Yep, you read that right folks…today is National Snowman Burning Day and I for one am SICK of winter. Granted, in the following video, the woman doesn’t set the Snowman on fire but she clearly gets her point across. I have watched this video at least a dozen times and laugh my ass off each and every time.
Because I for one can TOTALLY relate.
It seems like we have had snowfall upon snowfall since November. And as much as I love the fact that so many water holes that had been empty are now full, I am ready to put my swimsuit on and get in them, fish in them, boat on them, and camp by them, rather than just look at them on the news or from the highway.
I am ready to soak up some vitamin D in which my body has been lacking the entire winter and I do believe has turned me into
a psychopath an albino like zombie. **sprays the self tanner on her skin**
Now there have been a few days of this month that the weather has played with our heads. It’s even gotten up to 70*F, even if it was for only one day. But then the very next day it will be 32*F and snowing outside.
I don’t know whether to get the summer clothes out or just keep buying new winter clothes because my kids are all growing out of the stuff they have had since school started. **thinks of just setting fire to anything that has to do with winter in hopes that it will bring some spring juju**
And then there is that dreadful W word…no not winter…the other one. W-I-N-D. You wake up to see that the sun is peaking through the blinds and you jump out of bed to look outside only to find that your patio furniture is now upside down in a pile against the fence because the wind is blowing 60mph.
And who wants to go out in that?
You can’t even fly a kite because the force of the wind will whip it right out of your hands. Forget about doing your hair…even a messy bun can’t survive the brunt of those gail force winds. The dust blows in your eyes, down your throat, and even into places you didn’t know dust could get into while being fully dressed.
Then there’s the dreaded “couped up indoors with the kids” syndrome. You’ve pulled crafts off Pinterest, played 100 too many games of Sorry, and even done the unthinkable … MADE THEM CLEAN!
There actually isn’t any snow left in our yard right now so there won’t be any celebration of National Snowman Burning Day around here, but perhaps I could find a leftover stuffed one in the clearance isle at our local Wal-Mart and tell the kids we are trying out a new ritual to try and welcome spring.
Cheers To Spring,
