Another snowy Monday

I woke up to another cold and snowy Monday. The sun is not shining and the grey coldness is definitely not inspiring. It is rare for me to cook winter food this time of year but I am still cooking soups and stews because of the cold. Ugg. I want to open the windows and smell fresh grass and flowers!

I am going to cross-fit tonight. Otherwise I'll spend the day at home tidying up some odds and ends. I really need to get the taxes filed so maybe I'll work on that. 

What is everyone else up to today?

Karla, my mom has been sending me pictures of the snow (she's in the Midwest).  Can't say I miss it.  :)  

Today is my last Monday off for a while...  I'm doing laundry, waiting for the satellite guy to show up, hoping my landscaper shows up and doing a plyo workout I pulled from Oxygen magazine.

I haven't seen a March like this in the Midwest in a long time. Usually it's just cold and raining with warm days starting to mix in. Hopefully this weekend's storm was the last of this stuff!

I was very surprised a few weeks ago when my satellite company called to tell me that my receiver was sending signals that something was wrong with it and they wanted to come out and repair it. We never even noticed. They came out and put up a new receiver, gave us new remotes and set up our HD programming correctly. I was pretty impressed!

Wow, that's impressive service.  We ask for a service call only as a last resort because we hate paying for them to come fix their equipment that is malfunctioning.  My gym DVR had hard drive failure last week so we decided to switch companies.  DH and his brother have a process of switching providers every two years in order to get the best rate.  :)

I think my main PC is "hosed" because I can only get on here with my iPad.:( It's FREEZING here. Dd's college classes were cancelled today. I couldn't believe it! I am completely exhausted from my vacation, and I am now playing "catch-up" with work and personal matters. Calvin, take me away! Yoga is a godsend! I need to get back to training my pup and the therapy dog route, but I have just been so busy! Yes, I would like some cheese to go with my whine. Lol. Dh is crabby, trying to pawn off work on me, and I am diligently pushing it back on him. It is very stressful for me, because, in the past, I would take it on. I just can't do it anymore...even with his raised voice and stomping around the house. That is a trigger for me, and I must overcome!
