Snow! and am I nuts?

2010 has come in with a vengeance! It’s been snowing here all day and doesn’t show signs of letting up. The snow is nearly up to the windows and I can’t see the picnic table anymore! Super Genius shoveled his way out to the animals twice today to feed and water them and both times the tracks were covered before he got back in the door!

We’ve spent the day watching movies, (Iron Will & White Fang, love them, yes I cried at both!) reading (The Heretic’s Daughter, very good!) and playing video games! Yesterday we went to a friend’s house for dinner (Yummy BBQ pork sandwiches) and played a few games, Five Crowns was a new card game Santa brought my daughter, it was fun and quick, and a game of SPOONS which I’d never heard of before but was really lively (and a bit dangerous!)

I was bored so videoed the snow for you! Don’t mind Super Genius in the background talking to Rocky (who we’re dog sitting) and our Ginger, he’s using his doggy voice, lol, don’t tell him you heard it :) You can also hear that darn bird squawking int he background, Kooky’s an almost 10 year old cockatiel and a big PITA! We love him though. And of course Pie’s whining about how she doesn’t have any Wii games, didn’t she just get 2 for Christmas?

Super Genius also decided to tell me today that we might be moving soon, very soon. WTH! I look out the window and I think he’s insane, I want to hibernate not move! His bum is going to be out there digging up my frozen plants because I’m not leaving them behind! No way am I leaving my great grandma’s double tiger lilies, or my dad’s seven sister’s rose bush or the peonies, hostas, coneflowers, mint, clematis, Japanese & Asiatic lilies, and others I can’t even think of with all that snow on top of them. We’re not forgetting to take my rocks ether, yep you heard me right, “MY ROCKS”! I brought them with me from our old house and I’m taking them with me when I leave! Darn it! I have posts and fence and chicken stuff out back that will need to be unburied. Cages, stakes and not to mention the chicken coop! How in the world are we going to put up a new chicken yard at the new place when the ground is rfozen?? GGrrr…. Oh good grief, I wish it was spring! Boxes! crap, I need lots of boxes, I hate boxes, I hate packing! I’ve only had to move once since we’ve been together and it’s definitely NOT something I enjoy doing, let alone in January in Northwestern Pennsylvania! In fact I’d rank it as my top hated thing ever! Okay I’m done being dramatic. How about another picture of the snow to show you why I’m complaining so!

That would be Super Genius giving his brother’s car a push. What in the world possessed him to venture out in this weather is beyond me. Am I crazy for just wanting to curl up and stay warm?
