Today is Funny Friday but I have nothing funny to post. My brain is frozen solid.
This. Winter. At first it was exciting and fun. We played outside a few times and I even bundled my kids up and took them out by myself during the week.
My daughter has been sledding a few times and we’ve enjoyed our fair share of hot chocolate and marshmallows, indoor play dates with friends and crafts that involve too much glue and glitter. I used to love winter but friends, I’m over it.
I haven’t seen a blade of grass in almost 4 months. My fingers are permanently damaged from the negative temps we have been exposed to over the last few months. I am wondering if I will ever see a flower in bloom or feel the warmth of the sun again. WHY does it have to be SO cold?!
And the illnesses this year. One of us always has a runny nose. We’ve had the stomach bug that left me unable to even look at a picture of Panera’s Mac and Cheese. I need to move on now because I’m turning green just thinking about it.
I have lost all my energy to do anything. My house is a disaster. There are toys EVERYWHERE. We still have our Christmas lights and wreath hanging at the front of our house. Guys I can not even crack my front door to take that stupid wreath down. It is too cold, I’d rather just look at it under “spring”. If that even exists.
I’m so sick of wearing snow boots and winter coats. It takes us 30 minutes to leave the house, even if we are just going through McDonald’s drive through to get lunch because we have no food. I miss the farmer’s markets and trips to get ice cream. And playing at the park…oh the park!
Come soon spring!! Actually, forget spring. Bring it SUMMER! I’m ready for 90 degree weather, heck…I’ll even take a little humidity. I promise to be outside everyday. Take my kids to the splash park at least once a week. Do tons of zoo trips and picnics. We will go on so many walks I will burn holes in my shoes.
And if I ever, EVER complain about being hot this summer. Someone please remind me that snow is always right around the corner in this fine state of Michigan (aka- the North Pole).
Now excuse me while I chase the penguins out of my garage.
