Children have short memories

Sunday, November 04, 2007

Today we decided to finally get off our asses and clean the garage and the back yard in preparation for winter. We have already had two snowfalls which thank Gawd, melted within the day.

Last year, from the first snow fall that stayed till the last snow of the year was seven months 23 days. And that doesn't take in the snow that came and melted nor the horribly cold spring that meant we still had snow in May.

Mentally patting ourselves on the back, we walked from the back yard to the front, ready to go in and continue sitting on our asses - only to feel the first flakes start falling.

That was four this afternoon and it hasn't stopped.

Out of the mouths of babes, we heard "Tomorrow is going to be so much fun"

Fuckers. They have no clue what we are in for.

Sigh.

That's the beauty of a childs perspective. They are completely open to all possibilities while we remain jaded. Look at the snow the way they do...if only for a minute or two, before you have to start shoveling. Bet it takes you to a really nice place.

You crack me up.

We are lucky to get maybe 2 measurable snow falls in a season.

By March people are wearing sandals and shorts again.

Actually...they still are. Weirdo's.

When I was a PT SAHM I loved snow days - we did so many cool things...

Now that I have to go out in it no matter what - I dislike it...but I have 4x4 this year so I am kinda looking forward to it...
