A few things.
1) I'm still working on my Jacob post and I will put it up before Wednesday. It'll probably look something like this:
Thing is, I'm not done with it yet and we're looking at an imminent snowstorm. A REAL snowstorm instead of the usual spitting of snow that barely covers the grass. They're predicting 8 to 12 inches for us tonight. Yikes! That means Hubs and I will spend the night pushing people out of our ditch instead of writing wonderful blog posts.
2) I hate the snow this year. I usually love winter. I love wearing my big sweaters. I love soups and stews on a cold night. I love my big fluffy blankets and wearing my peacoat and crochet scarf everywhere. I even love snow, usually. But I hate it this year. It mocks me. Besides, it has been snowing every week for the past month. It's ridiculous. Usually we have one really good snow of a few inches. It's enough that I can plop M down in it and take a cute picture and go back inside with my hot chocolate maker. This year has been different, though. Then there are idiots who try to drive in it. Snow where I live is different. If it's on the road, then there's most definitely a layer of solid ice underneath it. Even snow chains aren't going to help in that. We live at the bottom of a hill and people try to climb that hill for hours every time it snows, but they can't make it so they roll back down. And where do they land when they roll back down? That's right. Our yard. So we have to push them out so the next moron who gives it a try doesn't hit their car. So that's what I'll be doing tonight instead of writing a lovely blog post.
3) There's a strong possibility that we'll lose power. Before we had a child it didn't bother me. Now it really bothers me because without electricity, we don't have heat. Our next house will have a fireplace. Anyway, I'm so nervous about keeping M warm enough if the power goes out. So if I don't update this weekend it's not because I'm dead. It's because either some idiot hit the power pole trying to drive on the ice, or the heavy snowfall caused broken branches, resulting in the power going off.
4) LOST is this coming Wednesday. I am so excited. Hubs said we should have a party, but I told him to shut his fool mouth. Where there are people there are people talking. And I don't want anyone talking during LOST this week.
Hopefully I can get the Jacob post done tomorrow. Much love to my blog buddies!
