NYC, Riverside Park, spring of '09
I have decided to ignore the fact that it is once again percipitating that wintery stuff here in the unsunny northeast. Even I, a died-in-the-wool lover of all things winter, am getting a bit tired of the whiteness. Mainly because we've had so much and there's no where to put any more of it!
Over the last two days, I've spent about two hours of each shoveling snow. I realized this was necessary after I went to get our mail and found I had to literally climb up and over the snow pile just to reach the mailbox. Didn't really think it was fair of me to expect our mailman to do that six days a week. The capper was watching our garbage man swing around our circle, take one look at the ginormous snow pile between him and our trash bins...and leave...
Have I mentioned that I am about as out-of-shape as one not-very-young-anymore gal can get? Well, I'm mentioning it now! Needless to say, Motrin is my very best friend!
Oh, and our town's school district is the only one in all of Fairfield County that is in session for the entire day. All the other schools are closed or having an early dismissal. Pooh!
But I'm happy...really...I am!
