The Winter Blues

I woke up this morning to see we got more snow over night. I am so ready for this white fluffy stuff to go away and open the door for spring. Winter is a little harder for me this year because I can't escape to the tanning beds this year and pretend for 20 minutes that I am laying on the beach somewhere, because it's not in the budget. I am not a fan of winter. When I was younger, I used to enjoy the snow. Who didn’t when you’re a kid?  I used to love skiing, sledding, playing in the snow and yes those occasional snow days of being buried in snow. But, I am a grown up now and I don’t appreciate all the snow like I did when I was a child. I hate bundling up in coats and gloves. I hate having to wear a coat period. I have to drive in it and you can no longer throw on your shoes and walk out the door. You have to start your car and let it warm up. After December, Mother Nature can keep the snow. I don’t want it. My daughter always says, "Ahhh... it's so pretty outside." I say "No, it's not. All the flowers and trees are dead. It's ugly outside." I would much rather look at the window and see the green trees and pretty flowers. Not piles of white fluffy stuff and dead treas.


  1. I agree! The snow looks so pretty when it's falling and is fresh...but after that it gets so dirty, brown, black slush bullshit and it looks like we've been shit on! HATE it...I can't drive in this shit...and so ready for winter to pass too. ugh!

  2. Brrr that makes me so cold just looking at it! Thanks for the follow! I'm following you back from

    Stay warm!

  3. I'm with you 100%. As soon as my daughter graduates from high school, the house goes on the market and we're heading south. I've even fantasized about opening a tee shirt shop in Belize. Won't care if I sell anything. I'll be warm.

  4. Sounds like a little bit of heaven Al. You got the right idea.
