We've done this:
|I don't even know anymore.|
GET YOUR ENERGY OUT, KIDS.
|What, did you think I'd not want to get in on that fun?|
|"we were never to color even one of our paper blossoms yellow."|
|Pictured: The tropics.|
|Can you feel that tropical breeze?|
So instead of posting any more frozen pictures may I present:
Throwback Thursday Cleveland Summer Edition.
These pictures were taken on August 24th of last year. So only 159 days ago.
|Look the little guy is outside! In the sunshine! Not buried under piles of "he can get frostbite with less than 5 minutes of exposed skin" blankets!|
There will be warm again. The sun will come out.
The lake will thaw.
And this winter isolation and cabin fever will end.
And I promise this summer I will never bitch about how "awful" it is to get sand in the car.
*So who else hate-watched Flowers in the Attic? Who else read that story as a preteen? And maybe a few other VC Andrews tales? I'm rereading it again now after a fantastic twitter discussion of the Lifetime version and I have some THOUGHTS. One of which is that maybe I shouldn't be reading a book about children being locked inside while literally trapped inside with my children. Although maybe I should just lean into this horror stories mimicking real life thing and read the Shining next and then NEVER SLEEP AGAIN. I mean my basement windows are completely snowed over... it kindof feels like the Overlook down there...
