At this point, my back & muscles are OK (I think). Taking a break today & I know I'll be stuck at home tomorrow. Briefly, I've been spending my time digging my car out of the ice from last week's storms. I've had to work shoveling my husband's car out 1st while my car sat frozen in ice. It was soft snow originally but froze over. Anyway, the issue here at home is since dh is a teacher & earns a steady paycheck, his car has priority over mine. Remember I'm i real estate & can work from home + I work on commission - not regular salary. So, between the two of us, his attitude is I can deal with buyers & sellers in between the storms - AFTER I dig my car out. Hate to say it, but I do agree with him - after all, how many times can a teacher call out & get a substitute? The irony is here in the suburbs of NYC, ALL public & private schools are closed every time it snows more than 2 inches. In New York City - the opposite happens - schools remain open until it snows more than 5 inches. In other words, if it starts snowing early in the morning but doesn't get to 5 inches until after school starts, the kids still have to go to school & then later the schools can decide to close or not. New York City doesn't believe in taking days off. And of course, my husband works for the New York City school system - not the suburbs.
This winter has been unbelievable here in NYC's suburbs. And of course I'm the one doing 80 - 90% of the shoveling because dh has a bad back & goes to a chiropractor regularly. I'm the one with a strong back & muscles, so I'm dreading tonight & tomorrow's storm. AND I JUST FINISHED getting my car out of ice yesterday - working on it little by little. Hammering away at the ice with the shovel. I apologize if I haven't posted recently, but now you know why.
At this point, I am dreaming of a warm Caribbean vacation relaxing on some resort getaway. Instead, dh is off next week & we'll be spending next week working on income taxes. I may have to work on my car too - who knows. And worse yet - Just read in the news Toyota is recalling all Prius's from 2009 - 2014 - my car is a 2012.
Needing some cocktail to erase my misery. My Valentine's wish this year - that Caribbean island getaway - forget chocolates & flowers.
