Colored the backyard trails with colored water. Christina enjoys it.

It was cold. I was and am tired. Hello bedtime. Hoping Christina sleeps in a little this morning.

Cold Weather Breakdowns

So, I can not stress enough to people how important it is to be prepared for car trouble in cold weather. The same for hot weather. Or any breakdown.

Dispatching tow trucks, I see too often calls coming in in which someone broke down and the temperatures are in the single digits.

I keep a coat, hat, mittens, boots, flashlight, batteries, candle, food, matches, knife, and a first-aid kit in a tote for both Christina and I.

I also rotate a couple of water bottles so that we have drinking water. Rotated to stay fresh and so they are not frozen. I use a little cooler to prolong the freezing process.

I may be a little over prepared. I worry about breaking down or going in the ditch traveling on the highway.

Backyard Fun

I continue to clear the trail in the backyard. I 'groom' the trail, weather and time permitting, by dragging the sled around with the punching bag in it. The bag weighs in just over 100 pounds.

Packing the snow down helps keep the sled on course while Christina is on it. And it helps with the wagon or her wheelchair as we roll around.

Time and weather permitting I will color the yard again before Christina comes on Friday.

Ring Ring Ring

What better place to complain about the phone ringing.

After just over a week off from work, I find the phone very annoying. Not a good sign when the job includes answering the phone.

This is the season for vehicle breakdowns. I guess that means the phone shall ring.

Back to Work

Now that the holiday season is over and Christina is back to school, it is time for me to go back to work.

I find I relax differently at work than when at home. Christina being home really lowers the blood pressure and keeps me calm. She also keeps me moving and I tire quickly.

I do love Christina and my time together. Every day is play day.
