Thanks for the tip, I'll be checking, and possibly shopping after work tomorrow night

They have to do it manually, from what I have read is if you post it by the deadline (which you did) it will be included.

And no snow day **** retention to be found! LOL

The lack of snow days.. It's not all like that - just the more densely populated areas.
Living near one of the great lakes ( as I'm sure that Kate & LJ can agree ) has its disadvantages, and one of them is erratic lake effect weather. We're all used to it being screwball and have to roll with it, even though we hate it.

The slightly more rural school districts plan for six or seven snow days a year, but since I am smack dab in the middle of one of the three largest cities in our state, there's no sympathy when it comes to road conditions.

Bear with me... I need to vent where I'll get some sympathy! LOL

It's barely 6:30 here, and I'm already wishing the day was over.

Had to get up at 4:30 today - YUCK.

Car #2 wouldn't start yesterday. I had to call Ward home from work to rescue us.

My husband can build incredible things out of wood or metal, is capable of fixing anything that breaks inside the house that would otherwise require a service man ( except my appliances; I keep warranties on those. Less hassle ), and is a fabulous cook, but when it comes to cars, he'd make that Corky kid from 'Life Goes On' look like Von Dutch.

Ladies, I gotta tell ya, when he started pulling apart the WORKING car to get at the battery, to pull it and check the battery on the other car..... I went white as a sheet, and it took every ounce of patience in me to not club him over the head with a pipe wrench just to prevent him from making the situation worse.

After using my best Mom's Trying to not Explode voice and pointing out that we had access to one of those nifty battery tester / jumper units, if he'd just drive over and get it a mere four minutes away, he somehow managed to get the coolant tank he'd extracted back into its proper position ( I hope! ) and an hour later, determined that the battery was fine ( which is what I told him in the first place ).

I went back to work for our open house last night, and when I got home, he'd made dinner, but apparently managed to peruse some net porn and take a really long nap when he should've been using our roadside assistance and expediting the getting the good car ( Murphy's Law at its finest. It couldn't be the POS that needed work... ) back to its former operable condition.

However, by the time I got home from work last night, I had so much wine in me that I almost didn't care about the broken car.

A good friend of mine combined his passion for politics and his love of wine into a small but growing business ( www.politicalwinery.com for those who can apprecaite the humor of the meshing ), and was kind enough to donate two cases for our event.

I threw back quite a bit of the Jack Blue, and before the night was over, grew a pair big enough that allowed me to walk over to our uptight Chief of Police ( who HATES my program with a passion and would nix the budget if he could ) as he was saying his farewells, give him a big ol' hug, and thank him for taking time out of his evening to come out and celebrate with us.

Thankfully my balance and poise improve with consumption ( figure that one out! ), and I was only five or six glasses in at that point, so those in eyeshot watched a very confident and graceful crazy woman saunter over, versus a stumbling drunk on suicide mission.

Work should be interesting today.

At least I'll have one bright spot in my craptacular day.

I hope that you all have a better Friday than mine is bound to go... and for now I'm off to check my messages and start prodding my over tired and uber cranky kids into getting ready for school.

Wish I could have been there to see this! I am sure your coworkers are very proud/impressed and will make your day wonderful!

Hello everyone! How is everyone doing today. I am trying to write out my Christmas cards today and waiting for one of my customers to come by and do a make up Stamp Camp. For some reason everytime I sit down to do my Christmas cards I seems to get distracted. I guess I better go and actually start working on them. I will chat with you all later.

Hey Bucky!

That's a beautiful card and a beautiful memory!

Lance will probably divorce me for saying this, but he loves "The Sound of Music," and always gets weepy-eyed when the Baron sings Edelweiss. . .

MWAH!

That's one of the many reasons that I worship the ground you walk on. . .

It's barely 6:30 here, and I'm already wishing the day was over.

Had to get up at 4:30 today - YUCK.

Car #2 wouldn't start yesterday. I had to call Ward home from work to rescue us.

My husband can build incredible things out of wood or metal, is capable of fixing anything that breaks inside the house that would otherwise require a service man ( except my appliances; I keep warranties on those. Less hassle ), and is a fabulous cook, but when it comes to cars, he'd make that Corky kid from 'Life Goes On' look like Von Dutch.

Ladies, I gotta tell ya, when he started pulling apart the WORKING car to get at the battery, to pull it and check the battery on the other car..... I went white as a sheet, and it took every ounce of patience in me to not club him over the head with a pipe wrench just to prevent him from making the situation worse.

After using my best Mom's Trying to not Explode voice and pointing out that we had access to one of those nifty battery tester / jumper units, if he'd just drive over and get it a mere four minutes away, he somehow managed to get the coolant tank he'd extracted back into its proper position ( I hope! ) and an hour later, determined that the battery was fine ( which is what I told him in the first place ).

I went back to work for our open house last night, and when I got home, he'd made dinner, but apparently managed to peruse some net porn and take a really long nap when he should've been using our roadside assistance and expediting the getting the good car ( Murphy's Law at its finest. It couldn't be the POS that needed work... ) back to its former operable condition.

However, by the time I got home from work last night, I had so much wine in me that I almost didn't care about the broken car.

A good friend of mine combined his passion for politics and his love of wine into a small but growing business ( www.politicalwinery.com for those who can apprecaite the humor of the meshing ), and was kind enough to donate two cases for our event.

I threw back quite a bit of the Jack Blue, and before the night was over, grew a pair big enough that allowed me to walk over to our uptight Chief of Police ( who HATES my program with a passion and would nix the budget if he could ) as he was saying his farewells, give him a big ol' hug, and thank him for taking time out of his evening to come out and celebrate with us.

Thankfully my balance and poise improve with consumption ( figure that one out! ), and I was only five or six glasses in at that point, so those in eyeshot watched a very confident and graceful crazy woman saunter over, versus a stumbling drunk on suicide mission.

Work should be interesting today.

At least I'll have one bright spot in my craptacular day.

I hope that you all have a better Friday than mine is bound to go... and for now I'm off to check my messages and start prodding my over tired and uber cranky kids into getting ready for school.
ROTFLMAO. . .as usual with your posts. . .

Hey Bucky, Jackie, & Yoo-Rah!

Still hoping and praying that y'all get better?

Scrappy, I'm hoping that you & Baby Bella are both over your sickies!

MWAH!

MWAH!
Now it's MY turn to LMAO!!!!

And I thought that Ward's stiffy over Mary Poppins ( not Julie Andrews, just Mary Poppins ) was hilarious....

Where's my pity party, darn it!!

...and for added fun, when Ward phoned at lunch and I told him that I'd taken the car in, he said "yeah, I talked to Craig and he said that...." and went on about how we didn't need to take it in.

My response : "dude! You took off the coolant tank to get at the battery because you overlooked a liftable panel! And you chose a nap and some spank over calling the mechanic yesterday. So I handled it."

Score one for team estrogen.

I was so pleased that I bought a Diet Pepsi to reward myself for good behavior.
