The boy had a relapse. STOP.
My college has a alumni e-mailing list that us TV people use for general keeping in touch, sport's trash talk and milkshake polls. This week someone sent out a 'funny snow story'. Those of you that don't know Oswego, New York, it gets about 150 inches of snow per winter and located on Lake Ontario it is windy as hell......my response and a few others....
The 'relo' company verbally accepted our offer yesterday. We must send them all 'original' documents with signatures before the sign off on it. That means we will have a signed offer on Tuesday and the house is ours. Now the fun part, closing, mortgage, moving, buyers remorse............
Put an offer on the house on Friday. it is being held by a relocation company so we have to wait for them to respond NOT the seller. Went to see it with my parents today, they love it!!! It is VERY big, 3300 square feet. More to come!!!!
Everyone is doing it so why not I!!!! BOLD is I saw it and Italics is I own it.

Back at work today and on lunch. Nothings changed since my 3 day weekend started. They were nice enough not to call me in while the boy was in recovery, considering everything that is going on here, that is VERY understanding of them.
What a CRAZY few days.
Found an awesome site today Encyclopedia Mythica. Anyone interested in any type of Mythology should stop be here. AWESOME!!!!!
The following is a review of my latest read from My Page of Stuff. I keep a record of what I am reading and watching and have just started posting reviews there as well........
Did anyone catch the "100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders' on VH1 last week. Now I have songs I haven't heard in 10 years stuck in my head!!!!!!
I love this time of year, as football comes to an end and Spring Training is right around the corner. It is also time for the Hall of Fame announcements and this year are two excellent players. You know you are getting old when players you have cards of back in the day are now in the Hall of Fame. One of my first Fantasy Teams had Paul Molitor at DH and now he is a Hall of Famer.
The following is a copy of a comment I left on another site, enjoy:
Monday was a No Day for me. Did as little as possible. Feeling better today. Going to hit the road, travel to the mall maybe, pick up some comics, cruise a neighborhood we are looking at and relax.
For the record, my favorite:
OK here it is January 4th and I am blogging. While that is good, I am not. I am in a bad mood today and I should be happy. We went house hunting yesterday and found a few we love, bu tI am afraid we might be looking above our spending limit and setting ourselves for a letdown when we see what we really can afford. Now the wife wants to build, which would be fine but more time as a refugee and more months with our stuff in storage. Of the two we found one has a spectacular 1st floor layout, awesome garage and yard (for me) but a 2nd floor layout my wife and I do not like. The 2nd house is great all around, not as stunning as the 1st, which is surrounded by $200 homes. This one is a steal but has NO YARD, but is bigger by at least 400 sq.ft. AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH........I'll keep you updated.
What one thing are you most looking forward to . . .
It's 2004 and boy did we have a busy/hectic/sad/mad/joyful 2003. Anything and everything happen last year. Some highlights:
