Bah! No fair you guys are getting snow! :angry: It was 67 degrees here today- we had all the windows open and the kids are wearing shorts.

And we didn't move down south till I was 10, old enough that I know what I'm missing!

sigh... we haven't gotten a decent snow in three winters now. Keeping our fingers crossed for this year!!!

I'd gladly trade--it was nasty today here--40 and rainy and gloomy. Just nasty :angry:

Our temp was in the 50's today. I'm not particularly fond of cold weather ... and I grew up in the north! I'd be perfecty happy to move back down south ... not Florida though .... I like a little bit of season change.

Man, our seasons change just TOO MUCH here...minus twenty in the winter, plus thirty-five in the summer...and HUMID!

We had snowflakes today, too. Gus likes to bite them. Such a childish goofball. Wait...I like to do that, too....

I know, it was just so not right.

I kicked back on the front porch, in shorts and a t-shirt, bare feet... watching the kids romp around in the yard, with ORANGE and RED leaves blowing gently in the warm breeze. :blink: Utterly bizarre!

They say it's supposed to get cold again by Friday... In NC, you can never pack away either type of clothes- summer or winter. It bounces up and down too much.

I remember one year, when I was a kid.... it was 72 a couple days before Christmas, and snowed a week later.

I have to admit, it was a pretty picture today at the Med Center, there were still red leaves on the trees and this fresh blanket of white snow, the first snow of the season. The color in the leaves just looked so much brighter. I wish I had my camera on me. I never saw anything that pretty in real life, only in picture books.

Bloody sunny here. Bah! :angry: Well, it was dark and foggy in the morning, loved it, felt very holiday-ish. Now, sun coming out.........I am envious of you people with the dark gloom......I just think it makes the holidays SO MUCH cozier when it's cold and dark outside!!!!!!!

Patti - a heinous headache? whatever for? Feel better. :)

Cooking has started. Today I'm making lasagne to freeze and take for Saturday night. I've made chex(type) mix, muddy buddies and tonight is the choc chip cookies. Everything gluten-free, of course so that the kiddos will have some proper treats when everyone else is going hog wild on the gluten stuff at my mom & dad's.

Doing Christmas while we are there so have to get all the presents wrapped as well. Somebody needs to start packing!!! Ugggghhhhh!!!!!!!

Good News! The head count is down to 19. I'm working on a sineous infection myself. Think I can get a doctor's note excusing me from the cooking?

Excellent motto . . . fits us, perfectly. And where do we go to buy these T-shirts and coffee mugs? Anybody selling them on ebay?

68 degrees here today . . . falling temps and rain tomorrow . . . snow and ice for Thanksgiving. Whatever. Just so it's not icy when we are driving.

Time to go kill that turkey.

Susie, get off and go do your work!!!!

Well, she was here when I started this post.

Hey everyone! I'm one of those newbies Susie or Emily mentioned, who came across this thread by chance. I love it! :D

I really wish I had seen the toaster poster...although that was posted before I was diagnosed, so I wouldn't have had a reason to be here.

Also, to combine the cat comment and the dutch oven discussion, the absolute worst is when your cat farts on your pillow and/or you in bed. :blink:

Change blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything. Creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it's still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild.

For some reason the vision of some cute, cuddly, soft, warm, purring fluffball with weapons grade gas is hysterical.

Bloody sunny here. Bah! :angry:

Wonderfully sunny here! :) ahhhhhhhhhh .. . :)

If you see me here again, scream at me............. :huh:

:lol: riiiiiiiiight . . .. .

I spy w/ my little eye . .. . . Dingy here ~12:20p . .. .

<but tom's not falling for THAT again!>

Meanwhile, back at the fantastically located, but too small, apartment, I can let out a general purpose scream to be interpreted however one likes.

In my case, it's the annoyance & frustration of TOO MUCH STUFF!!! :angry:

Why do I have this? . . . .Why do I have THIS? .. . . . . Why does my roommate think the front/coat closet is a good place for his bin of extra sheets??!

Sounds like a good time for a trip to Salvation Army or Goodwill. :) I love getting rid of stuff!! :lol: So do my kids! It's hysterical. They get it from me ... hubby is a packrat .... but no more since we've moved so many times in the past few years.
