Cheryl I hope we get to meet up some day!!!

LJ- Sounds like you had an exciting night of shopping!!

I spent the night getting my hair high-lighted, went a bit darker now that it's winter, and BOY IS IT WINTER!!!! We got about a foot of snow overnight!! Kids were hoping for a snow day and we were quite surprised that we didn't get one!!! Not sure if they will be going out of town for wrestling, they were planning on leaving Friday morning but last night the coach changed it to today at noon to miss the weather, well I don't think it worked!!! Anyway, we'll see if they go at alll!!

Got your PM.

With the blizzard that we're in for over the next 72 hours, all is up in the air.... when / if I confirm the trip to your side of the mitten, I will call you and we'll go from there.

Making a quickie run to work and getting caught up before I dash to the school and do everything today that I wanted to do tomorrow.... the storm has everyone so spooked ( and I chalk that up to admin wanting an extra day off before the holiday LOL ) that even our school district is planning for a closing.

It's gravitating between 5 and 11 degrees today, whcih is warmer than the -2 that i woke up to this morning, and the weather channel folks say we're in for up to 5" tonight and as much as 10" by tomorrow afternoon.

I'm all for a snow day, but not the snow tonight.... Braeden has a speaking part in the holiday concert and he's been practicing sooo hard!!

I hope that I can get the video feature on my camera to work ( spend a fortune on a piece of equipment and I still can't figure out how to use half of what the darn thing is capable of doing.... )... he sounds so cute with his warbly little voice, trying to stumble through "And now here's the Earthtones Choir, singing Feliz Navidad"... I just have to save that!!

Hopefully it gets to happen.

...and now I'm off to make it to the school, to Wal Mart and to the USPS before the snow starts!!

Joy - got your PM....no problemo....

My friend Mel here @ the office (who goes with me on thursday nights sometimes) gave me the most adorable Bucky Badger Purse, SBX GC, and SBX chocolates for christmas. I'll get a picture taken tonight once I get home (hopefully earlier than last night!)

I'm on a last-minute christmas gift hunt for Dad, looking for one of those Wii Fits....(Yea I know good-luck!) Think the UW Digital Outpost might still have em, I'm gonna call @ lunch and see if they have one left, and if they do if they would hold it for me.

Scrappy take care of yourself and annabella....PLEASE!!!!

Gael, why are you letting the Christmas tree attack you??

Surgery sucks, but pain swallows.

I hope everything works out the way you want it to. I'll say a little prayer for you that it does. . .

Over the ground lies a mantle of white
A heaven of diamonds shine down through the night
Two hearts are thrillin’ in spite of the chill in weather
Love knows no season
Love knows no clime
Romance can blossom any old time
Here in the open
We’re walkin’ and hopin’ together

Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin’
In the lane, snow is glistenin’
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walkin’ in a winter wonderland
Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song, as we go along
Walkin’ in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he is Parson Brown
He’ll say, "Are you married?"
We’ll say, "No, man"
But you can do the job while you’re in town
Later on we’ll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid the plans that we made
Walkin’ in a winter wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin’
In the lane, snow is glistenin’
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walkin’ in a winter wonderland
Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song, as we go along
Walkin’ in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he’s a circus clown
We’ll have lots of fun with Mister Snowman
Until the other kiddies knock him down
When it snows ain’t it thrillin’
Though your nose gets a chillin’
We’ll frolic and play the Eskimo way
Walkin’ in a winter wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin’
In the lane, snow is glistenin’
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walkin’ in a winter wonderland
Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song, as we go along
Walkin’ in a winter wonderland

Lisa C and Marci--we need to figure out when we are meeting up. Lisa do you know your travel plans yet?

.
I will be staying at St. Mtn on the 29th and 30th. Leaving on the 31st before the crazies get out on the road. Maybe we can meet and or shop. We are meeting my SIL and her 2 kids and going to some of the holiday festivities at the park. But I should be able to sneak off for some shopping. Is there anything in the area? I did not much crafting way back when I lived there!

Hi Girls,

Haven't posted in a while.

Joy, my local store makes all my goodies too. Too busy for that kind of stuff.

Gael, now who were you really under the tree with. I don't believe you were just watering THE TREE. wink, wink

Sandye, where are you. I miss talking to you. Oh, that is right I am the one who hasn't been on here much. Just going thru life one step at a time.

I am going to FL for two weeks starting next Tuesday morning so I probably won't be on much during that time unless I can slip into a place that has free internet access.

Everyone have a great, safe, gain free holiday. May you get every thing you asked for. Don't do any thing I wouldn't do at all those office holiday parties. My company party is tomorrow at 12 noon. 23 guys and me. I am the only female that works at my company. I have worked there for 13 years and only 2 of the 13 years I have had a female co-worker. That is o.k. because I like being the only female.

Bonnie

Before I rant, I have to pause as a proud momma.

I didn't get to tinker with my vid feature, but the family I ended up sharing seats with from the boys class brought their video camera and will make a copy for me.

Braeden was, hands down, the best performer in the entire kindergarten group of forty yahoos.

He did his line perfectly, sang every song, performed the choreography as close to flawlessly as a five year old can muster and behvaed impeccably.
I don't know who was beaming more after all the compliments he received - him, or I.

