No more excuses

With snowpocalypse, snowmaggeddon, and clusterfuck 2012 now over, there’s no more excuses. I have to get shit done.

(courtesy Seriously, if this wasn't a cluster fuck, I don't know what is.

I’ve had PTA stuff I was supposed to do over 3 weeks ago. Donation piles I’m supposed to take to Goodwill. Bills I’m supposed to pay. Laundry that is waiting to be washed. (Owen hasn’t had clean socks in two weeks, but he’s easy going that way.)

Last week, despite The Shining-esque type of days where the snow kept falling, the lights flickering, (for some have been out of power for days so I have nothing to bitch about) and the never ending wet sloppy boots, mittens, snow pants hanging over the vents to dry merry go round I was doing; it was kind of nice to blame it on the snow.

Kinda like what I looked like wandering the house for 4 days in my long johns.

A sampling of my excuses:

Gotta drop off those PTA certificates- oops can’t, the school is closed.

Gotta mail those bills- oops can’t, out of stamps and hubs won’t let me take the minivan out in the snow.

Gotta make dinner- oops sorry, mac n cheese three nights in a row since Amazon Fresh won’t deliver.

Gotta do laundry- oops better not run the washing machine in case we lose power mid cycle and then the clothes would just sit there and rot.

It was fantastic! I ate popcorn and watched Kardashians for three days straight with Emma. We painted our nails, baked cookies, watched Harry Potter with Owen. Drank Old-fashioneds. (me and James did, not Emma)

(courtesy What's better than a Kardashians marathon during a snowpocalypse? Between, Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kourtney and Kim take New York, and Khloe and Lamar, there's always plenty of episodes on E! (Producers are looking into the next round of franchises; Kris takes on Menopause, Kendall and Kylie go to prom and Bruce finds his balls)

Now the streets are clear despite the 3 foot piles of black snow along the curbs. The gym is open and calling my name. School is back in session, Owen’s going to need fresh socks eventually…

Crap. I’m out of excuses…

wakey wakey mama bear. The cubs are restless. Is it spring yet?

  1. Excellent post! LOVE the Jack Nicholson photo too.VERY nice (“Wendy…I’m home” and we ALL know that “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”). CNY has had a fairly mild winter this year, but the average snowfall is @120 inches. I’m not quit to three days of the Kardashian siameese twins yet…but maybe by February. Great post. Thank you!

    I saw the weather reports and thought of you. One or two snowdays are fun anything beyond that gets old. Then u get freezing rain!? I would be drinking all day!

  3. I would just like you to know that all of your excuses make perfect sense to me. Perfect. Soon it will be spring and Owen won’t even need those socks. Problem solved.

  4. eh… there’ll always be tomorrow. It can wait.

    Really, that’s not me. I’m one of those ocd types who washes and hangs shirts as soon as I take them off, and organizes email on an hourly basis. Geez, I think I’m hating myself now… vicariously through you.

    Hey where have I been!? I think, for some reason, that you may have drifted out of my mind until like… just now. It’s good to be back. And good to be missed, as I’m sure I am. 🙂

  5. We don’t get Snowpocalypse’s here in NC – at least not usually. But that doesn’t stop me from procrastinating. I like to wait to the very last day to renew my car registration and then play the great game of hoping that the renewal comes in the mail in time before I have to drive around illegally. Quite the thrill.
