So Jehova's Witnesses or whatever other fools do the door to door thing are sending children with no adults now? Two kids, no older than 10, rang my doorbell. This bothers me for two reason:

1)Holy ****, people. How do you know your children aren't knocking on the door of a pedophile or serial killer?

2)I have to go against my instincts and not tell them to **** off. I'm mean, but I'm not that mean.

So true. We don't even have that much snow (well, depending on where you are) but I am sure every grocery store in this county is out of all those items. Especially after 5 days with snow in the forecast.

I am set on food. I need entertainment and things to play with.

I get a kick out of how if you click on someone's profile through the app, it will first say that said user has been banned. I'm sure it has served to both momentarily enrage and give false hope.

I know, I know. I was thinking that, too. I always do my shopping today or tomorrow. The good news, we have toilet paper. Even though I suck at it, I can make bread. And I get milk from a farm so no worries there. It's just everything else we need.

You might get to wear your boots!!

I feel terrible for those dealing with the blizzard type conditions, for ever now. I thought we would all go crazy during we winters 3 & 4 years ago. My parents had to wait 2 weeks to be able to make it out of their house, with chains on the truck tires. The snow was too deep to make contact with the road. I spent more time in hotels and relatives houses, so I could get to work, than I did at home. It gets exhausting.

I better check my poor, neglected snow boots to see if they've dry-rotted from years of sitting in the closet AND to make sure there aren't any "critters" playing house in them.

Mr. B just told me that when he went outside this morning to do some tilling, he picked up his work shoes (which he keeps in the garage and hasn't had on since fall) and shook them, and a bunch of seed shells and mouse poop fell out! He's skeered

Our poor weather people are saying an "early call 2-6 inches". Not sure about yours.

Well, I feel cheated. I just checked, and my forecast says rain mixed with snow and a high of 40, so I seriously doubt we'll get anything here. We'll set up in your neck of the woods. Bring your longjohns.

Boo, for you. I was checking and saw it said rain, I was hoping I was wrong. Maybe it will change.

Yep. Head on over. We only have one grocery store. WE CAN GET RICH!!!

I was never into Mr. Rogers, but this, ugh the tears:

Quote:
I don’t mean to dishonor the other stories here. But there is one I wanted to add.

A good portion of my pro-bono work is defending abused children. It’s a cause close to my heart. In the course of my work I met a man who was an adult survivor. You wouldn’t have known it looking at him. He was this gigantic Polynesian guy. Wild curly hair. I think of him every time I see Khal Drogo on GoT. He was counseling some of the little kids, and doing a fantastic job of it.

I visited his home to get his opinion on something and I noticed a little toy on his desk. It was Trolley. Naturally curious, I asked him about it.

This is what he told me:

“The most dangerous time for me was in the afternoon when my mother got tired and irritable. Like clockwork. Now, she liked to beat me in discreet places so my father wouldn’t see the bruises. That particular day she went for the legs. Not uncommon for her. I was knocked down and couldn’t get back up. Also not uncommon. She gave me one last kick, the one I had come to learn meant ‘I’m done now’. Then she left me there upstairs, face in the carpet, alone. I tried to get up, but couldn’t. So I dragged myself, arm over arm, to the television, climbed up the tv cabinet and turned on the tv.

“And there was Mr. Rogers. It was the end of the show and he was having a quiet, calm conversation with those hundreds of kids. In that moment, he seemed to look me in the eye when he said ‘And I like you just for being you’. In that moment, it was like he was reaching across time and space to say these words to me when I needed them most.

“It was like the hand of god, if you’re into that kind of thing. It hit me in the soul. I was a miserable little kid. I was sure I was a horrible person. I was sure I deserved every last moment of abuse, every blow, every bad name. I was sure I earned it, sure I didn’t deserve better. I *knew* all of these things … until that moment. If this man, who I hadn’t even met, liked me just for being me, then I couldn’t be all bad. Then maybe someone could love me, even if it wasn’t my mom.

“It gave me hope. If that nice man liked me, then I wasn’t a monster. I was worth fighting for. From that day on, his words were like a secret fortress in my heart. No matter how broken I was, no matter how much it hurt or what was done to me, I could remember his words, get back on my feet, and go on for another day.

“That’s why I keep Trolley there. To remind me that, no matter how terrible things look, someone who had never met me liked me just for being me, and that makes even the worst day worth it to me. I know how stupid it sounds, but Mr. Rogers saved my life.”

The next time I saw him, he was talking to one of my little clients. When they were done with their session, he helped her out of her chair, took both of her hands, looked her in the eyes and said: “And remember, I like you just for being you.”

That, to me, is Mr. Rogers’ most powerful legacy. All of the little lives he changed and made better with simple and sincere words of love and kindness.

I always say nothing like company coming over to really get the house clean! We're on our way! (I'll at least bring dessert to make it not so bad. )

Guys, is there such a thing as a work day where people don't call off and I'm not expected to do all of their work plus my own? Because it's starting to feel like such a thing doesn't exist...
