Gotta love New England weather.

My bod is sore from snow blowing driveways yesterday. I did Mom's & her neighbors (two elderly ladies). Then I went home in the afternoon and did mine plus my 3 senior neighbors. It was wet from raining part of the day on top of the two inches of snow and would be nothing but a sheet of ice once it froze. I drove Mom to work and worked from her house all day, then picked her up at 7:30 (12 1/2 hour day for her). I'm tired and sore and am working on a big grant proposal due in a couple weeks.

I'm so glad I splurged on a good snow blower a couple weeks ago. I needed something dependable with son being gone. If I had to shovel all that wet shit yesterday I'd be in traction today.

Is it Friday yet?

The bestest thing came in the mail to my Mom & Grandmother yesterday.....a DVD message from Christopher! He looks so bald and so handsome in his fatigues. I can see changes in him already. I'll get the disc from Mom and post it for you all to see.

For the first time in a very, very long time - I don't have to worry. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off me.

I think only you and I (as women) would say "slurge and snow blower (tiller, rake, etc.) " in the same sentence and mean it. Good for you!

You are Ms. Wonderful to help those who can't do something for themself.

You sound so fantastic, girl! You should have a little fun now, treat yourself. And I'm not talking about snowblowing! Enjoy this time.

And then, Lost premiers on the 21st.

Doesn't get much better than that.

Ya, not the same level of importance, but I am on a Lost and all things Lost kick starting yesterday for some reason. :)

I LOVE YOU said...
