6 Inches and Counting!
Snow that is, ugh. Yep, I live in Pennsylvania and right in the "snow belt". Which means pretty much any time it snows in PA, we're going to get some of it too. Now last week we got a few inches of ice, which worries me in to craziness when Mr. Bear has to travel over 2 mountains to get to work. Around 11pm last night, I went to bed and there was no snow except what we already had, and upon momentarily waking up at 6:30am when Mr. Bear left for work, I was surprised to see the amount of snow we had accumulated. Over six inches, and it's still snowing. This would be joyful for me, if it were Christmas! But at Christmastime we hardly had any snow, after Christmas, no snow please, because by then I am so over it. So thankfully I got most of my monthly shopping done yesterday before the storm came, one problem was that I didn't know there was a storm coming, and there were people everywhere, especially in our store in town. I went out of town to Wal-Mart and Wegmans for some things. I usually price compare with Wal-Mart, Wegmans, and Weis, and end up at the 3. Wegmans and Walmart are near eachother so I am not doing too much running, but at the end of the day I am beat!! I can't believe some of the kids these days, now I use the term kids loosely because to some I am still at kid at the ripe old age of 22. I know this "kid" was probably 18ish, but he was checking us out Walmart, and he was annoying me. While checking out the folks in front of us, their card wouldn't go threw, so instead of helping them, he was TEXTING on his cell phone! Then when he went to get someone to help, he returned, and while waiting for help he began TEXTING again!!! Now this is a funny one, the woman in front of me after 20 mins, decides she now wants to pay on her walmart card with a check, and the cashier had no clue what she meant.. pay for what? Huh? So while she is writing out the check, you guessed it, he is TEXTING again.. then he runs her check threw and GIVES IT BACK TO HER!! He said "We give them back", and she says "NO you keep them".. my goodness. So between transactions he starts doing it again, how rude. After he checks out our stuff while waiting for me to sign on the line, he does it a last time. I find it so annoying, he was at work, where he's to be working, no playing with his phone!! So there is my mini-vent. Anyways, I have work to do, like stock my pantry, wash dishes, get out of my pj's...oh and the dreaded chest freezer needs organized before I pack my chicken breast... I hate that freezer..you hear me freezer, I hate you... oh no no I love you, no really I do, I just hate how you don't organize yourself, freeze my fingers, and chest when I lean in to dig for 10 minutes to find something. :(
