This is going to be short, sweet and relatively to the point. Remember who I am, I never get to the point unless I can circle around it for a while and think about it and talk about it and..
But I digress.
And today, before they all descend upon me bearing cutely wrapped ornaments and in many cases yummy food, I am deep in the midst of cooking and possibly cleaning. I am still a bit iffy on the cleaning. I mean, I will clean today and then have to clean again tomorrow. I am tired already and I may require more of the libation of life later in the afternoon.
But the thing that is bedeviling me. It is making me nervous.
It is causing me to break out into a severe flop sweat….
Is the weather.
Darn it, darn it, darn it, darn it!!! We have a Lake Effect Snow Warning through tomorrow night. Why oh why does it have to be now. Seriously, couldn’t it just have waited until tomorrow when it doesn’t matter if people are parking on the street.
Now this isn’t the first time that outrageous amounts of falling snow have happened when I have had the exchange. I mean I do live in the Frozen Northeast Ohio. And I do live in one of the four places in the USA where you can find Lake Effect Snow (the others being South Bend, IN; Erie, PA and Buffalo, NY). But really, 1 to 2 FEET of snow. Come on!!!
Just what I need is the city snow plow guy yelling at me again. And believe me, he has yelled at me before. This being the same city snow plow man who sometimes doesn’t get down my street to plow until 3 in the AFTERNOON. And he is complaining to me about cars on the cul de sac.
Give me a break and go have a cookie.
OK, now I feel better.
I am sure that I will have tons of pictures to share tomorrow and you know that there is going to be loads of talk about food and ornaments and stealing.
Oh the stealing that goes on around here. And I am still contemplating instituting the Hope/Heather/Laura K rule that there will be no collusion in stealing ornaments. Especially considering I saw some of those ladies at another party yesterday and they were already talking about manipulation of the system. My own personal Charlie Rangles.
Let’s hope that the snow slows down.
Cuz I am already tired and I don’t want to have to shovel the walk again.
