. . . makes Lauren a dull, dull girl :( As you all know I am a working girl ~ a Monday through Friday 40 hour a week day job . . . unless there is a snowstorm . . . and then I sometimes have to work extra. Early Saturday morning our first real winter weather of the season was arriving, so I had had to work 10+ hours yesterday and I was back again this morning at 7am. To say my butt is dragging is an understatement, but my next paycheck will make it all worthwhile :) I have it easy compared to the snowplow drivers. Yesterday they plowed 16 hours and had to be back in at 3am and worked at least another 12 hours today. I don’t know how they do it. And this was for 5-6 inches of snow. Imagine what it's like for Julie up in Maine.
Thankfully my decorating is done. I hauled the last of the boxes back up to the attic and the DSO has modified a tree stand for me. The stand I got with the new trig tree is really cheesy. He put a C-clamp on it to keep it from wobbling, but the tree continued to lean and I was afraid it was going to fall over. I’ve already broken one ornament this year . . . a ceramic ornament my mom had made. I felt really bad about that, but thankfully it was a clean break and won’t be too obvious when glued back together. Of course there are still cards to be written, gifts to be bought and wrapped, packages mailed and that snowman mat to be finished. ACK! There is more to do than I thought . . . and there’s also an evening or two of hooking. That's if I remember how. It's been forever since I picked up the hook (well, 10 or 11 days feels like forever).
Ellie is very much like me ~ NOT a fan of cold and snow. I sometimes have to force her outside so she can take care of her "business". Here she is in her favorite spot snuggled up with her blankie. I just love how one ear flops and the other is so perky.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Wherever you are, I am hoping you are toasty.
Pug hugs :)
