Baby It's Cold Outside

It snowed today. Actually, it's still snowing and, yes, it's after 1 in the morning, so technically, I guess this is the second day of snow. :) This is the second major snowstorm to hit our lovely state that generally receives very little snow. But we have somewhere in the vicinity of a foot out there.

You see, I don't want to go out there and measure the snow to find out how much we have. It's cold! I mean, it's REALLY cold out there...and I have no desire to even open the door. Does this mean I'm old? I mean, I know I have a birthday approaching, but I used to love to go out and play in this stuff. But instead, I just want a book and a blanket or a movie and my knitting and a blanket. Yes, there is a redundant theme here called "blanket". Something is wrong when you wear a long sleeve tshirt, a fleece sweatshirt, a jacket, and you're still cold...and you are INSIDE! :)

The thought of going North to Cincinnati in a few weeks is enough to make me want to moan and curl up in the fetal position and suck my thumb. Being cold is painful. I was working at my desk this afternoon (ok, yesterday afternoon) when I did the blonde thing and slammed my finger in the drawer. And I just stood there holding my finger and not moving because it hurt so badly. You'd have thought that I had just amputated it it hurt so much. But a cold limb being shut in a drawer is just...unmercifully painful.

So here I sit at my desk, in the warmest room in the house (because I finally ran out of things to put in the oven so now the kitchen is cold), and I have to leave my cozy niche to walk upstairs to the Arctic Circle so I can change from my layers of almost warm clothes into something that's been in a room that is anything but warm. Does this sound appealing to any of you, because seriously, I'd rather type out idiotic blog entries than to voluntarily subject myself to torture. I'm really not masochistic. But I am tired. So what's worse? Freezing or not sleeping? Ugh. Tough choice! :)

Very funny! So, as I don't see any more blog posts, I guess you decided to sleep? Did you change your socks so your feet would stay warm? (All this talk of changing in the cold makes me think of camping!)

Actually, I read for a while before finally being too tired and giving up and going to bed. Change my socks? Nope; I discovered that if you put a heating pad in the bed where your feet go, then go brush your teeth, your bed is warm when you get back and your feet get warm much faster! It's amazing! Who needs to heat bricks and put in the bed? :)
