The Highway behind the house was so slow this morning and the snow was falling so fast I could barely see the cars! Unfortunately, I could still hear them.
We are supposed to get hit again tonite so good thing I stocked up the other day.
Sam also lifted thr old TV into the back of the FIT....off to the DI it goes. I'm taking it to the 4700 S 4000 West Store incase you need a 27" TV that takes 10 minutes for the picture tube to warm up enought to make out the outline. Remote is included. LOL
It turns out that I didn't need to load up my chairs, one of the young fellow's in the neighbourhood is getting married and is not above a bit of begging. I'm so glad to get rid of them I hope he and his bride get some good use from them. They are very comfy but also very bulky.
I found out the other day that it was BIL Hal who brought me the rose on Valentine's Day. How sweet is that? He said he would have taken one to Teresa too but He can't figure out where it is that she works..... so Mom & I got them. And here I was giving Djinni all the credit...she and the girls dropped by a card and so did Tami and the kids. I also got Valentine's from the younger girls in the ward. Nice to be remembered.
I'm thinking about getting off my duff and getting the basement finished so I can rent it out or something.
I also talked with LA about becoming a Foster Mom or short term Shelter mom. Just Ideas I'm kicking around. I did some research and it doesn't pay well at all but I wouldn't be lonely nor bored with folks in and out.
Thanks Hal! It was really sweet of you.

After more than 50 years of living in this world, here is what I've learned: THIS SAYS IT ALL: Time passes. way too fast! Life happens. Distance separates. Children grow up. With any luck! Jobs come and go. Got that right! Love waxes and wanes. (daily)Men don't do what they're supposed to do. Amen to that! :-)Hearts break., and mend Parents die. Colleagues forget favors. Careers end. BUT.........

We've had such a beautiful few days I guess we paid no attention to the fact it is still only February. The joke is on us.
I've had a very hard time watching the news over the last few days. The other night a man shot up the mall at Trolley Square downtown. He hurt and killed alot of people. Five people are dead and there were several taken to the hospital. An 18 year old had a shotgun and a handgun and died in a shootout with police. No one knows why he did it, or why he picked Trolley Square. An off duty Ogden cop was there and he got alot of people out of harms way then confronted the shooter along with a few other police but I guess it was quite awhile B4 they got everyone out. Totally Creepy.

I'm so excited! That's almost double the van's.
Once I get a few more miles on it and the engine gets broken in I should be getting even better than that. I'll have to change the name from "Smurf-Mobile" to "Lightening McQueen" LOL

I wish I was there to celebrate with you and the rest of the family.
Was not feeling too well yesterday but Dr can't see me til next week anyway. I realized that I had most likley skipped a dose somewhere on Monday but I'm not sure when. I woke with a terrible migraine that had me reaching for the Frog's emergency alert button as I dragged my sorry self into the kitchen to test only to find my blood sugar at 39.
Explained alot about whay I was feeling that way but if I skipped wouldn't that have raised rather than lowered it? I did actually eat though after I talked with Big Little Brother. So I don't what's going on.
five weeks and 2 days. I'm starting to feel halfway alive now. It's so hard without him. I think that the Palmer's must have truly been blessed to go together like they did. I wouldn't like to freeze to death but being alone is the absolute worst. I did some fun things last week for as long as I wanted without worrying about when I had to be home so that was cool.
Sunday night I went with MIL and family to the Palmer's visitation at the old church building. Based on the crowd there ( it was a true madhouse) they were right to hold the service Monday at the Stake Center. I've never been to anything like it. The girls did have some baskets and notecards stashed about and had asked that we share our thoughts about their folks.
This is basically what I wrote.
I met Reed when I was 17 and he showed me and my Aunt a house for our family of 9 to move into. Unlike some of the other Realtors we had talked to, he took me seriously when I'd say no my parents won't like this type floor plan. He not only helped us find the house in the neighbourhood he lived in it had enough bedrooms for us 3 older kids to have rooms of our own. Later I met Steve and when we got engaged it was Loa Fae who helped us with backdrop, flowers and decor for the reception. Two years after that Reed sold us our first house as a couple. I feel I owe him rather alot since if we hadn't lived right there I may have never met my Handsome Frog Charming.
