Welp, the snow finally came starting late last night and it stayed, and stayed, and stayed. It's still snowing a little. I cleaned the back steps off 5 times today. At times it snowed really hard - great big clumps of snow and at others it just ... Read more

I got up really early this morning and got ready so I could be out the door and beat the blue-haired old ladies before they had the parking lot at Aldis filled with their Caddies. I left even before my son got up, right after I fixed breakfast. ... Read more

Today was sunny and above freezing again so it didn't feel too bad outside but it was a muddy, mucky, gloppy, sloppy, slippy, slidey mess outside so not too much fun doing chores or trying to walk. I guess it would be good if you wanted to mud w... Read more
