Baby It's Cold Outside!










Well, I do believe that Old Man Winter has arrived. We had our 3rd snow storm of the season this past weekend and I will have to say that while last year I loved it every time the white stuff arrived, this year I am somewhat over it. Maybe, it is because last year I got to stay home in my warm and cozy house and this year I have to get out it in and drive. I am not a great driver and have been known to mow over mailboxes, back into parked cars and take out sides of garages. All of this in sunny FL weather. I am not ashamed to admit that I am a terrible driver and would be happy to have someone else drive everywhere I went. Well, you can imagine my confidence in driving on snow and ice packed roads. Thankfully, we purchased a big ol' SUV which makes it much easier for this FL driver but I would still rather stay at home. In addition to our SUV, we also now own a snow-blower. Never in my life did I think that we would have one of those in our garage but it is there and according to my man it makes clearing the driveway and sidewalks much easier. Well, the good news is ski season is just around the corner which makes the snow-storms worth it for me. I am now the owner of my own skis and boots and I hear the slopes calling my name. Happy Winter to everyone!

hee hee. I originally laughed thinking we hadn't had our snow yet. But then quickly caught my arrogance as I remembered that we will have snow and no sunshine for months to come. {sigh}
