in anticipation of the blizzard that is approaching the northeast. I just got done saying I am sick of the snow, but I am very jealous of everyone who is getting the blizzard! There is so much hype on the news and with the media about the storm. (PS: Did anyone know the snowstorm is named Nemo? haha!) I wish we would get a little bit so I could have something to look forward to. I am on the western end of PA so it doesn't look like we'll be getting anything. Who knows, though. These systems can always shift. The only blizzard that I ever experienced was the one of 1993 and I was only a toddler then. If you're in the path of the blizzard, please be careful! Get all of your grocery shopping done ASAP and stock up on whatever you need. Don't go to work unless you have to if it's supposed to hit on Friday. You think businesses would be smart enough to close than risk their employees' lives!

I seem to be feeling better this morning. I think there is some kind of stomach bug going around because three of us in my house weren't 100% this week. As much as I love December and Christmas, I hate the two/three months afterward. Winter just drags on and I am so tired of all of the gross sicknesses that spread. Flus? Colds? Stomach bugs? No thank you! It does not help that people in my class do not know how to cover their mouths when they sneeze/cough. I caught a cold earlier in the semester because someone sneezed right on me. After that, I started carrying tissues with me and covering my mouth/face when anyone sneezed or coughed near me.

Things have been really boring around here, other than school and work. The weather has been so bad that I haven't been able to go much of anywhere lately. I don't think I have been to the mall since early January. We've just been getting snow, sleet, freezing rain, ice, downpours, etc. The roads haven't been very good for the past month or two. We'll get a nice day here or there but that's it. I am ready for spring!

Valentine's Day is a week from today. Does anyone have any special plans? I don't! It's usually boring unless you have someone to celebrate with, which I don't. My friends and I might make a movie night out of it.

I hope you're all doing well and that your families are good, too. Hopefully no one else has to deal with sickness this winter. I hate reading when anyone has the flu or isn't feeling well because I am so sympathetic!

Have a good day everyone! I will pop back on later

So glad you are feeling better, Jennifer !! I will be working on Valentine's Day just like every day. Take care xo

Stay safe and make sure you have flashlights, batteries and all that good stuff at the ready! Keep us posted on how you are doing!
Thanks! Sandy didn't hit us very badly, so we have stuff that we stocked up on for that. If we don't lose power, it won't be too bad to stay snug indoors and watch the snow. Digging the cars out afterward will be another story!

I really want this career position. It would be great to (finally) have some security. I'd appreciate some assistance from you all, too. Thanks!

More importantly, I need your support for something else, too. My grandmother is having quite the battle right now. She's 83, but her health has been deteriorating over the past five or six years. She used to be quite healthy until my grandfather past away. Anyway, she has been in the hospital since Saturday morning and they don't quite know what is wrong. They've run tests but the doctors are baffled. With that said, I would appreciate your help and assistance on this matter, too. My grandmother has always been there for me and it is tough for me not to be around her during this tough time. Thank you!

Enjoy your Thursday, everyone. After today, there is only one more work day until the weekend!
I will definitely pray for your dear grandma....xo

Some of the school systems in Massachusetts, including Boston public schools, have already cancelled classes for tomorrow. And Mr.'s office has told everybody not to come in, which is a BIG relief to me. I'm planning to work from home. Some areas are now being told to expect 30+ inches. I hope we don't lose our power ... they'll have a tough time getting around to fix outages.

So glad you are both going to be home !!!! Thank Goodness !! xo I hope you both stay safe xo
