    Oy, Vey!

    Well, several things have happened here this weekend.

    First, Friday was a snow day. We got a, ready yourself, good 6 inches! And yes, school was canceled. What's a mom to do? I knew I couldn't deal with 3 kids fighting all day and all weekend too, so we headed to Hannah Montana's new movie. Quite cute. Let's just hope she doesn't turn all White Trashy-fab like her Britney Spears counterpart. But for $15 a ticket, I would have liked a little more. Maybe a margarita at least? But I digress. After successfully finding our way there (and back, Mom), I decided it was time to invest in a new snow blower. Ah, the power that is a gas engine! Now we have the cleanest driveway on the block.

    Saturday brought Sean cleaning out the garage. All day. Literally. He was out there from 9AM until 6:30 PM when I made him take us to dinner. I was craving Tacos El Norte, what can I say. But thanks to his efforts, I can now park in the garage that has an opener. No more prehistoric lifting of the garage door for me! Oh, we also pushed, yes pushed, the '49 chevy into the third car garage. That is one heavy effin truck. But now it has a home, so we're happy.

    Sunday began as any normal day. Late for church, screaming kids, blah blah blah. But then I noticed Gretta had a fever. Uh oh. And Emma's eyes wouldn't stop watering, and she was coughing like a chain smoker. I knew I was in for it.

    So Monday brought a visit to our new Pediatrician, who is darling, thank goodness. G has an ear infection, and Emma just has a cold. But after 3 kids, I thought I'd missed out on the joy that is ear infections. This is the first one for us. Ever. And the poor girl is miserable. Although I must say, I enjoy the cuddling that I normally don't get. Baby cuddling, that is. Don't get any ideas, Sugar Daddy.

    And that brings us to today. Tuesday. Foggy, eerie Tuesday. It seems as though this is the calm before the storm, as they're saying 8-10 inches of snow tonight. They're even talking about schools getting canceled again tomorrow. Oh joy. But wait, that means I get to use the Snow Blower. Yay! I think I need to give that puppy a name. Any ideas? Maybe something slightly perverted, because you know how I am....

    dirty names for a snowblower....

    I am racking my brains and will return with suggestions promptly.

    I'm sorry to hear your girls are sick. Hope they feel better.

    Hmmmm, dirty names for a snow blower. The only one I can think of is BJ.

    I'll let you figure that one out.

    Keli said...

    I was totally going with BJ. I guess dirty minds think alike! There's gotta be someone who can be more clever than that, though.

    Mamame La has a Nice Spanish Ring to it... ask Sean.

    Kelli said...

    We're sick at our house too. I think it's the crappy weather.
    Instead of a snowblower, you just need a neighbor with a four-wheeler and plow. We came home from church and it was done!

    amy k said...

    Forget the four-wheeler and plow....you need a Bobcat skidsteer. : )

    I know a good person with one of those.

    Keli said...

    Oh, trust me, I'm all about the heavy equipment. I'm certainly not mowing this big ass yard with a push mower! I want the riding mower thingy that has a snow plow you can attach to the front during the winter. Genius! But if any of you would like to drive your bobcats out here and plow for me, I would put you up for a night or two. I'm just puttin' that out there....

    OK so now where is the pic of sean's newly cleaned garage?

    As a sad note people quickly realize that it takes as much work to keep the garage clean as it does to keep the kitchen clean. I always get so dissappointed when I spen a whole day giving the garage a makeover only to see it morph back to its terrestial glory a week later.
