December 2005 Archives

December 4, 2005

Why is winter so busy??

The days are shorter yet the work is longer. Makes no sense. Nothing other than a whole lot of hurrying, scurrying and rushing going on around here. Christopher has started wrestling, Em has started basketball, Todd and Lucy are hunting all the time and I'm just in the office, the kitchen or the laundry room if I'm not at the school gym.

December will be so busy with basketball games, wrestling tournaments, and Christmas programs. Emily and I go support the high school girls team as if Eva were still here. Now we just focus on her best friend instead. Sure do miss that aggressiveness that Eva has though. The other night I was talking to her online while checking the stats for last year. I said "Honey, I am so proud of you! You led your team in something.... personal fouls!" hahahaha I thought it was pretty funny but she didn't.

We have not begun any sort of Christmas activity here yet. No tree up or lights, no presents bought. Looks like it will be another year where everything is hurried. I just hate that. Would rather skip it altogether than stress over it. I know that's not nice when there are three kids involved but really, aren't the holidays for relaxing?

My poor car

Those of you reading for a long time probably remember my dream car that I bought over five years ago. Oh how I love that car. It's in the shop right now with a bad cam positioner sensor and a bad something something brake sensor and leaky transmission cooler lines. I renewed the extended warranty on it, thank God, but it's still gonna take close to $400 out of pocket to fix it. It will be worth it but it was a very, very bad idea to take it in to the dealer before Christmas.

The first loaner car the dealer gave me was a 97 Sable and it was such a heap. It poured antifreeze all over the ground so took it back and got a 98 Olds Cutlass. It was probably a nice car 100,000 miles ago but now it's just tired and all lit up with check engine light and some other light. The CV joints pop and crack and it makes really interesting noises in reverse. I'll be glad to get my own back.

We got a lot of snow overnight tonight so there was no school today. I was disappointed as C. was to have his first wrestling meet of the year tonight and it was cancelled as well. I had arranged to get off work early and I don't know that I'll be able to pull that off again. All of his meets are at 4:30 and most of them are some distance away. I should've been a nurse so I could have a 7 to 3 shift somewhere.

Oh yeah, the snow. Makes me deliriously happy but this record cold is not even fun. The other morning I let the dogs out about 6AM and my hands were wet from dish water. Froze a hand to the door knob. Ouch!

Lucy's Snow Face




Lucy Snow Face



She is such a fun dog! I threw her frisbee into the big bank of snow that the dude cleared from our driveway. She went head first after it.

Are You A Republican?
