The Sun Is Still Shining

The sun is still shining here, but it looks like we are finally going to get a decent snow storm. The couple inches that fell on the contractor, and the couple more that fell while we were away, and blew away before we got back don't count. The kids are quite excited. And so my list for this Tuesday is this:

I guess you can see what is most important here. Both kinds of bunny food refers to The Kind The Vet Wants Them To Eat, and The Kind They Want To Eat. I mix a couple of cups of the second into the first. They pick out every bit of it, before moving on to the one that is good for them (Eat Dessert First!).

The chicken soup, saltines, and ginger-ale? Yes, The Younger Daughter is home from school today, thanks to a stomach bug that her band friends are passing around.

And the earplugs? The Man Who Lives In This House announced that he is working from home tomorrow during the storm. It's nice for him that he can do that, and be safe here, not on the road. But, he will be on the phone ALL DAY, doing his trouble-shooting (engineering stuff) and political maneuvering (people management), and listening to it makes me very tense.It's a small house, so...earplugs. 

For a really funny list, this Tuesday,  check out Aimee's pantry purge list. I think I may have some caramel sheets for caramel apples in my pantry, that I bought the first year we lived in this house. Ten years ago.....

Feel free to take any snow that is supposed to drop on us--it's already snowing plenty here.

Hubby has been and will be home all week because of no work available right now--I wish earplugs would make that a bit more bearable, as he's worse than a small child when he's got nothing to do. He'll be busy with snow removal tomorrow (as will the boy), but then I'll be worrying about him keeling over from too much shoveling. (Unless he annoys me one too many times, and then I'll be burying him under the largest snowpile I can find. ;) )

We've been snowed in for a couple of days and husband has been home since Friday evening now. His work is opening back up tomorrow, so he'll be going back to his routine and I to mine. :-)
