Where has the time gone? I'm not sure. I do know that winter has sucked the energy out of me. Who cares what a house looks like when you turn around, walk outside and see 9 inches of snow.
This is the south, darn it and although I've complained about this before, I believe it calls for more complaints.
Do you know in the south we put up with mosquitoes the size of horse flies. Horse flies the size of overgrown moths, no wait, slugs. Fire ants, yes, fire ants have moved to Virginia, Humidity that will knock you flat on your face. Conversation that includes y'all ya'll. You know all y'all. And never a hello but just a plain hey. Although I can't really complain about "hey". It sure shortens the amount of time you have to spend in a conversation.
Now, on top of all that, we have had to put up with snow. When we have snow, the city closes down. Just one inch, that's all it takes. Give us 9 and no one leaves their home for over 3 days.
Our city even stated they weren't even going to bother with the residential street. We don't have the equipment or salt to deal with side streets. So here we sat for three days. Our car covered in snow, no way to get out and frankly no where to go anyway.
I'm happy to say though that the weather is warming up and the sun is shining which gives me the energy to type, clean and generally do things I haven't wanted to do for almost 4 months. Except kill that stupid groundhog. I haven't even watched the Olympics. Call me un American but I've seen enough snow out my window to watch it on my TV screen. I'd rather watch old reruns of baywatch. That folks is a statement.
So, I'm going to try and see if I can blog some more. It was good for my soul and my sarcastic side which David is frankly getting sick of. It has to go somewhere and he's a good vehicle as any.
I do want to tell you the tree story but now I've got to look the darn thing up so for now.
