    i shoveled snow today.

    i shoveled snow today. i shoveled a lot of snow today. i think the actual amount was a fuckton. it definitely felt like that much. before you say “yea, ok. and?” and click off, i have to explain. first of all – i loooooaaaaaatheeeeeeee the snow. second – we, in the new york tri -state area, just experienced a record setting blizzard. my area got about 15 inches, which i will admit, we’ve had worse. other areas got upwards of almost 3 feet. *gaaaaaag* however, 15 inches is over a foot and i don’t cope well with this. so why am i writing a whole post about me shoveling and…

    finalist squared.

    According to Facebook, it’s been 10 days since I’ve last posted. TEN DAYS. I really don’t know what’s wrong with me or where my motivation went. I thought I was hitting a stride, and then, mid-leap I hit a wall. HARD. Anyway, not to make any empty promises, I’m going to get myself back on track, hopefully sooner rather than later. I just wanted to hop on here and share with you guys some good news. Remember last year when I entered that photo contest and was picked as a finalist? Well, I entered again, and for the second time in a row, I was named a finalist! I submitted two photos…

    snow my God! a weekend recap

    Monday, we meet again. I was on the fence about doing a weekend recap since all I did was wait for the snow, watch the snow, and then wish the snow would go away. But, for the sake of posterity, I decided to do one anyway. Friday I had plans to go to Jessica’s, but Jonas had other ideas. The storm was supposed to start at 3 am Saturday morning. Then, while I was at the Post Office, I made some new friends who told me that they heard it was now supposed to begin between 12 and 2 am. Whatever, I’ll be home in plenty of time either way.…

    kids these days

    I saw this video floating around Facebook recently. Take a look and then we’ll discuss. Ok, first of all – this was over a cellphone. A CELLPHONE. When I was his age, I had a pre-paid cellphone. It didn’t text, it had actual buttons, the screen was green and black and it had monophonic ringtones. It did, however, have a snazzy light up antenna (oh! that too! an antenna! do kids these days even know what that is?) that lit up when the phone rang. It was quite exciting. Second, where does this kid come off? He obviously wasn’t supposed to have his cellphone in class/school. He was probably using…

    Putting myself out there

    So it’s been almost a month. I know, I’m sorry. I wish I had a good excuse but I don’t. I just wasn’t feeling it. I wasn’t inspired. I can’t promise that things will change from here on out but I can try. And that’s what counts. In an effort to make myself believe that when I am doing what I love it shows in the results I sat down at my computer and chose some photos to donate to the silent auction being held at work. In case you’re wondering, we hold a silent auction every year to raise money to benefit the school’s student book scholarship. Anyway, I wanted to…
