    2008 Is Gonna Be Great!

    I got over 8 inches last night!

    This is what we woke up to this morning:

    I took this out the door before I put on my layers of clothes to go clear the driveway. Yeah, that's my job because I choose to play in the snow. I love it! I know all the old men in my neighborhood think Mr. Sign is a loser because I'm the one out there moving snow. Maybe they are jealous that their wives don't blow them...er...their driveways.

    We stayed home last night partly because of the weather and mostly due to the drunks out driving. I'm a loser because I had to take a nap before midnight. In my defense, I worked yesterday pulling coverings off of signs for a no smoking campaign at the hospital that went into effect today. It was really cold when I started out and my job was made tougher by having to climb a ladder in snow banks.

    I had to climb up a fence to get to a sign that was taller than my ladder would allow. I never could have imagined that I would be climbing on anything other than a Twinkie a year ago. On my way over to the fence, I ended up falling flat out on my a$$. It was one of those slow motion falls. There was a large sign buried under the snow and as soon as my feet hit it, I felt like I was on ice skates. As I was slipping and sliding, I became painfully aware of how many people were in the vicinity. I gave up trying to stay upright and fell a$$ over teakettle on the ground. I tried my hardest to get up fast enough that people wouldn't see me sprawled on the ground but couldn't get up because of the slippery sign. I slid to the edge of the sign and jumped up, checking to see who witnessed the gracefulness that is all SignGurl. I think only one person saw me flailing around. The only thing I hurt was my pride. My body is a bit jostled, but no worse for the wear.

    My mother in law always said that whatever you do on January 1st sets the tone for the rest of the year. If this is true, then we will have abundant company and snow. Oh, and Mr. Sign and I are going to fight over the remote. How is your year going to be?

    Wow, I better go find something really awesome to do before the night is through or I'm screwed.

    My jaw dropped at the first line "I got 8 inches"!!!!!! WELL REALLY?! lol
    I hate blowing the snow because our blower is to heavy for me to push. Besides Mr gab loves doing it and he does as many neighbors as he can. (OMG I just read that and you really could take it the wrong way!!!)

    Oooooooooooh I hate falling. Hate it. Glad you weren't hurt, woman.

    I'm SO jealous of your snow. *sniffle* I want to frolic in the white stuff with my kid so very badly.

    Lime~ I had to force myself to get out of my pajamas for just that reason. I didn't do much cleaning yesterday. I hope that doesn't turn out too badly :)

    BTE~ Keep that crap at your place! I love you!

    Strumpet~ I wouldn't worry too much. A chick as hot as you has the world at her feet.

    Gab~ You opened yourself up on that one, lol! I love doing "it" too and even did a few of my neighbors too!

    Buddha Girl~ I'd love to send you some of our snow We just got 4 more inches last night. My girls are still on winter break but many of the other school districts are closed today.

    Katie~ Are you sure you weren't still drunk from the night before, hehe?

    We can compare bruises. Happy New Year. We lounged around playing Wii and went to the park to feed the ducks.

    wisdomstuff said...

    Happy New Year Signgurl! I took a deep breath when I read the opening line to this post and had to do a doubletake.

    .....Oh I guess she meant snow.

    It’s almost like I can read the bounce in your step. Way cool!
    Mine is off to a rocky start.

    Well, how is my year going to be? My wife and I woke up on New Years day to find out that the water heater wasn't' working.....what does that tell you?

    SignGurl said...

    Yippeeskip~ Sounds like a great day! Luckily, I have no evidence of my clumsiness.

    Wisdomstuff~ You be the judge, hehe!

    Fox~ Sometimes I can be funny, at least I think I'm funny. Does that count?

    Sal~ Hugs to you, my friend.

    Lotus~ Oh, that totally won't make a difference. I mean, how many hot water heaters can one go through in a year?
