For some reason when I watch them I think of Valerie.

I'm very jealous of you folks in New England. I wish we could have another storm like the blizzard of 1993 when we got 3 feet of snow. My aunt & uncle, who lived way out of town, were without power for 4 weeks. Since we have a well, we lose water when power is out. We usually fill one of the bath tubs up with water when a storm is on the way.

Stay safe everyone. Hope those in the storm are able to stay home and enjoy it.

Have a blessed day.

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be a warm day here with a high around 50. The bad thing is that it's going to start storming here in a bit so I can't really get out and enjoy it. I get to play accountant today. I have my mom's, Sister's, and Aunt's taxes to do. Fun Times. I actually don't mind it. I took 3 years of accounting in high school and that was my original plan in life. Then I decided that I could never stand a job that required me to sit behind a desk all day long. So I went the mechanic route. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

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
