It is only 10:30 and I have to go to bed - not because I'm tired but because I can't stand being this cold for one more minute.
And really, I'm much too busy for this. I was in the process of adding all the addresses I've recently been emailed to our contacts list - but typing with gloves on does not work.
And this afternoon, when we were actually home for a whole 1/2 hour before we ran out to do the next thing, I had to turn on a movie for the kids and sit in the tub. Not to relax, wash my hair, get clean, or even shave. No, I did none of the above (I didn't have time). I just filled it to the brim with hot water and immersed myself up to my ears for a good 5 minutes. Just to get my body temperature back up to a normal and acceptable level.
It is also very difficult to do much of anything when you are forced to walk around the house wrapped in a blanket. YES, I am dressed appropriately for the weather. I have on 2 shirts, a sweatshirt, my fleece jacket, my wool socks, and my slippers.
And how many cups of Hot Chocolate can one girl drink???
I love you - but I am FREEZING. Possibly to death.
Ok, not to death - but to serious levels of grumpiness and inproductivity (did I just make that word up?)
To everyone else:
Today is the first day the MN winter really got to me. So I made it to December 12th. Nice. I've only got about 5 months to go.
But really - I was all over town and back today and the highest the temperature ever got was 8. That does not include windchill folks (which my husband says is just a way to exaggerate how cold it actually is). A good portion of the time it was hovering around -1. And let me tell you. My face just hurt. And my kids were crying, saying they were turning into icicles and getting frostbite (I really don't know where they get this stuff).
Ok, I'm done complaining.
(But mostly just because I had to take my gloves off to type this post and I can no longer feel my right hand)
So yes - the issue in our marriage is...the thermostat setting
At least for the next 5 months.
To my husband again:
Love you hon : )
Really I do
Which is why I posted this on the blog - so you could imagine me saying it in whatever tone of voice you'd like to hear (that and the fact that I hardly ever see you). Yes, I'm that good of a wife : )
Can't wait for our date tomorrow night!
(Somewhere warm please!)
