breaking news update



just got the call from a robot at school. this is the perfect storm. snow day on tap for tomorrow, and knowing it early.



reminds me of the time i had a snow day and my daughter and i went shopping to celebrate. i was wearing my new, full length, warm, warm winter coat. as we got out of the car, i stepped on to a patch of ice and somehow slid under the car, and into a massive puddle beneath where the ice had cracked. my daughter, upon stepping out of the car on her side, said she looked around and was stumped when she couldn’t figure out where i’d gone. once she figured it out and heard me calling out from below the car, instead of rescuing me, she decided to take a picture of it and quickly send it to her sisters and call them to tell them what was happening. good thing i had on my new, giant coat, which acted as an impromptu flotation device. she finally helped me out and as we walked into the store, a bit wet and muddy, and we laughed so hard and so long that i then wet myself, making it even a bit colder. life does not get any better.

  1. My Sister, I wish that I could come up with a bible verse that would relate to the instance that you have brought to the attention of “the whole blog world,” (lol) but I can’t. So, I’ll just say that I’m glad that you safely survived the fall. Blessings to you and your “special daughters>” (of course they are very special; they are yours!)

  2. OMG, That is hilarious! You’re not posting the picture she took? (I wouldn’t either) And by the way, I have that Marmot coat in black. Now, next time I put it on, I’ll be reassured it will act as a flotation device just in case. LOL


  3. OK, no laughing going on here…just a very, very slight smile. See there, the smile is gone already. Glad you were able to see the humor in the situation. Ah, any chance your daughter still has the photo?


  4. awesome memory. I’m in Minnesota and the Governor cancelled school for Monday on Friday! It’s too cold for the Midwest, Beth. Where does that leave us?


  5. Oh my! I think that comparing your coat to a floatation device, then your story about your landing under the car: Totally hilarious and I Imagine I would wet myself, too, if seeing you in such a condition! What a wonderful story, (as long as no one got hurt!) The picture would have been priceless and possibly worth a ‘funniest home video’ if caught in action!


  6. This is really funny and reminds me of a similar time, oh a long time ago now but unlike your wise decision of wearing a suitable warm winter coat i was in just jeans and a t-shirt, oh yes and having slid under the car I neatly skimmed my shins on the sill, ouch I think I said 😦 lol

    It was a very cold day, wet ass and bloody shins
    but that was in my plonker days, now I wear a coat 🙂
