Reality vs fantasy

DH is finally seeing a specialist (ENT) today about his ear. His ear canal is nearly swollen shut, the right side of his face is swollen, and he is in a lot of pain. I hope the ENT can give him some much needed relief. DD went back to school today. She didn't cough much last night and the school nurse volunteered to take a look at her today (thanks, Glo!).

Since DH has been going to bed extremely early, I have the tv to myself. Rather than watch fluff or the State of the Union, I watched this and this. Talk about a downer.

Neighbor D came over last night with the tractor and bucket and cleared the driveway (thanks, D!). It was a novel idea being "snowed in," but the reality is that I do actually need to go to work and I can't really be a hermit.

If I were a hermit, I think I would want to live in this adorable little cottage (in Wales).

I always secretly wished I could live like a Smurf. Enjoy the tour!

I'm glad Grace is feeling better, but poor Brett! I hope he gets some relief soon!
