A man of color MUST be officially taking over the nation today...*edited*
Because it's snowing in Raleigh!!! I mean real snow with actual depth and everything! Normally when the meteorologist say snow nothing ever happens. Maybe some ice or a light dusting, but never snow! By golly them jokers actually got it right this time!
It was supposed to start around 10 last night, so when I got up a lil after 12 to handle some restroom issues, I took a peep outside and there was nothing. When I got up to start the day at 5 I looked and saw the white stuff! Just like when I was in grade school, the first thing I did was check to see if school was closed or delayed. Who would have thought I'd be out of school and still checking! LOL! Once I confirmed that Pooka would not be going anywhere today I hopped my butt back in the bed. Two hours later Pooka is shaking me talking about...
"Mommy, I think you better see this"
I informed her that I knew all about it and that she didn't have school today. She went straight for the couch and started watching her DVD's! She's been there ever since. LOL!
It's supposed to snow all day and part of tomorrow. We haven't had real snow in years!!!! Pooka and I will be getting ghetto fabulous and using tote tops to slide down the hill later! YAY! You can't really see our hill in the video cuz everything has that pretty, white, undisturbed snow look, but it's there and we are going to disturb the heck out of it! LOL!
My angel making an angel.
Pooka's first attempt to slide down the hill, as you can see, it didn't work so I went in the house, grabbed a trash bag, put it around my tote top, sat on it and viola, this is what I got!
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! That was fun! Unfortunately I must of hit a button while traveling because I didn't get the fit of giggles I had when I reached the bottom! :-( It wasn't until I got to the bottom that I realized one very important thing about the pretty calf high boots I had on...they don't have traction at the bottom!!!!! Pooka had on some fake me out Timbs with traction and had a not so easy time getting back up the hill. What the heck was I gonna do? I tried multiple times in multiple ways to get up the hill and let me tell you, if someone was taping me they certainly have an entry for America's Funniest Home Videos! Sidenote: If you're my neighbor and you have a recent video of a big girl sliding down a snowy hill repeatedly, then please by all means, if you have the tape, submit it! I'll split the winnings you 50/50 LOL!
I ended up having to take off my boots and go up in the next best thing, my socks! Needless to say my time outside in the snow was done once I got back in the house! ROFL! Pooka attempted to slide down the longer, less steep part of the hill with success, but by time she sat on the ghetto sled she was on the move. I couldn't turn the camera on fast enough :-( After the third trip up hill Pooka was ready to go inside too! Thanks for snow mother nature, you helped me get my cardio in today! :-) Seems like Pooka and I will have another day to play in the snow if we so choose to. Because schools are out again tomorrow, I do not drive in icy or snowy conditions, prefer to keep Mia basically damage free as long as possible, and the news talking about how the police/troopers and EMS are having a hard time keeping up with the crashes...we staying home! I hate to lose out on another days pay, but oh well.
I was looking up something online, (PS ARgal,I looked at the US of Tara, I LIKE IT), and came across this and had to share! OMG! I was almost in tears! LOL!
