As a famous person once quoted I am “up to my armpits in alligators”! What I need is my own personal Steve Irwin… or does he just do crocodiles?

Regardless, it has been a busy two days and really, I have stuff that I could be doing than updating this scruffy little blog. But if i don't… how are you going to know how many Cadbury eggs I am up to?

After I got home… I sent Jen off to Louisville, KY for her workshop on Thursday. She'll have 3 more in the whole series and will go March, April, and May. So there will more crazy antics. Actually, it was very low-key and Ryan even slept from 8:30-6:30am! I ended up sweeping the hardwood floor and mopping with a vinegar/water mix while watching American Idol and Bones. In addition, I was doing laundry and dishes, plus cleaning downstairs. I am a multi-tasker. I had just time to complete the floor and downstairs by 11 or so and then I was done. I caught some of the 11 O'clock news and they kept showing… the snow, the snow.

And yes, we did get some snow. I ended up sleeping through part of Shawshank Remeption… right when Andy sticks it to “The Man” at the end and escapes. Oh well, I have seen it many times, so I know what happens… and now onto Thursday.

The roads were wet but not covered from the snow and UT never closes… neither does Knox county schools, but all the other counties did! Which is fine, because Eric had preschool and I took him there and off to work. I am doing a project were I have to call 70+ companies in rural counties in New York and get some information from them. The information is pretty general, but the don't like it when the hear Department of Labor… it skeers them! BOO! I actually think that most think I'm a chick over the phone… so it's a hell of a lot easier to get information that way. Let them imagine what I look like… HAHA!!!

So I did get a chance to run with Marty, even though he was late… which made me late… ahhhhh. No biggie though. I only made phone calls and no internet all afternoon. So, now I am trying to get my stuff together tonight for the big weekend ahead.
