|Extended forecast. Seriously??|
My apologies. I’m afraid I’m turning into one negative Nelly here, but I honest to goodness cannot take it anymore. Each week when I try to write about my weekend, all I can think about is the things I’ve missed due to freaking cold. This weekend....
...the fake tanner I’ve been applying is beginning to wear off in strange like patterns. I thought I had dirt on myself, and then I realized that’s what it was. It’s holding me over for a while, but I’m ready to get a little bit of a real tan. Just a little. Pretty please.
...I was supposed to go with my fiance to watch one of his former players make his first college pitching start. I seriously wanted to go. Sunshine and baseball sounded like the perfect March activity. Then I woke up with another sore throat (Seriously? I just got over being sick like 2 weeks ago.) and realized it was 45 degrees, with a wind child of about 36. So I didn’t go. [Insert sad face.]
...our pool cover became so weighed down with ice that it actually fell into the pool. It’s been hanging by a thread for a while and we’ve been wondering if it would survive. It didn’t. The
water ice underneath is clear as can be too. Darn. Opening should be fun.
...I thought about getting a mani. Ya know, just to make myself feel better and because I haven’t had one professionally done in over a year. Unfortunately the dry bitter cold has led to hangnail after hangnail. Every time one heals, another pops up. If I’m paying to have my nails done, it had better be relaxing, and any girl that knows the searing pain of chemicals in a small cut at the nail salon knows... there ain’t nothing relaxing about that!
So that’s my weekend recap. Arctic vortex, if you can hear me, I surrender. Please retreat promptly and let us have spring! I also promise to make my next post more lively, so please don’t write me off yet ;)
