I know it looks different...

but I needed a change. For some reason those tan colors were getting on my nerves. I've been looking at other blogs....everyone has cool looking ones. Mine was ho hum and it's not much better but I do like shades of blue.

It took us hours to clear snow today. I told Gary that I think I have shovelitis. It's a fairly common disease contracted by wives that are forced to shovel ungodly amounts of snow and roof rake during the time their husband runs a snowblower while holding a cup of nice hot coffee. A few side effects of this disease (appearing after coming indoors) are 'helmet bangs' which is when your hair in the front of your head is sticking straight up in the air from a hat crammed on your head while your skull sweats profusely. Another effect is 'snowmobile legs' which is when you're not properly dressed and your thighs turn into blocks of ice cold frozen flesh that take hours to return to normal temperature. The final side effect is a screaming, white hot pain from every muscle in your arms that no human amount of ibuprophen can touch. Don't be fooled by this tricky disease....it mimics another one called Mowlawnomytis which is brought on by a push lawnmower in the warmer months. Sadly, many wives suffer from this too.

HaHaHaHaHaHaHa. This post made me laugh.

We don't have a snowblower, but we do have two snow shovels. So both of us have the effects you speak of.

And my theighs get VERY cold when we are outside for a long time. Why is it just the theighs and nothing else?? :)

I wish I had to mow, but you be my guest to the snow. I remember what it was like, but I had really creul parents, they always made me go shovel before the snow plows came by, so you know I had to shovel twice.
That really sucked!!!!!!!!!!
