Can I Start the Year Over?
Tossing in my 2 Cents About the World That Touches Me!
I have been suffering for the past two weeks with this cold. After forcing myself to lie on the couch and watching TV this weekend I have reduced it to an irritating cough. Buy stock in throat lozenges! It sure would be nice if parents would keep their sick kids at home instead of leaving them with the poor childcare volunteers at church.
I have never been so happy to see a year end. You might think I’m not happy with the year is because Pres Obama won. Well, that would only be one part of it. I was wishing the year would end quickly by April. I guess it was just a year in which I had tons of stuff crammed into it.
my garage door froze to the floor. I've never had that happen before. Of course it's never gotten to a minus 5 degrees either! I was late to work because I had to pry the door out of the ice. Hey, I've made to work every day this week so I'm entitled to come in late. I guess snow melted off the truck and traveled under the door where it froze. Tomorrow morning is projected to be below zero again so I placed some kitty litter under the door in the hope that it won't freeze to the floor. Fingers are crossed!
A few weeks ago I was talking with a member of the Springdale Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Springdale City Council. They were discussing how they were going to bring in more business'and the growth potential of the city. The City Council member mentioned that they were reviewing the City's ordinances to see if any would be considered business unfriendly. I suggested that once they had completed their review and revised the ordinances that they send a copy of them to the Fayetteville City Council. They laughed and said that Fayetteville's anti-business attitude is really great for Springdale. They were projecting that Springdale will have great growth potential while Fayetteville will shoot itself in the foot.
I woke up this morning with it raining ice. I saw that the trees and shrubs were getting a coating of ice. Boy, did I pray that it would transform to the promised snow soon. I didn't want to have falling limbs again. I did make it to work but left within a few hours after 4/5 inches had accumulated. I wanted to make sure I got home in one piece.
