Seriously? February is already here. The older I get the faster time speeds by.
Before I do my update I have to be a good G’ma! It’s Girl Scout COOKIE time!!! BTW, Girl Scouts have come a LONG way!! You can now order on line and have them shipped to you! (If you don’t live in Carlsbad California you do have to pay for shipping. I thought I would be funny and I selected “Have Girl Scout Alice hand deliver” apparently I am NOT funny!! Now my daughter has to pay shipping. Sooooooooo BAD MOM on my part!!! So, please if you do order don’t choose that option. My kid is poor.
Update for last month. Snow. Then more snow. Then rain. Then freezing temperature and more snow. So in common core math this adds up to: TOO DANG MUCH SNOW with ice underneath. It also means the muddy ruts in the roads can swallow a car. AND basically has! The Husband with the help of the tractor, has had to rescue 3 trucks and 1 car already this year. We aren’t even in the Season of The Mud yet!
The snow is so heavy that it bent the smoke pipe in HALF on the roof of the modular home that we rent out. IN HALF people!! The contractor (bless his heart!) got his truck stuck in the mud down our driveway and he not only trudged thru hip high snow but did so with a LADDER!!! As soon as my tires started spinning I’d said “Peace OUT! See ya in the spring!” (Basically, I would make a terrible contractor!)
We also lost all the snow breaks off the roof of our house, so those need to be replaced. Thankfully, no leaks anywhere. Wait, I take that back the windows leak. ACKKKK! The deck flashing wasn’t installed correctly so the windows around the deck ALL leak. ACKKK!!! So, again water damage on the window frames and the window sills. We have to wait for everything to dry out before we can repair it…… so the hillbilly in me shines again!! Cute mugs and cute towels line the window sills. Might as well make it cute if I can’t stop it. Right??
Okay enough WHINING!! (YES, I really do crack myself up!) The reason you are really here:
