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.

Where do you do that in B/N? Are you coming up to the city?

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!

Hell, a lot of what I learned as history in school turned out to be fiction. The winners write the books. Much has been disproved through science since some of those were written.
Yes, but just because it's not accurate in all regards doesn't necessarily mean that Mary, Joseph, or what have you are fiction

Miscellaneous:

The Case for Zero Tolerance of Modern School Administrators:
A 13-year-old boy who wore a regular tie instead of a clip-on tie to school in Brightingslea, England, was placed in isolation for a day because he was in violation of the school's zero-tolerance health and safety policies.

News Item: "Police follow footprints through wet grass to stolen grill, patio furniture."
The arrested man is now seeking dew process.

News Headline: "In New Mexico, crooks are now stealing toilets."
Investigators say they have nothing to go on.

News Headline: "Physicists think alternative universe 'vacuum bubble' may destroy existence."
News Headline: "Kim Kardashian: If I was a man I'd want to have sex with myself."
Admit it. Aren't there moments when you root for the bubble?

We Have Seen the Present, and It Does Not Work:
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has sued a North Carolina firm that requires applicants for some jobs to be able to lift 75 pounds because the requirement discriminates against those who can't lift 75 pounds.

News Headline: "House Speaker Boehner says 'it's time to act' on federal deficit."
News Headline: "U.S. deficit shrinking at fastest pace since WWII."
Boehner knows that.
As he said, he was only acting.

QT Trickle-On Economics Update:
Food banks are reporting record demand as Ferrari reports record sales.
