to break it down:
mix up with cars so the girls did not go to ballet
then took train home from chicago, problems with the train, had to remove a car, shove that car worth of people into 4 cars and left chicago 1 hr or so late
then 30 minutes after we left (late) the train HIT A FUCKING CAR ON THE TRACKS AND KILLED SOMEONE.

my weekend, sucky suck time

I really meant to post this Sunday, I really did. Life happened.
First off, I am sick. My cold is now bronchitis and as seems to happen once every 5-6 years I am reasonably sure that it is turning into bronchial pnumonia. My ribs ache from coughing, I can't sleep cause I cough all night and I think I am buying Kleenex stock since I have gone through so much kleenex blowing my nose and hacking up green goop. Andrea said she will speak at my funeral, thanks babe.

Saturday I had my twins meeting in Appleton. We had a fantastic room at Grazie's Italian Grill. I had two Mimosas and a good lunch. Saturday night/afternoon Dale and I shopped, ate @ Outback, stayed in the hotel and watched Die Hard on AMC (I had never seen it before-true story). All is well & I got Baskins Robbins to bring home (only in WI is it -25 windchill and the ice cream store is packed).

Sunday its fucking cold, like -35 to -50 wind chills, The car is mad at being outside all night, it's cold, it sucks. So we start off to drive home....
Here is what the freeway looked like:

it's crap....I'm nervous. Dale decides to get off the freeway and take 164 outta Slinger home....several badly plowed, unreasonably drifty and slippry miles later:

we are in the ditch. As you can see we hit the ONLY fucking pole (with no signage or anything on it) for at least 4 miles. Causing 2k + worth of damage to the car. The nice policeman showed up and no less than 3 more cars went into the ditch while slowing down to pass our accident safely.

Sunday PM: Dale's tonsils look like puffy spotted golfballs....
Monday AM: Dale has strep throat and the car can't be fixed till March and will take at least a week.
Tuesday: I have had it.

On a better note: look at how cute my kid is:

happy valentines day all!

i hope you did....

hopefully you did if you live in a super tuesday state, I hope you voted....I won't say who I hope you voted for (but I hope you didn't vote Huckabee or can have anyone else but those two guys) but get out and vote people. Voting is fun.

I'm trying to decide which Dem I really would prefer. It's a hard call.

14 inches of snow expected overnight and tomorrow.


Owen also ate some of Dale's aftershave gel. I had my 1st call to poison control (that was fun) He is OK and no biggie.

florida sucks

im just not willing to live with cockroaches as a daily event

had a discussion with a client today about moving to and living in florida. basically retirees that have moved to florida follow the same vein "i will never live in the cold again, florida is the bomb, yo."

ok, florida totally fucking sucks, here's why:

1. cockroaches, they live there, they never die, you can't kill them, you can spray to get rid of them, they are a fact of life. No thanks (my client said "you get used to them" no fucking thank you!)

2. Its a big state, it takes forever to drive over it (see disasterous, yeah we just got in to the state...oh crap its gonna take 8 hours to get from here to naples, crap...)

3. Its fucking hot, all the g'damn time. Heat is awful.

4. It's filled with OLD ass people. Who drive slow, cause traffic jams, and are all the average age of 80. When I hit 80 just shoot me. I never want to be those people. The traffic is like the loop on chicago, all day, every day, all the time.

5. The state is a cesspool of all that is evil. Go to see all the headlines with the florida tag: the grandma with cocaine in her bra? florida, City evicts sex offenders living under bridge because they couldn't find housing that wasn't 2500 feet away from schools: florida, losing kids in the foster system, florida, bad educational system: florida...the list goes on and on

6. disneyland. is-total-crap. and over priced and read a carl hiaasen and get the scoop.

7. Ricky Williams.

8. ONe of the most debtor friendly states "your mom called, she wants to enable you even more to be a drain on society."

9. trailer parks outnumber the cockroaches

10. hurricanes. you cant even get insured there.

man i hate florida.
