Snow Day: See Y’all When It Melts!

I will be able to accomplish absolutely nothing in my life until this snow melts. It’s like my brain freezes right along with the rain. I just want to stare at it. All day.


Some of y’all are probably asking, “Is it really that big of a deal?” The answer is yes. Yes it is. The best part of the whole thing is watching Maddux figure out what snow is all about. We haven’t had the “don’t eat yellow snow” talk yet, but that’s on the agenda.


I did try to teach him how to make a snow angel and he just looked at me like I was the dumbest person alive. He has a point. Snow is freaking cold. That was fun for all of five seconds.

We also practiced our acting skills. This is him portraying every single person trying to drive in the South. I think he took that tree out on his way down the hill. So, pretty accurate.

My parents came by and brought a sled over. It was serious business. I don’t know why, but the fact that he knew how to hold on to that rope has me rolling. He thinks he’s such a smartypants.

We tried all morning to take a family picture, but it didn’t work. Like, at all. Maddux threw a fit once, accidentally hit me in the face once, and then finally just turned into a limp noodle any time we tried to pick him up. You have to hand it to him, though, he sticks to his guns. No pictures, Maddux? Got it.


Now that the toddler is napping, I think it’s time for the adults to do the same. I’m the worst at taking naps, so I’ll probably just stare at the ceiling for ten minutes then get up, drink coffee, and stare at the snow some more. It’s obviously going to be a super productive day around here. Later on Ryne and I have plans to work out after Maddux goes to bed, but I’m not really sure what I want to do yet. Upper body and running sounds good, but so does watching TV and drinking hot chocolate. Decisions, decisions.

If you have a great upper body and/or sprint workout, send it on over! I need all the motivation I can get. See ya when the snow melts. ;)

    Sigh… I wish I could donate all the snow (and all the cold) from Minnesota to you. Seriously – yours if you want it.

    I just did assisted pull ups for the first time in forever at the gym 2 days ago and my lats are SCREAMING at me everytime I lift my arms. Fun.

    Also, not an upper body workout suggestion, but a lower body one: I also reintroduced wall sits to my leg day. And holy crap those babies are evil (just as evil as they were back in the day for gym fitness testing).

    We have about 9 million feet of snow here in Calgary, Alberta you can gladly have. Ok little exageration but feels like it. Can’t wait till my son is old enough to play in the snow and do snow angels.

    So fun! Great to see people (especially the kiddos) enjoying the snow after hearing everyone complain about it up here. And I’m with you on struggling through naps. Some days, if I’m doing anything, all I want to do is sleep, but then as soon as I get on the couch, I’m awake. Lame fest.
