I survived the blizzard of 2008.

Seriously. That's what they called it. We ended up with 20.4" of snow. By the time we shoveled out, we had a 4 foot pile in front of our front door. Of course, it's Ohio. So it's all melted now since it's been raining for a WHOLE DAY.

Since our yearly "snow dump" has ended, I figured it was time to start gardening. And now...I haz tomato seedlings! I'll post pics later this week.

"white death"

I grew up with snow. LOTS of snow. But now, two inches throws me off. Only because I am worried about everyone else who doesn't know how to drive in it. Or doesn't realize that with a FORD EXPEDITION you can go faster than 10 miles per hour on slush. Or that you need to leave some extra stopping distance between you and me, Mr. I-am-going-to-tail-gate-you behind me! Luckily they let us out early, so at least most of the idiots were still at work.

I have plenty of food in the pantry and fridge, eggs and milk, things to make bread, and frozen meat. Lots of things to do too. I think we might be housebound for the weekend. Send search parties if you don't hear from us by Tuesday.

you vote like a GIRL!

Okay, I voted for Hillary yesterday.


Part of me struggled with the idea of voting for her because I wanted to see a woman run for President… to be President.  I couldn’t rationalize voting for her JUST because of that.  Because, like Maggie said, I didn’t want to answer my daughters “No” when they asked if I voted for our first female President.


So I did a little more research.  Business Week.  Watched the MTV interviews.  Probably could have done more… but I tend to follow my gut and my gut said “vote Hillary”.  So I did.


Then I came home and got a phone call from Barack Obama.  Sorry dude… I already have a date for the party.
