Flats suck especially when the tire iron you have is for your truck and too big for the friends' tire you're trying to change.    Had quite the adventure last night after work...  I'm on lunch, but will write more tonight.

Okay... so I stopped in at the car wash to run my truck through... it needed it bad after driving in the snow, salt and underground all week.  I contemplated going by my friend's house on my home, but wasn't sure she was home, so just went home the regular way.   Good thing!   My friend, Sarah, from work was on the side of the road with a flat tire...  that sucks!   I stopped, she was excited to say the least...  we tried to take the tire off, but my tire iron was too big (me=Truck..she=Ford Taurus.. it just didn't fit)  so the hubs (you really think I was doing this without calling him and asking questions?  yea, right!)  so he suggests I run back to the mine to see if our other co-worker, Dustin, was still there...   I did, and he was.  He said he'd help so back I went, and he was right behind me.

So...  his tire iron fit, and we got the lug bolts off (okay he did, Sarah and I were watching and keeping him company.. .I mean come on, how many people does it take to change a flat?)

So now.. the tire won't come off...   yes he knows what he's doing, etc...  the tire was rusted to the rotor....  which!   We spent the next hour watching and giving ideas of how to kick the tire, drive it, etc...  to get it to come off..
Well this car shows up that wants to go down the road we are on, only we have her car in the way, so she has to get in and move it, which FINALLY breaks the tire loose and Dustin gets it off and the sugar coated donut (okay so no sugar, but it sounds nicer doesn't it?)  well he puts it on, she's happy, and I'm relieved.. ready to go home!  It was freakin cold!  LOL

:)  She promises cookies the next day...   yummy!

Thank you Dustin for being such a great guy and helping! :)

Romantic... Is it or is it not?

I say IT IS!

The hubs bought me a beautiful Natural Keyboard Valentine's Day.  :)  I know, I know, you're thinking.... What??  But for me it's a very romantical gift. I can type all day long ! I just love it!

I think everyone should learn to use them.  You'd be amazed at how easy they are on your hands and arms. I can type like nobodys business with this thing, and the pain in my hands isn't so bad when I just type.

Go here to view a photo of the same keyboard I have! It's awesome!

Snow, snow and MORE SNOW

oh and ice too!  

Sorry it's been so long, cable and electric knocked out because of ....  yep you guessed it... the weather!

Although I got some beautiful pictures of snow, I've had my fill.  I'm ready for SPRING.. not Summer, but definitely Spring.   We had over two feet of snow during the first blast last Friday (Feb 5), played with the snow blower on Saturday,  and made a nice patch of grass for Turbo to do his business in.  Didn't last long though, another foot on Wednesday and a second foot the rest of the week... let's just say that Turbo isn't a happy puppy any longer. :)   Nope, the snows taller than he is tall!

Have tons to do, drawing, cleaning and such and a crazy work schedule working on a project that I don't feel like I've been home at all the last week. Hopefully will only be another week of working till 10pm then back to normal... I hope!

On a really nice note, the hubs bought me a natural keyboard for work, which is going to be such a blessing. I've been working without being able to feel my left hand most of the day, but hey I can still type at least 1000 files a day with very limited mistakes.  :) Yay!
