My Stream Overfloweth

My feet are freezing. My slippers and my socks got wet which caused the extra freeziness of my feet.

God Damn Snow.

It’s still snowing. It’s been snowing steadily since before Noon. It looks like it’s going to keep snowing pretty steadily for quite some time. Maybe for days. I hope not for weeks. Unless it gets it all out of its system before TW’s mom heads to Denver.

I’m looking forward to that.

I’m looking forward to our mini vacation to Door County, too. I don’t care if there’s not a damn thing to do except drink coffee in a little coffee shop and wander around a strange small town library and trudge through snow along the shore of the bay or the lake.

I don’t care. I just need a damn vacation.

If I was brave, I’d leave my computer at home. But I’m not brave at all, so I’m going to take it. Which isn’t so much brave as it is smart, since TW will have to work while we’re on vacation. Damn contractor jobs. Damn tax payments and hospital bills. Damn the expenses we’re going to face over the next three years.

Because yea, I’ve really started to think about what happens 3 years and a few months from now. Where are we going to move? I’m totally looking forward to the leaving part but the figuring out what comes next and where — and how the hell much is that going to cost, recognizing just how much it cost to get us here and get TW’s mom here and TW’s sister here and then to do it all again in the other direction.

Holy hell.

My feet are freezing, I need to go dig around for a few pairs of socks.

    Um, so why doesn’t ONE of you take a computer so TW can work and then you could, oh, I don’t know… read a book?

    ^^^^^^ that sort of sounds like a wee bit o’ heaven to me. Maybe a lot of heaven. Moving? California is nice, the bay area especially. The BlogHer main office is only 40 minutes away (well, a lot more in traffic…god damn bay area traffic). It isn’t cold here today, not at all.

    You can head down here or just stay n Chicagoland. Or is there a reason, besides the snow, you have to move?

  5. Jenna says:

    You can move to Ohio. It’s cheap here. :)

    You could always move to Edmonton but that would defeat the purpose of the damn cold and snow. I also have to agree with Karen – you are going to be wandering around a dusty old library I am sure you could accidentally forget the lap top at home.
