Two things I thought when I walked outside this morning…..
1. It feels warm today! It’s 33 degrees outside. Do you know how depressing that is????
2. I LOVE the sound of melting snow. It actually makes me feel a little evil. Like…heeheehee…the snow thought it was going to get us but now it’s melting…melting…bahahahahahaha! (In my evilest laugh possible) I kind of see it like I am Superman and snow is my Lex Luther! Arch enemies to the end. Ok, maybe that is a little extreme but seriously I hate this crap and could not be happier to hear that drip, drip, drip that indicates it will soon be GONE and warmer weather is coming!! In my perfect world 50 degrees isn’t warm but compared to -7 it’s a freaking heat wave!
I have always hated winter but I hate this winter more than I normally do. I’m not really sure why. Maybe it’s because it makes everything so much more difficult and because me, Jim, Tyler, Aaron and Bennett are always stuck in our house, bored, staring at each other….and in turn my house is always a mess and I don’t feel like doing anything other than napping and reading so house cleaning is out. By spring we will be on one of those house cleaning shows where the British women show up with their rubber gloves and petri dishes. And to top it all off….I am wearing SOCKS! I even wore shoes to work every day this week. I took them off as soon as I walked in the door but still. Even my boss today said it was sad that I was wearing socks again because she knows this NEVER happens.
Winter just makes me sad. It’s so dark and gray. I don’t understand people when they say they love winter. It makes no sense to me. How can you love something that is dark, cold and gray all the time. Yuck. Maybe those people are vampires….there’s an idea! Give me some sun, warmth, flip flops…… I am ready to kick my kid, “husband” (for lack of a better word) and 150lb dog out of my house without them dragging in enough snow to make a river in my kitchen or having to spend 20 minutes bundling and then arguing with Tyler while he screams “NO HAT!!” at the top of his lungs.
There are a few things I actually like about this time of year though (only a few and I had to think REALLY hard)….blankets, coffee, soup, football sundays, and cuddling. Yep, that’s it. And all of those things I would rather do in the SUMMER!!!! 🙂
