It's been blizzarding all day: snowing sideways roundabout upsidedown. There is snow on half the windows and condensation on the others, which makes it very difficult to see out, when we look to see if it's still snowing...which it always is. Clifford the Big Red Rock is sitting in over a foot of snow with a whitecap on his head. All my shoveling gone for naught! If I didn't have to drive 2 kids to school tomorrow and if I didn't have a Very Important Meeting first thing in the morning, I might be tempted to play the snowed-in card. Actually, if it keeps up like this all night, I might have no choice but to play it! It will be the only card in my hand! I'll at least have to get up earlier than I would like in order to clear a path, de-snow the car and scrape the windows. *sigh*

The Very Important Meeting is to talk over the gigantic pile of work that has been cascading over us the past few months (much like snow, come to think of it), and what to do about it. I've been feeling on the edge of snapping for weeks now, and hopefully this will be a first step at figuring out some solutions. Some solutions must be found, because I can't take much more. I had lunch with my long-lost friend Geena today which was awesome since I haven't seen her in a DOG'S AGE. Would that be 7 years? Well, it's not been that long, but it's been a long time, anyway. She looked great and it was so nice to hear about how great things are going and how happy she is with her life. The best thing about Geena is that you always get to hear about how happy she is with her life, because her life is just how she wants it. :)

I've found a couple of fun sites recently: India Knight's Posterous, Picture Book Report

Argh I say to my crashy computer. Cut it out! The clock is half an hour slow, the explorer stops working all the time and I can't have more than 3 tabs open in the web browser without it freezing up like a PCsicle! ARGHITY.

I had the last piece of the Zucchini & Chèvre Tart tonight for dinner and now I am sad because it's all gone. Damn, that was good.

It took me only a week to completely edit and publish 2009. A week! To edit an entire year's worth of entries and photos and blabbiter lickum. Granted, it was a family-free week which meant I didn't have to wrest computer time from any kicking and screaming preadolescents, but still! Speedy editing, eller hur?

I need some new music. Music for walking to. Music for listening to over and over. Music that makes me tap my toes and swing my hips. Rec me!

Edited to add: I just looked out the window again. The walkway that I shoveled 2 days ago, that was CLEAR this morning has TWO FRICKIN' FEET OF SNOW IN IT.
