guess I figured wrong

I thought everyone bought enough groceries to last the ice age earlier in the no evidently not beacuse the store was an absolute nuthouse this afternoon it took me twice as long to take care of my weekly shop which got me cranky, talk to myself cranky and you would think people would get out of the way of a cranky lady muttering under her breath but again no it just made them move slower and/or stand in one spot blocking access to the rest of the aisle

yes I watch too much tv

so shoot me I also read a lot too but I like to unwind watching trashy tv made entirely easier with he invention of the DVR thank you um well whomever invented that. here are a few of my favorites in no particular order:

-NCIS yes I know it has been on for quite some time I just started watching it
-Burn Notice yay about to start up again
-Top Chef-
-Deadliest Catch

-Project Runway
-Bourdain No Reservations new season starts Monday!!!
-Closer-Law & Order Criminal Intenet
-Men of A Certain Age
-Ugly Betty-
-Greys Anatomy
& Private Practice
-In Plain Sight
-The Good Wife
-pretty much any of the Real Housewives series on Bravo except maybe the OC the original has never really held my interest
-Rescue Me
I watch other stuff too but these keep my DVR pretty full!

snow day

yeah not really for us growned ups but the kiddos are out of school. I would love a snow day comfy & cozy in my pjs but David & I will fall back to our snow routes and go to work together 'cause you know what icy roads I don't like 'em never have even when I lived in the land of real snow-yes I am a snarky northerner when it comes to snow and you know what the only difference is "they" clean the streets all of them an generally really well so you aren't trapped in your house. Luckily C will get dropped over at MIL for snow day at her house which I am sure will entail lots of video game playing. I guess we should get this show on the road!

early dismissal conundrum

calling for snow this afternoon so what do we do with C should the schools close early?
Last year I let him take the daycare van as he does every day I went to daycare and waited close to 2 hours for my son to arrive they have 3 schools to pick up from and each and every school was evidently utter & complete chaos. And while the roads never got too too bad the road to daycare and the hill it is on was not good I was none too amused and I was already not amused by having to wait for 2 hours for my kid to arrive. So I signed the sheet that he would be picked up by a parent or grandparent, now if it is snowing I know the grandparent who is local would not venture out to pick him up so I will be keeping a close eye on the weather and school information and hopefully just hopefully the weather will hold & the snow will start later this afternoon like 4 or maybe 5pm would be really great

and the 12:45 update
not a single damn flake and the schools are closing exactly 1 hour early which means as worked out previously with C this morning I will pick him up from school!!!!! UGH!!!!!! As there is no inclement weather picking him up at daycare would have been easier but I said any early dismissal and I would pick him up so the million dollar question is when do I leave work? and how horrible will the horrendous pick up line be exactly?

the things my husband does to drive me crazy

or crazier as the case may or may not be...
He has decided to go dairy free not completely nutso I suppose however a pain since he informed me after I had planned the weekly menu and finished grocery shopping.

life without people

interesting enough the first time I watched but a series? really?!?
Do they ever explain exactly where all the people go? There does not appear to be any corpses or anything hanging about are all the people abducted by space aliens? Inquiring minds wanna know.
