It's a-Coming

We're supposed to get a big snowstorm tomorrow. Estimates range from 7 to 18 inches. We'll probably not get much. ha ha.

Anyway, having ANY amount of snow in the weather forecast results with a rush to the grocery stores to get milk and bread.

My question is - why do people wait until a snowfall to want french toast?

But seriously, folks, this is Pennsylvania. Snow does fall here. Why all the panic? Even when we last had a real blizzard in 1994 and 1996, we were able to get out and around (if you wanted to) within a few hours. And that was without the town plow coming to our street. This was everyone who was able to pitching in to get everyone dug out. At that time all the old folk on my block seemed to have a snowblower, even if they were to frail to get out and actually use one. So the younger folk just borrowed 'em and got all the sidewalks and driveways cleared.

G r r r r

We got a couple of inches of snow overnight. No big deal.

However . . .

I had come to the realization yesterday (or it had finally dawned on me) that my UO was only doing his own laundry. I've been washing - and will continue - whatever is in the hampers in the basement.

This morning I see that UO shoveled the front walkway around to the side and cleared the deck outside the kitchen door, the sidewalk and the driveway behind my van. Of course he would've cleared his car in order to get to work. But he left my van untouched.

wow. what an @$$

Rabbit Rabbit for February

Time is still fleeting along.

I'm still a housemate of Unsignificant Other. This damn too-cold-too-windy-uglygrey-winter is really getting me down. And almost everyone I know, too,, even those that LIKE winter.

UO almost acted normal while our Girls were home for winter break (btw, they both got straight A's for their first semester!!). However, he did retreat to his room more and more as the days progressed. Now that they're back at school, he mostly only speaks to me when absolutely necessary. Seems to only do his own laundry (I wash whatever is in the hampers in the basement). In the beginning of our in-house separation, he would make enough food for two for dinner (he gets home first); then he started going straight to the YMCA from work w/o telling me. Or elsewhere, I'm not sure and I don't care. However, months ago he had made a point of telling me that I should let him know if I wouldn't be home to feed Salem - and he doesn't do it himself!

More imporatantly, I'm bugged by the bad vibes, the wierd faces, tones, etc. I'm relieved that I don't have the burden of the marriage anymore, but this ain't fun, either.
