>Frigid day

>It was a good thing we didn’t go to Manhattan today. It was very cold. I went to get my lunch and my ears about froze off! I still have a little headache from the cold.

Yesterday when Tigger and I were driving around, we say this car and the only thing the drive had cleaned off were the lights and enough of the windows to see out off. We laughed at it, a snowcar! Today while I was waiting for the train, because I missed mine, I looked across the parking lot and saw just the opposite, a car without a trace of snow on it! The owner must have a garage. My little car has clean windows but the top still has a bunch of snow on it. It hasn’t gotten warm enough for the snow to melt and slide off.

Tigger wants to go into Manhattan tomorrow. Of course we can’t, I tried to explain it to him. He thinks I can just not go to work. I told him we can go another day, maybe next week. Em suggested next Monday. He was said he wants to go tomorrow because the temperature is supposed to get up to 50ºF. I didn’t see that when I looked at the weather report. I will have to check some other sites.

As for my Weight Watchers progress, I weighed 138.4 this morning, I have lost 1.8 pounds this week. That means I am only up 6.4 from when I first started Weight Watchers.

>Change of plans

>Tigger and I were going to go into Manhattan tomorrow, but he bailed on me. His leg is hurting, well he and his brothers did a lot of snow removal this weekend. He probably pulled a muscle, Em said he should go to work it out, but he decided he didn’t want to go and do a lot of walking. So I have decided to go to bed early, I am just going to finish up this post.

Since I am not taking Tigger to Manhattan, I am going into work they will be surprised, since I told everyone I was not going to be in. I will just have to say, “Change of plans.”

I waxed my bikini line, I put my lavender bath oil on so now I am kind of tingly and smell like lavender. I like the smell and it does ease the burn of the waxing process. After all this time of doing it, just tonight I discovered that you need to stir the wax after you heat it.

So now I just have a few things to do before I sleep. I have done most of my routine, but I need to do a couple things on line.

>Canceled, probably because of the snow. I don’t know for a fact because I have not been upstairs yet.

Last night when I plugged in my I-pod to add the song Tigger bought, I-tunes said it had an update, so I downloaded it, then the computer said it need to restart so I said O.K., well the computer froze on the restart. I had to unplug the laptop and wait for it to shutdown, I turned it back on so and it was still frozen! So I unplugged it again, it turned off, I waited an hour, still frozen. So I unplugged it and left it over night. As you can see, it is working now but when I woke up this morning I was a little unsure about turning it on, when I did, I got the frozen screen said Oh No, then it went off and the computer finished the start up. I should remember from now on, to shut down the computer, this has happened before.

So now I am just sitting here blogging and listening to the radio, I just combined Tigger’s station with mine. OK, I don’t really like this song, but its not horrible. I clicked ‘I don’t like this song’ once before and I got this cute message, “We’re sorry! We’ll never play it again.”

Anyway, I forgot to check back in with Weight Watchers message boards so I need to do that now.

>Saturday Saga

>Book study was canceled this morning. I stayed up late working on my blogs, which are now complete, new blogs made, old blog post exported in and all my widgets in place. Anyway, I slept in this morning, till Tigger came and knocked on my door. Well, I was awake, just not up. Em wanted to borrow my train, no that’s not correct, she wanted to use my tickets so she and D could go down to the city, he’s back from his business trip. They didn’t go, they decided Harold Square would be too crowded.

I went to the bathroom, like I do every morning, and I felt water dripping, I thought it was the sink, then I realized the toilet was overflowing(ew ew ew!), so I grabbed my plunger and started plunging and it fell apart, literally, after the water went down there was a big piece of it in the toilet. I went upstairs to get dirty towels to soak up the water, Tigger had to come down to help me because I didn’t have my contacts in and couldn’t see where the water was. He came down to help which including carefully stepping in the bathroom to grab my glasses for me, the pair that is normally in my bedroom was not there. We got the water mopped up and I then mopped the floor with my lavender floor cleaning stuff and put the towels in the washer.

