Friday morning it happened…..the straw that broke the camel’s back. I woke up at 4:30 am as a result of the dairy and the breadcrumbs in those tasty meatballs from the potluck the day before. I noticed then that there were flurries outside, light and fluffy…barely sticking. Even when I woke up again at 6:09 it didn’t look bad. Sometime between then and when I left a bunch of snow fell. They kept saying on the news that the main roads were just wet….wrong! They were horrendous! I even watched a state hoopy sliding on the main route while trying to turn to get to an accident. That’s when I announced to the Universe out loud “Ohio….I am breaking up with you! I am not doing this another year!”
Later that day the sun came out and when we were leaving the big doctor said “the sun finally came out” I said “that’s because Ohio is trying to make up with me because I broke up with it this morning.” He looked at me kind of funny and said “you’re coming back Monday, right? We need you up there.” He’s such a cute little guy….I am 100% sure that I could be easily replaced but he or his wife never make anyone feel that way.
Ohio continued to be on it’s best behavior on Saturday and even Punxsutawney Phil joined in…an early Spring? I saw robins on the way home Friday and I saw them yesterday and even today when I was out for a hot minute. I don’t get too excited until I hear the mourning dove coo.
The Girl and I tried to get most of our running around done on Saturday. The only place we didn’t go was Sam’s Club….I never saw so many cars. I forgot about the Superbowl. It didn’t matter much…around 3ish my nose started. Force of Nature Girl who has been sick on and off since New Year’s finally contaminated me. “it’s just sinuses” she said. I had to go out today because I took my last Aleve D sinus and cold. I guess it’s helping some? I look like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer for sure!
I didn’t do too much after that….the necessary laundry..etc. I did redo one of my dressers ….three out of the four drawers are folded in a way that Marie Kondo would be proud.
I probably laughed too much over this.
Now I am ready to take another Aleve D so hopefully I will sleep tonight. I will chase that with my homemade elderberry syrup and fill my diffuser with Breathe. I have a naturalist class after work tomorrow so calling off isn’t an option…..Zia
