Snow and Nose

 Well, it snowed a freakin boatload here yesterday and last night.  This delighted everyone.  I am fine with not being able to go to the gym, with bonus lying on the couch, nose in book.  My Son is always up for missing a day at school. 

 My Daughter scampered to CNN with glee because the more senior members of the newsroom have kids and therefore are at home coping with school closings.  This leaves her free to do jobs way above her pay grade. She is pretty high on work anyway - last week Stevie Wonder was in the bureau and he played and sang on set - so she was one of 10 people serenaded.  I was *dying* of evny.  Stevie Wonder is the music of my youth. 

Mr. W likes snow and was uber cheerful, shoveling the driveway.  He brought me coffee and the newspaper in bed.  Talk about a sexy guy….

 Snow days always feel like time off from real life.

++++++ 

In News of my Nose - My sinus surgery is sked for Monday March 9th.  I’ve done the rounds of doctors, met the surgeon and surgical nurses.  Both of my arms are covered with bruises from various blood drawls.  I’m ready to get this done – both physically and mentally.  I’ll be so much healthier on the other side.

 It never fails though – that everything important always happens on the same day.  My Son won first place in a county wide ‘dangers of underage drinking’ PSA.  He’s thrilled – mostly because of the $1,000 prize.  Naturally, the awards ceremony is the same day and time as my surgery.  Le sigh.  I’ll take myself to surgery; Mr. W will come after the proper amount of applause for our Son.  It’ll be a long day – the surgery is supposed to take several hours and then I have recovery – another few hours. 

 I’ll look very attractive with my face packed with wadding the first week.  I should have black eyes and a drain in my nose.  Whoo hoo!!  Still, once I recover, I can finally come off antibiotics and be able to breathe.  Plus – I should be several pounds lighter as I won’t be eating solid food for a few weeks.  Bonus!!

 See y’all on the other side!
