I don’t want a check for a million dollars

Just yesterday I commented to Tim, “Wouldn’t it just be crazy if we went all winter without anymore snow?”  See, we got a nice dose of snow at the beginning of December but it all melted about a week later and hasn’t snowed since.  I wouldn’t be heart broken if we went the rest of the winter without snow.  The only purpose for snow, in my life, is for Christmas and, since Christmas has passed, we have no need of snow!  I know, bah humbug.  But I don’t ski, I don’t snowboard, I don’t particularly enjoy sloshing around through a slushy, nasty parking lot as I try to get myself and Abbi from the car to the grocery store without breaking my neck.

Okay, back to the comment I made to Tim about a green winter.  So just six hours after I made that comment we looked out the window and our lawn was covered in white snow.  It’s nothing compared to how Colorado got slammed but it’s snow.  I should have just kept my big mouth shut and silently enjoyed our oddly warm and mild winter.

I’ve done that before — made a comment about how something is or isn’t going to happen and then the exact opposite happens.  I often say how there is no way Abbi will go down for a nap and then she does and sleeps for three hours.  So, I think I’m going to go check my mailbox for that very large check that they uncle I don’t know about didn’t send me.
