I felt it only fair that since I complained so much about the cold that I should praise the warmer temperatures we are now experiencing. Today the high is supposed to be 25 and tomorrow 30. That is a 60 degree difference in less than a week!!! I never imagined that weather would play such a big role in my life until I moved up here. Now I check the weather website daily and its almost the first thing I talk about with every one I know. At least now my son can go outside. I think he and most of the other kids in Alaska are experiencing some major cabin fever.
Here's to hoping that we have seen the last of -30 for this winter, positive thoughts :)

The Mantra

I love Alaska, I love Alaska, I love Alaska. At least that is the mantra I repeat to myself on days like this. I just got back from walking my son to the bus stop in -21 degree weather. My thighs are still frozen and my eyes are leaking the fluid that froze on my very quick walk. Mornings like this make me miss California even more than I already do, but I remind myself that I love Alaska, but lately Alaska is not returning the love! The weather man promises that it will warm up to a blistering +20 by Friday, I fear that if it doesn't warm up the weatherman might be run out of town(maybe to somewhere warm?) and I might be leading the charge LOL

Ok once again say it with me I love Alaska, nope still nothing it is still damned cold. Apparently Alaska hasn't gotten the memo that we are suffering from global warming?

Oh well summer is a short 5 or 6 months from now, Yay for 50 degree days and not to forget sunshine :)

Monday, not a good day

Thought I would write a little something just to test out my blogging skills. Not a lot of wit or sarcasm today due to a vicious headache that has rendered me lazy and lacking energy. So much for reorganizing my desk, exercising, or funny, witty blogs.
Oh well tomorrow is another day, hopefully without the horrible pain in my head!!!
