First day of winter Thursday!!!!

I love the first day of winter because that means the days are steadily getting longer and spring is coming!!!!!! Can't wait to start planning camping trips. I have to wait until my Wifey gets her class schedule. She is taking 3 classes to renew her teaching certificate to hopefully land a K-2 teaching position next fall.

Because of Christmas or because of snow? We are having a whiteout blizzard in Wyoming on the first day of winter. I Will need to go out and feed hay to the calves this morning. Hard for them to get down to the hay in the field in this weather.

Michigan used to be beautiful back in the 40s and 50s. Lake Michigan even had clear water. Trouble was there weren't any jobs then or now. I am originally from Muskegon

I don't know if I should start making plans for the summer or not. I think the Myan calander runs out and I don't want to waste my time if we all won't be here any more.

Common sense tells me to max out the credit cards and empty the bank accounts. That is the little voice I hear that says use it or loose it. Another little voice says that all the other dooms day nut cases have been wrong and we just might make it through the comming year. Decisions decisions - - -.
