Grumbles & Good things

I'm tired of having to change snowy socks & pants every time I come in from walking the dogs.

I'm tired of having to towel the dogs off and then blow-dry them every time we come in.

I'm tired of salty white footprints everywhere.

I'm tired of the weather forecasters saying "flurries" while snow is pounding down (3 inches this morning just while I was at work).

I don't like the fact that they don't bother to plow the parking lot where I work, which means that I have to start the day by wading through snow up to my knees.

I'm tired of the weatherman saying "cuddle alert!" whenever the temps are going to be in the single digits. It was cute a few years ago but is getting tiresome now.

I'm tired of being up here when all of my family (except DH) is in the south... what good is snow if you don't have some little kids to help you build a snowman?

I'm tired of taking snow photos with a camera that wears out batteries after only 8 pictures.

...SHIFTING GEARS...

I'm glad Hillary & Obama finally got down & dirty last night. Much better than all the mumbles - just get it out in the open already!

I'm glad my mom came through her heart surgery/stent Thursday with flying colors.

I'm glad I was able to spend several days with my parents & sister around the time of the surgery.

I'm glad my niece got to spend the weekend with us (she lives 16 hours away so it was a big deal). We had a GREAT time!

I'm glad Hillary & Obama looked contrite when John Edwards started talking about hungry children & health care after their squabble. Kind of shows that maybe they know what's important.

I'm glad I have a DVR. It's the coolest thing. :-)

I'm glad I like snow. If I didn't I'd be dead right now....

...but I'm ready for Spring.

I'm ready, too.

Glad to hear the stent, etc., went well. It is always nice to be with family during those events.

Send me some snow!! We want snow in Texas!!!

And what's this I hear about camera batteries? What camera do you have? I just had a similar issue and with a little research discovered that my Kodak wasn't made to work well with regular rechargable batteries so I went on to calcellular.com and was able to buy a lithium rechargable and charger for about $40 and now it works great.
