Let It Snow!

snowflakeWord has it that we may get somewhere between 6 and 12 inches of snow tonight.  WHEEEEEEE!

I know, I know, I hate winter.  That is because I detest being cold.  However.  If it MUST be cold, it might as well be pretty doing it.  So I say BRING ON THE SNOW!

I know, the timing is rather inconvenient, being that it is 5 days before Christmas and most of us are not exactly primed and ready just yet.  Oh, you are, are you?  Well phbbbt.

I’m no where near ready, although I am certainly more ready now than I was on Wednesday at this time.  In the past 48 hours, I have braved three different shopping malls as well as CVS and Kohls.  I am TIE.YERD.

So back to my snow.  The neighborhood has been all a buzz because if we are going to be snowbound, we figured we should make the best of it.  Meaning we need to be stocked up on gift wrap, cookie-making ingredients, and of course wine.  In other words, the essentials.

Assuming the kids will be outside playing in the snow all day and will go to bed early (wishful thinking, I realize), I invited some of the neighbor ladies over for a gift wrapping party tomorrow night.  We did this last year, and it was great fun.  Hey, if you’re a neighbor, and you’re reading, come on over around 8:00.  That would be in the PM, of course.  If you arrive at my door at 8:00 in the AM, you will be in for a rude awakening.

Meanwhile, it might be a good idea to drag the snow gear down from the closet and dust off the old sled.  WOOT!
