Great idea!!

Here's a great idea for recycling/re-purposing those old T-shirts that you've outgrown or are otherwise unwearable (but hard to throw out).


Blizzard 2.0!!

We're getting hammered again.

This time we're only getting 10-15 inches of the white stuff. However, this time it comes with 20-40 mile per hour wind!

White out!! (insert Wipe Out music here)

In the midst of all of this, I caught the stomach flu. It was pretty bad. Not quite as bad as the dreaded New Year's flu, but bad nonetheless. I didn't make it home from work before I started puking. Thankfully, my dearest Ellen and I carpooled, so she could drive while I vomited into a Target bag (Thank you...would you like to apply for a Target VISA card today?)

I think I may have lost a few inches of intestine as a result of the amount of puking I did. I shivered and shook and ached. Nastiness!

Here are some wintry pics!!

The dog wasn't too happy about the lack of yard space...

I was more than twice as deep as she is tall!!



It is snowing like no tomorrow.

It's been snowing about 24 hours now. Its about up to my waist on the deck. The DC area hasn't seen this much snow in decades. It's more snow than the nearly two feet we got right before Christmas (Dec 19th snow storm).

I will post some pictures as I get time to go out and take them.



I've hired an attorney to settle or plead my case to a jury.

It will be months before things get settled of course. There are a lot of things that will have to happen, but I've changed. Every little twinge or feeling makes me wonder if I'm going to have a heart attack.

Stay tuned....I'm sure I can't post everything about the case, but I will do what I can.


Texas blogging


I managed to make it back from my trip to Texas unscathed.

I worked hard and enjoyed some really good BBQ. I also ate one of the most delicious hamburgers (a tie with Five Guys) at a place called Terry's. It was built inside an old gas station. Very cool.

I had to leave early because there was a massive snowstorm coming to the DC area. That was fun....not! The flight was packed and bumpy. It left at about 9pm Texas time and arrived at about 12:30 DC time.

My dearest Ellen had all sorts of trouble while I was gone. The Grizzwold curse really took over while I was gone. Just before leaving my middle daughter had gotten some sort of stomach issue. We thought it might have been some bad restaurant food, but when my littlest one got sick with the same symptoms a couple days later (bad enough to have to go to the ER) we were sure it was a stomach flu. Later on my oldest got the same thing (and had to go to the ER as well because my dearest thought she had appendicitis) . In and around all of that, my dearest had to go to the dentist and eye doctor too. I am very proud of her for flying solo.
