I thought I would start this up because we are tending to clog up other threads with non-thread stuffs. Feel free to drop in, have a cup of , and relax, vent, happy news, general junk going on in your area. I know it's starting to get winter up here in Minnesota, and I don't travel w/that white crap on the ground, so it's nice to keep in touch with other areas of the MidWest (and beyond). So ... yeah... HI! How are ya'll doing? It's 30 degrees here, snowing, and I'm 25 miles away from my boyfriend on his birthday. I just want to go home and snuggle with him!
