Wednesdays Rants...

Welcome to Wednesdays Rants.
This Wednesday's Rant is brought to you by the makers of Folgers Coffee...cause let's face it, it's the only thing that is keeping me warm...
     Well folks, I don't know about you, but where in the world has that warm weather run off to? is really cold outside. As I sit here on this chilly Virginia morning, I am wondering what it would be like to live near a warm sandy beach, with crystal clear blue waters and the glorious warm sunshine. Sounds like heaven right? Well, I thought so...
     Anyway, most of you know I am not a cold weather person. Don't get me wrong, I love winter, really I do, but unless there is snow on the ground, I really don't see the point of wet, dreary, overcast cold days. Bring on the Snow! Let me have something pretty to look at for all my troubles. Besides, Thanksgiving and Christmas, sometimes winter seems to drag on and on and I get tired of wearing every stitch of clothing in my closet just to sty warm.
     You see, I am not cold weather proof. When the temp drops below 70 degrees, I freeze. That's when I break out all my cold weather gear. Now, for those of you who live up north, your probably thinking why in the world is a woman who lives in Virginia, crying about the cold, well let me tell you...Its my Husband's Fault that's why!
     Married for over 18 years, I just happened to marry a man who was born and raised up north. He loves the winter months, actually thrives on them. So, when the first freeze makes it's way down here, while I am bundling up, my hubby is stripping down! Sometimes, I wonder if he may be as crazy as bat shit on Sunday, but that's another rant for later. Back to toady's rant...
     Like I was say, hubby strips down to tanks, and shorts while I am searching desperately for those electric long-johns my kids bought me as a gag gift three years ago...(can I just say, BEST GIFT EVER!) There is not enough coffee, hot coco or tea in the world to keep me warm. To make matters worse, the Temperature Police (my hubby) strictly checks the thermostat daily to make sure I am not jacking up the heat...cause let's face it, ya know damn well, the moment he leaves for work, my frozen ass is running to set the thermostat at 75 degrees. I mean seriously, I live here too...right!
     So, for the next four or five months, depending on where you live, try and stay warm this winter. If you find yourself drinking a hot cup of coffee, or sharing a cup of hot coco with your kids or Friends, think of me...and my frozen misery as I fight to survive another winter season.


  1. Your post had me happy I love the cold. I live in NE Ohio and it's been in the high 30's and I am enjoying myself. I have my bedroom windows open with a fan in the one. I seem to be opposite of you it hit's 70 for me and I start feeling warm. I hope you can stay warm this winter :).

  2. Thank you Tiffany. I am happy someone got it! LOL...anyway, I hope you stay warm livin so far up north...girl I dont know how you do it. As for me...I am sitting here in sweats, wool socks and a heating pad under my ass! LOL...stay warm!
