Sunday snow storm!

If this was my day off, I would be ecstatic.  But noooooo.  I always have to go or come home from work during a bad storm.  Right now there are about 5 inches piled up out there and its still coming down.  I will be lucky if I get to come home tonight!  I will be lucky if I can go to work!  I will have to put on Travis' boots and shovel a path out to the car and brush it off before I can go anywhere.  Then hope someone else has been out of the park first so I can follow their tire tracks to the road.  Then I have to hope the plow hasn't come by and put a two foot pile of snow at the exit.  When I get to Sarah's grandmother's (if I don't go off the road) I then have to park on the side of the road and make Sarah climb over the snowbank to get to her grandmother's house because her plow person won't have come yet.  Then I have to try to get to work.  Travis will be home all day and probably won't lift a finger to help.  He should at least shovel a spot out for my car but he won't.  Or do such a half ass job it's like he didn't do anything!  He prefers to roll around in the snow like a 5 year old!  I will take the camera with me and try to get some shots today anyhow. 

We had the 4 Springs weekend potluck Christmas lunch yesterday.  I made wings.  They were so good, falling off the bones!  We had a guy there from an agency working.  His name is Michael and he is an Albany guy probably.  He is a huge black man and is almost as wide and he is tall.  A younger guy, hard to tell his age.  He is the nicest guy and so gentle and competent with the residents.  He was not shy about eating yesterday either.  He can tuck that food away!  Well, I better go and give myself a good head start this morning.  I'm sure there will be a lot of call ins at work from people who "can't make it".  I will give it a darn good try to make it and I have a charged up cell phone just in case!  Thanks to Donna for this beautiful tag...

hi mom and brenda!
