Winter woes

Okay, I'm going to whine. Besides all the snow we've had and freezing weather, now we've got a problem in the house. The other day I was in the half-bathroom and noticed a streak of something coming down from the medicine cabinet. I opened it up and the bottom shelf was a little wet. I took everything out and wiped it dry. I meant to mention it to Ron and forgot. The next day, Ron noticed it and there was more leaking. He started putting little towels in there. Yesterday, he decided to take out the medicine cabinet (it's inside the wall) because more and more water was coming in it. The water is coming in from the top. They are only drops but they are filling up the containers pretty quick. We think because there is so much ice in the gutters that's why it's coming in. Everyone around here's gutters are frozen. I guess we just have to wait it out until the gutters all unfreeze. Eventually, I think we will have to call the guy that did the roof and gutters. I don't think this should have happened since we just had it done not even 1 1/2 years ago.

I'm still here

Sorry, it's been so long.

Not much has been happening around here. Just trying to survive the weather. Between the cold and snow, it has been an awful winter. I can't wait for Spring.

Mom's doing pretty good. She had her blood test this week and finally we get to go a whole month without having to get another one.

We had the in-law Christmas on Jan 11th. My brother came and stayed with Mom because we didn't think she could get down the steps at my sister-in-laws house. I had such a good time. It was good to get away a little bit. I barely finished knitting the dishcloths for the family but I got them all done. This is the first year I waited so long to do them.

Hope everyone is doing well.
