When it pours

Ok, so it's supposed to snow again this weekend and I simply must admit ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!!

Sorry. So I apparently needed to threaten this area of NY w/ my mom coming to keep me company while I job hunt. The next day I get a 2 day temp assignment, who now wants to try to hire me part time. I have two interviews tomorrow - one at a neurologist doing exactly (from the website description of the job) what I did before, one at a vet office (TOTALLY want this one) and one on Monday w/ a staffing agency for a clerical job. I can't decide if I really want a full-time job or not, my husband isn't in favor of it unless they pay well so we'll see. :-) All are a good 40 mins from home but honestly there's not a DARN THING here in this town. Awesome for walking/riding in, bad for job-hunting.

Updates to follow!

Random pics to start your day...

So Holly and I got another tour of the jobsite - it's a mess! Goes from several inch thick mud to 6 inches of snow -- ick. But lots of big impressive equipment - transformers bigger than my fridge and 500 pound batteries!

I love the black and white pics! The whole river was frozen except for a tiny area where the horseshoe falls (canadian side) pound down.

Hi Holly! Quit hiding! :-)

It was really cold w/ the mist blowing off the falls but so pretty w/ the ice just caked inches thick on everything in sight.

More pics from the Frozen North

Well we made a trip up to take some pics for ya'll of the frozen falls and river....makes me shiver again just to look at them!

Happy Cheat Day to me, Happy Cheat Day to me...Oh sorry. Enjoying my cranberry orange scone I made this morning! :-) Have to have something to get me over my jealousy of my sister's ski trip! Hopefully my protein powder will come in today so I can make my bannana bread and then some homemade bread this weekend, since my husband is supposed to work all weekend. :-(

I hate cold. Cold air, most specifically, obviously I prefer my ice cream cold etc. A week ago it's nice and warm, I get to go for a run w/ my husband and really work my body without bothering my lungs. Today I had to quit every 1/2 mile or so to wheeze. And I do mean wheeze - I sounded like I was sucking air thru a kazoo. (I haven't seen a kazoo in a long time. Do they not make those anymore?) Anyway, so here's hoping our next job is somewhere warm......

So my honey got bored after his homework was done yesterday.... He hadn't had a full day off in quite awhile and didn't know what to do w/ all his extra time! So, he played w/ one of his Christmas presents (thanks mom!). So far I have in my zoo, a giraffe (I love the tiny tail) and a lion. Name suggestions?

Sniff sniff

So, before my migraine pills kick in I'll try to get this typed. If I start rambling I have a good excuse.
We just got back from our job conference, it was better than previous years. Hands-on workshops for the guys, and lots of free time for me to see family (yay!). My husband got lots of compliments on his new suit, particularly the orange paisley tie, however his neck is again raw from wearing a collared shirt for 2 days straight. Poor thing.
We still have monster icicles on our back porch. It was to get up to 36 today so they're fatter and shorter (odd, kind of how I feel after 2 days in 4 inch heels!) Ouch!
I met an interesting individual on my trip. Her name (for now) shall be "Gray Cat" (yes Kt I know I'm copying). She is at the Gardner Humane Society, and wants to move to NY. She loves to purr, be held, stand on your shoulder and talk to you. She is not solid gray but very pretty and only about 6m old. Unfortunately the standard answer applied and so when GC asked where I was today Kt had to tell her I'd gone back to NY w/o her. Kt said a tiny tear slid down her furry little cheek. I'd believe it more if Kt said GC whacked her with her paw but since I'm not there I'll take Kt's word for it.
