We woke up to a big surprise this morning... SNOW!!
I'm a big grump bump when it comes to snow. It makes me nervous, anxious, angry, annoyed, and a handful of other not-so-pleasant emotions. It's the number one reason I ever wanted to leave New England. If it could be summer all year there, I would have stayed forever! After 10 years of 5-6 month long winters, I could go the rest of my life without seeing snow again. We were so blessed to spend the past two years in SoCal & Florida. When we found out we were coming north again, I cringed at the thought that we could possibly have snow. I guess making it to the end of January before seeing the first snow fall isn't too bad, though. On the plus side, I work from home now, so there's nowhere I have to drive to myself. :) When Brad woke me up at 5am to tell me he had to brush a few inches of snow off of the car, my brain automatically went back to panic mode like it used to in Vermont when I knew I had to face the 45 minute commute to work. It's so strange, but I couldn't fall back to sleep. I have to admit, though, I was excited for Norah to experience her first snow day. Turns out she loved it as much as we did. The poor girl got all bundled up for all of 2 minutes in the snow. Damon, on the other hand, was happy to be trotting around the yard.
