Default You go girl

Get that overgrown rat! I heard he was making holes all over the ground so it's a good thing to get rid of him!

Snow, snow go away. Don't come back another day. I just want to sit and play.

I think Cherie's admission of guilt re causing snow should get the fat rat off the hook! I think Gloria's on their side too about grinding him up. I do believe Jeaneen and Gloria are probably nice, but......

I heard Peta was up there demonstrating against the abuse the rat was living through. Maybe Jane doesn't have to off him. They will take care of it.

to hell with it, with the way my luck is I will end up having to stay here anyway.

Amanda, I'll take the kitten if that happens.

I hate this damn state. I can't even joke about it any more. this will fully and completely screw up any chance in hell I have of being able to go to Okinawa with John.
DM, I'm so sorry you are going thru all of this. Hopefully everything will work out for you guys.

Mack~ "But Mommy, the necklaces I got at the birthday party are broken."
Me~ "Are you talking about your Birthday tiara? Mommy fixed that."
Mack~ "No, my necklaces from the birthday party."
Me~ "What party?"
Mack~"Your FRIENDS Birthday. The necklaces they gave me at the party. Can we go to your friends Birthday again?"

So I guess that means that the Birthday trio (Amanda, Tracy, Michelle) need to hurry up and have another Birthday soon
Glad they are the only ones gonna get older fast!! LOL Cute kid Kimme!!

Dawnmarie...............take a deep breath and then tell us how you really feel about our lovely state. Cindy, loving the new avatar.......is that yours? I guess with that puppy, you don't care about the overgrown rat and the snow stuff! Me, I have a little Honda....low, reliable and very frightening in the snow. Ask the ladies about our trip home from the swap. If you were all in my car, you would personally choke the fat rat.

Oh yeah, and have a great day!
It's DH's new baby. Making this CJ #3. We'll need a used car lot sign soon or one that says Sanford & Sons with the vehicles in the yard. LOL

For you snow lovers out there..haha

A Snow Journal


December 8 6:00 Pm
It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I took our cocktails and sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses print. So romantic we felt like newlyweds again. I love snow!
December 9
We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more lovely place in
the whole world? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had!
Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a
boy again. I did both our driveway and the sidewalks.
This afternoon the snowplow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life!

December 12
The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a
disappointment! My neighbor tells me not to worry-
we'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much snow by the end of winter, that I'll never want to see snow again. I don't think that's possible. Bob is such a nice man, I'm glad he's our neighbor.
December 14
Snow, lovely snow! 8 inches last night. The
temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life!

The snowplow came back this afternoon and buried everything again. I didn't realize I would have to do quite this much shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in shape this way. I wish
I wouldn't huff and puff so.
December 15
20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4x4
Blazer. Bought snow tires for the wife's car and 2
extra shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants
a wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that's silly. We aren't in Alaska, after all.

December 16
Ice storm this morning. Fell on my *** on the ice in
the driveway putting down salt. Hurt like hell. The
wife laughed for an hour, which I think was very
cruel.
December 17
It is still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere. Electricity was off for 5 hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but stare at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I should've bought a wood stove, but won't admit it to her. God I hate it when she's right. I can't believe I'm freezing to death in my own livingroom!

December 20
Electricity is back on, but had another 14 inches of
the damn stuff last night. More shoveling! Took all
day. The damn snowplow came by twice.
Tried to find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they're too busy playing hockey. I think they're
lying. Called the only hardware store around to see about buying a snow blower and they're out. Might have another shipment in March. I think they're lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it done and bill me. I think he's lying.
December 22
Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white **** fell today, and it's so cold, it probably won't melt till August. Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to ****. By the time I got undressed, ****ed and dressed again. I was too tired to shovel. Tried to hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter, but he says he's too busy. I think the ******* is lying.
December 23
Only 2 inches of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she, nuts?!!
Why didn't she tell me to do that a month ago? She
says she did but I think she's lying.

December 24
6 inches - Snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch the son of a ***** who drives that snow plow, I'll drag him through the snow by his balls and beat him to death with my broken shovel. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at a 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I've just been!
Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas
carols with her and open our presents, but I was too busy watching for the damn snowplow.
December 25
Merry f---ing Christmas! 20 more inches of the damn slop tonight - Snowed in! The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. God, I hate
the snow!
Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she's a fricking idiot. If I have to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" one more time, I'm going to stuff her into the microwave.
December 26
Still snowed in. Why the hell did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She's really getting on my nerves.
December 27
Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze;
plumber came after 14 hours of waiting for him, he
only charged me $1,400 to replace all my pipes.
December 28
Warmed up to above -20. Still snowed in. The ***** is driving me crazy!!!

