Make a snow angel in my pjs.
Last Thursday night was our first "big" snow of the season. Two months from now a snow like that one will be child's play; lame and not a big deal. But seeing as it's mid-January and we're just now seeing white on the ground, it's pretty exciting.
After a long day at work, I had safely made it home in the storm and parked myself in for the night. I ate dinner and bundled up in preparation for shoveling the sidewalks. After spending enough time huffing and puffing outdoors, the walkways were cleared and I locked myself in the house to thaw out. A bath sounded perfect right then. So that is precisely what I did; I drew an incredibly hot bath and plopped myself in, melting back to room temperature.
About an hour later, there I was on the couch; every muscle in my body relaxed and ready for bed. Glancing over to my left I noticed that my phone was lit up. Text messages from Mel. Picture messages. One by one pictures of her in her pjs gearing up and heading outside flooded my screen until finally I "got" it. She had made a snow angel in her pjs! One more "thing" done! DANGIT!
I was SO relaxed! And WARM.
Me: I just took a bath and am all relaxed.
Mel: It's the first snow! I JUST TOOK A BATH TOO!!!!
Here it is, #79 on our list; my third "thing"...
A few words from the wise(er):
- tie your hair back. My long hair froze solid/stiff. It was pretty comical.
- have a fried take your picture, it's very difficult to get decent pictures of yourself in a FLATTERING manner, while making an angel...
- Live life and ENJOY it! Do things that force yourself to look stupid once in awhile!
