So the bad roads lasted until Thursday and Gabe had off ALL week. It was an unexpected WONDERFUL family WEEK!! We had so much fun just hanging out at the house and watching it RAIN. It rained in November. It rained over an inch. Too bad the warm weather didn't last. The temperature has now dropped to -30. Last night the low was -40! Winter is back with a vengeance. Grayson and I aren't going outside much these days.
Speaking of going out my little Buddy hates to go outside. I had to go outside and get him every time he went outside yesterday. His poor little feet just can't handle the cold. Buddy just sits down in the snow and ice because he can't walk anymore. Poor Buddy. Buster is doing just fine. I think he was made to live in cold weather. Gabe and Buster have started skijoring. This is where you hook a harness to your dog and let him pull you while you cross country ski. I am going to try it once Buster learns to do it. I'm gonna let Gabe do all the hard work!! He loves it. They both do.
Thanksgiving was great. We went over to the McCurdy's house and had Thanksgiving with 5 other couples. I forgot to take a picture of the food but we had lots of it. Mashed potatoes, corn casserole, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, turkey, rolls, salad and Cornbread Dressing!! Two of the couple were not from the South and had never had cornbread dressing. I was thinking we wouldn't have it but the McCurdy's are from Georgia so we did. Yay!!
This weekend was interesting. Friday night we had a water accident down stairs. Saturday afternoon Gabe lost his set of keys while he was skijoring. When I went to give him the key to the Subaru we discovered it had a FLAT! Sunday we spent two hours waiting for our tire to be fixed at Wal-Mart because they were the only place open. Too bad they didn't look at the tire when we dropped it off first because after two hours when they looked at it they told us they couldn't fix it. Talk about frustrating!! Gabe took it to another place on Monday and guess what? They FIXED it. That just reinforced why we try not to go to Wal-Mart. Gabe found his keys Sunday when he went back on the trail. He bought a metal detector that didn't work. He found the keys by himself because the detector was going off on everything but his keys. We were extremely lucky to find them. Crazy weekend.
