Spring is on the Horizon

It's been awhile....thought I'd better at least check in.
There's been nothing to report lately other than the fact I've managed to stay employed so far while others all around me lose their jobs due to the economic fiasco that's been brought down on our heads since last fall. This blog isn't big enough, even if I had the energy, to discuss the world situation, but suffice it to say that things are ugly and more than likely will get uglier. We're treading on ground that's never been traveled on before to this degree in this country. Who knows where we'll be by the end of the year.
Economics aside, this has been one long damn winter. Since the last entry life has pretty much been wake up, go to work, come home, eat, take a nap most of the evening, check Email, play with music blog, then go to bed and repeat. Weekends are only different in that I don't have to go to work. My energy levels have been extremely low, at least in part to the world situation and the rest because I'm just stressed and so so sick of cold weather.
It's still winter here now but the rain we've had in the last week has gotten rid of all but the very biggest piles of snow. At least the sidewalks are clear so I can take the dogs out for a walk in the evenings. It's suppose to only be in the 40's for the next week so there's no reason to get excited about spring just yet, but we have made it thru the worst part.
Saturday was Chris' 17th birthday. Hard to believe but it's true. We took him and his girlfriend out to Texas Roadhouse for a steak dinner to celebrate.
Yesterday me and Mercury went up to Big Rapids to visit the folks. It was cloudy and spitting rain on the way up. We got there about 11:30am and stayed until 5:00pm. We had a good dinner and spent time helping mom with the computer and talking to dad about the world while I played stuffed animal catch with Merc. During late afternoon it started to rain pretty hard and get quite dark outside. We even had some pretty good thunder roll thru. When it was time to leave it was still raining quite hard and the streets in town were flooded. We stopped at the D.Q. for some ice cream and then headed thru the downpour for home. It rained all the way home. We got back here about 7:00. I sat down in the chair for a minute and promptly fell asleep until Chris called from work needing a ride. Later on I took a shower and caught up on Email before calling it a weekend. Ready or not here's comes another week.
That's about it for now.....hopefully things will pick up a bit in the near future.
