I'm a lister.....R U??

I SOOOOO am a list maker.  Here is my list for this last week......note the things that didn't get done will be moved to this new week???  And people think I have nothing to do!!!!!!  LOL!!!!
I have found if I put the list for each day on my calender that goes EVERYWHERE with me I remember things better!!!  Wait does that mean I'm getting old??????  My bday is coming up soon.....hmmmmmm!!!


How stinkin cute is this......a warmer/along with the rub ons that Baby Girl Mom can put on the warmer to decorate her self/and a bar of Berry Blush.
IF I were to be having a baby.....would be a very cool gift to receive at the baby shower!!!  NOTICE I SAID IF!!!!!

Please Explain

Why oh why is it that when at 2:00 IN THE MORNING I am the one that gets the poke from the lovely other half....."Honey Honey Hoss is you think he wants to go outside?"  Sure sweetie at 2:00 in the morning who doesn't want to go outside.  So up I get.....let Hoss outside to do whatever it is that he does BEFORE THE CHICKENS GET UP!!!  Let him back in....fall asleep on the couch (while I might add Hoss sleeps in the big fluffy nice chair).....only to hear the alarm go off at 3:00 AM!!!  Get the hubby up & moving so he can go off to work...then lay back down for a little while.  To come out of the bathroom from my shower to see this
Hoss dead to the world on the couch.
Seriously how in the world can he be comfy cozy all bunched up like that?

He really does have a hard life doesn't he????

Hard work

Why is everyone so tired at my house???  Here is what the oh so good lookin hubby & Hoss did in 2 days!!!!
Did I tell you about the tree that fell a few weeks ago?????  Oh a PURE NIGHTMARE!!!!  Well maybe not a NIGHTMARE but it definately was NO FUN!!!!  So after one of our 500 snow storms we have had....the wind was blowing HORRIBLY bad one day!!!!!  I'm at work....hubby is home for's ohhhhh about 23 degrees outside......and he calls to say that a popular had fallen and knocked the power line/cable & phone lines out of the house.  The dang 700 foot tree that was probably 100 years old (like all the other trees around our house) had come right up out of the ground root ball & all!!!!  Fallen on our side of the power line & just took our lines out.  Everyone else in the neighborhood had power/phone/cable/internet!!!!!  It took us only about 24 hours to be all back in working order...and could have been much much worse....I know people that had been days & weeks this winter with no power.  But this big pile of wood is from that 700 foot tree!!!! 
And now I wonder who is gonna stack it all?/?????  HMMMMMMM.....thinking maybe the wood fairy will come see us???  Probably not!!!!

Our latest snow

I THINK I heard the other day that the record for snow fall at the airport was 48 inches.....we've had like 39.  There were times that we had more than the airport.  So I'm figuring we've had way more than the record here @ the house.
