Yep, more cold, more ice

Yesterday was a good call. With my clear mind I realized camping during a snowstorm in a brand new trailer is not a good idea. With my clear mind I was able to realize my Mom wasn't yelling AT me cause she had a bad visit with Aunt Lee and Uncle John. I just let her talk and then said "Mom, he's dying, there isn't much I can do, he's going to get worse, not better."

Why that calmed her down, I have no idea. But it did.

Actually, Oliver's puppy wailing has helped me too-I just let him wail if he's warm, safe and dry and I don't get disturbed about it. Eureka. Insight from a dog!

Mom had dual agitations about the weather, dreading it and being angry that I don't like the cold-"You should just go somewhere where you don't have to deal with it, although there are hurricanes and earthquakes....and..." so, I let her wail and then I said "here is where I am, and here is where I'll stay. You have to deal with something no matter where you are, and I have chosen to be here-I knew it got cold when I moved here."

I didn't share my own second thoughts I've had-they are MY second thoughts.

I got a box from Mim and I'm saving the opening for this afternoon after the weather starts. It will be something fun to drive away the sound of the rain (ice)(snow)....

I hate cold too but I have to admit that I'm a little jealous of you right now. I wouldn't mind being snowed/iced in the house for a few days. Happy weathering the storm and I'm glad you've got a surprise to open this afteroon : )

I would be happier if my tree were down and removed-it's still up. But, it is what it is, and I've got no where I have to be and the house is warm and my belly is full, so I really shouldn't complain.

Oh yeah, and Amazon sent my books (although they didn't arrive in time for my trip) so, yeah, it could be much worse.

Mim, I wish I had been able to video the opening of the box. I was ooohing and ahhhhing and holding each item and thinking "what did Miriam intend to do, what do I intend to do?" Soooo many possibilities! Thank you thank you!

The first thing that wants doing is an ATC-I've been wanting to try that-so you will get the first! (I say that like it's something to look forward to-teeheee.)
