Not. So. Much.
Also, we have the snow. Let's not pretend we're surprised by the snow. I know it's January. I'm quite aware of where I live. I just need taller boots.
By the way, if you have a tall and warm boot recommendation for me, please leave it in the comments. Bonus points for tall and warm and cute, but really I just need my toes to stay on my feet. They're threatening to hop off and move away. Extra bonus points for under $100.
Have I told you before how the tall people wear long underwear from October to April? It helps, that's why. We don't keep our house that warm. Two years ago, I was gagging on the price of natural gas whilst my children were running around the house practically na.ked. So we turned down the thermostat a couple of degrees a day, until the children stopped cavorting like jungle natives.
61 degrees. That's where the little arrow sits.
Now do you understand the long underwear situation
My long underwear is old, and the elastic is a little shot, and for a reason unbeknownst to me, the ass of pretty much every pair of undertrousers is completely enormous. Huge. Gigantic.
So I'm wearing a Bella Band to keep my undertrou in the up position. What's a Bella Band? you ask.
That stretchy white thing on those pregnant women is a Bella Band. I love things that multi-task. Also? It keeps my belly covered when I'm breastfeeding Sweets. Two thumbs up and back fat in check. And by "in check" I mean Closer To My Body Thereby Keeping Me Warmer.
At least that is what I'm telling myself.
And that is the news from Lake Daytonbegone, where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average.
