The Blizzard That Wasn't
What a LONG week it's been! Last Monday, we started preparing for a blizzard. You know (or maybe you don't, depending on your location), the one that didn't happen. Oh, we got some ice, sleet and snow, but thankfully, not the amount that we had been warned about. Needless to say, we were stuck in the house for a couple days. Even my husband got a day off of work.
During that time, the power cord on my ancient laptop stopped working and I have been without Internet since last Wednesday. Talk about feeling isolated! Between that, the weather, and the pregnancy hormones, I've seriously been concerned about turning into Jack Torrence. I'm just thankful there isn't an axe laying around the house.
So, who's ready for spring? I swore I wouldn't complain about the weather this year, that I would accept that we have to get through winter (no matter what it brings) to enjoy the spring. I can't take it anymore, though. I need sunshine and some warm weather. No amount of vitamin D seems to be helping. I've also been putting more stock in the groundhog that anyone should. Hopefully, we have warm weather ahead. Especially for those who have had it much worse.
