Snowing Sideways

It snows horizontally here in Illinois.  Unless, of course, you are horizontal yourself.  Then...you guessed it, it's vertical.  But no matter how you slice it, anytime you find yourself in a situation that requires you to combine geometry and meteorology the resulting result will always be the same...stay home.  Don't go outside, don't even think about going outside!  Just stay home and be warm.  We have already arranged for other people to go outside and be cold; like the mail carrier and the dead, so we just don't need anymore cold people.  Stay home, and be a bum...like me (if only I could grow a five o'clock shadow...then my slothfulness would be complete)  

But if you must go out, please, change out of your sweatspants or jammie pants!  This appears to be a real epidemic here in Chicagoland.  It's everywhere. I saw a grown man just the other day with batman jammie pants on at the hardware store.  He was buying an electrical outlet.  He not only drove himself to the Home Depot, but would soon return home to finesse the high risk task of working with electricity, so I must assume he was somewhat capable of dressing himself.

On another note, Mark's job has improved.  Someone in upper management noticed a severe lack of grins and chortles in the office and started asking questions like: "we make games for a living, shouldn't we be having more fun?"  Changes are being implemented and we feel that our prayers have been answered.  Praises, as always, to Heavenly Father.


  1. That's fantastic news! I've been thinking about you guys so much. My friend Micaela lives about 6 hours away from you guys. I'm trying to plot a mid-western visit sometime in the (sadly distant) future for some visits.

  2. whew... I am so relieved to hear that. It makes you feel like there is some kind of justice in the world. Yay!
