Life from left field, by Gross Gertie

Way to go Giants! Not that I cared either way, but I really expected the Patriots to take it, again. I can't help but think Tom Brady's little baby face is adorable, though.

Yesterday was an okay day. considering. And there is alot to consider. But we survived it, with cleaning, and a little cooking, and then of course, the game. I didn't really watch, I was either on the computer or daydreaming of better days, or even sleeping for a while, until my phone rang. My mind feels like it has a two ton weight on it, a black cloud of gloom hovering over it, and I'm ready for that to go away. Our predicted rain turned out to be another six inches of snow, and in just checking my email I was thrilled to learn that we are in the path of another major snowstorm, to begin tomorrow morning. (That was sarcasm, just in case you don't know how much I love winter.) I have just about had it with the weather this year, I have either been tromping around in snow up to my ass, (and let me tell you, that's a long way), or having to wear my long underwear under my clothes, inside at work, just to keep from turning to a block of ice. Common sense and nearly 48 years of living tells me that this winter will pass soon, but the rest of me is beginning to wonder.

I'm dreading today and tomorrow. I am asking that each of you pray for Janelle, that it will go as smoothly as possible, with no issues. She has a job to do, a mission to get accomplished, and that in itself is more than she can bear. We don't need anything coming out of left field, there has been enough of the "life from left field" for awhile now. Hey, that sounds like the new name for my blog. I think I might like it...and to quote a commentor from the past few days, I think I should rename myself Gross Gertie. It seems to fit my mood, my life, the way I feel about everything. The comment came from a funny story about a chicken that had lost it's feathers, and seriously, that really does about sum me up lately. Ah well, just a bit of humor being thrown in on a day that really doesn't deserve any.

I hope that all of you have as good a Monday as possible. I would give anything if this was going to be a regular Monday for me, one where I could moan and groan about having to get back to work...In any event, have a happy day. Later.

You, Janelle, and your family have been in my prayers and will continute to be. I hurt for you all. While the situation was different I do know the emptiness and grief that you feel.

Six inches of snow, yuk. We've only gotten snow once here, three inches, and it's gone now. Winters are mild here and I like it like that.

First visit, just looking around some.

Ha !!! I snitched a copy of the icy cold beer award.

I've never posted awards others have given me. They were for thinking or humor.

But no one has ever given me a bat shit crazy award, maybe I would post it.
