Happy New Year!  Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy lives to read my blatherings. I appreciate you spending a bit of your free time with me and your comments mean so much.  I can't believe another year has passed us by.  Time sure is flying, isn't it?

I had a wild and crazy New Year's Eve ~ NOT.  As the new year began, I was on the phone calling snow plow drivers in to work.  The storm arrived hours earlier than anticipated, so I needed to get the drivers in.  Guys that planned to work today at 11:00 am were called around midnight to come in ASAP.  I don't know how they do it on little/no sleep.  We've gotten 4-5" with at least that much more predicted for the duration of the day.  I may be heading in to work . . . haven't yet heard if they need me (I DO NOT drive a plow).   My desk is piled high so I have plenty to do to keep me busy.  Basically I would be there to answer the phone of people calling because "they are a taxpayer and we NEVER plow their street" . . . lol!

May each and everyone of you be blessed with health, happiness and a bit of prosperity in this new year.

Thanks for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. What on earth are those pugs drinking??? Ha-ha!

    Yuck for more snow! Hope you don't have to go out in it for work. Much better to have a quiet day at home hooking and drinking hot chocolate.

    May the New Year bring you good health and happiness!

  6. I love your picture that is so cute. I do hope you don't have to go to work, but even if you don't drive a snow plow I think it would be so much fun.
    Stay warm and Happy New Year and I hope you have a wonderful 2014

  7. The pugs photo was funny. Perhaps you are chillin' and relax'n instead of hooking. Sorry you had all that snow but in all honesty glad it isn't here.


  8. I can only imagine the phone calls you receive. May you have a blessed year! They are calling for a dusting of snow here in Georgia, so that means no bread,no milk and most likely no snow. Lol

  9. Good morning Lauren, Happy New Year to you and yours...It is one degree this morning and the snow has begun to fall...another foot of snow will fall this day and into the evening...Sending greetings from Maine, Julie..

  10. sounds like a ton of fun! happy new year!

  11. I love the picture! I am definitely ready for no more snow and cold. yeah, dream on. haha.

  12. Your New Year's celebration was about as exciting as mine...yours was definitely more worthwhile:-)

    Hugs, Linda

  13. Great pug picture!!
    Hope all went well with work.
    Happy New Year!

  14. I saw that picture on Facebook and immediately thought of you! I'm guessing our snow plow guys are getting a few hours sleep because they will be out in full force by morning. (I really hate this winter)

  15. What a way fun for pugs to ring in a New Year, lol....
    I'm running behind in my comments but I always love to come visit your blog.

    Thank goodness for dispatchers like you who keep the ploughs clearing our streets. I really do appreciate those plough crews and I hope that they get a break from cold snowy weather.

    Wishing you all the best for 2014.
