Well, we never did make it to Sam's Club. We went to my parents' first, and I shoveled for over an hour. Stud had come with me, but one of my parents' shovels was broken, so I sent him back to our house to get our shovel. By the time he came back, I was almost finished. He took care of the back driveway while I did the sidewalk in front of my parents' and both of their neighbors. The snow was still coming down pretty hard, so by the time we finished, it needed to be done again. I'm contemplating going back later. Or, I'll just go in the morning. We'll see.
I made another goofy ass video for Suz. Man, I wish I knew how to dub over my annoying voice!!
Check this out. As I was shoveling, a couple of my parents' neighbors went by on cross country skis!
After we shoveled at my parents' driveway, we were going to head to Sam's Club. But then, instead, we went to Bestest Friend's house, and shoveled there, too. I figured it would be a nice surprise for her when she got home from her LONG day of hell at work. (Just to refresh your memory, she's also a CPS teacher!) Luckily her driveway is much smaller than my parents' and Stud helped, so it only took us about 35 minutes. THEN we were going to go to Sam's Club, but as we were getting in the car, Magnum called to say he was on his way to the house to shovel. I decided to go back to the house so the three of us could shovel together, and just knock it out. It was nice to have some help, and we finished in about a half hour.
By then, I was wiped. So, needless to say, I never made it to Sam's Club. Guess I'm going to have to dig around the freezer and pantry and see what I can scrape together for dinner. For once I'm not feeling guilty about not making it to the gym, since I
shoveled for over 2 hours today. I know I'll be feeling that later in
my back. Maybe after dinner I'll fill the tub and take a long, hot soak.
Oh, and just as I started shoveling at home, Bestest Friend called. I had been talking to her on the phone while I drove from her house to mine, but didn't tell her we shoveled. I was laughing to myself as she told me how she was going to leave earlier than usual (most nights she stays at school until 6 or 6:30!) because she didn't want to drive in the storm, and besides, she had to shovel when she got home, and she was already tired from her long day. Tee hee!! About 2 minutes after we hung up, my phone rang. "DID YOU SHOVEL AT MY HOUSE?!" I swear she sounded on the verge of tears! She's so cute. I hope she's already sitting with her feet up, relaxing.
Ok, NOW I'm off to make dinner!
