It's cheaper to run the dryer. Today I think is going to be a Christmas movie kind of day. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
cold here too, -11c (12f) but feels like -21c (-5f) brrrrrrrrrr It is supposed to get down to -25c (-13f) by Wednesday. This was done to insure the snow stayed around for longer than a day!

LOL, I do the same with the laundry! We do not send all that warm air outside but vent it inside so that we get the heat and humidity in here. It is great, on laundry days we hardly turn up the furnace.

I can't wait to see pictures!!!


Caninemom,

As Snow-in-Texas mentioned about the Ravens winning, we sure enjoyed watching that game together! As most of you know, I'm a die hard Cowboys fan and have been one since I was 5 years old but it was a blast to help SIT cheer on his favorite team since the Cowboys are out of it. I cannot wait for the Super Bowl! I watch it every year but it's been so long since I had a team to cheer on (C'MON COWBOYS-get busy and give us another Super Bowl!!!!!) I guess I will be wearing some purple this year!

I told him after this is all over I am back to the Cowboys full time!

I have the whole week off from babysitting and my job. I plan to write a list of things to get done around the house. If I don't write it down I tend to blow off things. If I write it down and check it off as I go it's just a little more motivating. I have some organizing to tackle this week so I am going to GET IT DONE! Last time I had off a week I ended up not feeling well and not much got done.

I might work on some video editing as well to make that customized video for my mom and aunt set to music.

I hope you all have the Merriest Day ever!

Remember, Monday is a good day!!! Start to a beautiful week. Make it the best EVER!!! =)

I suppose I will have to root for the Ravens to win the Super Bowl this year. I am a huge Steelers fan, so this Super Bowl isn't too pretty for me. I would rather see anyone win over the 49ers. They cannot be tying us for #6!

To be honest, I am way more excited that hockey is back. I would be even if my Steelers were still in it. The past couple of years I have really enjoyed hockey. It's such an intense, fast-paced game - so much fun to watch throughout! Our next game is on Wednesday, so I have to wait a couple of days - boo!

I am off from school today so I will be catching up on some school/work stuff!

Now that's a great attitude!!! As my pastor says, "You get to do the laundry, not have to"!

Not always easy to remember that, is it? I have to chant that saying everyday! Anyway, I get to organize my house but it will feel great after I am done!!!

Time to fuel up with some of Binger's special rocket fuel blend of coffee and get going!!! Going to get those tunes blasting loudly as well!!! Dancing and singing while organizing makes it so much easier!

I hope that when I pop in later I will report that I got something done on my list! =)

My apartment isn't set up for a washer and dryer so I have to use portable units. The washer just hooks up to my bathroom faucet and the dryer just sits in my kitchen. The vent hose for the dryer connects to a box that you fill with water to catch any lint that makes it past the lint trap. Like you said it's nice in the winter but not being able to vent it outside in the summer is terrible.

Glad you made it home safely. I feel like a mother hen being worried about you driving in snow!

It was also nice to have a slow night, everything got done. I have tomorrow off and then back on Tuesday and then off again until Saturday.
