Well, Christmas has come and gone. Just that fast. I got an awesome present. A nasty, gross, disgusting cold.
I'm feeling better, pretty rough around the edges, but better.
But, I feel like I missed the whole holiday.
I was here but fuzzy.
I barely remembered to take a few photos of present opening on Tuesday. Dinner and dessert were mostly taste-less. And my joy at surprising my husband and son with presents they didn't know about wasn't as much fun when I felt like shit.
Luckily, in my family, we believe in the 'more is more' policy. Why have one Christmas when you can have 'MORE' than one Christmas?
Well, we are supposed to have 'Elevenses' on Saturday but it may have to be slightly postponed due to a storm that is coming with another 1-3 inches of snow to go with the few inches of snow and ice we got on Wednesday.
Now, I live in NY. Snow is completely normal. I was raised here. I learned to drive here. Everyone, like me, should be able to drive like human beings in the snow.
But, every year there is a whole section of the population that have a complete meltdown at the first sign of a snowflake.
You've seen them. They hear a storm is coming and they can't stop talking about it. They question everyone around them about how much accumulation we might get, should they leave earlier, will everything close?
They flock to the food stores and fill their shopping carts to the brim in case they get 'snowed in' for more than a day.
They run to the home stores and buy out all the shovels and sand and ice melt. (My husband and I always wonder what they did with last years shovel?)
When they're on the road and it's flurrying they drive ten miles under the speed limit.
They hit a slippery spot and they overcompensate to the 'enth' degree and put their car in a ditch.
OR, they drive their four-wheel drive vehicle like a battle tank and forget that ice doesn't care they have four-wheel drive and they put their SUV in a ditch.
These people we try to avoid at all costs. They will ruin your day. They will try to hit your car. They will cause long lines of traffic when they put their vehicle sideways or stop in the middle of a snowy hill.
It's just better to stay home and wait for the tow truck drivers to remove all the idiots off the road before we come out.
So, maybe we have 'Second' Christmas next weekend.
How was your holiday? Did you get what you asked Santa for?
Ever been on the road with similar crazy people?
Excited for any College Bowl Games?
