It looks like snow, but it isn't. For 15 hours yesterday it sleeted. Tiny little ice balls falling out of the sky, hitting my windows, stinging people in the face when they were out walking. Vehicles sliding, crashing, hitting other cars, guard rails and going into ditches. I seen no plows, no salt trucks, none what so ever yesterday. It is a total mess outside. And today there's a chance of snow, although the sun is shining right now. It won't be doing much in melting the ice, due to the fact it is so deep. Over 6 inches of ice, ice and more ice. Man, I hate winter. Jim is outside, trying to clear the ramp, sidewalks and van of this ice. He took a couple pictures for me of outside. So here they are. Don't let that white stuff fool you. It looks like snow, but it's not!!!!!!!!!!!!
YUCK, YUCK,YUCK,YUCK,YUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait for some warmer weather. There is some good news I heard last night on the news when they were doing the weather. Weather man said this weekend is a mess, but next weekend when Jeanne and I meet at the Berlin Auction, it's suppose to be in the 70's and sun is suppose to be shining. Let's keep our fingers crossed he is right. I can't wait for next saturday to arrive. Not only is it the day I meet a new friend, but it's also the 28th yr I have been married to Jim. March 24, 1979 is when we were married. I will be doing an entry with wedding pics. I didn't have any but 2, but my dear friend MaryLou who was my photographer the day I got married kept copies and she has emailed me more pics of my wedding day. The gown I was wearing on my wedding day, was the gown she wore the day she got married. So that made it extra special. She is alot taller then me, so I had to wear 6 inch heels to wear the dress and not have it drag on the ground. Ok enough said about my wedding. I will tell you more about it in a few days when I make the entry.
Jim just came up, and said it is solid ice outside. He has to bust up the ice off the sidewalk then shovel it off. He'll be outside for a while. I have some house work I want to get done. Mainly the bedroom. Things are so unorganized in there. My dresser seemsto be everyone's storage space lately. No lie, there is a box (bigBox) of paper work on my dresser, clothes, linens, tools, toys, unmated socks, and lots more just on my dresser. There's a huge box of lil girl clothes in my room all too small for Rebecca and Marissa. I want to go through them and send most of them to my niece Sharon, who is having a baby girl in May. I love the name she has chosen Jacqueline Louise. Pretty isn't it? I got a feeling that lil baby girl is gonna be spoiled rotten, lol. Sharon's older sister Donna just found out a few days ago that she is pregnant again. I know Donna is happy about that. She has wanted a baby girl for a while now. I hope this baby is a girl. Donna and Sharon's oldest brother Eddie and his girlfriend Chrissy are expecting their son to be born any day now. Eddie has a daughter from a previous girlfriend. That lil girl is 6yrs old and such a sweetheart. My poor sister, her kids are making her feel old. When the above mentioned babies are born, she'll be a grandmother of 8 kids. But it's ok, she's use to alot of kids. She had 7 kids of her own, 3 boys and 4 girls.
The other night at dinner table, Jim was teasing me and said so hun, Ya wanna have more kids? Well, I calmly told him, I would pull a loraina bobbit on him if he ever asks me that again, lol. He shut up real quick, lol. Me have more kids? I don't think so. I am gonna be 46yrs old in June, I have 2 daughters and soon to will have a third grandchild. I don't need to have anymore. Besides the best kids are the ones you can spoil, fill up with treats and send home with their parents, hahahaha. I only got 1 problem though. I can't seem to find anyone willing to take my child for a night or two except for my cousin. She kept Rebecca a while back for me. I missed my baby like crazy, but I so enjoyed the quiet. And I got so much housework done. My apartment was spotless. Until Rebecca returned home, lol. You can always count on hurricane Rebecca, lol. Well, I guess I had better go now. I want to get a start on my bedroom.
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY TO EVERYONE.
