don't get me wrong - the snow looks beautiful when you are looking at it through a picture window
but its not so pretty when your plow gets stuck, the tractor can't make it up the hill, and a neighbor's tree falls onto your property and blocks your driveway - further hindering the snow cleaning.
but with the help of a cousin and my mom (who at 62 really shouldn't have to help!!) - we shoveled the driveway enough for the tractor to make it up to our house. unfortunately the truck is still stuck..........
but sadly - what got completely overshadowed by the blizzard
was my hubby's birthday
there was no birthday cake (he desperately wanted to eat it the nite before - so we did)
no singing happy birthday
no decorations, or cards or presents......
no favorite dinner
and he didn't complain about that at all
but that is going to change today.
he was able to pick up some hours of work so he'll be gone all day and most of the evening. so while he's gone we will decorate
and make some cards
and make a present of some sort........
and find some type of cake to make that only requires one stick of butter.......b/c that is all i have......
then tomorrow we'll make his favorite dinner
and sing happy birthday
b/c he is great husband, dad, uncle, brother-in-law, brother, son and cousin to many
and he deserves a special day
