P. 365

January 17th
I have been craving this ottoman for months. On Saturday night, DJ and I decided it was time to indulge. However, there was also a horrible snowstorm. I just couldn't allow the snow to stop me from picking up this little gem. So I went. Very slowly. The whole way. And I almost didn't survive it. For anyone who has forgotten, the first time I drove in the snow in Pennsylvania, I did this to our car:
Needless to say, I am a nervous snow driver. The roads were almost completely deserted, and those that were driving concurred with my 7 miles per hour speed. But, don't you worry, one very slow car ride (an hour round trip to Target which is only 2 miles away), This little gal is sitting pretty in our dining area. It all about the sacrifice people.

January 18th
The Liberty Tunnels. I love all the craziness of Pittsburgh roads. Tunnels, bridges, one way streets, pot holes all over the place--what could be better?

January 19th
Wii did it. Well actually, DJ did it--for me. He beats the socks off me every time we play, but don't you worry, me and my little Mii, Lola, are going to take him down one day. Just you wait 'enry 'iggins. Just you wait.

January 20th
Obama's inauguration. I loved this little moment of humanity during the swearing in. The end of an old era, the beginning of a new. Good day to you, Mr. President.

Super cute ottoman, I am in awe of you...there is no way you could convince me to drive in that weather. (Not even if everything in the craft store was free) Sometimes I have a mini breakdown just getting the girls home from school. We just broke down and got a Wii too! We will have to get together and practice...Cory beats me every time!
