Whoa! Crazy week indeed! – Winter has crashed our party! We had our first (unseasonably early) snowstorm. The predictors said one to three inches and we got eight. No one was ready. Ten minute commutes took hours. People slept on our local interstate, stuck in traffic. Here at the ranch, the beloved husband got caught with his magnificent snow blower still in the shed at the back of our yard under all that snow. There was some grumbling.
In addition – He had pulled a muscle in his shoulder so he had been treating it all week. Shoveling snow was not on the recommended list of activities. Oops! (No worries though. He got the snow out of the way so his wife could have her Starbucks! Whatta guy!)
Plumber’s crack? – Earlier in the week, the plumber came in for his part of the bathroom rehab job. I was pleasantly surprised to see a guy in his twenties. Kids are not going into these specialty professions and there is a lot of money in them (at least from the bills). He was attractive and did not have a plumber’s crack when he bent over. (Yes, I did check.)
Good luck club – I had dinner with some girlfriends. We do it monthly and seem to pick the bad weather day. We have been rained out (torrential rains!) and snowed out. I couldn’t believe our good luck in dining the evening before the storm. For that reason and having a really good night on Jeopardy (teen challenge week), I thought it would be prudent to buy a lottery ticket. Sadly my luck had run out and there was no winner.
Funny story of the week – During our major snowstorm there was a camel being transported to a working gig but the truck got stuck on a hill. The driver decided to unload the 1200 lb. camel, get it up the hill and then reload. People saw a camel walking along a major highway in a snowstorm in Pennsylvania. The camel did not make it to the gig as the owner decided to turn around and go home. No camels were harmed in this story but it gave folks a giggle. The joke is that you are more likely to see a camel in a snowstorm here than a snowplow.
So how was your week?
