No More Snow! – By: Hope

I can’t believe how much snow hit us this week, and there is more on the way! TIME TO MOVE TO A WARM PLACE!! Growing up, snow days were obviously the best! Nothing like, playing in the snow, drinking hot chocolate, and having no school.  At times unfortunately for me, I was stuck doing a fair portion of the shoveling.  I think that left a very bad taste in my mouth about the snow.  One of my parents was also never home do to their job so that made me dislike it all the more.  Then, when you are all grown up and you have to drive in it and go to work–yuck.  I should really try and find an outdoor activity that I would enjoy but I HATE being cold–this is something fairly new for me.

I started doing Bikram yoga about 4 years ago and ever since then I have not been able to tolerate temperatures below like 60.  Bikram yoga is amazing- the room is heated to 105 degrees and the humidity is set to 40%.  Some days it can be really juicy in there-for lack of a better way to describe it.  Other days, it’s not as bad. Anyone that does Bikram yoga has to DRINK LOTS OF WATER, TO STAY HYDRATED!  But this is why I hate the cold, and I have an immense love for the heat.

When I found out that I wouldn’t have to go to work Tuesday, I was pretty stoked.  I wanted to stay up late on Monday night to see if I could catch some thunder-snow in action, but that went out the window when I finished a bottle of wine and hit the pillow at like 11:30.  I wanted to get up fairly early as well on Tuesday because my boyfriend and I FINALLY HAD A DAY OFF TOGETHER!!  I did get up early-like 9:30.  I’m up at 5:45 every day so honestly, sleeping until 7:30-8 is a huge treat.  I made some coffee and looked out the door and my jaw dropped.  I hadn’t seen that much snow in a while.  All I could think of was “I need to clean my car off now so I don’t have to deal with it later.”  Nope, didn’t do that but I did manage to at least get some laundry and cleaning done.  Car cleaning and shoveling came later when the wind finally died down.  Eh, so much damn snow I almost cried.  I wish that I had brought my other bottle of wine with me to at least help me stay warm while I hauled 2 feet of snow off my car!

All complaining aside, it was nice to have a “freebie” day off to spend time with my man, and the feline. It was a great day overall.  We played Sorry and I won twice! Damn straight!  We had long conversations about life, childhood, pets, etc. We usually don’t have the time for just chit chat, it’s usually about something more specific- what to have for dinner, how the day went, stuff like that.  I do still stand to my original point, even though it was awesome to have the day off…TIME TO MOVE TO SUNNY, WARM DAYS!!  🙂
