Snow Snow GO AWAY!!!
Well it looks like we are going to have a white Christmas after all here at the Nuthouse. I have decided my household needs a name since I get tired of listing all of us lol. It has been snowing off and on for days now, and you know I am about over it. Luckily my dad likes to come over in the mornings and shovel my driveway for me so I can get out for work. Bless you Wanderer!!!!!
Speaking of shoveling Tooters did something that I wanted to share, and believe me I am not really thrilled about it. My dad called me at work yesterday and asked me to come give him a ride home since he locked his keys in the car at the store. So naturally the good daughter that I am got up and ran out the door to rescue him. When I pulled up to the car there stands my mom shivering, my dad looking a little frustrated, and Tooters busy shoveling snow next to the car with the mini snow shovel my dad bought for her. She was very proud that she was clearing a path for her grandma.
After we got the keys taken care of I returned to work to finish out the day. Late in the afternoon it started to rain. Now I don’t know about the rest of you but I always thought when it got to freezing the snow was suppose to come down not the rain. Anyways it was like 25 degrees, windy and raining. I called to ask Tooters if it was raining out her window too, it is an on going thing we do making sure if it is snowing at my work it is snowing at the house. However the Wanderer informed me that Tooters was too busy to come to the phone. Here I am thinking that Hannah Montana is taking priority over me and I got a little hurt. Usually when she hears me on the phone she comes running to talk to me, but not this time. Naturally I had to ask what she was doing and this is what the Wanderer told me:
“Your daughter is busy outside shoveling the snow in the grass so that the dogs have a path to walk on so they can go pee.”
Now I can just imagine the whole scene in my head and start to laugh. Tooters is probably shoveling as fast as she can and there is Sugerbooger my mom’s dog bouncing around outside of the path playing in the snow. It is funny to watch her do this because she is a very small white Pomeranian that cannot walk in the snow she has to bounce through it. Dusty-Do is behind Tooters in the cleared path watching her, but only for a moment and high tailing it back into the house. She is like the Wonder Pup she does not like the snow.
Then it dawned on me that it is raining and I let the Wanderer know this, you know just incase he forgot kids need to be in the house in the rain. He told me he knew but she has her hat on and is having fun. You know there is just no winning some days where grandpa is concerned.
This morning we woke up to even more snow and Tooters was ecstatic because now she had a real excuse to use her new shovel. So this morning instead of my dad shoveling the driveways I did it with lots of “help” from my little one. By the time I finished my driveway and his I was frozen. I took a second to look at my handy work and I started giggling. There are straight consistent lines where I had shoveled across the driveway and on top of it are all these wild lines where Tooters had helped. When my dad came out to see why we had not come in the house yet and Tooters ran up to him saying, “Boy grandpa aren’t you glad you bought me this shovel now you do not have to clear the driveway any more, me and my mom can!!!”
Holy freaking crap I think I just got volunteered for a new job the rest of the winter because the shit eating grin on my dad’s face said it all. So everyone next time it snows please take pity on me and send lots of warm thoughts for my poor tortured toes!!
I posted some more pictures below that are out my window at work from yesterday right before we got dumped on again. Everyone stay safe for Christmas with all the bad weather and stay warm.
