I clean off my car and have a rather uneventful drive ( considering the inch of ice on some streets)
Now usually my friend Nick is the first there. Today when I pulled in the lot was empty. I knew he was sick yesterday so I figure I'd just wait for the day shift supervisor to arrive.
For some unknown reason the thought occured to me to call in to the Lion "emergency hotline".
Guess what, we were opening up at 10:00 am !!! How stupid I felt.
Now I wasn't about to head back out on the highway, so I figured I'd just take a nap.
I didn't have to wait very long however, since they didn't bother to call the supervisor either, and she showed up on time.
Funny, but totally expected that the people in charge live 2 minutes away and can't come in on time, and the 2 people who live in Chase and Dundalk arrive early in an ice storm.
I suppose that I'll never learn !!
P.S.- sorry I didn't post a Barbara thought yesterday. Please be sure and read the one I put on today.
Love to all,

One of my favorites - Barb and I used to go to an aerobics class at Oliver Beach Elementary. We'd dance and exercise for an hour and then go back to her house and eat a big bowl of ice cream. Totally defeated the purpose, but back then I was thin and it didn't matter what I ate!

I like this quote from Sports Illustrated:
"Flacco's performance conjured memories of another rookie quarterback who took his team to the AFC title game before coming unglued at Heinz Field. Ben Roethlisberger finished his first NFL season by going 14-of-24 with three interceptions in a loss to the New England Patriots in the 2004 AFC championship game.
Roethlisberger won the Super Bowl the following season.
The Ravens can only hope a year of experience will work similar wonders for their young quarterback, who only 13 months ago was flinging passes for the University of Delaware."
We'll see where things go from here! I took this picture as we left downtown this evening. I love when Baltimore is purple. I'll miss the camaraderie the games inspire.

Then today, I went with friends to the Obama rally! We got in line at noon, got to the War Memorial at 2, and heard his speech at 4. I can't even begin to express how incredible it was to see and hear Obama in person. Definitely worth the wait in below freezing temperatures!
Tomorrow- down to Pickles to watch the Ravens game! And I'm still deciding whether or not to go to Inaugaration. My desire to be part of the "experience" may have been satiated by today's events, but we'll see.
Is anyone else doing anything fun for the Ravens game tomorrow? Mom and Dad- enjoying the HD TV?

And as if this isn't depressing enough, we learned today that Marty/principal is leaving at the end of the month. He was offered a job in the school district where he lives.

Artscape, here in Baltimore, is the largest outdoor art festival in the country, so I was thinking that Liz may be interested in applying for a booth. I went with some friends last year and a lot of the vendors are right up Liz's alley.
If you're interested, this year Artscape will be held the weekend of July 17. Vendors typically keep their booths all weekend. If you go to their website, http://www.artscape.org/, there's information about their events and applications. It may be a nice excuse for a visit too! :P
I am so stoked about this win, although it's unfortunate that lots of people consider it "luck." (Yes, the refs made a bad call, but are three turnovers by our defense luck? I don't think so. :P)
Nick and I will be at Pickles again this coming Sunday if anyone wants to join us!
