BEING Old, Rusty & Calcified :-)

Sane people would have stayed home last night. Crazy people decided to to watch a hockey game of my 2nd favourite team :-) The team lost, rightfully so, so it maybe wasn’t really worth it. Usually I’m the designated driver, but I declined to drive in this weather and luckily Bro1 had to drive himself anyway and could take Bro2 and Bro3, while I could take a ride with Bro1’s girlfriend (and her mom and another fan). So all was well… it took quite a while to get to the hockey rink, but we didn’t encounter any problems on the road. We just had to drive slower and more careful than usual.
I spent over an hour this morning with clearing the sidewalk and the path to the garbage bins from all the snow that fell in the night. A lot of snow and it hasn’t stopped since. I’ll probably shovel some more this afternoon before I head over to my mom’s for the family christmas. I already mentioned that I don’t mind the snow that much, I sort of like the adventurously aspect of it all. If it just wouldn’t happen durng my “snow duty week”, because it sucks to be out there early every morning during my vacation.

My Winter Wonderland

I’m most probably in the minority with saying this, but… I don’t mind the amount of snow we are getting this year. At least not yet *g*. But honestly, I don’t feel overly troubled by it. I guess, most probably because I’m used to not having to use a car, as I don’t own one. I cover most of my distances on foot or by train, sometimes by bus, but that not necessarily. I definitely get through my days and weeks without a car. Train services in the metro region haven’t been too messed up in the last few days, at least not on the lines I use.
The second reason, why the snow doesn’t bother me that much: I’m off work till January 4th. I haven’t planned a trip to anywhere during this time, I’m staying home and if the snow keeps up I’ll also be staying in and I don’t mind. I’ve got enough books and DVDs to keep me busy. Having two relaxing weeks was the plan in the first place. As long as electricity and the internet are working I’ll be fine :-)

On Friday I wrote down all the various things I want to take care of during my vacation, but I haven’t really started working on any item of that list. I might have to start with making a list with the things I want to get done tomorrow. Baby steps *g*
I started catching up with my TV shows, which I neglected over the last few weeks. I watched episode 8 of “Life Unexpected” and I’m not very much inclined to continue watching. I thought Kate was annoying for a long time now and now Lux is really pissing me off as well. She is such a selfish little bitch. Well, that was my thought at the end of the episode at least. Baze and Emma? Mmmh, not so sure what to think of this couple yet. I haven’t really gotten a big fan of Emma so far. I don’t mind her, but… well, I’ll put this show on the backburner for now.
