Who wants to make snow angels with me?!

Posted by Marko on March 28, 2020 in Off Topic |

Chicago has been getting its ass kicked by snow since 8 a.m. yesterday. It stopped for a couple hours last night and I thought it might be a good idea to do some shoveling since more was on the way. I wanted a head start so I’d only shovel 6 not 10 inches. My efforts were futile. The snow was heavy and there was a lot of it. I managed to clear a small path along our driveway (which is huge by the way) but it’s covered by now.

Oh, and it’s snowing again. I think it’s supposed to stop by either 1 or 6 p.m. My dad called me at 7:20 this morning. I was scared that it was going to be another “get me out of jail free” call, but he was warning me about driving today. He snow plows and said he’s been out since Wednesday night. Between 5-10 inches is expected to fall. I think we already have 6ish. And then I heard rumors that it’s going to snow again this evening. I hope I’m wrong about that one.

I’m glad I have no where to go today! Plus, it’s a great day to throw on some obnoxiously bright-colored boots and roll around in the snow 🙂

Snow Days

Posted by Marko on March 15, 2020 in Off Topic |

I went sledding with my younger cousin today against my will. Obviously from the previous post you can tell I’m not a huge fan of the cold. I’d be better suited living in Arizona or California. California scares me though. Too many natural disasters and Britney Spears drama episodes. Anyway, I trudged through the snow […]

Rubbed the Wrong Way

Posted by Marko on March 8, 2020 in Off Topic |

Yesterday I mentioned that I went downtown for a massage. I’ve been complaining about a knot that I believe is growing in my shoulder. I had a voucher for a free student therapist massage at my school. Why not? I got there early to fill out my intake form and I specifically wrote that I […]

We’re Just Friends!

Posted by Marko on February 22, 2020 in Off Topic |

Jamie asked a good question in her post this morning: “Can people in a relationship have friends of the opposite sex?” I told her that my response to this would be much too long for a comment and decided to make it into a post of my own. I gave her a short answer of: […]

The Valentine’s Day That Never Was

Posted by Marko on February 13, 2020 in Off Topic |

Everybody else is doing it. Why not share my stories as well? (If everybody else jumped off a bridge, would you? It depends how warm the water is and what I’m wearing.) The bad. The worst was in 1999. I had just gotten into an official relationship with an “older” man. Okay, he was 17, […]

Puffy the Stuffed Bunny

Posted by Marko on February 10, 2020 in Off Topic |

It started when I was six. On a weekend trip to J.C. Penney, I begged and pleaded with my parents to buy me a $5.00 stuffed bunny. They, of course, said no — it’s too expensive. If I really wanted it, they said, I could save up my allowance and come back and get it […]

Old Gold. Sold. For Cash

Posted by Marko on January 25, 2020 in Off Topic |

I’ve been thinking about selling some of my old gold jewelry I never wear anymore for cash while gold prices are still high (today they’re $1,036.60 per oz for 24ct gold). After doing some research online and reading this Wall Street Journal article, I decided to call USGoldBuyers. At first I was a little nervous […]

Mystery pain is the worst kind of pain

Posted by Marko on January 17, 2020 in Off Topic |

I feel like I’ve been punched in the jaw. I noticed the pain yesterday. It’s not quite my throat but not quite my jaw. At first I thought it might be wisdom tooth pain, but it doesn’t hurt when I chew on that side or poke my gums. The area right underneath my jaw bone, […]

New Year, New Focus

Posted by Marko on January 5, 2020 in Off Topic |

Since the new year has begun, I have a renewed — and even obsessive — focus on my financial goals. Much has happened in the latter part of 2019 to get my financial wheels turning. In December my husband landed a new full-time job, which ended up being a 62% pay increase. Needless to say, […]

Rolling up the Dough

Posted by Marko on December 29, 2019 in Off Topic |

Last night and tonight I rolled most of the coins from a cup my husband keeps in the drawer of his night stand. I have to say, he was shocked when I told him how much I was able to roll up from the cup. $50.50! It’s hard to believe that much loose change was […]
