Maybe then? Maybe then I would like cold weather?
I've been to your blogs and have seen all your pretty snow pictures, but I honestly don't know how y'all live with it...for months.
It needs to hurry up and get warm here again already. I cannot stand being cold. I don't want to even go downstairs in my house when it is cold. I'm sure there is a scientific reason it is always 10 degrees colder down there. It makes me not even want to shower...and it is upstairs where it is "warm".
On Tuesday morning, our first "ice" day of this week, I jumped up to get everyone changed, milked, fed, and dressed so we could rush off to Lily's preschool. The 8:30 start time is killing me. Before we left, I glanced in the mirror to see that my hair was in need of a serious washing. It was cold enough to wear a hat, so I thought I'd throw on my little GAP toboggan. Doesn't 80% of your body heat escape through your head? Something like that.
Oh my. I am so not cute in hats.
So, I threw it off not caring what I looked like. Greasy hair vs. not being able to pull off the toboggan look...well, it was a toss up.
It didn't matter anyway. The streets were empty and all the schools were closed. Even though it was just cold and dry. Note to self: if there is a threat of any form of cold precipitation even in the not so near future...watch the news, Kerry.
We had a true ice day yesterday, and although we opted not to slide down our driveway in laundry baskets, we did make a quick run to Kohls where Lily totally busted it in the parking lot. I know her hiney is sore.
Then I did my own little diddy this morning in the Kroger parking lot. It was one of those times that I am positive it would have looked much more graceful to completely fall over. But I held my own and slid around like an idiot without biting it. I think I even made some sound effects too. How embarrassing.
That's when I got mad at the cold. I mean, it has been cold for days on end. How do y'all do it for weeks and months at a time? I would be a very bitter person.
I think I had my fill last weekend when we spent 4 hours outdoors as the temperature hovered around freezing. As a Christmas gift to my father-in-law we got tickets to go to the Texas Rangers Fanfest last Saturday. I am not even a Rangers Fan. Definitely not a fan of the cold. But I do love my father-in-law...and spending hours in the cold was not going to detour him from celebrating his favorite team.
Sure, there were indoor activities...like a quick jaunt through the locker room and the hall of fame museum, but everything else was outside. We ran the bases, caught pop-ups, pitched in the bullpen, got autographs, sat in the dugout and Lily enjoyed all sorts of interactive inflatables (one of them was manned by Mr. Hart...anyone remember him...our old JHigh principal?).
It was so cold. Toboggan worthy cold.
See how cute my girls look in their toboggans?
Even my hubby and father-in-law can pull the look off.
Jerry handed me mine in the car and I put it on without a mirror in sight.
It even looks goofy from the back...I promise I don't have any front shots.
Actually there was one taken in front of this scoreboard. Thank goodness it is safe with my mother-in-law.
Maybe I just don't know how to wear it. Probably need to pull it down more. Is it possible that my head is just oddly shaped? I give up.
Jade's toboggan even compliments her as she sleeps.
We're headed to the stock show and rodeo this Saturday...maybe a cowgirl hat is the look I need. Of course by then it is supposed to be 70 degrees. Praise His holy name.
