She's late...

Normally, a day or two isn't anything to get worried about. But when you start getting into weeks, and months, that's not a good thing. It's downright scary. It affects your plans, both long and short term. Uncertainties reign supreme.

Awakening to a powdersugar dusting of snow this morning, I realized there's nothing to worry about. I found it funny that on the day of our first bit of snow, my heater kicked on for the first time. (No, I won't tell you what it was set at... you'll think me crazy.)

Yep, Winter is here...

At least you have heat. My furnace doesn't work and though I have a 2 year old in the house, the damn vendors still haven't come out (none of them!) it is going on 2 1/2 weeks now.

Holy crap!

Even though the "baby factory" has been closed around here for the past 7 years and I soooo knew that it *wasn't about me* I got anxious just reading the beginning of this post! :)

Whew! (And we are running the furnace around here for the first "real" time this season as well -- it was bound to happen eventually....)

"Winter is here...."

Ya think?!?

Holy Shit!!!!!!!!!!

It's 19 flippin' degrees. I may never leave my house again!!!

Oh, and as winter arrives - so does my whining. ;-)

It *is* rather cold. I even had to wear a fleece pullover this evening. Brrrr...

YOu know... when I was in Atlanta with Mo and Sissy, we left a restaurant and I got so cold I thought I might die. I got in the car, teeth were chattering, I was shivering and cussing and saying, "It's going to f*&^ing snow. I'm GONNA DIE!" Sheesh. I hate it when it gets to 58 degrees. It makes me miserable and cranky.

It's rather chilly out here on the left coast as well. On my drive from LA to San Diego this evening I actually had to turn the AC back a bit from full blast.

It did get a bit chilly with the windows rolled down though.

Hey, I was standing on my front porch wearing shorts smoking cigaretts lastnight.

Most of my time spent outside, I was wearing a flannel over my t-shirt. Not buttoned or anything, just hangin' as a jacket. But in that wind... I had to throw on the Carhartt. 4 degrees with windchill.

I'm ashamed. I used to only wear a jean jacket or that flannel for most of the winter.
