What a drag it is getting…

Oh never mind… How can I be sick and tired of winter when we haven’t even *had* a real winter? But I am. I am sick of being cold. I don’t usually even *get* cold. I am an expert at layering. As I have posted before, I check the weather on my trusty old iPhone *before* I get out of bed. I know exactly what clothing to put on. How many layers, what kind of coat, hat, footwear, glubs, whether or not I’ll need my YakTrax. Or an umbrella. Or both. I am one of those annoying people who, when a friend is complaining about how cold it is when it’s 10 degrees and snowing, will point out, “You are not wearing a hat!” Why don’t people wear hats when it’s cold? Is everybody really all that obsessed with their dern hair? I insist on a wash-and-wear style. It kind of works. Except for right now when my hair is waaaayyy toooo lonnnnnng and scraggly. But who the heck cares what my hair looks like? Certainly not the folks I work with.

I have not been skiing yet this winter. I’m not sure if I will *go* skiing this winter. For the most part, there hasn’t been enough snow to ski on. Or there is snow but the temperature is above 30. I hate x-c skiing on slippery wet snow with leaves and pine needles on top of it. I am also disatisfied with my ski equipment. At least my boots and bindings. My bindings are a pain in the you-know-what to fasten and my boots hurt my feet. Maybe next year it will be time to reevaluate my ski equipment and get some stuff that I *like* to use. Why am I banging my head against the wall about this? I am not anywhere near the proverbial 1% but I can afford ski equipment. Anyway, maybe next year we will actually get some *snow* and maybe I will actually have some *time* to ski…

For now? Let’s just end this season. Despite the warm temperatures and relative lack of snow, it has absolutely, totally, utterly sucked camels’ you-know-what. And yes, you do know what.

Disclaimer… If you know me and might be worried about me, I am okay!!! Really. I have some things to worry about and endure and second-guess right now but I am doing my regular 0-skunk-30 walk and flinging and being productive at work, which includes lobbing friendly “insults” at the LSCHP when he deserves them. Life is like a river and although I can’t quite figger if my river is high or low right now, it is definitely out of whack. But that’s okay and I am dealing with it. I am reasonably certain that better, or at least calmer, days are in store for me eventually.

Love you all,
kayak woman

    Yeah, sometimes it’s just helpful and calming to have the weather cooperate–when the rest of life is pretty crazy. I KNOW!!

    The “Snow House” picture looks like a face – maybe an owl? Hang in there, and keep wearing your hat(s)! Love you…

    My husband doesn’t do hats, except in extreme circumstances—well, let me be honest: he’s getting a bit better about wearing hats….
