I have heard that the East Coast is looking down the barrel of the fourth Nor'Easter....
Sweet Mother Of Mercy..... :Q
A bit much, don't you think

Yeah, the DMV seems to have cleaned up their act quite a bit.
I once had one of the workers slap my papers on the counter
Then growl that I was ok to go.

Wanted to remind her that if we all didn't come in for a license
She'd be out of a job.
But I just sneered, grabbed my papers and stormed out.

We've got about an inch here, but further south of us they got hammered yesterday and, I assume, today as well. :roll: The weather man is saying another round is on it's way.

Calma, that's pretty awesome. You probably already have one of the "enhanced" licenses. PA was behind on that and people are being told that if you don't have a new license yet, you'll need a passport to fly domestic. My dad just got his updated license but the rest of us have to wait. It's not like we fly much.

Our Enhanced Licenses will only let us in and out of the country if we go by land or sea.
We need a passport to fly international or domestic.
We were going to get a passport
But Good Golly Miss Molly... the cost. :Q
Plus the time to get one would have been passed our leaving time

Another school shot up yesterday.
Hello, people! What's wrong with this picture?

Apparently he was mad at the girl...for breaking up with him? So the solution is to kill her? When did that even become a viable option?

I don't understand our world anymore...

In other news...two more people from out church have died. This is getting out of hand. :roll:

I was supposed to have a job interview today, but it was rescheduled to Friday. Hopefully the weather behaves...

Rob and I went to see Tomb Raider last night and we really liked it. It was nice having a different take than Angelina Jolie...this girl isn't built like her, and she gets the crap beat out of her pretty good (falling through a tree canopy is one example) and isn't an expert in fighting lilke Jolie's take...sometimes her victories are out of desperation. Over all, if they're going to keep up the series, I'm looking forward to it. :D

So... I take the dog to a nice park for a nice long walk today, and suddenly there are gobs of white stuff falling from the sky. ! ! !

We got one inch of new snow. :P

The dog had lots of fun anyhoo.

Tookies, I didn't know you got a dog! :hug:

Interview went well. She has to interview someone else and do paperwork, etc. but I think I got it. :)

Tomorrow the tooth comes out. Oh. Yay. But it needs done.

We went up to Binghamton yesterday to see my uncle and aunt. While there, Rob tracked down his mom's grave so he and I went on a little field trip. It's not far from their house. His mom died the day after he was born, and he was adopted by her sister and her husband. So he has two brothers in his adopted family, and his birth mom had two boys and a girl previous, and his birth father has several children. :)

I just got the call that I got the job. The federal level takes over now with background checks etc. so I have to watch for emails.

Good puppy! I'll have to go look at the pictures. :D

Today I have a big gap in my mouth and swelling. Yay. The drainage is making me a little ill, but I can handle it.

If you can take Fridays as well as Tuesdays,
That would be good.
If you find you don't have the time,
I can take a couple of them off your hands.
At least until we find someone who can take them over permanently.

Unfortunately, there will be snow tomorrow where I am.

I'm dreaming of a white Easter
Like all the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
And children listen
To hear bunnies in the snow...

Happy Easter, anyway.
