I've Had Enough

Okay, seriously. I know I'm always blathering on about how much I love the snow, but I am so done with winter at this point. It's not just that it's snowing again today--it's that the wind chill is below 10 degrees again. I'm so flipping tired of the cold. It's too darn cold to actually go out and enjoy that snow that I love so much!

I've just had enough of it. Seriously. I've had enough of the snow/melt/rain/freeze/snow pattern that has been going on for so many months. I've had enough of cleaning off muddy, wet dogs every time the snow melts. I've had enough with the swampy mudpit that is our backyard. I've had enough of not being able to go on long walks. I've had enough of the insanely high gas bills. I've had enough of wearing the same warm sweaters and turtlenecks over and over and over again. I've had enough of our vehicles covered in sand, salt and muck--inside and out. I've just had enough.

Okay, I'm done complaining now. From this point forward, I'm going to make a deliberate effort to be thankful that I live in a climate which has four seasons and has the snow that I love. I'm just going to tell myself that the crazy cold weather we're having today will make the beautiful spring sunshine that much more wonderful!!

Amen to that! Although we're sad to be leaving Lawrence, I am not sad that we're moving to a place with much milder winters. They were all worked up in mid/late January when we visited because they'd had their first snow. We'd had how many snowstorms by then?

Although you know I'm thankful for your new jobs, I would probably rather that you stay here and be cold with us so we don't have to miss you so much! :(

I second what Kim said! I cannot, however, say I miss the snow. At ALL!! As a joke, James often tells me to "warm the elevator up" when we leave the apartment... ;)
