Go Ahead And Jump!


This was Lael yesterday morning jumping off of a snow hill hubby shoveled.


We don't get much snow her in DC.

I mean it snows but not snow.

I remember when I was in '96 we had a Blizzard.  It was all of 16-17 inches.  To some states I know that is nothing but to those of us here it is.

For the last few years we've gotten and inch here and there but nothing to hoop and hollar about.

So Friday when everyone had their panties in a bunch about the apparent "snow storm" that was going to come through and sweep us away I shook my head and giggled.

When I went grocery shopping after work and had to stand in lines all the way down the aisle, I cursed under my breath.

But it came.  A storm like we haven't seen in years.

It started about 8pm Friday night and didn't stop until around the same time Saturday night.

Hubby shoveled and a few hours later it would look like he had done nothing.

Everything shut down.  I big plans for Saturday.  None of that happened.

I had HUGE plans for Sunday (Radio City Tickets).  Didn't happen either.

I had plans to go to work today and have my work Christmas Party.  Guess what? I'm home.


Because they closed the Federal Govt today. 

I'll be finishing up my shopping and wrapping gifts because Lael will be with her grandmother today.

Happy Monday yall!


  1. My thoughts - if it's gonna snow, it had better be worth it and that looks like it was worth it!

  2. That is one happy girl! Bummer about all your plans. I hope you get all your shopping and wrapping done today.

  3. Wow, how fun is all that snow? Come on, at first it is. And then after a few days...

  4. I'm glad it snowed! :)

    Gift wrapping can be so stressful to me. lol

  5. We got snow in our area too, this year. I was so excited.

    If we had enough of it, I would have jumped in too.

    Hugs and Mocha,

  6. Keyona!! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!

    May 2010 be filled with many blessings for you and your little princess!!

    Hope your pregnancy is going well!! *hugs*
