Snow's A'Comin'

 It's been one hell of a winter so far. We normally don't have this much snow this early. In fact, we've had more snow this winter so far for the first time in more than 20 years. And more is coming. Tonight we'll start an overnight fall of three inches. And then, on Saturday, we are supposed to get another nine to twelve inches. And here I am ... no snow blower because my DH looked at them, couldn't make up his mind, and decided that we don't need one for another season. If I didn't love him so much, I would have divorced his indecisive ass SO many years ago! It's a bet that I'll be awakening him so that he can participate in the wonderful experience of shoveling snow so that I can get to work tomorrow.

Snow Shoveling

Of course these storms also cut into our sales numbers in a year when we need every dollar. The fact that it impacts every business in our area is a given, but, of course, we are also impacted. So I'm hoping that we'll have a busy day today from customers trying to get in before the snow hits. It's been a slow week and we want to be busy and talk to lots of customers because customers are really why we exist. In the meantime, though, we'll wait for the snow - again.

I love your cartoon, I hope it won't get as bad as that! But yes, most husbands are designed to be indecisive on the matters that they don't really care about. Selective hearing is an associated design feature.

Good luck with customers!
Oh yes, the old "selective" hearing is in full swing in our relationship. The fact that he actually does have some hearing loss merely becomes more convenient at some times.

Hugs. I hope all went well.

They have predicted the coldest December in over 100 years for us, after a brief respite this weekend :(
Things went well. Today we're in a day of calm before 10"-20" of snow over the next 48 hours. My Saturday sales will be shit.

Got your lovely card today. So sweet. Thank you SO much.

Did you only get a card? There should be something else coming, but it may take longer, I suppose.
So far I only got a card, but packages usually take longer than envelopes. I'll keep my eyes open and let you know. (Now I'm SO excited!!)

Yes, I think they do, thinking of last year. Unfortunately, I couldn't put them together.

I hope you won't be disappointed, though you are too nice to say if you are. d;-) It is just a thank you gesture for being such a lovely reader/reviewer and person.
I don't think it is possible to be disappointed with a gift because it is much more than the physical item, it is the person and the thoughts behind it as well. I am looking forward to it :-)
