So, Spring Yet?

I make no secret of my dislike of winter. Yesterday, The Princess said to me, “Mom, I can’t wait until March 31.” (Um, that would be the 21st, I’m thinking….). “That’s when it’ll be the first day of spring! Then it won’t be so cold!” I went on to tell her that I won’t miss the cold of winter, or the snow, or the fact that the roads get so slippy-slidey when it’s snowy and icy out. She looked at me and said, “Um, the roads? Not my problem.” Then in a stage whisper, she added, “Because I. Don’t. Drive.”

Last night, we got slammed with some winter weather while Hubby and I were out to dinner. Rather than take in a movie too, we figured we better try to get home before the road conditions worsened. Overnight – they DEFINITELY worsened. And the temp? It definitely dropped. It’s so cold and nasty out, I have YET to get my Sunday paper out of the paper box at the end of the driveway. Hubby tried to leave this morning to go to National Guard, and spent 30 minutes getting not even ten miles away, so he turned around and (slowly) came home. At some points, visibility was zero.

Needless to say, we’ve been somewhat like shut-in’s today. Hubby has gone out a few times (actually, he’s working now. It is still tax season afterall). His second run of the day was to take The Princess out for ice cream – yes, it’s February and 0 degrees out, but none of her friends could play today and she was so tired of playing with Pumpkin, so Hubby went the sugar route. Of course, they brought a cappuccino home for me, so all was good.

I’ve had fits of productivity today – spending a few hours working, I spent 30 minutes on the treadmill, I worked out my glutes/quads/hams, I marinated and made an excelled grilled chicken burrito dinner. In the midst of my productivity, I was channel surfing. Did you know that Snoop Dogg has his own reality show? It’s not good. Not at all.

At this point, I am hoping for the weather gods to chill the hell out so tomorrow can be peaceful and calm. I have plans to take the kids out, and don’t want us to all be stuck in the house… AGAIN.

  1. My mom has been complaining about the weather FOREVER now (no big surprise…) and I know it really sucks. I just wanted to offer you some support because I truely hate God-awful Michigan weather. Um, in fact that is one of the major reasons I know longer live there.

    Hope it melts soon and warms up a bit.

  2. We’re supposed to get hit tonight. Not looking forward to it at all.

    And the Snoop-Dog thing is really disturbing. The tag line is something along the lines of This ain’t the Huxtables. Got that right, bud.
