Wednesday, April 9

You have got to me kidding me.....

That is what I thought as I drove into the UAA campus this morning. As I pulled out of my driveway before dropping the kiddos off at school, I was so depressed about how hideously brown my grass still is in the 2nd week of April. Spring is always sooooo slow in coming here.
Anyway, have you ever heard the saying "Be careful what you wish for?".....while I was wishing my yard didn't look so...uhm...YUCK, the Big Man upstairs had a little surprise in store for me.....


Let's just say my 42mile commute took me almost 3 hours & by the time I got home this afternoon my yard looked like this...........


I know I am really working on the PMA thing but this seriously put a damper on my mood............


Good grief it is the 9th of April........... I mean it was so bad that the University canceled late afternoon classes (yeah, I wasn't so lucky) & D's youth group was nixed too......in April people.......


I want Spring! I want green! I want flowers! I wanna wear flip flops! *okay...tantrum is over & I promise I'll try to behave from here on out*


And do you wanna know who is just LOVING this? The dog! Look at the crazy mutt! See all the prints in the snow on the deck? Those are ALL from her wallowing in the snow...............

On a more constructive note.....


I did manage to find something in the midst of this "Indian Winter" that cheered me up (if only just a tad)...


I don't think you can make out what the line I have circled says:

Bag refund -0.05


I got 5 whole cents refunded to me for taking my own bag to the store. I carry a Chico bag in my purse & I it! And mine is pink to boot!

I do it 'cuz I am sick of 10 billion plastic bags taking over my house. I do it 'cuz it is good for the environment. I do it 'cuz this sucker holds a ton......and now when I use it they are gonna give me 5 cents to boot! I love this! You know...if I did this like 2 million or so times, I could put one of the kids through college or something :)

Hey...just humor me here...did I mention how much stinking snow we got today?????

Hmmmm....I think my sour mood is screaming for a Diet Coke, don't you? Better yet, I think rather than putting my "windfall" (ya know the 5 cent deal) into a College Saving Plan, I am gonna start saving for my own Fountain Soda Machine for here at home.....now that would be cool.........

It scares me how much like Alaska our weather is and we are much further south. Let's just say that I can totally relate!

Our snow is almost all gone but I bet you $20 we'll get another dump ASAP to put a damper on the whole flip flop thing.

Every morning when I wake up, before I look outside, I whisper "please, let it be spring!" I think I may have gotten my wish, because it's been raining for days...but this afternoon we had HAIL!! *sigh* I want flowers and sunshine and leaves on the trees!!

Sorry for your yucky weather. I have to tell you though that it has been really nice here in OHIO. It's in the 60's and has been pretty dry. The dogs are diggin it too. Actually been working in the flower beds....uncovering all the new flowers that are popping up. Hyacinths and daffodils are already open. Hey now....watch it there.....I know what you're calling me......and I love you too.:)
