Snowstorm

Well, just when I told you it was a beautiful, sunny and warm day yesterday....

We are now in the midst of good old-fashioned snowstorm.  It's falling fast and furious outside, we're expecting between 5-9 inches by the time it's done.  Oh how I loved our short lived warm streak.  Oh how I loved seeing patches of grass again.  Oh how I loved not wearing a coat.  Oh how I loved running errands.  Oh how good my hair looked without a hat on my head.  Oh how I happily put my boots away.  OH WELL.  

I will say, even though this is not what I wanted, it is gorgeous out right now and I'm wishing I were at home, in my jammies, for the rest of the day.  I will be soon though, once I get done working.  I'm so happy that I don't have to stop at the grocery store or go anywhere tonight. Oh how I love the weeks that I'm organized :)  Ryley will LOVE running and playing in this when Travis gets home!  And speaking of Travis, he is at work right now, also loving this abundance of snow.  His junior high winter retreat is this weekend...what great timing for that.  The kids will have tons to play in up north!  I guess there is something magical about snow, even when you don't want it. 

I'm claiming mind over matter today and I'm determined to have a great Thursday anyway!  However, if you live anywhere south of the Mason Dixon line, and your weather is above 50 degrees today, I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT!!!  

I love Minnesota, I love winter, I love Minnesota, I love winter,  I love Minnesota, I love winter, I love Minnesota, I hate winter....Whoops!!  That one slipped out :)
