My arms are rubbery, Tim's gone and the task of shoveling has fallen on me. Well, I've decided it might be nice to be able to walk out our front door. ;)
Shoveling is really hard work when you have a frozen layer on top. I had to chop it away first, then I could shovel the snow away.
This is what it looks like: (warning: boring snow pictures *g*)
And this is what we had to plow through with the Highlander to get to the house. We were gone when this snow came. See the mound of snow? We made it down the whole driveway, then wondered if we'd make it through the hill in front of the garage.
We've discovered that a hybrid vehicle is nice, as far as gas consumption, but as far as torque and getting through snow... not good. We got stuck in my parents driveway this weekend. I think it's a warmer climate vehicle ;)
We did end up making it through to the garage and now we'll wait for it to melt a bit before venturing out again. Let's hope it warms up soon, it's 18 now, so guess we might have to wait a bit.
On an unrelated topic now, some news on Tim's job front. He found out Friday that his position is going to be dissolved. hmmmm...
and that they'll tell us more later. We're hoping for more info this week so we can kind of wrap our brains around it and maybe.. I don't know, try and decide what to do. It's not such a bad thing, Tim has wanted a change, but we're hoping for some type of severance package so we can make the house payment while looking for something else.
He has been contacted by a friend who works for a medical device company. They'd love to have him work for them. But then that keeps us here in MN. It would mean a move still, just not to where we thought. Brainerd or Duluth are the 2 living options that that job has brought about. Tim's kind of excited about the job, but none of us are too excited about the locations. We have lots to think about.
Here's to uncertainties in life and to taking each day as it comes.
