    I learned that my stupid new dog will sit outside in 40 degree weather and shiver like you wouldn't believe. Then when you let her in, she goes over to a corner and coils up in a ball for hours.

    Note to my dog: Girl, this is central NY, we get 140" a year in snowfall and the average temp between OCT to MARCH is 28 degrees. You are screwed pooch.

    it cant decide what it wants to do around here. one day its hotter than heck the next it is freezing. I turned the heater in the garage on the other day and today I had the windows open and the fans running full blast. oh well winter will be here soon enough and I will be begging for these warm days again. but at least this winter I will have my modine shop heater installed with any luck.

    I love it lol. 88 degrees tomorrow and by 3 AM it will be 42. WTF. At least I won't have to run the furnace tomorrow night, I can just leave the windows open all day and close em at night.

    WHY DID I TAKE THE AC'S OUT ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tell her just to wait till she drives the Mustang.

    It will seem like a new car to her.;)

    That is too funny! As I recommended to another viewer recently, drink massive amounts of adult beverages and lose your pants, and the family will leave you at home and make up the necessary excuses for you!

    I learned that moving from our starter house to our new house is going to be hellish no matter how well we plan, organize, and work ahead.

    I've had a very proactive attitude about this whole ordeal, but I'm beginning to realize there are just some unexpected things that'll happen that you can't make lists, spreadsheets, or diagrams for. Have faith and be strong!

    Thank god for my husband. He has been a saint through this whole process.

    Chris you are right. Since I retired and have been doing some free lancing it seems there are times weekends do get overlooked.

    My hat is off to all those folks who own and run their own business.
