Snow, birds & Sunset

I feel like I am taking one step forward & about ten back every day!  The house is a total "war zone" & I am discovering this is way worse than moving!  At least if you are moving things get put in boxes & labeled so you stand maybe a half a chance of knowing where things are!  We managed to empty our other two rooms.....most of which went into the office which happens to be the smallest of the three.  There are very "narrow passages" between the furniture but lots of luck figuring out where you might find clean socks or undies!  What didn't fit went downstairs in Popster's man cave.  His biggest complaint......he can't find his way to the bar to make a cocktail!  Poor baby!

It was a rat race all weekend getting the rooms empty & doing all the painting between trips to either L*wes Or H*me Dep*t to buy paint, trim, baseboard etc.  We have a standard joke every time we walk in the door "here goes another $100"  Seriously it is between $104 & $112 every time & we have been making daily trips.  Every other trip involves trying to bring home 12 foot long pieces which have to stick out of my window & usually there is a gale force wind or it's snowing ! 

Fun times!
These pics are from the big storm last week that dumped 13+inches of snow on us

This is Popster snowblowing paths in the backyard for Molly!

Just one of a few things he does for her
I had to shovel my way to the bird feeders
They are going through a lot of seeds this year

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…
