Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. What a week. All of that shoveling has wiped me out, but that's okay, because BDH and Little Buddha say it should be a little while before the next snowfall arrives. What's on tap for the weekend? I'm not entirely sure what we're doing, although watching "You People" on Netflix and the NFL playoffs is on the schedule. There may be some extra running around, so if we're not here over the next two days, we'll be back by Monday at the latest. Are you ready to check out... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? We're all fine, although I'm still recovering from yesterday's shoveling. The forecast originally called for 5-7 inches of snow, and then I heard an upper limit of 10 inches. We ended up getting over 14.5 inches of the heavy stuff, so that was a workout. I put in about three hours yesterday before finally throwing in the towel. However, the snow was still coming down, so I have to do one more round after we're done here. Hold on, BDH and Little Buddha are telling me another 5-8 inches are coming tomorrow afternoon.... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? Weekend going okay so far? Yesterday's shoveling went pretty smoothly. We got about six inches of the heavy stuff, which is always a workout. However, I was able to clear out the driveway before it turned to ice, so that was good. I was a little tired by the end, but nothing too bad. BDH and Little Buddha said it's a good thing I feel that way, because the next round is coming tonight. That's a shame. However, it is January after all, and we were overdue for this sort of thing. Now, let's check... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? BDH and Little Buddha are working on today's to-do list. I think it's just the usual errands, but we'll see if they come up with anything extra. (They're real taskmasters, you know.) Yesterday's shoveling was no big deal, and now it sounds like I could have skipped it altogether, because today's highs are supposed to be in the mid-40's. I'm not sure if we'll make it to the bookstore to check out the new releases today, but the guys say that's fine. They're still working on their current book. Anyway, let's get to work. There's...

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were right - we had time to take care of all of yesterday's errands and still make it to the bookstore. To make things even better, I found something for them to read! Their new project is tackling Prince Harry's memoir, "Spare." They're excited to get started on it. Plus, to top everything off - there are new "One Chicago" episodes on tonight, so really, we're humming along at the moment. Of course, the day starts with checking out the headlines with all of you. There's a fresh pot... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back. How's your week going so far? The car still wasn't ready last night, but the mechanic said it would be all set first thing this morning. I'm looking forward to finally tackling some of the items on this week's to-do list. I just have to walk over to the garage when we're done here. That's a little bit of a hike, and BDH and Little Buddha just told me the the windchill factor will be about 11 degrees. Yikes, what is this, mid-December or something? There are no new "One Chicago" shows on tonight, but that's... Read more →

Longtime readers know that the Clutter staff runs on Dunkin', and we would not be able to write our posts without that first morning cup. (Note to DD HQ: You owe us for 13 years of free publicity.) Years ago in another professional life, we used to buy a medium or large with milk and sugar, once or twice a day. However, we switched over to black as part of "the great diet reset of 2014." It was just easier on the body. We also mostly limit our choices to French Vanilla or Dark Roast. No fancy flavors for us,... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? I'm feeling much better after a full night's sleep, thanks. I was out cold about 30 seconds after my head hit the pillow, and now things are back to full speed. Unfortunately, the bookstore was a bust yesterday. I was thinking Matthew Perry's new memoir might be an option, but that comes out next week. There are no new "One Chicago" programs on tonight, so maybe BDH and Little Buddha will work on the last book I bought them for a little while. Now, let's take a peek at the headlines. The guys...

Hi everyone, You're back! That's outstanding. How are you? This week seems to be flying by for some reason. Actually, September as a whole came and went in a flash. BDH and Little Buddha say it's because we've been so productive. I like the sound of that. We're preparing the office for the cold weather, before the spike in our utility rates arrives on November 1. Some windows are being wrapped, and some of those insulation strips are being applied in key locations. The boiler has its annual maintenance appointment soon, and I think we're also getting a fancy new... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? Week going okay so far? Things are fine on this end. No luck at the bookstore yesterday, but at least BDH and Little Buddha still have a ways to go with the one they're currently reading. That should last us until at least next week. Plus, the guys are excited that NBC's "One Chicago" shows are on tonight, so they're all set for the time being. Today's to-do list is a little on the long side, but it sounds like the weather should be nice, so that's good. Now, let's get to work. There's a... Read more →
