In fact, woke up and the temp was minus 10 this morning. Oh it is sunny and all that but its also freaking ass cold.
More cold weather is predicted this week as well, with possible more white stuff. Hello, we don't want anymore and if what we have would just melt, slowly, we'd be quite content. A fast melt will be a major flood and we don't want that, picky shits aren't we?
Ya, we'd like to be spring chickens. It is my understanding that even Florida is not exactly warm and other southern states have definitely felt the effects of this rather long, cold, nasty winter.
I don't call this "global weather," I just call it a long damn winter and I'm sick of the tundra number. Now, when its this cold and windchill's -35 or more, even I don't care to be outside sno=shoeing or just walking about.
Last week I got to spend part of an evening and most of Thursday with my sister. It has been a long time since we have seen each and yes, we miss our sister in Florida too. We truly had a good time and nicely entertained folks at Macy's as well. Well, the clerk did say to us; "if you apply for a Macy's card, which only takes a minute, you'll get 20% off and then, I'll give you another 10% coupon." So we said, what the hell, go for it. Now, they needed a driver's license, credit card, and other information, such as date of birth, SS number, annual income (she said we could say zero) and other shit. Penny goes first, can't remember her SS number, so she makes one up but later admits that might be wrong, for income she says $200,000. And within seconds she has a temporary Macy's card and the shirts that cost $12. are now $6. So,now its my turn, I know my SS number and for income I wrote ZERO! Within seconds I was on the phone with some corporate ass confirming information and when she got to the income part, I calmly said, "hey, I'm on a day pass here." Needless to say I did not get a card, so I used my sister's and still got my shirts for $6. We told folks behind us they might want to go to another counter but no, they preferred to stay and watch this performance, it was alot more entertaining.
Ya, you jerk people around and you wonder why folks don't want your goddamn cards. Give me a break, I don't need this crap and I have no Macy store near me, so who gives a rip.
Regardless of all this bullshit, it was great fun hanging out with my sister, laughing and catching up on family gossip, etc. She hears one thing, I hear another, etc. Sometimes what we each hear matches, which is shocking as hell.
Thursday afternoon we head back north, in and out of snow storms but the drive wasn't too bad. Stopped for KFC and altho I love this stuff, its the most fattening food you'll ever consume. Friday was spent doing laundry as Hubby was leaving Saturday and for some strange reason, wanted clean clothes, he can be so damn fussy.
The best news, and hopefully this will occur, is Penny may visit me this coming week. Again, with our weather its hard to confirm trips because you just don't drive in snow storms unless its absolutely vital. We all have done the blizzard drive on I-81,and no thank you, we shall avoid it as much as possible now.
Here are some thoughts about growing older:
- Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
- The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
- When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think Algebra
- You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
- If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old.
Have a good one and stay warm (or cool if you happen to be where its warm).
