Okay Mother Nature, You Win

It has been a rough couple of weeks in the Nostrikethat household. As alluded to earlier, we had Pestilence visit us last week which necessitated a few days off. This week we had two brief days of semi-normalcy, and then the Snowpocalypse clusterFuuu of Doom “Whatever we’re calling this storm” storm has given the East Coast a big warm hug.

I did not get a humorous sidekick or a catchy song with this post.
Now that song is stuck in your head. That is a catchy-ass song.

I may have also mentioned that my parenting style largely revolves around ignoring my children to the best of my ability. With all of us cooped up inside, it’s been hard to ignore. Still, I’m trying really hard not to be a whiny bitcperson about it. When life gives you snow, do snowy things!

I’ve gone for short walks in the snow!

I’ve taken slightly pretentious artfully composed pictures of things!


I have humorously posed our pet on the furniture!


Now, I am going to be a whiny bitcperson.

To top it all off, there is An Official Holiday approaching.

someecards.com - I love you for so much more than just your life-saving body heat.


So tonight, I dedicate this post to Mrs. Nostrikethat.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I’m stuck in the house
And you are too

Happy Valentine’s Day, my love.

Also, if I have to give our teenage babysitter a piggy-back ride (in a completely appropriate and non-sexual way of course) through the snow and to our house, we are going on our date Saturday.

  1. I have no idea who that snowman is, or what song he sings, so I’m guessing I’m one of the lucky ones. (“I’m Ron Burgundy?”)


    1. It’s from the movie Frozen, so yes, consider yourself lucky. 🙂
