I'm so far behind!


So last weekend, we had a big snowstorm and received a ton of snow. That meant I couldn't drive around the city and get my errands done. We spent all our time snow shoveling (me) and snow blowing (My Rare One).

Then I was sick at home with the flu almost all last week. So again, needless to say, nothing got done on my "to do list."

I got a little bit caught up this weekend but nowhere near enough. Plus we got a bunch more snow. *shakes fist at Old Man Winter and collapses, sobbing, into a huge snowbank*

What, I hear you asking, does all this whining mean? Alas, it means that blogging must take a back seat this week to everything else which needs to be done. So I don't expect to post very much until next week.

Just FYI.

BugginWord said...

Obviously I need to slow down because at first read I thought you'd spent the whole week blowing your rare one. Which would pretty much cover most of my to do list. But I think I get it now. Ish. Where's my caffeine?

Lyn said...

Feel better soon, Debra and keep warm :-)

Magaly Guerrero said...

Take your time babe! And bundle up so you won't get sick again. Our snow is melting, but we are getting more (not as much as you). I haven't move my car for a couple of weeks.

laughingwolf said...

hire some peons, who like snow, to do your errands! ;) lol

Suzie Ridler said...

I'm shaking my first at him too! It's -12C here and I'm stuck inside again. I'm sorry to hear you also haven't been feeling well, that sucks! Just rest, take care of yourself my friend. Your health is more important than anything else.

Wendy said...

Of course you need to take care of yourself FIRST and foremost Debra! I mean who the heck has the energy to blog when they're feeling like crap, except maybe for "Ms. Martha S." but I'm highly suspect of her. Get lots of snuggles from HRH and sending you blessings.

What a snowy winter we all seem to be having. We're in for a bit more, but then it will warm up and change to rain. Going to make for some sloppy walking conditions. Glad you are feeling better, but make sure you take good care of yourself. The flu takes awhile to go away.

I'm beginning to get this empty feeling in my heart

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

All the "to-do's" and weather stuff and etc.... But the good part is that you must be over the flu! Now that is something to say Hooooray! to. :-)

Hugs & ♥'s...
'Cause Valentine Day is coming!

Every day the weather network taunts us with promises of it being around the 0-degree mark "tomorrow". And every "tomorrow" it's still -24 ("feels like -39"). Needless to say, there is no food in *my* fridge, so fare thee well out there, brave neighbour!

Jim said...

Glad you have your priorities straight, Debra! Get that list taken care of and see you soon.

Dark Mother said...

I hope you feel better soon and don't stress over the list...making lists is on my list of things I do not allow myself to do ; )

Angel-Star said...

peace and health to you, debra

I always think it works much better when your 'to do' list reads:
1. wake up
2. Get out of bed
3. Eat breakfast
etc etc
You'll be amazed at how satisfying it is to cross it all off ;)

knitwit said...

Good luck getting everything on your list checked off. I'll still be here when you make it back to blogging!!
Hope you're feeling better. Flu is miserable!

Having stuck my head above the workpile for the moment I thought I'd take a wander down the bloggers hall. Sorry to hear things are all over the place, hope things get better soon.

I feel you...I can so relate...and I challenge you to compare the measurement of YOUR To Do list to mine...

Sandra said...

Doesn't seem to be stopping any of us from coming by and seeing what you're up though.
As for the snow slowing you down, you live in Canada! Come on! That's no excuse.
Looking forward to having you back even if you are a mild wuss.

Blueberry said...

Put "get some rest," "stop worrying" and "feel better" on your checklist... right at the top.

Mz.Elle said...

I love it here..but this snow is making me dream of places where people walk dogs on the beach where it is +15C.

sophie...^5 said...

Holly Ruggiero said...

Sex, Drugs & Bacon Sandwiches may have something there. However, I can truly understand your situation . . . snow, flu, errands, and the return to work . . . no time for fun!

LauraX said...

mistress maddie said...

Rue said...

Hope you are digging out alright. You did move to Edmonton? I'll save my comments on that...

Hope you are finding some rest in there somewhere too!
