Sorry for the qoutes Theia. Not a fun AM. When it pours for a couple of hours and the temps are in the mid 20's, you end up with a lot of ice. Just salted my driveway. Probably 1/2 inch of solid ice on it. Temps are now righ about freezing, so hopefully between the salt and rising temps, I will be able to get out of my house at some point today.

Good morning everyone. <img alt="" src="http://bestsmileys.com/winter/14.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><b>Tim</b>, it's frozen here, too. All the trees are drooping.<br><br>
Today is my off day from running. Instead, I'm going to meet some girlfriends out for breakfast later this morning. Then I'm taking my dog to the posh pet store to exchange a dog coat I just bought him yesterday for a larger size. Not much else other than the usual housewifely chores.

I'm glad I didn't know that until after I got to work! I know that I didn't like the sound of the wind this a.m., and I made sure to bring my lunch so I don't have to go outside again til I leave for the day.<br><br>
There was a light coating of ice on my windshield and other car windows this a.m. Lovely. See, I have this big-ass crack in my windshield and I need to get it replaced. I hope to be able to replace it this week, so it doesn't keep getting bigger.

Hey folks!! It isn't quite 9am here and I have already gone through a box of tissues!!! I am hoping my boss senses my distress and allows me to bust out early today! I doubt it though!<br><br>
Got a call from DH last night, he made it to Nashville safe and sound but was in a rush, on his way to a party hosted by the Phillies!! NICE! I was having much more fun I am sure, eating leftover Chinese and watching the Discovery Channel <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
QOD: Ok if this was asked recently skip it but anyone have any really cool or creative gift ideas this year?! I am trying to bust out of the same old same old routine!!

Salt and warmer temps are working - cleared the driveway....<br><br>
Not that I did not appreciate SAHMs and Ds, but I am getting the full-on experience today. School and pre-school are delayed 90 mins. Because pre-school is only a half day program, I probably will not be able to get in a run during those hours. My 4 YO does have a birthday party this afternoon, so I might be able to go running then, if it is a drop off type party. Speaking of which, I need to go find the gifts we have....<br><br>
Today's Schedule:<br>
10:20 - Drop DS#1 at school<br>
10:35 - Drop DS#2 at pre-school<br>
12:00 - pick up DS#2<br>
12:30 - 2:30 - Birthday party for DS#2's friend<br>
3:10 - Pick up DS#1 from school<br>
3:30 - Drop DS#1 at acrobatic class<br>
4:30 - pick up DS#1<br>
6:15 - Drop DS#1 off at theater<br>
8:15 - Pick up DS#1.<br>
8:45 - All children in bed<br>
8:45:07 - open bottle of cab....

Hi Ya'll. DD1's birthday today, she's already asking for her present(s) and cake. I feigned forgetting she ever having a "birthday" and said she was confusing herself w/ her aunt (her b-day too). :evil<br><br>
Semi-irritated that my Bulldawgs ended up in the Liberty Bowl. I was hoping that we would've gotten the Music City Bowl (90 min from my house) or Independence Bowl (10 min from my Dad). Oh well I'll enjoy it on TV.<br><br><b>L-Tim</b>: Be careful out there running them errands.

Good morning all.<br><br>
Had a real scare this am. We got a couple of inches of snow last night to cover the rain-turned-to-ice from yesterday. The snow plows are out and the roads look pretty good. I drive country roads to work with drainage ditches on each side and while on the drive I see a police SUV with lights marking where a (looked new) Jeep had overturned in the ditch.<br><br>
I slow down to pass and then hit a patch of ice (I am assuming the same one that got the Jeep) and spin out all over the place!! The rear of my Explorer is completely out of control and I am dead sure I am going into the ditch myself. Thankfully I got control and didn't but I looked behind me at my tracks (while I was shaking uncontrolably) and my rear tires were actually on the lip of the ditch. The rest of the drive was not above 25mph.<br><br>
Sorry so long, just wanted to share my scare.

I forgive you.<br><br>
I love egg salad!<br><br>
Are you sick? Or sad? (((<b>Beaker</b>))) either way.<br><br><b>QOD</b> I'm very excited about what we're giving my mom this year. She's completely addicted to <i>Dancing With The Stars</i>, so we're buying her ballroom dancing lessons! Those suckers are expensive! I sure hope she likes it.
