Awaiting A Blizzard February 8, 2013

The media seems to think that every time there is snow coming we should all take cover and stock up on food for a month. This, however, is never the case. Usually when they predict 30 inches of snow we end up with about 3, and when they predict 3 inches, we get 30. We are never really prepared for a storm because of the inaccuracy of the weather man. So far, we should have about 6 inches, I’m looking out the window at a light dusting. Although, I am freezing my butt off…it’s about 3 degrees outside. So last I heard, we were getting 12-24 inches of snow between today and tomorrow. I’m sorry, that just seems like quite a wide range, don’t you think? Ridiculous. It really doesn’t make sense to me why they even bother to make predictions when they are never right, the range is so ridiculously wide that they really should be right, and they scare everybody into acting like crazy people and driving like morons. First thing, we live in Maine. We should all be used to driving in snow by now…Come on people, 10 mph with no ice and less than an inch of snow? Amazing. It is just shocking how people drive like scared babies when there is hardly any snow, but yet when it’s really awful out, people are driving like maniacs and passing, cutting people off, speeding, and slamming on their brakes. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! It is so annoying. Then, if I want to go to the grocery store and get things for dinner, or my weekly trip just happens to fall on a day there is a storm coming, it’s like a mad house. I mean really, people pushing and shoving, hitting, running into you, rude, hitting you with carts, I literally got shoved into a rack of clothes the other day and I was walking…clearly, not fast enough for this lady. I want to just walk around slapping everybody in the face.

I drove into work today, going my normal speed, it got increasingly snowy-er during the trip, and then all of a sudden it started getting better and better. It was very odd, but I did at one point get cut off, of course when it was bad out. Obviously they couldn’t wait for me to pass and pull out with no traffic for miles, they really needed to get in front of me and then slam on their brakes for no apparent reason at all. I’m so frustrated. In fact, it has stopped snowing since I began this post, which is even more frustrating…

I’m thinking I should go to the store and load up on food and beer for the weekend, just in case. If I do this, I will have succumbed to the peer pressure that is the blizzard. It’s unfortunate, but better safe than sorry, I guess. I believe I have just become a hypocrite of the worst kind…

 

Dog Rant. January 29, 2013

I’m not really a fan of ranting…actually, I won’t lie..I’m always up for a good bitchin’. Well I’m extra grumpy today and I owe it all to my two lovely dogs. We went to bed last night, and of course the dogs sleep in our bed, so we bring them in and there’s something weird happening with them. I’m not sure why, but they were like fighting and running around everywhere. Usually they go right to sleep and lave us alone. Not tonight! So after about an hour Andrew fell asleep and I had to keep whisper yelling at them, which obviously does no good. Then I got Kyller up on the bed and the brat kept biting me! What a rotten little doggie! So while Kyller is on the bed knawing on my hand like a friggin chew toy Riloh is down on the floor trying to eat the radiator. I don’t have a clue what that’s about but it was obnoxiously loud and clearly Riloh forgot her dog-etiquette. So rude! So after a couple of hours of this ridiculousness, I finally start to doze off into my delightful slumber and…CRASH!!! Riloh decides to attack the radiator like a maniac. This happened about ten more times before I jumped out of bed screaming and got my foot stuck in the blanket on the way out of the bed and face planted on the ground. 3am at this point and I was PISSED. Andrew woke up at this point and was not impressed. So I told him what was happening and he spanked them and they got right in bed and went to sleep. Of course not without me having a mild meltdown of crying and yelling…but it wouldn’t be right without it! So I finally get back into bed ready to get some sleep and Riloh decides she wants to lick my leg over, and over, and over again. I’m not sure when she stopped or if she even did because I finally fell asleep around 4am. Needless today, we DID NOT have our morning routine doggie snuggle party this morning.

I’ve come to the conclusion that there must be mice in the radiator…My cat, Charlie, has had her face up against it ALL DAY!

Clearly Riloh is exhausted from a long night…

Kyller knows I’m talking about her because she’s sitting next to me in the chair and won’t stop staring at me…
