That's it Winter, I'm breaking up with you.

I woke us this morning at my normal time. Got the kids ready for school, gave them breakfast and said good bye. Their mom took them to school. I got ready for work, got in my car and went to my office. I prepared for the day, went to court and kicked butt. This has been my routine everyday this month. And living in the Chicago burbs this routine has been accompanied by cold. Some days have been absolutely freezing and other have been kinda chilly. This year though it's been more chilly than cold. Temperatures hover more in the mid 40's than mid teens. It's been a warmer than usual January with very little snow. Sure a snow storm here and there but it's always followed by warmer temps melting away all the fun snow.

Winter has been pissing me off but today I'm officially angry with Winter. Today, January 31st, the temperature hit 61 degrees. It may be higher, but as I write this it's 61 degrees. This is wrong, unacceptable, mind blowing, stupid, frustrating and makes me sad. I like Winter. I like cold. I like snow, especially having little kids. I want to get out and build snowmen and have snowball fights. We have plenty of time for Spring weather....in Spring! So Please Winter, I beg you, come back. Unleash a blizzard that closes schools for a week. Hit rush hour with blinding snow so that it takes 3 hours to drive 2 miles. Make me shovel the driveway four time in one night. Do it, I dare you. Please, just do something. I'm not ready for Spring yet.

Super Bowl week!

It's Super Bowl week! Despite the fact that my Vikings have long, long, long, long been out of contention, I'm still excited for the big game. There are commercials to be watched and food to be consumed. Oh yeah, there's also the game. Skol Vikings....maybe next year.

One Year Anniversary!

Today is an exciting day. It's National Squirrel Appreciation Day AND the first day of the Year of the Dragon. Dragons rock and I'm a fire dragon so it's double cool. But if you thought there was no way to cram any more awesome into one day, you would be very wrong. Today is the one year anniversary of my picture a day.

Yup, one year ago I started posting a picture a day. It's been fun, I've really enjoyed posting random pictures for you guys. I'm constantly shocked by how many people check out the posts. Over 14,000 in the last year! I have no plans on stopping, there is so much more to share. I've got some fun Winter pictures coming this week. There are birthdays coming and then Spring. Kiddos T-ball, soccer and school. Hawks games, Summer craziness, vacation fun and back to Fall. Before I know it it will be Winter again. Like I said, there is so much to share.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Thank You for stopping by. I appreciate each and every one of you. Leave comments, let me know what you think. I love comments, it makes it more fun. Again, thanks and enjoy my picture today. Jason, my supervisor for life and delivery boy to all messages of Completely Random and Awesome thoughts.

Forever Creepy

I was watching TV a couple nights ago and saw a commercial for Forever Lazy. As you can see it's basically a full body fleece. One of its big selling points are zippered hatches so you can relieve yourself without taking it off. And by relieve I mean take a poop too! They actually highlight that on the commercial. Like sitting on the pot in a full fleece bag taking a shit out of a hole in the back of your fleece bag is a good thing. Egad! I never want to be so lazy that I cant pull my pants down to shit. Really, Egad!

Flashlight fun

Kids with flashlights are hilarious. The adventures they had tonight made me smile. Whether they were searching for fish in the ocean, having major performances on stage or looking for UFO's, it was wonderful seeing their imagination grow.

Soup night

What did I do with my day off? I made soup for the week. It took a while but it's worth it just to have a quick easy dinner ready any time I need this week. It's healthy, Karen and I like it and the kids seem to like it too. A complete success.

Funky Kong

What did I do today? Well, I worked registration for bobcat soccer.....then I fell asleep watching Jacque Pepin with my kids....THEN I busted out a game I got for Xmas, Mario Super Sluggers. I've always loved Mario Superstar Baseball so I assumed I'd love this game. It started out a bit slow but I'm hooked. I'm pretty sure I got hooked right about the time I got Funky Kong. Love that funky Funky Kong.
