Oh, and the days it wasn't raining the last couple weeks also meant thawing out the ice on the truck windows just to head out in the morning.

Well, I just need some SUN!

Winter in Wisconsin is mostly Grey. Except afer a fresh snow when the trees are covered. It looks like a Charles Dickens picture! (Sooo pretty)

I would not trade fall for "another day in paradise". Do you ever take 80 degrees and sunny for granted?? LOL

Spring is here! The oak trees have pollen blowing like crazy (my blue car is now green with the coat of yellow pollen on it)and the bees are everywhere. I am not afraid of them but, some of the ladies at the salon are and it is funny to see them run... Not so funny about the pollen though.. I have been downing benedryl all day.

I'm getting a case of cabin fever. The days are longer, sunnier, and it's still cold! (Colder with the wind)

We have a great little town in WI full of outdoor and Indoor water parks. The indoor parks are the best. About the size of a football dome with pools, giant slides, and tropical drinks for the hot-tub! It is sooo cool to sit in a hot-tub and look out the window to see snow!

I think my tax returns are burning a hole in my pocket!

AngiesMom, I'm so glad for you!

I do agree that some things are more important in life, but if you ever have a chance to head west, it is really fun.

P.S. I love the way you have the count-down to your divorce!

Its been 2 years coming and I'm so close now! I keep saying I'm going out on the 17th to celebrate but don't have anyone to celebrate with the guys live in other states and we can't get together until the summer *sigh* Oh well ...

Anyway, I'm very excited but I'm skeered too...not sure if that makes sense. He's a jerk -- abusive in every way you can imagine but it's still hard to realize I made such a misjudgment in character and wasted so much of my life.

Shoot me LOL there I go again!!!

I completely understand. Be careful the next time around. I traded one who was physically abusive, for one that was controlling and emotionally abusive. His comment to me was, at least I never hit you.

I booted him out 2 mos ago after 15 years.
