Glad you are home safe & sound!!

Thanks for thinking of us. We got 3 inches overnight, and are expecting @ 4 more throughout the day. The ice never completely melted underneath the snow from last time, so that's what they're saying to look out for.

Have a great day, friend!! Hope you can go back to sleep =]

Good morning everyone!

It is a mild day in Ottawa. Temperatures are about -5/-8c (23/18f). The 14 day forecast has us hovering around or above the freezing mark, too. Not bad. The best part? There is no snow in the forecast for today. Finally, after shoveling at least 25 CMs of snow for three weeks in a row, I can rest while watching the rink tonight. Perhaps, even skate. My doctor informed me that skating might be helpful to my knee.

My appointment last night went well. He informed me that my next appointment should not be for another three or four weeks. I believe that will make it my final checkup. As long as I do not have any setbacks, I will be extremely happy to finally get back on the field. I think an April return is quite realistic.

So... the more I think about the more I want to go. I don't think I can wait another week to visit Tinseltown. I've done the google maps and it's also only a 10-15 minute walk from my work. Therefore, I have made the decision to visit today at lunch! I have my phone with me, so I will take some pictures and post them on the weekend. This should be a magical experience. A great way to celebrate Friday. But, most of all, a great way to celebrate the eve of 10 months until Christmas Day!

Have a great Friday, everyone! The weekend is nearly upon us. Let's enjoy the final weekend of February!

When I sent the link, you were in the 1-foot range---they kept changing the forecast during the day!

Three of my favorite comedians are in your sig pic: Buster, Stan and Ollie! I'm too much of a film geek. I can tell you which movies the stills are from.

I saved a PDF of this page for future reference. At the end of a cold, I can never get rid of the cough and tickle, especially when I'm trying to sleep. This may be the answer. Thanks!

Thank you for sharing this!! I'll have to pass it on to my MIL, she swears by apple cider vinegar and now she can make her own homeopathic cold medicine with it as well. Great & beneficial recipe!

Oh, that sounds so good (except you can have my banana cake---bananas are ick to me). I didn't get a proper dinner last night. I was at the office until past 7:30, and I got so hungry I had a snack from the vending machine. When I got home I had a cup of cocoa and went right to bed. Your soup and sandwich would have been perfect!

Today looks like it may be crazy. There's a major new campaign launching, in addition to work for other clients.

Stay safe, those who have the icy roads.

We're expecting 4 to 8 inches of snow Saturday night into Sunday. Third weekend in a row we've had a snowstorm.

Trying to get psyched up for a busy day at work, but I'm so-o-o-o low on energy.
