My HOA is Ridiculous, but My Luck is Great!

Sorry for the picture quality, it is too cold for me to open the front door but I needed a picture of the snowfall we have had. Snowfall that wasn't supposed to be here until this evening. Snowfall that, so far, totals an inch [if that].

1. Can someone explain to me WHY my HOA has the nice, friendly landscapers out this morning - landscaping? I am not kidding. I thought it was bad they were out yesterday, in January, mowing the lawns. Yes, I said it. MOWING the lawns. Well, they are out here again today, doing god knows what, but it isn't anything to do with the snow. I think they are trimming trees. Trees that are not in danger of toppling due to snow/ice, but simply look lopsided. I hate my HOA. These guys are on the job 24/7/365. The end results are spectacular, but they seriously do not need to be working this hard. In the snow. For all things green in my neighborhood.

2. Yeah, baby...onto a happier subject!!!! My girlies get to stay home with me today. Do dah, do dah. I was so right yesterday! Go ME! And it didn't take 2 inches of snow. Just barely an inch. Boy, I love woosie [sp?] school systems!!! 'Cause my kids are staying home. With me....yay!

I have had one hour of sleep. I hope I am going to be awake to do crafty stuff with them later. :D

I hate HOA's! We pay ours about $100/ month and I really wonder what they do with it.

Last month they were using the leaf blower in 30 mile and hour + wind. What?

30 mile an hour wind? OMG! I am so glad someone feels my pain about this....I feel bad for the gentlemen that have to be mowing lawns in 20 degree weather, it is ridiculous!

We pay $146 - but at least I know that the garbage is being picked up, we do have 6 [SIX!] pools to pick from [incl.] and the landscaping is spectacular in the spring/summer/fall.

I just don't see the point in landscaping in the winter...LOL...

...and yah...who needs SIX pools, stupid.

:) <3 for the happy days spent with one's kids. I would swear to you that I think my parents (and most parents!) seem to pray that their kids will still have to go to school and not be stuck at home with them! lol!
