Don't worry they will get it right when they go outside and measure it with a ruler or yardstick.

Just like I told 'Dawg, make sure you have lots of snacks for waiting in line at the DMV.

I listened to Christmas music on the way to work today. I need to decorate the house for Easter, but I feel like I can't even tread water with the housework at this point. I'll try not to stress about it & just do what I feel like doing. We are clean, fed, & clothed. Don't need much more than that.
I know what you mean by the treading water, I finally got the rest of my Christmas decorations down a few weeks ago. Easter is like the only major holiday we don't decorate for, we do decorate eggs, but that is about all.

We had got JP a Tabeo (a tablet for kids)for Christmas, it was a piece of um...ahh... junk. We took it back after it died after not even a month of use, we got our money back and upgraded him to a Kindle Fire for only $10 more dollars than what we paid for the Tabeo. He LOVES it he reads on it constantly, loves the apps, and it has great parental controls, it also made me really want a tablet that I just got for myself.
If you ever get to Enfield, CT there is a bookstore in the mall called Bookmark It! (haha get it) All the books in the store are $3 or 2 for $5. The books are new with like a tear or a folded cover, or used gently. I just bought the book Secretariat there.

does your Mom still have to go to work when it's that bad? heck, around here, if we get 1/8" of freezing rain we shut down. lack of experience in those driving conditions along w/ not having the right equipment to clean/scrape it off the roads. of course why go to the expense w/ the road crews when wwe only get it 1x every 2 or 3 years. hope you guys stay safe & warm Made!

sounds like you have a very busy day ahead of you. the chicken cacciatore sounds yummy! not sure what to call it, but I'm making chicken breasts, celery, mushrooms, red potatoes, & carrots baked in italian dressing. good luck @ the DMV, I hate having to go there.

We may get 6 to 10 inches out of this on Thursday. We've already had our quota ...
stay safe & warm Merrycarey! you are 1 of my favorite peeps girly!

Yesterday was about 70 outside, so I had spring fever pretty bad. On top of this I've been working out every morning and that always gives me energy. Makes it hard to sit at a desk!

Anyway, enough griping. The sun is out and God is good. So, I hope you all enjoy your day!
working out, spring fever, 70 degree weather, WOW! sounds like your full of excitement w/ no way to vent it. after all, work doesn't count, does it?lol I hope you have a great day Ryan & God bless you!

There was a bad accident on the interstate about 20 miles out from us, a semi went off the road =[ That part of the interstate is completely shut down. They're still trying to get to the driver, scary stuff. Hope he's ok..

I sure hope you get your blizzard, my friend!!
I hope the driver is okay, also.

Good Tuesday morning everyone. Looking to forward to the coming snow storm. We are forecast to get 6-9 inches but I am hoping for 2 feet. Snow forecast are difficult in the NC mountains, because of elevations one area can get lots of snow while just a couple of miles away they get very little. When we were looking for a home, I tried to find one that got the most snow. We live on the northwest slope of Stecoah mountain and usually get more snow than most of the surrounding county. We get very little direct sun, only a couple of hours a day this time of the year, so once it snows it stays a while.

We will have to park at the bottom of the mountain and walk up. Like I've said before, I love it but the wife doesn't. Also, there are no snow plows outside the city so we get to enjoy it longer.

I guess you can tell I'm a little excited for the storm. Looking forward to more time of sitting by the fireplace and eating snow cream. We will probably lose power but that is fine too. We will fill one of the bath tubs up with water tonight to use in the toilet, (no power means no well water).

Have a blessed, safe day everyone.
