Peace, Quiet and Towing Cars.. Chevrolet Suburban Style..

This is what the TOP of my driveway looked like this morning.

This is what the bottom of my driveway looked like last night.

Gary Lezak (my favorite weather guy) said it would snow.. and we wouldn’t get “much accumulation”.. as it turns out we received about 2 more inches.  Since blogging yesterday about my UPS Driver.. The Man and P*trick  (pronounces P  Trick) also became stuck and could not make it up the driveway.  This morning #2 got up and used the Kabota (tractor) to get them out. Being the kind of girl I am.. I’m not really.. a morning person.  I wasn’t up.  I did get up pretty quickly when #2 came in the house to tell me that “#1 was stuck in the driveway.. in the Suburban.

I flew out  of the house without my camera.. (dummy) and pulled the Suburban out with my bare hands (just kidding).. I got in.. rocked it a little and drove the sucker out.  #1 informed me her father had slid into a ditch down the road.  We loaded up the car and went down to pull him out… (This is where I realized I forgot my camera.. and left #4 (my 6 year old) in charge of a sleeping #3 and #5)  I sent #1 back to the house where she woke up #3 (to take care of her younger siblings) and brought my camera down to me.

Here we have The Man’s car firmly lodged in the ditch.

Here is my Suburban.. I’m pointing out the Chevrolet emblem in

hopes GM will pay me a little advertising dollars or buy gift me a new

2010 Yukon Denali (white) with all the bells and whistles.. including

those little TV’s in the headrests. The man says I don’t need the TV’s..

But have you ever been to Chuck E Cheese on a Friday night?  That’s what it’s

like to ride in a car with my children.

Before we could get his car pulled out, our new neighbor down the road

makes an appearance (guy with the pink arrow over his head).  He’ll

be moving in to the house in January.  His truck doesn’t have 4-wheel drive..

I secretly wish him luck getting around on our roads..  Good news.. he

has kids my boys ages.. bad news.. he has kids my boys ages..

We pulled The Man’s car out of the ditch.. and he went on his way to work.

Who doesn’t love a picture of a good looking dog…

Have I ever introduced you to my dog?  If not..

This is Porky.. as in “the Pig”.  He loves long walks in the

snow, table scraps, cat food and freaking out of the

mail lady. (Bad Dog)

How sweet.  #1 and her dog..

Taken from my front door.. It looks so peaceful..until

you come inside.

Dreaming of Summer.. in the middle of a Deep Freeze

I'm FREEZING.. It's cold no matter what I'm doing.. or where I am.

I used to live where it was warm, and on days like today I wonder why I'm not back in a warmer climate! I've lived in Southern California for a while and Clearwater Florida for a couple of years too. If I could get The Man to move there… I would do it in a heartbeat. I'm not sure even a high paying, cush-ie job could make him move from his land. He likes living out in the country too much. We all know there isn't any "land" in southern California.. and Florida I would only want to live near the ocean… no land there really either.

So as I freeze.. (and maybe you are cold too..) here are some pictures of summer to warm you up.

The Man tells me these are a nuisance, and not a flower. I

think the thistle is beautiful. It always makes me a little sad to

see him spray them.

Here is a perfect rose from my garden this summer.

I can almost smell it..

If this photo doesn't say summer, I don't know what does.

Here are 3 of my 5 grubby children in their new swimsuits. (from last

summer) I remember a photo of my mother in a swimsuit

out in the middle of deep snow. I wonder if I could get these

monkey's to do that.. I know which one would do it.. Can you guess?

(here's a hint.. they are not pictured)
