I hope Jesse Jackson Jr's prison sentence is similar to that of someone who embezzled a similar amount from their workplace.(meaning, I hope he didn't get a break)

Good piece on NPR yesterday on the gerry mandering of those Ilinois districts and how unnecessary it was for him to even do fundraising -- since he was a shoe-in.

Tomorrow: coffee/hot chocolate with my mommy friends in the afternoon while my husband takes his father to the doctor for the third of five rounds of treatment for his blood disorder that has been turning his life upside down (he collapsed in the dr's office on Tuesday and was rushed back to the ER).

Then we are going to see Ron White as an early birthday present to me.

Saturday: Polar Bear Plunge!

Sunday: Ry and his friends are going to take a limo to the movie theater for a birthday party. Then we're going to celebrate my bday with my in-laws, if my FIL is feeling up to it.

I made it to the gym! Bad driving conditions this morning. Four days in a row. I haven't done THAT in 12-13 years.

If you clean the garage can you avoid replacing the car canopy or whatever blew away last week?

Same odorific dude on the L this morning. He's taking up 4 seats and snoring. I've got to stop getting on this car...

Weekend plans:

Tonight: no daddy so probably playing in the snow and delivery.

Sat: Daddy is taking the girls to a golf show so I get the morning to myself! Will probably end up doing laundry...

Sun: Sledding!

Our big 'winter storm' was anticlimactic. I can still see blades of grass sticking up through the snow. On the plus side, this place is dead today. Close parking. And, it's not really very cold, so scraping my car didn't take long, either.

Our original foot of snow (predicted from last weekend) is going to be less. THey said we'd get 3-4 inches, but it's going to be 6 I think by the end of the day. But it's really light and fluffy.

It's gorgeous out.

It wasn't that bad at all, I agree. Where I live, though, we did get about 4-5 inches. I don't call that a bad snowstorm. I call that winter.

I agree and it's about time!

Although if I had parked in a different spot by the lake, I would have considered it a bad snow storm. The wind blew all the snow off and away from our car but piled it up behind some others down the street. I saw many drifts that were higher than the trunks as I drove away, thanking my lucky stars.

When I parked over by my MIL's, the cars were all covered in snow and mine was completely clear. Very obvious that I didn't park there overnight!
