I think I may have mentioned it about a zillion times, but in case you didn’t know, I am so done with winter. At this rate, my city will be on track to beat a snowfall record. As it is, we are already at double the amount we are supposed to be at for an entire winter season, and we still have another 4 weeks to go(please let it only be 4 weeks). I used to think that snow was pretty, but not anymore. At least, not when I have to shovel tons of it into the space of about 15 feet. When you live in a townhouse, your places to put snow are very limited. In fact, look at our poor tree.
It is much worse right now after our additional 18 inches of snow we had over the past 5 days. The tree is almost completely buried. Poor thing. I keep saying that tree must have some pretty amazing roots, because it has survived 16 winters. Of course, most of them weren’t this bad, but still. What a symbol of strength.
So I have 3 major signs that I am so done with winter. Want to know what they are? Here goes.
- I get extremely excited to see my sidewalks/driveway. It has been so long since I last saw them. You think I am kidding? I am not. Today I spent close to 3 hours scraping and shoveling and scraping some more. Hello concrete, you have so been missed!
- I want to dance and sing and shout from the rooftops when the phone doesn’t ring in the morning signaling school is either closed or delayed. Today was the first time in 8 days! 8!! Needless to say, my kids were not at all happy when I came skipping into their rooms to wake them up at the normal time. Score one for Mom!
- You change all your wallpapers, FB pics, avatars to something that shows sand, sun, and beach. Seriously. I am in the process of changing all of mine in the hopes that Spring and/or Summer will hurry up and get here. After all, who wouldn’t want to be here?
So now that I have shared why I think it’s time for winter to be over, it’s your turn!
