Outside play time is not the only reason that I am ready for Spring. I am just not a fan of the cold weather at all. Not that it gets unbearable here but it's just not my favorite. Why do you think we live here? I really hope that nobody thinks my husband took a transfer from Minneapolis to Memphis because Memphis is a safer and better place to live. Nope! The cold weather up there was a HUGE factor! It could have something to do with the night that we went to Walmart and it was -35 (yes there is a negative sign in front of the 3 and 5) with blizzard conditions. We had no groceries, ya'll! Well...my first mistake was that I wanted to look all cute like some kind of snow bunny so I was wearing some leggings and my UGGS with a long sleeve shirt and a jacket. BAD choice! So you can assume that the 60 mph wind felt like glass hitting my chicken legs in those thin pants. That's not all! I sneezed before we got out of the truck and my eyes watered a little. I closed my eyes while walking in because the wind and cold hurt so bad and what do you think happened? My eyes froze shut! I was freaking out in the entry of Walmart. With my strong southern accent I kept telling Brian, "I can't open my eyes!" Now they did thaw very, very quickly but that just isn't right! Your eyes should not freeze while walking into Walmart! That was the first time that I realized I was not loving a upper mid-western winter! The seond time I realized it was a night that Brian was sick with a stomach bug. I volunteered to go get him some popsicles. I had NO idea it was supposed to snow. There were no watches, warnings or "breaking news" like we have here. I opened the garage and there was so much snow piled up in front of the garage. It was up to my knees. I suppose this is when these people break out the shovel or a snow plow but this girl closed the garage and went back in the house to make some J-E-L-L-O! If not for the winter, it is a perfect place. I can say that I have experienced it and survived it!
I head back to work tomorrow! I hope that all of you enjoy your weekend! Stay warm.
This is me waiting in line in APRIL to de-ice so we could take off. CRAZY!
It's hard to believe that little sweet little boy smacked me with a car in the face twice yesterday! LOL!
