Okay, so you know how I am all kumbaya and so zen about hibernating in February?

So, I have been so happy about doing nothing. See, the thing is-I get paid even when I don’t have to work. So, these snow days, have been super sweet. I was so excited about being under the covers and watching tv. But there is no tv in my room. Then I realized after looking at Cox Contour on my iPad, that there was nothing good to watch. So I went to their on-demand and it wasn’t working. So, I watched on Amazon, the Americans. But that got too gory. Then I realized I wanted/needed to read the Bible and then I got sleepy. Then after I couldn’t sleep, I got up.

You get the point. All of this bundling up like an Eskimo, and looking at the picturesque snow is great. But I am quickly getting bored. My daughter has a class every Wednesday morning with other church members who are grown ups, but she loves it. She informed me that her throat hurt, so she slept until 10. Then, an Ash Wednesday supper that we were helping with got canceled. Obviously my morning job got canceled because my kid got to sleep in. I was dreading the day as far as how I was going to fit 7 or 8 steps in to make it to all of our events and responsibilities. But now that she only has piano, I am somewhat bummed.

This relaxing and doing nothing thing was great for about 6 weeks after being sick for 3 months in the fall. I mean I was in and out of urgent care, trying different antibiotics, and just could not feel better. Then, once I did, Christmas was over and the big play, I felt better. But all I wanted to do was sleep. My body needed it. BIG TIME. Okay, I think I am all caught up. Darn that Punxsutawney Phil. I normally grin and bear it during winter.

But even though I am not bathing suit ready, I am more like a super long cover up ready, I embrace my chubbiness enough to get out of this weather! I may have 20 pounds to go to feel decent lying by the pool. But to heck with it! Maybe I will lose that much by the end of May. Maybe I will lose 30! I don’t even care about that right now. Me and my Eskimo jacket body is ready to get warm and take walks and ride my bike.

Hope that you are staying warm if you are in the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic like we are or even worse, the frigid Midwest. Have a great week. Maybe if we all think Spring, everything will thaw out sooner than predicted:)

I have tons of education and don't use it! I am non-traditional and traditional rolled into one person. I am a Christian, but need work! I am conservative fiscally, but I could care less who someone marries. My favorite things to do are: hang out with my kid, watch movies, read, write, sing, dance, love, live life to the fullest! I love: my kid, my cat, my best guy D, God, rain, chocolate, Christmas, friends, cats, animals in general, honesty, avocados, love, Hallmark channel, iced coffee, Harry Potter, NYC, England, Italy, D.C., Paris and autumn.
