Talking About The Snow

Last time I checked, I had three boys. That's 27 months of being an incredibly uncomfortable pregnant woman and roughly 34 hours of labor. 23 years of accumulated gray hairs. About 7 trips to the emergency room. 9,357 hours of lost sleep and still counting. So I ask you................
Why in the name of Zeus's butt hole did I just shovel the driveway?

The dog tried to help but she's fighting a losing battle, no opposable thumbs. Look at the poor thing, her koochie pop is buried in the snow and she's still peeing like a trooper.

Taking my life in my own hands I ventured off to work Wednesday morning after Mother Nature dumped a foot of snow onto Northeast Ohio. Dumped in a short amount of time. Which makes traveling hazardous. What usually takes me 15 minutes to get to work took me an hour. I should have gone to the bathroom before I left. I don't remember ever driving in such bad conditions.
Nothing got done at work because we were all talking about the snow, those of us that made it in. We were sent home at noon. And then this morning we wasted another hour or two talking about the snow. Tomorrow more snow is expected. Where's my heating pad?

I only have one boy, very able bodied, and I often ask myself that question. I don't know. Give the dog a few extra biscuits and make the boys wash their own laundry.

I have two girls. They think the dishes wash themselves.

Oh I love snow - ofcourse I only see it once a year if it snows on my annual vacation trip to new york. But then again i haven't been to new york in 2 years...

hey if you need a break check out my "crazy night at the fair" it's better than driving threw snow...

pooping in winter is harder than it looks- you squat in the cold cold snow which makes your *hole pucker and close up tighter than a prom night virgin but at the same time youre trying to push out last nights dinner- opposing forces.
so thats why sometimes it takes a while; your patience is appreciated!

oh, and about the picture, cant a girl get a little privacy?!

I hope not. I hate shoveling snow.

Jen - The dog got a few extra biscuits and I don't know if I will continue to feed those boys.

Ora - Modern technology has spoiled these children.

Dad at the fair - You don't know what fun you are missing.

Nooter - I never said it wasn't difficult! LOL! We humans are in awe of your squatting in the snow abilities. Oh and the picture, yeah I heard about it all day from her.

UR - Yes, there is another system headed our way, that's suppose to be worse than this last one! Get your shovel ready.