I knew I had to get a plunger, I really didn’t want to go out by myself so I asked Tigger if he wanted to go to the Verizon Store so he went with me. I left him at the Verizon store to get a fat free latte and cookie, then we went to Home Depot. We found a shovel that expands that will fit in the hatch of my car and looked at ice scrappers (didn’t like any of them) then went looking for plungers. There was one aisle that was closed for ‘safety reasons’ and guess what down that aisle? Yes the plungers, so we walked down the aisle and asked if we could get the plungers and the man said yes (I was glad, he was scary looking!) then as I was getting one, Tigger said, “You don’t have to get the cheapest one.” It was $2.98 plus tax, and they only had one kind. Then when we went to leave, the man had pulled the adult baby gate (seriously! it looked like a baby gate only adult sized) closed so we couldn’t get out(He did let us out). Tigger said, “He locked us in, and he is scary looking!”

Then we went to Lowe’s to see if I could get an ice scrapper there. The traffic was unbelievable. Tigger waited in the car. They didn’t have exactly the scraper I wanted, but I got this really cool snow brush with a scrapper, it is really long and I will be able to clean the top of my car off with it. I did get a scrapper, it looks like it will do the job. Then we came home. But that’s not the end of my ‘Saturday Saga’.

When I came in my bedroom and turned on the light, it burned out. So I had to go upstairs to get a light bulb and turn replace the bulb. Then I went to flush the toilet and plunge it out, as I was plunging, the bowl on the plunger turned inside out, so now I had a stick with a bowler hat on it. I turned it right side out and finished the job, then I turned it back inside out and asked to Tigger to come downstairs, when he did, I stuck my head out of the bathroom and said, “Maybe you were right.” He said what and I showed him the stick with a bowler hat and said, “I shouldn’t have got the cheapest one.” I can’t describe his face, but he got a laugh out of it.

Anyway, now I am hungry, so I am going to go eat something.

>Well, not really, not this one. I have a Glyde and the touch screen is temperamental. Some days I wish I had gotten the eNV II, but I am stuck with it. I should have said I love having a cell phone. However, I would not be buried with it, mainly because I don’t plan on being buried.

>new blog

>I hope I remembered the address correctly. I went into work today. Since I was up so late I overslept. Then I left early because it was snowing like crazy and Em said it was getting bad. I asked Tigger but I haven’t read his answer cause it came while I was doing this. After I finish transferring all my widgets I am going to start a new book blog and do the same with it. Gotta go now. I am on the train and I can’t see the river.

Here is the new blog. I know it looks just like the old one, but if you look at the blog archive, you will see that the posts go back to 2006. That was when I started my very first blog. Now I have all my posts in one place. I do not expect anyone to go back and read all my previous post. I’m not even going to do that. I just wanted them all together.

>but I need my sleep. I am hoping we will get all the snow we were promised, then I don’t have to go to work. I will finish up this transfer tomorrow, then put a post that people need to re-follow the new blog, then I am going to transfer, gulp, my book blog!

>over to my new e-mail address. I can export and import. So all my old blogs are now going to be one huge blog. Without adding this blog, I have over 300 posts. I wonder if there is a limit to how many posts you can have in a blog. I guess I will find out.

Anyway, when you export and import, it takes the blog posts and comments, including tags. I think that is just way cool.



I bought one yesterday. First one I have ever bought. I have had the juice and the seeds, but the Points Tracker doesn’t have the points for seeds just for a pomegranate. So I bought one to see how many seeds are in one. The answer is a lot. I cut it up in the sink and ended up with juice on the counter and juice on the floor and juice on the wall(!) and coffee maker(!). Not even a half of the pomegranate and I had a cup of seeds.

Herman is back and annoying as ever. He doesn’t have this blog address so I think I am safe. I am experimenting with my designs blog to see if I can start all new blogs with my new Google account.

>Allergy shots today

>I am just hanging around home doing a few little things on the computer until time to go. I need to check some things on my blogs before I go. Just wanted to get a post started for today. I will be back in a few hours with an update on my life, or lack thereof.
