STILL snowing!!! ARGH!

As you can see in the pictures (taken at 5:00pm), it's still snowing. We've gotten between 14-16 inches so far, with another 2-4" to come. That's my hand against the snow - I have an 8" span!!

Three hours later......

....yup, only THREE HOURS later....and it's still coming down! Compare this to the previous picture...

sigh.'s still SNOWING!!

This is out the back door exactly 13 hours after my last post....picture taken at 10:20 am.

And it's still snowing....

Not going NOWHERE today.

"They" are predicting anywhere from 8 to 20 inches of snow for the DC area by Sunday morning. It was supposed to start at Midnight tonight (Friday)...

It's 9:20pm and I just looked out side.

It's snowing.

It's December, and it's trying to snow.

So. The job is going well. I really like the people - my office mate is super nice, and my boss(es) are very personable, interesting, and easy to get along with. It's good to be employed again - though I'll be a bit more happy once I really get into working on things. I know, I know - it takes time. Don't worry, I'll be patient!!

Not feeling all that well today. Started this past Thursday I think, and it's building into a nasty cold thing...hopefully NOT any kind of a flu!! I didn't get a flu shot - never have in the past, and I went through a rather vicious flu back in June, so hopefully this is just a small 24-thingy....even though it's been more than 24 hours.

I've been able to keep up to date with my family since the funeral - that's one thing that's been a good outcome. Brother S and I have really started to firm up a friendship. It's really nice. And keeping track of my nephews via blogs and such has been way cool. I'm proud of S. and K. - they're really doing well for having not had the easiest of times over the past few years. And C. is gonna be a dad again! That'll be the SECOND grand-nephew/niece for me!! I feel old. But it's cool.

Oh! And I'm getting another tattoo!! In about 2 weeks I'll be getting a small tattoo on my left wrist - a ginkgo leaf - in remembrance of my dad. I'll post a picture!

So...not too much else...I'll be starting up Voice Over lessons sometime after the New Year - been told I have a lot of potential, and it'd be a super way to make extra money....which ties into:

OH! #2 - I've made a vow. I am going to be debt free (barring unforeseen circumstances, and not counting mortgages) by my 50th birthday. That's not TOO far away, so I've got a definite challenge, but I think with focus and determination I can do this. Hence the 2nd way to make income. I'll keep ya up to date.
