You've Got To Be Kidding Me

After two days of a scratchy throat I decided to take a closer look. So, I walked into my bathroom, opened wide, and aimed my book light (in lieu of a flashlight) into the back of my mouth. The image staring back at me in the mirror looked remarkably like this:

Ew. I have strep throat.

Funny part is that I had excellent insurance coverage until my job ended on Monday. Three. Days. Ago. Are you kidding me?!

Why is it that you never need insurance until you don't have it?

Let It Snow....

I think that I am the only person in Minnesota who isn't sick of winter.

Maybe it's because I've successfully managed to avoid the really cold weather (we're talking 45 below zero, folks) by being in CA or AZ. Maybe it's because I like watching the big fat snow flakes fall to the ground while drinking hot coffee. Maybe it's because I spent the last couple of years in a constant state of summer bliss. could be that I can be a full grown adult and still enjoy playing in the snow.

Last night I bundled up in all my snow gear and headed outside for some good clean fun. Here's my snowman (albeit he looks like he's doing the 'Pepsi wave'):

And my snow angel:
The funniest part is that my brother came outside and goes "Are you bored or something?"

I might be staring down the barrel of 30 but dang it, I can still play in the snow like a little kid!
