Whine: Remember yesterday when I was so proud of myself for stocking up on food and stuff before our big snowstorm? I grabbed chocolate chips thinking, "what could be more cozy and snow day-y than making chocolate chip cookies with my girls?" Today I realized I don't have butter. Butter! I always have butter! I have three (open) packages of cream cheese, 2 jars of salsa, more pasta than you can shake a noodle at, but no butter. So it's handfuls of chocolate chips for dessert tonight! Oh well, it's probably butter this way.
Wish: I wish we could come up with a really good name for this blizzard. Snowmaggedon is pretty weak, Snowpocolypse is a bit better. My favorite so far is the Snowtorious B.I.G. But I still feel like we can do better. I've been brain storming all day with snow good ideas. I can't concentrate, my mind keeps going adrift. I'm feeling a bit (snow)flakey. You might say I have brain freeze. And you can take that to the (snow)bank.
Woo-hoo! Happy Groundhog's Day! Apparently little dude says Spring is coming early, although I think he's a big fat liar. If he were my kid I'd ground him. But I appreciate his piggy little effort. Happily, nobody in my house has gone stir crazy yet (I wish I was stirring my cookie batter like crazy, but what can ya do?) Although, just as I typed that last sentence Molly came in from the blustering blizzard and went straight upstairs and put her swimsuit on. ?!?!?! So maybe she's losing it. Or maybe she's just creating her own little Snowtopia.
My brother and his new wife are escaping this entire snowcapade as they are on their honeymoon in Jamaica. So la-tee-da for them. Because I wish I were in Jamaica and because these commercials are hilarious- here are some Red Stripe beer commercials for your snowtertainment.
