I have a cold today. 'ish. A sort-of cold. It's been coming on for days. I've been fighting like a hero to keep it away from myself. This means lots of emergen-c, etc. And it's really not much of a cold. It's mostly a headache and lots and lots of sneezing. That's it? Headache + sneezing? What's up with that? Fortunately, instead of teaching Julian to say "bless you" or "gesundheit" (<--which i totally should have done--parenting fail) I taught him to say, "Aaaaaatchoooooo!" after we sneeze. I kind of feel like it's an applause, which I appreciate.
But still, what kind of cold is this? not that i'm complaining, but still. Weak attempt, virus. Weak.
It snowed again this week. Only about 8 inches. This would be a decent snow if we hadn't had "Snowmageddon" over Christmas. Or our "Snowpocalypse." These are terms used to describe the big storm and i like them both. What a snowtastrophy it was. Everyone was in emergensnow mode. The city's attempt to clean up and plow was a total fiasnow (<--stretch).
Aaanyway, one of the annoying things about when it snows is that Julian and I are stranded. a) he doesn't walk and weighs that of a baby walrus. b) the stroller just doesn't work in the snow. Which is why I need THIS:
Are you kidding me?!? These things exist?? I was halfway finished mentally inventing it when I decided to google "snow stroller" and found this. Whyyyy why oh why do i not have it?? And for the record, if i had invented it, i'd have called it a snowller. My friend Sarah who lives in B-town, has cross-country skis (jealous). Can you imagine if i had skis with this snowller? DANG.
I also want this, for the record:
DANG. why do i not have these things?!? Human being FAIL. ohhh that i had a time machine.And that's about all i have to say right now. I'm going to go quasi-rest, maybe take an almost-nap so I can get better from this lukewarm. *publish*
