Good Morning everyone! WE got about 4-5 inches of snow last night here in upstate NY. I get to try out my snowblower today if I can find the extension cord under the snow! I did not want to try and do it last night in the dark. We are expecting another storm over the weekend which will be even worse! I am not happy about this kind of weather so early. Next comes the bitter cold. I need to get up under the house today and make sure the heat tape is on. Its by the side, but I still need to pull out a piece of the skirting to look. I should bring a marker so I can mark the spot so I don't have to search for it all the time. I am dreading getting power outages. I was thinking about getting an aquarium, but if I do and we loose power all the fish will die. They should make battery operated heaters for those fish tanks!
The party at work was ok. I didn't win anything (again). A couple of my co-workers did however. One of them even won $100 in the flu shot cash drawing! Good for her! I need to go over to the Domestic Violence office today and pick up the kids Empty Stocking gifts. The sponsors for that are usually very generous. I hope Travis gets a gift certificate again so I can buy him a couple more things. They always end up with plenty. I definately need to get another cat litter box when I'm out today. These cats poop like you wouldn't believe. To top it off, some supervisor at work needs to find a home for her cat because she is getting married and her husband doesn't like cats. I love cats and am so tempted.
This would put and end to my cat population if I did. 4 cats is enough, heck 3 is enough, but I love cats! This one is supposed to be very loving and affectionate. I would love to get a puppy, but I really can't leave it home alone all day. Dave is in no shape to be taking care of it with that wound vac on his foot. It is a disgusting thing. I have to take him shopping today and the though of being around that thing makes me shudder! He was imitating it the other night (slurping) and I had to tell him to stop or I wasn't coming back! I can't stand that kind of noise. The machine is quiet but he called attention to it so now I fixate on it. I have sort of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder where I fixate on noises that bother me. If I can't get away from them I just sit there and wait for it again. I get very anxious about it. I love dogs, but the way they clean themselves is one of my problems. Cat's too. They can groom but not right in front of me. OK now I sound like a crazy person.
Sarah is playing her hunting game on the Playstation. Wait till she sees what I got for her for the new X-Box 360! She also likes to make movies on my camera, wait till she sees what Santa is bringing! I always feel like I don't get enough however. She gets tons of gifts at her Grandmother's but is only allowed to use them there. Same for clothes. I still need to go out and get the kids stocking stuffers. I have alot to do before the holidays! I want to go out and get a cookie press and make some spritz cookies and some cookie cutters too. Also I need to get some wings so I can make chicken wings for our X-mas party on 4S tomorrow. I hope I don't get sent to another unit! Well I hope everyone has a nice and warm day!
