white out!

wtf? this wasn't here yesterday

Oh like we needed more snow, what's with this? 30 cm folks - that's around a foot of unexpected snow. Go away snow, you weren't invited and we have no food or drink for you! Get off my doorstep! Ummm how is a huge weather front somehow unexpected? Did it just appear on the radar or was someone sleeping at the weather channel?

Right now I'm debating making Bumper walk to gymnastics which could mean that I might be lugging back a 25+lb (who has to time to weigh a badger?) in my weak girly arms.

Yes, my arms are girly weak but my legs could kick your butt from here to Kalamazoo (been there, but not done that - it was our pitstop on the way to BlogHer last year and while I didn't kick any butt there, I may have smacked Something Baby Blue's because it was so irresistible)

Not that I'm threatening to kick you or anything... what did you say? are you talking to me? stop looking at me like that.... okay that's it, lie down so I can kick you.

Totally getting off topic. Actually I'm not because there is no topic today (can I admit that... admit that I'm just babbling because I love talking to you guys, no seriously.... can anyone say CABINFEVER? Yes, nomotherearth, I'm talking to you).

Things are very whirling dervish around here, spin, spin, spin, spin - which contrary to the way it sounds, doesn't keep you warm or count as exercise. Parking a bag of Doritos in front of a whirling dervish cancels out any hope of caloric burn. Oh yes, did I mention the dervish is parked in front of a laptop? And isn't really whirling but more like slumping. But you know, slumping dervish just doesn't have the same ring.

I'm here and there but not really out there, more like behind my lovelies at the League of Maternal Justice and my homies at MommyBlogsToronto. Confused? Don't be... I'm just babbling.

So here I sit, debating the walk to gymnastics with a toddler who woke up at 5:30 am. And debating only making it as far as the pharmacy to pick up the essentials: like Cadbury Easter Cream Eggs toilet paper and coffee cream.

My hibernation idea seems better and better as the weeks pass. Oh and I must express my relief that baseboard cleaning is waaaaaaaay down (if at all) on everyone's cleaning list. But seriously, those dust beasts are plotting something, I just know it.

You have my sympathies. I am SSOS (so sick of snow). But I am also SOL as it'll be snowing here for weeks to come.

I hope the Creme Egg fairy comes to visit you.

Ali said...

take her in a sled.
that's what i do
and when i say i...i mean my nanny. but only because she's stronger! :)

Last nights drive home was treacherous. The snow looks pretty but I'm hoping for it to be all gone by mid March. Wiarton Willie promised us an early spring.

BTW - I believe it was because I was an easy target.

SciFi Dad said...

I'd post a picture of our snow situation, but it would be outdated by the time I hit Publish... still snowing here. ("Working" from home.)

nomotherearth said...

I'm trapped in a house with two abnormally small men. Send help.

And Cadbury Easter Cream eggs.

mamatulip said...

Holy crap, that's a lot of snow. We didn't get anywhere NEAR that much.

Kyla said...

Maybe you MBTers should move down HERE. It is shorts weather...or possibly lightweight long pants weather, depending.

kgirl said...

sick toddler
cranky mom

p.s. nomo just made me pee. that's my excitement for the day.

I have to admit that I'm a baseboard cleaner. But I promise that when I finally make it to TO, I will not even look at your baseboards.

Tracey said...

Sheeeeewww!!!! You ARE on a sugar high!! I say, skip the gymnastics. Most people probably are, anyway.


mandy said...

we had about 5 unexpected inches yesterday too and i was wondering what qualifies as unexpected... the clouds snuck around the weather people when their backs were turned?!!

we only need an inch of snow here before people start hoarding supplies and acting like they can't go outside for another 3 weeks... freaks.

Redneck Mommy said...


Wait. It's not nice to laugh at others.

But I'm just so damn glad your side of the country is seeing Mother Nature's wrath, after we've been picked on ....

You have my sympathies.


Chag said...

I am jealous. My kids have never had the chance to build a snowman.

crazymumma said...

Baseboards? I have fantasies of telling somebody who I pay to mark special attention to the baseboards.

But the white is pretty huh?

Queen of Shake-Shake said...

Pretty snow, but I do enjoy our beachcombing trips in February. Want me to mail you some sand?

Chicky Chicky Baby said...


We just got an inch or so. That suu-uuhcks.

Alex Elliot said...

I would go on the walk just for the Cadbury eggs!

Janet said...

Slumping dervish does not have the same ring. You are correct.

I am sitting here in my yoga pants, toddler napping, older kids skating with dad. I should be taking this quiet opportunity to exercise. At least my typing fingers are getting a workout, non?

the mama bird diaries said...

I was just saying we haven't had one snowstorm in new york city yet this winter.

I am hoping to keep it that way.

Although it does look beautiful in that photo.

Sledding, hot chocolate, snowmen... sounds a little magical.

Until I'm pushing my stroller through it trying to get my daughter to preschool.
