Hey, you people out there, it is still winter! I do not like it one bit. Everybody better start praying for spring. I have not counted the days but a friend of mine has it on her face book page. For those of you out there that do not have a computer, that is my number one survival tool. You know I love to talk and I can communicate too much. At least that is what the Hubby says. But back to the problems we have right now with the weather. It is hot one day and cold the next and before you know it its really cold. You know there is a difference. That cold goes all the way to your bones. After being outside, you come in and you can’t get your bones warm. You “old timers” out there know exactly what that is
My number two survival tool is my phone. I know every woman in the world has a phone and she knows how to use it. Men are catching on because I see a lot of them with a cell phone on their hip. . I bet all the phones are getting a work out during this winter weather. I hope you all are checking on your neighbors to see if they are all right.
Books are number three on my list. Man have I read the books. I am sure all you ladies out there know about that. You know men don’t read very much; not as much as women. You see I notice everthing. You better watch out cause old TG sees everything. She might catch you out and about sometime.
Of course you know I suggested that you get out your recipes. Well, the Hubby said, “would you please stop cooking; I am getting fat as a pig!” So I slowed down on that so I really don’t know what to do next.
Finally I found the most wonderful survival tool in the world. I hate to say it but men don’t do this; it’s a “WOMAN THING”! You guessed it, SHOPPING! I thought I would just go look at spring and summer clothes; that would cheer me up.
Well, ladies I will tell you right now that was somewhat of a mistake. I purchased some undergarments, won’t tell you what because a few men might read this column. I doubt it but anyway, I won’t mention what it is. Then I looked and looked and found nothing. Oh, I almost forgot, I tried on a bathing suit. That was the wrong thing to do. When I told the Hubby about this he said, “I bet that was a pretty site”! As usual that’s when the fight started. You see all that cooking seemed to settle in one place; like all over me. One more winter and I won’t be able to find a suit big enough. I guess you know I did not purchase a bathing suit. Then I happened to think, what woman fishes in a bathing suit? Not a real fisher woman. You knew I would have to mention fishing. Hang in there people, fishing will begin real soon. I know a lot of “die hards” are out there on the lake but I won’t even mention what I think about them. I bet their wives were glad they were out there. At least they weren’t home gripping about it being winter.
Anyway on to the shorts department; they had none! Said it was too early. It’s funny they had bathing suits and no shorts. So I just purchased a shirt and came on home. The Hubby said, “Is that all you bought?” Can you believe a man saying that? Usually they are fussing about how much money you do spent.
So the next day, he suggested he would drive me to another shopping center! That tells you he is bored “out of his mind”! He doesn’t do winter very well. Anyway, I did not find a thing. So we left and I came by my favorite shopping place Wal-Mart and the Hubby said “now you take all the time you need”! I nearly died of shock. I asked him if he was sick. He just smiled and took a nap in the car while I was in the store. You guessed it, I went in and picked up about eight things, didn’t even try them on. Took them home to see if they would fit; I do this because you can always take them back if it doesn’t fit. That’s what I love about Wal-Mart. As I was getting in the car, the Hubby says, “Since I did such a great job driving you around, how about treating me to lunch? I knew there was a motive behind the offer of taking me shopping.
Once again we are home complaining about the weather. I am sure you are doing the same. I can remember an “old timer” telling me one winter when I was complaining, he said, “just wait you will be complaining it is too hot pretty soon. I guess we can’t be satisfied. I know we will make it until spring, we always do. Doesn’t matter what Mother Nature does
Hope you are doing whatever it takes to stay warm and happy because we only have this moment.
Till next time, hug your Hubby, your friends and neighbors. Use that telephone every day; tell everybody you know that you love them and when you get out of the house “shop till you drop”!
