So, this morning, I was watching the news and suddenly saw something AMAZING!
I called to Derek to come and see. We watched together, both oohing and ahhing.
What were we watching?
Snow. Falling in buckets in Chicago.
I realize I have a psychological disorder. It's okay.
I miss the snow. I miss the cold. I miss hot chocolate and warm fires.
"Wanna hop a plane to Chicago and get a hotel and just watch the snow fall?" I asked.
"Sure, except I have to work."
Ahh, man, there's always something.
The highlight of the news was seeing that it was -26 in North Dakota. We were jealous.
I feel like we live in Australia. While all my friends in the north are freezing their tushies off, we're enjoying 65 degrees, cloudless and sunny.
We're playing outside all day long! And ya'll up north are frozen inside your houses.
See? I live on the wrong side of the equator.
But, in three months, your summer will begin and my hotter-than-heck season begins. THAT is when I migrate to the McDonalds playland on a daily basis. Because while you're all out enjoying the sunshine, I'm baking in the heat.
The grass is always greener on the other side, isn't it? Well, except here. Here, the grass is ALWAYS greener than it is at your house, because it's synthetic.
