Winter storm advisory today, snowing now and we have to drive to Spokane to pick up our batteries! Oh boy!

Up on the scale today. I have not recorded it yet. Nuts and a little popcorn. I imagine its the sodium more than the nuts. I had one meal yesterday. A bowl of lentil curry soup and a taco salad. It will come back down.

Mom finally made it to her sisters house. She had the trip from the hot place though. Once she finally landed in California her shuttle service had screwed up and arrived at noon instead of of 1 the time she rescheduled them for after her flight was cancelled on Saturday. She was madder than a wet hen! Ended up having to lay another shuttle service $45 to get her to her sisters home. I'm glad she's safe and sound but not happy she had to deal with all that.

Time for me to get showered and dressed for our winter drive. Figures. The only day of significant snow is today. This ought to be interesting!

I will catch up with you all later. In the mean time I am grateful ....

For a good meal and a movie yesterday with DH
Knowing that what goes up will come back down.
Fitting into a pair of pants yesterday I have not been able to wear.
That I am not driving alone today to Spokane.
And life ... As my friend Keld always says ... Life is good!


:) happy week Moose! You are right and good to name it on your grateful list, what goes up will come back down. I'm chanting that at the gym today okay? lol

Glad you had a time with DH on the week-end and that mum arrived safe, what a trip, ot for the faint of heart, like your drive today. Hopefully will hear tomorrow that all went well. Hope that the snow isn't as bad as predicted.

We are on our way back. Snow has stopped for now. It has been an adventurous trip so far. Freezing ice on the windshield, frozen tailgate on he truck. Hope the wether hold till we get home! 
14 Jan 13 by member: madaboutmoose ....I've been there, done that .... I'm not sure I want to do it again. Many years ago I lived in very rural western North Dakota and we didn't get a lot of snow, but when it did storm it was dangerous because of wind and the isolation factor. On the road to Williston (85 miles) there was only one town that I would drive through and the farms/ranches were far a part ... and most of the time homes were not any place close to the main road. So if you had trouble, it was bad news. I'm leaving for a doctor's appointment in a few minutes wearing a light sweatshirt (as a jacket). I think I prefer this kind of winter versus yours. Be safe my friend!
