Yup, this wind can definitely stop anytime now.  Woke up to -26C (-36C with windchill) this morning.  Ooh, it's warmed up slightly since yesterday, where we were -42C with windchill. 

 

Sure hope my work truck starts today, because uhhh I don't have an extension cord to plug the vehicle in (nor is my exterior outlet turned on because we have numerous power thieves in the area).  I'm hoping doubly so because that new software is live today. 

 

On the flipside, my character has become rather well versed in the shifty teleporty stabby department in Divinity Original Sin 2: Definitive Edition.. And hubby is now trying out a necromancer build that's downright evil epic.   It's rather fun to be able to teleporty all over the table and backstab the living daylights out of things, but it's also rather hilarious when you whirlwind or fan of knives and you get multiple backstabs in on the enemies...

My oldest dog has recently gotten to the point where she can no longer climb more than a couple of stairs in one go without hurting herself. Unfortunately, our TV/general hangout room is on the second floor. She's not been very happy about not being allowed to come hang out with us. And since she's about 100 pounds of muscle she has a habit of tearing down any gate put up to keep her off the stairs and then dragging herself up them injury or no. 

 

But we have a nice big guest bedroom on the first floor. And now that the holidays are over we no longer have a constant parade of house guests. So we decided to swap those 2 rooms around so she can hang out with us again and maybe not risk hurting herself more. That means my wife and I spent the weekend moving furniture up and down a narrow, steep staircase with a small landing and turn in the direction of stairs. The hanging out room wasn't too bad. It was mainly just a large, unweildy couch and some low tables. But getting all the furniture from the guest bed up the stairs was grueling. It also doubled as our library and included 2 floor to ceiling book shelves filled to overflowing. Man I hate moving books.

 

We managed to get it almost all done. Though half the house is still trashed from having to move everything out of the way to get the furniture past. And I still have to figure out how to get an ancient sewing machine up to our attic.

 

But when we finally called it quits and sat down in the new TV room to relax for a bit my old dog was so happy. She's got her bed in there with us, and even though she can't jump up on the couch with us anymore you can tell she's much better just being in the same room with us. I think she had her most relaxed sleep with us there since before Thanksgiving. 

 

My back, on the other hand, feels like someone jumped up and down on it for a while. My wife and I both agreed, next time we're hiring someone to move all this crap. 

 

I love how you did this to make your dog more comfy!

 

WOOF APPROVES!

@Glitterwolf Get well soon!!

 

@Thoramel That's a very kind thing to do, I'm glad she's happy!!

 

Been a little stressed for a test very soon.

 

Unrelated, thought I'd listen to Conan O'Brien's podcast and was enjoying it.. turned off the volume without realising it and spent twenty minutes with the podcast running while doing a bunch of other stuff. oops. Happens so often with podcasts and I.

@Thoramel, I can related with you. My 15 3/4 yr old Shepard is having issues with her hips making stairs difficult as well. She like to join me upstairs in the gaming room which also contains my painting area, and this weekend when coming downstairs her hips gave out and she slid 3/4 of the way down. With the area being remodeled, I haven't been able to get a railing up and they are just plain wood at this point. It scared the Elf out of me. Since moving my stuff downstairs isn't an option for me, I stuck with having to install a gate so she can't come up. :down:

The Onion must be about the most useful, versatile vegetable there is.

 

So true.

 

I have certainly cooked food without including onions, but it's hard to imagine living without some kind of allium in my kitchen.

So Mad Max films are actually accurate as far as depicting the typical daily wardrobe of Australians.

Either that or they were a Prophetic Documentary series and the looting starts with animals....

IIRC the original reason for programs to split files was due to disk size limits. If you had a 2MB file but disks would only handle 1.44MB you had to split the file into two parts to copy it to another computer. I would assume the downloading issues provided a secondary use of these programs.

Wow, and my computer doesn't even HAVE a floppy drive, just a RW DVD drive, that I never use.

 

I can't remember the last time I got software that wasn't downloaded.

 

On the other hand hubby has a stack of CDs that he has for things he doesn't want to "vanish into the aether". Word processor, DTP, graphics programs, and lots of disks with dates on them.

 

He still mourns for things lost in the Great Harddrive Crash of '03.

If you ever cook a ham, the bone, and some of the spare ham can be used for extra good pea soup.

@Thoramel, if I could like your post multiple times, I would. That was such a lovely thing you did for your old dog. Hope your back feels better soon!

Snow ...

and we have to take the cats to the vet. Most of the cats, anyway, they're due their checkup. The complaining will be epic.

 

Tons of snow here, fortunately I braved the insane lines at the grocery store yesterday so I'm fine staying home for the week if need be.  I really hope that the kids get at least a few days of school this week, though...  :unsure:

 

Sometimes I hate living in the convergence zone.
