Well, it turns out I'm not going to the state capital to check out the Maine archives today. Mother Nature had other ideas, and is dumping heavy, wet snow on us at this very moment. We have about 6 inches, and it's still snowing now (at 6:30 AM). I think it's pretty, but it's going to be heavy shoveling, and not good for traveling. Since it started last night, it also caused the postponement of my bi-monthly 'Meet the Girls for Dinner' outing. Every other month (as best as we can manage with busy schedules) I meet my two best friends from college for dinner in Portland, which is centrally located for all of us. We get together and talk really fast and laugh our asses off. There's nothing like it in the attitude adjustment arena. If you could hear us, I think, (as long as you couldn't see us with our little wrinkles and expanded waistline) you'd think we were still those girls from college, draped over those silly couches in the dorm lounge, listening to Meatloaf and giggling over boys.
Anyway, we're re-scheduled for tonight, so let's hope the storm gets its bags packed and outta here soon so the crack road crew can do its magic before 5:00!
I'll have to put off my trip to the archives until next week, because the kids are racing again this weekend, and I have to get them packed and ready tomorrow.
Ah, the best-laid plans of mice and men...
Which reminds me of that book "Of Mice and Men" which has to be one of the most depressing of the Steinbeck books (which is saying a lot.)
Ok, I'm going to stop writing before this turns into stream-of-consciousness drivel that isn't even interesting to me! Have a great day everyone, and thanks for all the funny, witty and supportive comments. They totally make my day! Special shout-out to Kim-D, who commented twice yesterday - You make me happy! and to Andrew, who is one of the most quick-witted people who has ever lived.
