So, we are getting "Winter Storm" warnings all over the place. Snow is supposed to start coming down tonight and continue all day tomorrow. Our particular area (we're in a snow zone) is supposed to get over two feet! Yikes! I've never minded driving in the snow - good thing, too. Because RIT won't close, I'm sure. We're really getting hit with a lot of snow this year. Last year was pretty mild - it got cold, but we didn't get much snow. At least Johnny is enjoying it!
I've had boxes ready to mail out for ages - I procrastinated getting them to the post office so long that now I'm re-opening them and including Christmas gifts! I'm so pathetic...if procrastination were a science, I'd have a doctorate. Well, if we are snowed in tomorrow, I should be able to get everything wrapped up and ready to go.
I put our new 99 cent entertainment center up, and cleaned out the old one. We are really bad - I have almost 200 DVDs, plus seasons 1-8 of the X-Files, which is another 48 DVDs, and ended up tossing out about about 50 VHS tapes. I've got about 25 p[re-recorded movies to sell, and that's not counting the Disney ones. But I got the surround-sound working. We've had the speakers hooked up for a while, but I couldn't get it working properly. I got the correct digital cable, and it sounds great now.
Johnny got his hair cut this morning, and I did, too. His was getting soooo long. He has perfected that "head flip" that gets his bangs out of his eyes that boys do; anyone know what I mean? I got my hair trimmed; I'm growing it long again. It seems like all of a sudden it was halfway down my back. But it was straggly on the ends - it feels much better now. The only thing it needs is to be coloured now. My roots (the "white") are showing, lol!
I'm slowly but surely getting back to normal. I still need some more sleep than I like, but I really do feel so much better. I'm getting things organized, cleaned, repaired, and thrown out - stuff that hasn't been done for a long time. I'm not having a yard sale for a while, but I'm getting the stuff ready. Next spring, I'll have a lot to get rid of, and I'll donate the rest like I usually do. We have waaaay too much "stuff."
I'm so jealous of all those in Europe who have been enjoying the Apo concerts - it sounds, without exception, like they are fantastic, and the guys are in great form. But I also want to see all of you again, and meet those I haven't met yet. I'm really hoping that a lot of you can come here next year and hit a couple of concerts!
Kristina is home, she had her last day Friday. She has almost a month before she returns for the Spring semester. She'll probably be substitute-teaching most of the time. Life is good for her now - she's doing well.
Well, I'm off to do some more cleaning/wrapping/organising! If I've promised you a package, please forgive me for being such a loser and so cheap that I am waiting to mail to you until Monday. As I've said before, I mean well...
