"War has been declared"

Actually there are two battles being waged today....the interior one against the "dust woobers" & the exterior one against the icicle that are taking over all the eaves of our house

I got up this morning resigning myself to the fact that we will be living like this another week or more!!! I was told yesterday the counter tops will take anywhere from 7-10 days......I'm hoping closer to 7 but who knows!! I cleaned & dusted every single room in the house & I'm sure it will be just as dusty tomorrow but for now I can relax & breathe again!!!

This is what our eaves look like because of the continuous snow we had going on last week.  It created the problem in the kitchen which got "band-aided" until spring, but then yesterday realized the front was creating a problem.  The ice on the edge of the roof was about 5-6 inches thick so when it melts the water finds a different way out.  It was getting behind the siding in the front of the house that overhangs....not good!!!  Popster is outside trying to get it off the roof.....he is on his 3rd bag of "magic salt" & is finally making some progress.  The joys of winter!!!!
I looked outside & saw that he had all the snow of the deck.  When I asked him what he was doing, he just pointed at the grill & said "Burgers"  Do you think he's tired of microwave food????

Here's where we had coffee when we took a break from all our hard work!

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.


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


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me 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 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…
