There are times when i want to just put some thoughts down so I don't forget. This is going to be a long boring post, but I want to get it down so I don't forget.
We have had so much snow this winter. Last year we had a "snow drought" and I was terribly disappointed. I have learned the lesson of "be careful what you wish for" before, so I know this, but still...
I was thrilled and couldn't sleep for the first snow. i was giddy for the second snow. Then we got our 3rd snow on December 19th. We got a bunch, and we got to have a White Christmas. Loved it! Oh yeah, December 19th was still not Winter yet. Should have figured it out, and headed south! But I LOVE snow, so here we are. We got a few snow falls in January, then got THE BIG ONE. Just as we were digging out we got another 12 inches on top of the other. That was when we hit a wall. No more snow, please! We have tried playing in it, but it is too deep for Miller and he just heads to the street. It is just not fun trying to keep him out of the street. Can't blame him, there is still about 2 freaking feet of snow out there.
Yesterday was President's Day and Allen was home. So I had a dream about building an igloo in the driveway. So out we went into the driveway to try and build said igloo. It ended up being more of a cave with 2 entrances. I think it's Da Bomb. The boys, notsomuch. Jackson wanted real doors and lights and Miller wanted to hit the road (with no gloves, please). Thanks for playing mom, but the whole snow thing is just a ploy to get Hot Chocolate.
So we came inside and took off all the dirty, wet clothes that it took ages and such a hassle to put on. Shortly thereafter I had a break with sanity. All I can say was that it was not pretty. I then decided that it would be best if I took a nice hot shower and had some retail therapy. That made it better. Sort of.
Because you know what? There is still 2 freaking feet of snow outside. I still have to walk across an ice rink (or call it the sides of my driveway) to get to the car. All parking lots are dangerous because half the spaces are filled with plowed snow that's about 10-12 feet tall. I could go on and on.
Did I tell you that Jackson has been to preschool for 2.5 hours in February? I didn't? Well, now I have. Hallelujah for preschool tomorrow!
There are about 5 weeks left until Spring and I have a feeling this is not the last snow we will have before all is said and done. The forecast is showing flurries here and there, but I would not be surprised if we get another big one. we will see if I am of stable enough mind to handle it.
Next of my random posts will be a detailed description of our trip to the Burger King Playground. Just so you know, desperate times call for...The King!
