to winter janet.
it's been a tough day around here. one sign read 80 degrees. that's EIGHT-ZERO! february.
my heart is sinking as write this.
supposed to be only 73 tomorrow. whew -- so glad we are having such a cold front. my mother-in-law has to tell me today, "oh honey, it snowed here today." that's just salt in my wound.
now, you might say, "keep your chin up. surely, there is more of winter left." hmmm...you've never lived in north texas. once it hits the 70s, it'll never go back down. never.
so tonight, as i sit in my own depression, i will mentally prepare to say goodbye to her. winter janet, we hope you enjoyed your stay here, ever so short. we love you, and you will be greatly missed. go ahead -- pack up your sweaters. put away your cute little black boots. lock the closet door because there is no need for coats for a long time. and tell summer janet she's back in business. let her know that the season in which everyone throws caution to the wind with regards to "fashion" is upon us. go buy mosquito spray for big h. because every summer of his life, he has gotten that one mosquito bite that has led to a massive scar on his cute little face, due to his picking habit. i have no idea where he gets that. get out the sunscreen. put away the recipes for soup and casseroles. and look for the ones containing fruit and yogurt. get out the razor. better start putting it to use again. go buy "summer deodorant." you know...the kind that works even in the 41 straight days of 100+ temperatures.
ugh...just writing all of this has given me an upset stomach.
i realize some of you live where you get snow, and i have read your blogs. i know you're complaining because, what, you can't get out of your driveway or something? please. there is no sympathy from me coming your way.
all that to say -- let's have a moment of silence for winter janet's departure. we'll miss you.
p.s. and for those of you praying today, big h's haircut went fine. even though he now looks like he's 17. (yes, people were praying about big h's haircut. he's weird. i've said it before.) his last haircut was when the goo was 2 WEEKS old. that's how long it's been. it was time.
big h *WANTING* to take a picture with the goo!!!! this is HUGE!
