I'm such a positive, look-on-the-bright-side type person I just can't help it.
So yesterday's storm didn't turn out to be so bad.
Yes, it snowed all day.
Yes, it was unexpected.
Yes, it was APRIL.
Yes, I ate like a pig.
But there were some good things that came out of this. Some very good things.
1) These two
had fun bonding out in the snow. They trudged around the backyard, made snowballs, caught snowflakes on their tongues, made snow angels and had a grand ole' time.
TBone took care of the satellite dish problem all on his own (thank goodness it wasn't up on the roof).
Gty braved the storm to go get me some Dr.P, btw. Just in case you were worried about me/my sanity. He knows when he is needed and he steps up to the plate. Oooooooor, he didn't want to have to deal with me detoxing while we are all cooped up in the house. Regardless of his motivation he saved the day.
Also, JBird's baseball game was, obviously, canceled. I like watching his game but I also like them being canceled. Can't explain it.
We popped popcorn and watched TV/snuggled on the couch/read/did puzzles. I loved knowing we were goin' no where and no neighbor kids were going to come over and want to play.
Adult session of stake conference was canceled Saturday night. ::ahem::
It was Saturday anyway. It wasn't like they canceled SCHOOL or anything. That woulda been tragic.
And the best part???
Here is the only clothing required to shovel snow today after Stake Conference....
It was gorgeous today! You really stepped it up!! It's supposed to be high 60s tomorrow and creeping up and up until finally it'll be low 80s on Thursday. You certainly like to keep things exciting and spicy, don't you?
TBone wasted no time (changing into appropriate clothes) after church to throw his boots on and get to work.
But then it became more about building a dam in the gutter/raging river with the snow rather than actually getting the snow off the driveway.
They played out there for hours. TBone actually has a sunburn now.
So I apologize, Colorado. I know now that sometimes you know best. I'm sure our grass will be greener now because of this last bit of precipitation. And I would have had ZERO pics of the kids playing in the snow this year had it not been for this sweet surprise.
I will never doubt you again.
Lovingly Yours 'Til The Day I Die,
