Sitting by the fire, nursing my aching back, legs and shoulders. Watching the endless coverage of what the TV is calling “The Blizzard of 2013”. I guess they couldn’t get themselves to talk about “Nemo” without giggling.
Here’s what I think of this winter wonderland.
Now that I know that my kids are safe and that all three have power, I’m ready for a nap! I couldn’t sleep last night, because I felt guilty being warm while they were cold!
Now that I know that my Mom has power and has been plowed and shoveled out by her wonderful, incredible neighbors, I am ready for a good long nap. After I fretted about my kids at midnight, I fretted about Mom at 2AM!
Now that I know that my brothers and sisters and their spouses and kids have power and heat and light, I am ready for a nap. You can guess who I was worried about from 3-4 AM…….
Having a big soft couch right next to the roaring wood stove is the BEST. Maybe I’ll nap here.
Knowing how much snow there is to shovel, I spent two hours this morning digging this out:
Right after my nap, I intend to get in there and soak. Maybe with a glass of wine in hand.
Its a good thing I baked that incredible chocolate cake yesterday; I need the sugar boost to finish the shoveling!
And you know what else I think?
I liked “hunker day” better than “shovel day”.
It will be OK with me if we don’t see the front walk until June. I’m perfectly happy to use the garage door as my main entrance!
And finally, I really love my dogs. They constantly remind me that there is joy to be found in every situation.
Be warm, be safe, and happy hunkering to everyone who has experienced the wrath of Nemo!