December 29
10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That's the silliest thing I ever
heard. How dumb does he think I am?

December 30
Roof caved in. I beat up the snow plow driver, and now he is suing me for a million dollars, not only for the beating I gave him, but also for trying to shove the broken snow shovel up his ***. The wife went home to her mother. Nine more inches predicted.
December 31
I set fire to what's left of the house. No more
shoveling.

January 8
Feels so good. I just love those little white pills
they keep giving me. Why am I tied to the bed?

Cindy, my daughter has always told my dh that she's gonna make up a sign for our yard that says "Dean's Used Cars" for all the vehicles we have! I'm glad to know it's not just my hubby!

lying. Called the only hardware store around to see about buying a snow blower and they're out. Might have another shipment in March. I think they're lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it done and bill me. I think he's lying.
December 22
Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white **** fell today, and it's so cold, it probably won't melt till August. Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to ****. By the time I got undressed, ****ed and dressed again. I was too tired to shovel. Tried to hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter, but he says he's too busy. I think the ******* is lying.
December 23
Only 2 inches of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she, nuts?!!
Why didn't she tell me to do that a month ago? She
says she did but I think she's lying.

December 24
6 inches - Snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch the son of a ***** who drives that snow plow, I'll drag him through the snow by his balls and beat him to death with my broken shovel. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at a 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I've just been!
Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas
carols with her and open our presents, but I was too busy watching for the damn snowplow.
December 25
Merry f---ing Christmas! 20 more inches of the damn slop tonight - Snowed in! The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. God, I hate
the snow!
Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she's a fricking idiot. If I have to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" one more time, I'm going to stuff her into the microwave.
December 26
Still snowed in. Why the hell did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She's really getting on my nerves.
December 27
Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze;
plumber came after 14 hours of waiting for him, he
only charged me $1,400 to replace all my pipes.
December 28
Warmed up to above -20. Still snowed in. The ***** is driving me crazy!!!

December 29
10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That's the silliest thing I ever
heard. How dumb does he think I am?

December 30
Roof caved in. I beat up the snow plow driver, and now he is suing me for a million dollars, not only for the beating I gave him, but also for trying to shove the broken snow shovel up his ***. The wife went home to her mother. Nine more inches predicted.
December 31
I set fire to what's left of the house. No more
shoveling.

January 8
Feels so good. I just love those little white pills
they keep giving me. Why am I tied to the bed?
LOL, Kimme!!! That might just be us by spring if this keeps up!

Tracy & Cherie, thank you so much for sending me a sample of your cards from last Saturday's SBS since I was unable to attend! They are both gorgeous! I sure wasn't expecting that so it was a nice surprise!

Well, I gotta admit the snow sculpture is cute, in a sick kinda way. But then again, we are all sickos. Thats why I like you.
Snow poem is sooooo true isnt it? MY best friend who moved to Fla about 5 yrs ago just said in an email that she would be nostalgic for a good snow storm except she was at her daughters in Wisc at Christmas and had a big snow "experience" and brought back memories.
Be safe everyone.

Good morning! If anyone is interested in checking out the SnowArt website with past creations here's the link: http://snowart.org/ It's amazing what they can do with snow and some dye!

So, I hope everyone is ready for the big snowstorm...ready or not, here it comes!! I'm hoping to get a lot of stamping done while we're snowed in!~

Good Morning! I'm also hoping to get some stamping done. If we must be stuck in the house what better than extra stampin time.

Default Woooo ~ Hoooo

U of Maryland closed...........my boss caught me as I was *pulling out of the driveway* to go in! Lucky or what? Oh yeah. Mary, your family has a great sense of humor and I love it. I need to get busy today.............I have a card to design and I am hyperventilating because it is so NOT done! Have a safe day all and stay warm.

Kimme, I may join that man with the little pills. But please, don't let them tie me down, I couldn't stamp then! I LOVED his journal. Why didn't he join me in the hunt for the fat rat???

Nothing here in GB yet! I'm hoping to get lots of stamping in while I'm snowed in too! I took leave today, figured I didn't want to get caught up in a lot of traffic coming home from Lanham this afternoon and end up taking several hours to get home! Getting ready to make a big pot of veggie soup, spruce this house up a bit and then stamp! Any of you that have to go out please be careful, I hope you can just stay inside and safe!

John just called: he is on the road. it's normally a 4 hour drive. if he's lucky he should be here before it starts to really accumulate and the roads( and idiots on them) get too bad.
