This is getting really old really fast

They are forecasting 10 to 20 more inches of snow. I'm working today, but I'm very disquieted. I went to the store last night to get my mother some supplies she needed and to take the twins some dog food, since Mom is running low on their food. All the fresh food in our Safeway was gone, even bananas, which was the one thing I dearly wanted. I got two of the last packs of eggs they had, which I feel a bit bad about, but my mother needed eggs and, when my mom asks for something, I try to get it for her.

I will say, on the main roads, the road crews did a much better job clearing them than they did with the Christmas snow. They're mostly dry. The side roads are iffy. I had to park the car in the middle of Mom's street and put the flashers on, and then run in and out of the house as quick as possible. I thought if it got bad, I'd stay with her, but that's not happening, since there is literally no place on her street to put my car. So I'll stumble home tonight.

The supplies for my ring pillow came in the mail over the weekend. I've decided to go with GAST Morning Glory for the color. It's not an exact match, but close enough that no one will notice, and, if they do, hopefully they will have the good graces to not say anything. I'd like to get started on that soon. I think it will be gorgeous though, Morning Glory on ivory.

I've been whining about how much snow we're expected to get, but I have to say that I'm glad we're not getting as much as you. Be safe!

Here in the Ny metro area, we are expecting 10-12 inches starting 3am tomorrow and going on throughout the entire day ... we have got off scot free last week but it looks like we won't be nearly as lucky again.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
