What has it done for me lately?
Snow Day at home. A lot of TeddyJ stayed home today, because Saint Louis had our official first significant snow accumulation. I stayed home too, with my laptop and my Scooba and my lunch of lime tortilla chips.
Dog-Pee Free floor. After the dog asked me the fourth time to let him out, I began to wonder, what is the big appeal of peeing in the snow? Perhaps he doesn't recognize the yard. Maybe he thinks we've moved to a new house with a white yard he must mark.
Leaf Cover. No one knows Mom has the least kempt yard on the street.
Refreshing. The snow reminded me that I live anywhere but Emen-Yay. Did I hear the name of that country enough times today? It was like the tell-tale heart. Ye-MEN! Ye-MEN!
Birthday Reprieve. The KC Contingent of the in-laws will be staying in KC this weekend and not driving through the snowy scenery to celebrate their birthdays. Oh, you say, maybe they could fly instead? Ha. I'm thinking not. See above.
Moments later: Because I saw this right after I hit send ... this is what I SHOULD have written.
