what I hate about winter
I wonder if I can get my DH to consider moving to someplace like Arizona?
I don't hate the snow--now that I actually have snowboots, I like the snow.
I don't hate the cold--now that I have a down coat AND a down vest, plus a Tibetan hat, I'm actually warm, so I don't mind it.
I don't hate the shorter days--it's easier to go to bed at the end of the day, because wind-down starts earlier.
I don't hate the shoveling--mostly because, since I live in an apartment, I don't have to.
No, I hate the STUFF.
The snow boots, the down coat, the down best, the extra-warm Tibetan hat, the waterproof nylon gloves. TIMES FOUR!
You have to PUT them somewhere. And I don't really have anywhere to put them, esp. the damned boots.
But it's not just that you have to have boots--it's that you still have to have shoes TOO.
So like today, when the kids had to wear their boots to walk to school, we have to jam BOTH shoes AND sneakers into their already overloaded backpacks.
I wanna move somewhere that I don't need four kinds of outerwear, just two or three. But I guess I'd probably still end up w/ rain boots, huh? Although, since I'd drive everywhere, maybe I wouldn't really need them?
