Helping Mom This Morning

Friday, February 04, 2011

My mom turned 80 last October and she has some health issues. So, I've been trying to spend more time with her and help her whenever I can. This morning is one of those times. She's having trouble with her car, so I'll take a look at it and go with her to take it to a shop. And I finally talked her into letter me dye her hair instead of spending so much money at a salon. It will be the first time that I've done someone else's hair, but I don't anticipate any problems. I will definitely enjoy the time with her.

Cabin Fever Setting In

Thursday, February 03, 2011

I've been off work for 11 days now. I've been cooped up in the house because of the weather since Tuesday afternoon. I'm starting to show signs of boredom and cabin fever. My motivation seems to want to wane a little. It's still bone-chilling cold outside, but the main roads are clear this morning. I must get outside a little to fight these things off and get back into a more positive mode. One thing about being inside, though, is that I always find something new or that I have forgotten about on the SP website.

    It's sort of a mixed blessing. I hope you were able to get a little fresh air today!

    Keep your spirits up! It's not easy with extreme weather I know, but going out will help.

Snow Day

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

The good news is: Detroit didn't get as much snow as expected. My daughter made it to work safely. I don't have to venture out anywhere today. I get to use the day to accomplish some things around the house.

The bad news us: More snow is expected and what's there is blowing like crazy. It's COLD out there!

Time to get dressed (with a warm sweatshirt on!) and start tackling some of those projects I want to get done~

    Not an extreme amount of snow but dangerous wind chills today. I'm glad that you were able to stay in. I only had to get out enough to walk to a vehicle and then back to the door after work. I have such great co-workers!

Kitchen Sink Dilemma

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

The kitchen sink (the garbage disposal side) has backed up into the dishwasher again. What a mess and what a stink! I've got a great handyman working on it right now. This actually will give me the perfect excuse to deep clean the kitchen after he's done. Check one room off the spring cleaning list!

Getting Ready

Monday, January 31, 2011

The weathermen are predicting 1-4" of snow tonight and another 12 - 15" of snow tomorrow night. So, I'm planning to use today to run all my errands. And I'm planning to do some at-home chores the next couple days. This way, I will be able to use my time wisely and not get too cooped up when I can't get out. Hopefully, the weathermen will be a little off in their predictions.
