Now I kind of want it to snow so I can see what happens with the hot water. My tip is never pour hot water on a frozen car windscreen. Apparently they can crack.

It just freezes and then you have ice. It's a great way to make a path for sledding though - pull your sled through the snow a couple times to make a path, then pour hot water on it to smooth it out and make it icy and super fast!

Oh and actually, someone reacted like I was dumb when I said I did it so I figured cold weather people knew! And really it was my sidewalk and steps. There was ice on them, so I got a thing of hot water, the ice melted for a second and then froze over to be a nice sheet of ice. I forgot that the ground was cold enough to refreeze the water.

I think if we get severe icy weather this year I should take a trip to that cow manager one's house and pour it alongside the drivers side of her car then go hide behind a tree and watch.

I had no idea! I did know that if you throw a cup of hot water up in the air in the winter, it'll immediately turn into a big puff of vapour. It's still not even cold here though.

Today, I attempted to go for a run after about two months of unbridled laziness. Within ten minutes, I'd slipped in mud and cut my knee, which I assumed was fine but eventually I gave up after blood was running down my leg and I'd smeared it, and mud, all over my clothes.

Sigh.

I can't bring myself to go running after falling over on a treadmill and drawing blood.

I went to Pret a Manger instead and got a salad, and it was really nice! It was expensive, but had avovado, pine nuts, chickpeas, some kind of tabouleh type deal, on baby spinach with shredded carrots, beets, and cherry tomatoes. I think my body is now rejecting the vegetables though.

I heard something that sounded like someone had brought a puppy into the office, then I realized the sound was coming from me. Squealy guts!

I have an English paper to rewrite and I'm obviously doing a fine job of that. Oh man, leftovers? They seriously rock my world. I seem to have a good balance of leftovers and things I have to cook.

My ex-husband and I did this the first winter we lived in Spokane. It didn't turn into vapor, but sort of snow. Like the tiny, icy, needly kind of snow, not flaky nice snow.

^ Still! That's awesome. It is 59 degrees where I am. Apparently, winter is more of an idea than a season.

My weakness answer is honest: I am too sensitive. I just had a review and my area to improve upon was being sensitive, however I was also praised for being so sensitive in the same meeting. Performance reviews are so weird.

Ugh! Yes. The last interview I did asked that. All I could think was that I'd like to have a baby. I didn't mention that in the interview though. There was a lot of uh... Hmm...

I have a big box from my aunt waiting. She and my mom both opened their presents from each other early. Shoud I open or wait?

I'm waffling. I have no idea what's in a box that big since she sent it direct herself. Well, one thing is reportedly a nonvegan (silk) item, but I decided I'm ok with it since its a vintage item (40yr old) that has meant a lot to her that she wanted me to have. Family heirlooms of sort are cool. Only other thing I have that is close is my moms gold Celtic cross necklace.

Oh wow! That's a shift from what you said in the step-parent thread :) Vegan babies are superfuntimes :)

Having babies... I am not even divorced yet and I am aching badly for another. The guilt and shame of that being my foremost thought pretty much all the time is really weighing down on me. I was meant to be a 100% mom but I couldn't stay in my marriage just because of that. It is true punishment.

Ohman, most of my work is done for school. Just two days of finals. I can do this.

But. I have a forking work up tomorrow at 7, which is fine, except I have to leave between 4 and 4:30 to get there on time. So it's a 3:30 or 4 AM to 3 PM day tomorrow. Why

That interview was actually last year? Maybe? It was pretty random. I go through phases of wanting a baby and then being overwhelmed at the idea of being responsible for someone else. And then there's the complication of my own mom. She gave up custody of my brother when he was two and then did it again six years later when I was two (different fathers). I can help wondering if I'd bail, too, and that's not fair.

People keep having these sweet, happy, curious little babies though!

Then I remember that I can barely take care of myself.

The loose 5 year plan is to get Wilson home, pay off some debt, then re-evaluate.
