The FedEx man just came! Whoohoo!!! We now have French Toast, Mudslide, Southern Pecan and Butter Toffee coffee for the Keurig! Good timing, Bugs just used the last flavored k cup. I want to make one of each RIGHT NOW and really, I don't need any more coffee today. Well...one won't hurt right? Which to have, which to have...

I'm trying to convince myself to go out. I have to pick up a few groceries and some wine and I have to pay my car registration.

They are drawn to light. So shut off all lights except one. Just don't make it near one food. You don't want it to drop there.

It's hiding now. Dinky may have nailed it. He's like greased lightening.

Just came back from a walk. Picked up some groceries and some wine. Freezing rain warning in Eastern Ontario this evening. I have the supplies to ride it out, now...

Yeah, freezing rain warning for tonight for Western Quebec.

I only made it to the CAA for the car registration and Costco. By the time I had brushed the snow off of all the windows, the rear window was covered in snow again. I had intended to go to the health food store too, but I didn't want to brush the snow off the car again.

I also learned that my glasses fog up in this weather if I breathe through my mouth. What a PITA.

Trying to find something -- anything -- that legitimately needs doing so that I can ignore the folder on the counter with the income tax stuff. My first self-imposed deadline was two days ago. Sigh.

This morning I am starting the search for a new car. I hate that more than any other thing in my life! Yesterday my "teenager" stopped in mid-flight to take a rest and refused to start until after I had called the garage and the tow truck. I think I waited about six months too long on this one but, it is so hard to tell when to start this whole process.
