"Oh the weather outside is frightful........"



There was a winter storm warning for today starting at 9:00 am so why did I decide at 11:00 am to go to HD & buy paint????? I wasn't planning on painting today but made up my mind I now have to paint the family room a different color! Not like I didn't have enough to do between cleaning up the grout lines & getting all the "haze" off the floor! But no - I decide to go out as it hadn't started to snow & I figured those weather men are always exaggerating or whatever. Of course once I'm in a store like HD I lose all track of time. While I was checking out the cashier said to be careful driving & I was like why?? I couldn't even find my car in the BLIZZARD & it is bright red. Did I have a snow brush in my car? NO! It is normally a 20 min ride home & it took me all of that just to get out of the shopping center! I tried several ways to get home & had to stop to "brush" the snow off - with my bare hands & pull chunks of ice off the wipers! I finally pulled into my garage an hour & 20 mins later & had to "pry" my fingers from the steering wheel.


All I can say is I'd better LOVE the paint color I chose!!!!!!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
