Enough of this


Today is December 15.  Midway through the month of December.  It was 72 degrees today.

If we had snow, this would be applicable.

I changed my header today because it’s probably the only snow I’ll see.  Earlier this year during Snowpocalypse life was fantastic–we were trapped for nearly a week.  I have food and toilet paper in my house so things were fine.  If the electricity went out that would surely have sucked, but we have a gas stove, fireplace and blankets.  I would be happy to just have cold weather at this point.

I blame this guy.

There are scores of of people who would love to have my weather and if they never saw snow again it would be too soon.  But I miss snow.  I miss playing in the snow.   I grew up in Illinois where there wasn’t just snow, but SNOW.  Will my kids ever know the delight of a snow day off of school?  Or how about being old enough to have a snow day and driving perilously on sheets of ice to go somewhere, anywhere other than school?

My windows are open.  This week I made a huge pot of chili, and while it was good, it felt like a farce.

I don’t know how I’m going to get through this.

Potential self portrait.

5 year cycle


So, I think it snows in Atlanta like, every five years or something. It was super pretty!


We didn’t get to play in it because it was crappy and it didn’t stop snowing until it was well past dark. Josh was so not interested in it anyway. The good news is that it did stick AND freeze so I got a snow day! Yay me!
