I feel as though....

I feel as though I have been missing from "bloglandia", I know I have been very neglectful of many of your blogs, please know I am still reading but commenting has really gone to the wayside...

you see Christmas has kind of thrown me, I was pretty darn busy for a while with commissions and this week has been a bit of a respite from that, I do have one large project due before Christmas, so next week I might be boggled down with that...all things depending.

Today I will spend my day packaging things and (crosses fingers) taking photos of some of the new pieces I finished yesterday...you see the sun has not been out in ages here, and that has made photographing work all but impossible, in my impatience yesterday I did try to photo them, but alas they all came out blurry, I blamed the camera, myself, photoshop, and then myself some more before finally just accepting the fact that it constantly looks like the sun has just set.

So keep my silly photos in your thoughts and hope for a break of sunshine today, as of tomorrow we will be snow covered yet again as this fair city is preparing to shut down completely with the impending storm.

Now some of you familiar with Columbus realize that for some reason, even though we get a lot of snowy winter weather here...the city itself is unable to handle it, and quite literally shuts down with a series of "snow emergencies"

like Level 1 Emergency - 1" of snow, proceed with caution
Level 2 - 2"-3" try not to leave the house, begin stockpiling piles of meat and soda (or something like that
Level 3 -4"-5"- You are only supposed to leave if you have to work, if wherever you work has not been closed.
Level 4- 5" or more of snow - do not leave the house, you are not allowed, everything is closed except hospitals (pretty much) you will get pulled over and given a ticket for being out.

ok, some of these totals might be wrong but I don't think so, at one point last year we got about 8" of snow and the schools shut down for like 4 days.

so yeah....here I am blogging about the weather, and I know that's pretty lame, but bear with me, because this weekend during the virtual whiteout/snow catastrophe....we will be with the mean cheese, miss meanburger.

All I have to say is thank god we are now in this big house, instead of our little apartment, I don;t think any of us would make it through....you've seen the shining right?? It would be like that, except in the role that Jack Nicholson played...well that would be the mean cheese, while my bubs and I hid, and feared for our lives.

lol

ok, enough babble.

talk to you all soon

xoxoxo

Oh, it must be great to be spending your first christmas in your new house!!! I forgot about that. Very exciting.
I love snow. I wish it would snow here, damnit. We got tons of hail yesterday, but it's not quite the same.
Good luck with all the projects.

I can see you and your bubs walking backwards in the snow to throw the meanburger off your trail...

Good luck.

Jenn!
I'm so jealous. I miss the snow ... believe it or not. I've lived in the south for 10 years and have seen it only a few times. Growing up in Cleveland, that's quite a snow withdrawl. If you get out in it this weekend, make a snow angel for me :-)

I wish they would institute that ticket rule in Boston, that would save everyone from the 8 hour + commute they faced yesterday! I blogged about the weather today too :-P

Also Mele Kalikimaka is one of my favorite holiday tunes...now I am sad to hear about Bing & his personal life from your other post. I will never hear that song the same way again.

I, too, have been missing from bloglandia, and may still be for a couple more days. Company will do that to you. Rest assured that I will catch up with you (and fill you in on all the gossip) v.v. soon.

Miss you! Heart you!
