Mark and Andrea came over with their 2 boys and Kate. They were all a tremendous help. It had mercifully stopped raining and snowing, but we still set up a fire brigade line to bring things in and up the stairs, so as to save the carpet. Andrea and Kate helped me unpack and put away all my kitchen stuff. It was bitter cold out today, in the 20's with winds gusting up to 40 mph. Verrrry chilly.
In other news... Sara is having a baby girl. I'm so excited, my best friend is having a baby!

Good news and bad news. The mover should be arriving around noon tomorrow. Wahoo, I'll get my things finally... BUT its a mess outside! Snow, ice, slush all over. Hopefully it doesn't rain or snow tomorrow.

It's supposed to snow/rain in the next day or so, which is NOT a good thing. The moving company is scheduled to arrive on Weds. Ug. We'll have to get some plastic to put down on our beige carpet before they track snow and goock all over the house.

My first snow
Originally uploaded by joleesikora.
It snowed last night!! It was only a few inchs but Hubby was annoyed because he had to wait for whoever it it is that clears the roads (mental note: need to find out who does that) to do so. But I was snapping pictures! Its really beautiful actually. My car is probably going to pinch me somehow in revenge for putting her through this.

I ventured outside, on my own, today to go shopping. After staying inside all day yesterday I figured I needed to get out. You have to be really motivated to leave the house when its so cold. Walking in and out of warm buildings and warm car into frigid wind that stings your face gave me a headache. It's no wonder people here get sick so often, that can't be good for you but I don't see anyway around it. Anyway....with map in hand I tootled off to the mall, driving a measly 45 because my car apparently refusing to shift when she's too cold too. I did have to smile though... get ready folks.... gas is $1.96. (And if you're not jealous enough, they pump it for us out here!) I gleefully rubbed my gloved hands together, thinking that maybe this place isn't so bad.... : )
Hubby drove his Mountaineer to work today and found another little surprise the boys had left him. Apparently they hooked a horn up under the rear bumper so that it would honk every time he stepped on the brake or used his turn signal (just the left one). I about died laughing when he told me, imagining his consternation and the look of bewilderment that must have crossed his face. Not to mention the looks from the drivers around him. I laughed so hard it brought tears to my eyes, I wish I could have been there to see it.