Nah, it was definitely me. He's a pretty humble kid.

Spud sings very well, and is incredibly coordinated ( no clue where he gets that from! I'm a dancer gone fat and lazy, but trip over my own feet any other time, and Ward's as Drunken White Guy as they come ). He'll be a smash in the theatre department when he gets older.

Iain did better than expected. We were just SO grateful that he wasn't in his usual stance - sort of rocking back and forth, left hand index finger crammed up his nose.

We made it through last night without any snow, and this morning ( and I went to bed at 12:00, mind you, so we are talking under five hours ) it looks like Old Man Winter took a gigantic dump everywhere.

And just as I figured would happen, because it's the last day before break, and the whole darn staff was talking about it yesterday, as if the Super had already signalled a go ( probably because he wanted to get back to Philly on time ), we have a snow day.

Looking at the list, we haven't had that many schools close at once yet this season, and we've had three days that were FAR worse than this.

Seems that quite a few districts hopped on this extra day off gig.

Now I am REALLY glad that I brought everything to the school yesterday!

..and now, because I can, I'm headed to the couch with a disc of Hetty Wainthropp, to doze off and do nothing til about 10:00.

Yay snow day!!!

The radio show was cancelled due to snow, she brought the laptop w/her, and the GinaK Cuppa Joe set w/her to decorate the card! WOOHOO progress!!!!

I'm telling ya' Wisteria Lane doesn't have as much nearly as much drama as this thread!!!

Okay, now I see why we have no school.

I officially hate the plow truck guy.
Spent an hour digging out my car to move my trash dumpster, and then as I'm thinking "wow! I'm making headway! I didn't shovel a foot of snow for nothin'" the bleeping snow plow drives through, close to my curb, and viola`! I have a waist deep ( and no, I am NOT kidding. It's Eskimo love out there! ) snow to haul out just to pull out of my driveway.

As I looked at that, I had a series of thoughts.

1. SH*T!!!

2. I'm really glad that I picked up some staple groceries last night.

3. SH*T!!! SH*T!! SH*T!!! I have to dig this f***ing thing out AGAIN!!

4. Why don't we own a snow blower?

5. Oh wait, it's because my husband is a retard. Too bad he's not the one that does the shoveling.

6. Bludgeoning him to death with that shovel sounds like a really, really good idea.

7. Temporary insanity isn't a legal plea in Michigan... but if I have to dig out this damned driveway too many more times today, that insanity won't be temporary.

8. Dude! I could totally just throw his bloody carcaass into that snowdrift and n oone would find him for like a month! That'd serve his a** right for not buying me a snow blower!

I'm going to eat some toast, throw back a 32 oz coffee loaded with some good Irish whiskey.....

...on second thought... I think I hear my neighbor firing up his snow blower!! Thank you God in Heaven.. there is a Santa Claus!!

ROTFLMAO! NO KIDDING! The same thing happens here, dad gets' plowed out and the plows come and put another 3 ft back in..... He's just leaving now to go to school to remove more snow, figure he better get out of the driveway before the plows come through again.

Good Morning all my Happy Snowed-In Friends....

I have been soooooo MIA and I have soooooooo MISSED you all! But my major big craft fair / vendor show was awesomely amazing and at $462.00 dollars richer... it was well worth the 12 hours that I spent on my feet. And that's not counting any of the prep time.

We are expecting 8-14 inches of new snow beginning today around noon, so I know it is a stay-home, stamping, indoor movie night for me. I think we must getting everyone's left overs!

I will be around most of the day... Since, we have our new Dinning room set and we are making way for the new grand piano, we have had to move my office around, so I am trying to put that all back together today.

BBL....

First day of vacation---Awake AND talking to McFadden BEFORE the frigging alarm goes off at 5:28 am.....WHAT"S up w/that????

Dishes washed, breakfast made, showered, dressed, list made, coupons in hand, McFadden taken next door and on the road by 8:15 am to go "Xmas" shoppping--HL, REI, WalMart and Pet Pleasers Bakery- home by 12:30 pm. I am finished w/Christmas shopping, well I will be after I order "Harvey" from Amazon. Then clean up the house, especially the craft room. If I get it done now, I won't feel guilty about being lazy. I also want to go to the library so I can read some books over vacation. Ohhh I may do that after ordering from Amazon...

Toodles...

No snow blowing by the neighbor for me. *pout*

It was the guy across the road and he's not nice. Three of us on my side of the street shovel / salt / plow for each other ( since we're all one strip ), but the other side isn't friendly to one another.

The college campuses have closed, all of the County offices, City offices and charter twonship / neighboring village offices have closed in the last twenty minutes... all but the emergency crew fixing a blown system and my DH's company have left their job site, including the lead contractors...

...and Chris is STILL at work. If the snow didn't let up an hour ago, they would've kept the stretch of highway closed that he needs to drive to get home. It was shut for two hours but is reopened now.

The company owner says they can't leave.
The men had to call the union and scream about hazardous working conditions... the owner says that until the union Business Manager or President says that he has to send the men home, they are staying at work and continuing to work.

Thankfully, I think that call came through since lunchtime, because when I called Chris ( about 10 min. ago ) to tell him about the hwy reopening, he said that they are cleaning up and he'll call when he's officially leaving the campus.
