Evening. Missed The Good Wife again.

But I did get lots done today, even made some waffle sticks for the freezer, thinking the kids had more state testing this week...turns out math tests aren't until next week. Oh well, at least breakfast is ready for the week. Gonna try to put a few cards together during The Mentalist. Thank goodness for coloring ahead of time.

It actually didn't snow today, rained quite a bit instead. Not we're supposed to get some snow later tomorrow but 2-3" Tues nite to Wed. Did I mention I'm done shoveling for the year?!

Our long-range forecast here isn't as high as I thought it would be, but still - all our snow is gone.
But I've certainly been there - when winter lasts forever and it seems as though the snow will NEVER go.
Where Lilbro2's family is living, they've had snow since mid-Nov. and it isn't showing much sign of leaving yet.

The rain today did take care of a bunch of it. And supposedly 60s by next weekend, but I'll believe it when I see it.

They're saying don't even plan on planting by Mother's Day weekend unless we get lots of warm day to start thawing out the soil.

morning- did not get hardly any sleep last night- tossed and turned pretty much all night long. I only had an hour nap yesterday and it was right around noon- which I usually take a 2 hour one and that doesn't usually bother me. Not sure what the deal was last night

Morning. Waiting for the kids to wake up. Now the predicted snow for tonight is 3-8", depending how the wind blows the band. ACKKKKK Last week was 2-4" was predicted and we got 7+" so wondering how this will really turn out.

Morning. I didn't sleep real well either last night - must be something in the air. One of those mornings where you drag yourself out of bed and wish you could just crawl right back in. Am currently pouring tea down my gullet in an effort to get some caffeine into my system. I had been thinking of going shopping this afternoon after work, but I think I will be just running up to the store for the one essential item and then coming home.

Tried to shop for jeans today. It was a total nightmare. Need to lose a few pounds for anything to fit like I want it to.
I so feel your pain here!
I will say that getting into designer jeans which means paying more made a huge difference for me in how they look on and fit.

Afternoon. Home from work already. Eerie feeling here waiting for the storm to arrive. And it's a parent watch night at dance class tonight...at least that means no running back and forth.

FTR: If you're going to mess up, repeatedly, on a bunch of cards, make sure you use metallic paper. It's so easy to take off the layer and rub off the tape and try again.

not at all. It's true. If you're so stupid that you can't make your card right, just make sure you use the metallic so at least you didn't waste all that paper.

Ugh. I just paid $45 for shoes at wally world. The same pair in the us? $20. So annoying.

ETA: Just cause I am sure everyone is dying to know, these are the shoes in question.

I keep reading about how expensive it is for US companies to do business in Canada. Why is that? I still haven't understood it yet.

Honestly, I don't understand it either. Obviously, there are some things that will have import duties, and that would make prices higher on those items. But with NAFTA, there are an awful lot of things that DON'T fall into that category. And when our dollar was a lot lower, that made a difference too - but these days it is a near par (or over even) as makes no difference.
I'm sure there probably is some type of difference in how businesses pay taxes, but this country WANTS business to be doing business here, so I can't imagine that the taxes are so outrageous that companies can't afford to work here. I don't really know enough on the topic to give any kind of info here - other than common sense would dictate that businesses out to make a profit would not operate in a country where the taxes were so high it was not profitable for them.
It is a question a LOT of people are asking - so many in fact, that the major investigative journalism show on our national broadcaster took this on as a theme for an episode this season. The conclusion? Nobody could really give them an answer.
Not sure if this will be geoblocked or not, but here is a link to the episode in question: Price Tag Confidential - Marketplace

And I think that most of us would not question it/make an uproar about it if it was a small difference. If the shoes were $20 in US, and then $25 or so here. But a 225% markup is a little outrageous.

It shouldn't take you to pages of comments - should take you to a video.
They talk about us/canada pricing at the very beginning, and then the final segment.
