Makes My Monday: NOT!

Sorry, blog-world, but this Monday sucks! Personally, Mondays suck for me no matter what (which I guess is the whole point of Makes My Monday, to cheer us up...) but this Monday is special. This Monday follows a gorgeous weekend. According to, we "observed" 60°F on Saturday and then 58°F on Sunday. I think it was warmer but my perspective is always skewed by the frigid New England winter - 45°F and I'm in a skirt and open-toed shoes. OK, well, maybe I was before my mommy days. Now its a t-shirt and yoga pants. Don't judge me.

So, of course, Mother Nature could never give us too much of good thing, not yet at least. The lovely weather man told us it would rain this morning and turn into a wintry mix by the afternoon. Sorry, Mr. Meteorologist, but I woke up to snow. Just snow, no rain, and the kind that's heavy and sticks to your shoes and the wheels of the stroller and gets tracked inside and needs lots and lots of shoveling. WTF!!!!!!!!?????????? I hate you, New England weather.

It can snow all it wants in December and January and February. But once we hit 60°F in March, I'm done. Done with winter. Here's what Makes My Monday: looking at expedia for a one-way ticket to El Salvador where its always warm and my in-laws have a place at the beach and house on an island that's in a lake that's in the crater of a former volcano. Ya - autumn is beautiful in NE but when was the last time someone here swam in a volcano?? If you don't believe me, here's proof (back when I could wear a bikini):

(I'm on the island in the lake - the hills in the background are actually the edge, or mouth?, of the volcano)

OK, weather rant over. I'll be singing Mother Nature's praises the next time it's warm. I guess I'm capricious just like her.

What Makes (or breaks?) your Monday? Play along with Cheryl at Twinfatuation!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your twins are so cute! We had crummy weather in the midwest, too. I was stuck inside for nearly 48 hours with a 3.5 year old boy, a 5 year old dog, and a really foul attitude for the lot of us! I need some sun!!!
