I am not whining - really.

Did you read about Jodie's blogfest?
It is happening as we speak! I got out the globe to determine what time 11:00 on Saturday morning in Ballarat would be here, and 8:00 Friday evening is what I came up with. It sounds like lots of fun, and I'm looking forward to seeing photos. It would have taken major planning and way more money than I have to go there, so it's lucky I like staying home! And I am really not whining about the alterations I have to do. Really, I'm not. In fact I'm thankful that I can do them because . . . I have two arms. The person they are for only has one arm. Can you imagine how difficult it would be to sew with just one arm? Not just sewing, but tying shoes, baking cookies, peeling potatoes, putting toothpaste on your toothbrush, giving someone a hug, shoveling snow, planting a garden; all those things would be so difficult with only one arm.
We are in the midst of a major snowstorm, expected to have a foot by morning. I have to be at work at 7:30 a.m., unless Nordonia Hills Clinic closes for the first time in history due to snow. Not likely!

Hi Diana, I have actually booked the world map times, so I can keep an eye on what time it is in other parts of the world. Ballarat is not far from where I used to live. I even attended a school excursion there a long time ago.

Hope the clinic closes for you and then you can appreciate a day inside with lovely snow outside. I want snow you want swimming.

And no I don't think you are whining.

Oops it should say book marked the world time.

Having only one arm certainly would make most things very challenging. It must be very frustrating for the person you are helping out!
I hope you are okay with all that snow coming your way! Drive safely when you go to work!

This is the only bad thing about blogging. I have made friends all over the world who in all likelihood I will never ever meet (unless i win lotto)
