We are are going to the local tree farm and tagging our tree today. Then next weekend we will come back and cut it down and bring it home. That's what do out here in the northeast.
I can't believe we have not had any snow. I love, love, love snow. Although, I am not fully looking forward to ski season since I am not going to fit into my new ski jacket that I bought last March on sale because apparently 8 months is just not long enough for me to lose 10 freaking pounds. Also, I feel so fat and out of shape that I actually can not imagine myself put on all my winter shit and clunky ski boots and actually trying to maneuver my body down a mountain while also trying to keep up with my 2 boys who think they know how to ski, but really don't...if you can not stop yourself when going 50 miles an hour down a mountain, you don't know how to ski...Honestly, I don't know why I thought skiing as a family would be a good idea. Yup, let's drive 2 hours and put on freaking snow suits and big ass boots and carry around tons of shit that is inconveniently shaped (skis=very long) and drag children who complain about being tired after one run down the mountain and then spend $20 on candy at the overpriced candy store in the little village and then lug all the shit again back to car to drive 2 hours home. All the while, Tom bitterly mumbling about how we should never have bought the ski passes and that we all (me and the boys) basically suck (he does not actually say that, but I know what he's thinking.)
So yeah, anyway, I love snow.
