I Decided to take both today and tomorrow off they are my rest days but we have been working so much overtime I could have worked both days but as we are also working 10 hour days i just took both of these days off. I have a lot of plowing to get done both at mom' s place any mine I put the quad on trickle charge last night so it will be all charged up, but when I got up this morning it was -2 degrees out so i am going to make breakfast and wait till it is at least maybe 20 out. My wood burner has been working overtime but at least it is nice and toasty inside..
Only 7 more weeks till March oh speaking of march we went another year injury free so we get a weekend in Erie at the Casino again plus a nice dinner and celebration the dates are march 6th or march 20th so that is a good time to look forward to last year was a blast..
I Think we are having a heat wave it is now 9 degrees Out Bertha thought she wanted out so who am I to argue I sais Ok and out she went I swear she stopped right outside the door turned and gave me a dirty look she went about her business and a couple minutes she was outside shouting to get back in LOL don't blame her, I went and brought in an armload of wood and it is still cold at least I finally got it to 72 degrees inside I keep my thermostat on 60 to try to save some on my gas bill the wood burner sure does help
This is what I woke up to New years morning we have gotten a couple inches since then I guess living in PA it is just life I can't wait for march to roll around only 8 more weeks. I just checked on Mom and she is doing fine and just staying in and keeping warm
All the holidays were nice Mom felt good over Christmas she did not over do it as she did on Thanksgiving I went over on Christmas eve to help her with all the food prep and it all went well and everybody had a good time I got a clock that has voice command LOL so cool i have it in the bedroom still am using my old alarm clock also still don't trust it but so far it works good also Cris got me a trash can that has a motion sensor to open the lid I like that at least it keeps Bertha out of it but everytime I walk into the kitchen it opens but very cool..
I just stayed home for New years eve, was not in the mood to go out and did not make plans so I was just in for the evening and the New Year came just as well as if I had gone out. I worked yesterday it was my scheduled day and am off today am glad I decided to stay home I had my choice of working overtime today or tomorrow i chose tomorrow to work and as it is 7 degrees out today am glad to be in and keeping wood in the burner going..
They were calling for a lot of snow overnight last night and today but it did not happen just in case I went and got gas for the quad $14.28 for 5 gallons I can still remember when it only cost a couple dollars to fill a 5 gallon can but I can't change that miss the good old days. It will be a good day to stay inside am looking forward to staying warm and watching some football I am thinking this will be the last game of the season for the Steelers at this point they don't stand much of a chance of making the playoffs but I guess you can't win them all..
Friday i had the bright idea to sleep on the couch to keep the wood burners going all night and of course pulled something in my shoulder it hurt all day yesterday and last night so finally this morning I broke down and took a couple Aleve a bit ago and it is beginning to feel a lot better it sucks getting old sometimes..
