Winter’s Mean

We are finally getting a break from the Polar Vortex/Arctic Blast mess from the last two weeks.

Winter is cold but rarely this cold.  It was 5 degrees with a windchill of -7.  This is Pennsylvania…not Minnesota!

We had snow, ice and freezing rain.  I’m pretty sure we have hit every type of precipitation there is to out there.

We even were able to make artwork from the frost that grew on our storm door.  The truth is out there people!  It was so cold that we didn’t go out much at all.  The dogs hated it and so did we.

There was even a snow day.  In Adult that  just translates into work-from-home.  I tried to drive to work but the roads were very dangerous.  It just wasn’t worth it.  My boss thankfully called and said stay home as I was going back home, lol.

One good thing we did discover was the laundry room is long enough to play Cornhole.  It was nice to have an outdoor activity to do indoors, lol.  We had to move the snow shovels and boots but good time had by all!

Happy New Year

2018 has been rough going so far.  I’m just hoping that things will only get better as the year moves on.

I have so many year long goals for myself.  I believe they are all attainable but really…who knows, lol.

One of my big goals is to read more than I did last year (borrowed this from the wife).  This is definitely doable because I only read 17 books last year.  They were mostly Murder, She Wrote books because, you know, I’m obsessed.  This year I’ve started with the Murder, She Wrote theme again.  I got two MSWish books for Christmas so of course I had to start with them.  First one was the Autobiography of Peter Fischer who was Executive Producer/writer for the show.  Found out some interesting little ditties about Hollywood and Television on the 70’s and 80’s.  I’m following that up with another MSW Mysteries book.  Believe it or not I did receive other books for Christmas, lol.

Another resolution is to lose weight, you know, like everyone else, lol.

I really want to live in the moment and not stress about everything too.  Not sure that one will happen because, let’s face it, I’m a Virgo.  It’s in our nature to worry.  I’ve decided to leave some of my life decision to the Magic 8-Ball.  It never stresses 🙂

I hope you are having a good 2018 Internet.
