Snow Day

Well we got blitzed here in the NE with snow today. It is a wet and heavy snow that sucks to dig up off the drive way but looks heavenly on the trees. It is very pretty around our cute little town today but I am sure in 36 short hours it will be a brown disgusting mess.

Miss L is outside playing and I don't think I could get her in even if I plied her with hot cocoa and cookies. Mr. B who recently discovered his Y chromosome is cooling his heals in his room for some unbecoming behavior. Said behavior has left a nasty mark on his sister's face- got to get some vitamin E for her so there is no scar.

I am thrilled to say that I have spent time on the internet catching up with friends in bloggityville and even ordered everything I need for Valentines Day! Yes, I am feeling smug in my preparedness.

I am not thrilled to say that the day also included a fight with the receptionist at my GYN as she tried for the 5th time to cancel my appointment for tomorrow, and that I drove L to a Derm appointment which I was told upon arriving had been canceled due to the snow. I was then told that they had been desperately trying to reach me on my home and cell phone and left several messages. BS my friends, BS. I sat on my ass for hours with both phones next to me as I surfed the you know what and neither phone made a noise. Oh well. Life goes on.

Raspberries, Blueberries and Blackberries are still $.99 at the local produce place for all my local readers. I am on my second round of buying a dozen boxes and eating them by the handful!

I think I will go prepare the Cheese Fondue - the perfect thing to have when hubbie can't get into the office and we're all stuck at home on a cold day!
