Opps, I spoke to soon. The trailer did not sell. We still own it and Paul will have to make another trip and try to sell. We had two independent parties make a deal, but in the end they could not come up with the money. i don't quite get how people don't know how much money they have, but I suppose that is just my disappointment talking., and the fact that I am so anal about kowing what is in our checking account.

Paul sold the travel trailer. Happy am I, until he buys another. Bye-bye trailer.

9News just updated snow totals, Aurora got 12.4 inches, Broomfield 11.5 as of 9:30 Wednesday morning. We might get another1-3 inches of snow this afternoon, but the worst is behind us.
I just went to a meeting where half the attendees were not there, and my supervisor is telling me today is not a snow day.
Snow totals for Lakewood were not listed on 9News. How much snow did you get, Barbara?

I was going to take a picture this morning of all the snow I shovel. But I was shaking (muscle spasms) and sweating, so bad and I was so exhausted! It was all I could do to get dress and go to work.

Channel 9 says Aurora got 8 inches as of 8 PM last night. I think it was more like 12 inches. Anyway, it was a heavy snow not the light fluffy fun snow. The drive in had a good five inches of sloshie snow. I hope it doesn't freeze tonight.

I got the bus route and thought about taking the bus in, but that would have taken an hour and I would still have to shovel snow when I got home. I would have to go to the Aurora mall and then transferred to another bus, what a pain.

Today is trash day. I had a lot 'moving' trash (now that our downstairs is finished) to add to the collection, but I was exhausted after dealing with the snow, and I am not sure trash will be picked up today. Paul will gripe about the trash when he comes back, but it was just to much after all the snow. I did manage to toss the smelly day to day trash, but nothing extra.

Almost every school district is closed today...probably because they have not used their alloted snow days yet. It is ugly out there, but not so bad that school needs to be closed. At least I didn't have to deal with the extra traffic, but I feel bad for working parents.

Paul had just about excepted the fact that he now lives in Colorado and he should needs to work on building a life here, and then he went to Oregon, and he is back to wanting to move to Portland! I should never have let him go.

Had a nice visit with Judy on Monday. Brandy gets so excited when she is around anyone in the Bush family it is embarressing. When we little Dad would ask us (kindly) to turn the light off, reminding us were weren't raised by wild animals. So, when Brandy acts so out of control I want to say something along the lines that she wasn't raised by wild animals.

Enjoyed Amanda's Senior Recital on Tuesday. Amanda's voice has gotten so strong!

The basement in coming along beautifully, next time some needs a place to stay, it will be ready (Amanda? Brittany? Mom? Judy?) I know that probably no one else notices the difference between before the panelling was taken down and the walls were insulated and dry walled, but we know the difference and we are happy with the change, even though it probably does not add value to the house. The bathroom had a tad of mold, so it is good that we replaced, dry wall and two by fours in the bathroom.

Paul is talking about going to Oregon after this project is done. He is talking about selling the RV. If he is able to sell I will be happy, but I am not holding my breath. Stuff is easy to buy, not so easy to sell. I will be working on getting stuff back into the bedroom and craft room while he is gone. I hope he gets the toilet and washer and dryer back in the bathroom before he goes. Which means he will have to level the bathroom floor and tile before he goes, which means it will be a while.

I guarantee you that Paul is part gypsy. He is never happy where he lives, he always thinks the other side of the mountain is greener. Friday night we watch an episode of House Hounters in which a couple bought a second home ($430,000) in Maine. Now Paul has decided we should move to Maine. Why, you may ask? Because it's pretty. He may think it is pretty. I am saying there is a reason Stephen King's novels are so realistic. Why would I want to move. I like it here.

Sunset, Sunrise.

On the way to work yesterday I saw the most beautiful sunrise. I was going to take a picture with the camera on my cell, until I remembered I don't have a cell. It was early things were coming to me very slow. I took my camera to work this morning, but alast, there was no beautiful sunrise. If you miss the moment it is gone forever.

I can't help but wonder if my beautiful sunrise is some how related the earthquake in Chile, or maybe even the one in Tawian. It was such a deep red and so vivid, you would think that volcanic ash was some how involved.
