In spite of what the calendar says it definitely is not spring in Minnesota. I am thinking it may warm up around the 4th of July. It snowed a bit over night. Northern Minnesota had a massive ice storm that is forecasted to leave up to an inch of ice in its wake. It is cold and shitty.
This is the suckiest spring break I can remember the kids having. They haven't left the house because of the rain, now the cold.
I should just turn this blog into a weather update blog. In Minnesota the weather controls every one's lives. It really is ridiculous and seems its all people talk about. "Nice day today huh? Is it warm enough for you? Just wait until August when we are complaining about the heat. It could be worse." Yeah it could be worse but I'm tired of worse and no I won't bitch in August. I will plant my ass on the deck under the umbrella and soak up enough warmth to get me half way through January. Then all bets are off again.
At least we are getting some spring cleaning done during the kids break. Who am I kidding? I have cleaned the kitchen several times a day, vacuumed at least a hundred times and picked up enough books to make a library jealous. Basically all I have done is followed 3 kids and a teenager around the house making threats and begging them to please cut me a break and clean up after themselves. I have told the teenager 4 times already to put the syrup and butter away after he made waffles. I wonder if losing his phone will entice him? Hmmmm. I would take the computer away but I spent an hour this morning trying to wipe away the viruses he installed last night. He has already lost that sucker.I was thinking of running away but I would have to come back at some point and then I would really have a mess to clean.
