To my Husband, on a Snow Day


February 4, 2011.

Texas is having a weather identity crisis. I blame the Superbowl XLV teams, Packers and Steelers.

Thank you for getting me out of the house yesterday. Because I was going stir crazy, literally. After four days of not leaving the house and one experience of slipping and falling on ice, I was coming down with cabin fever. Thank you for having lived in Alaska, and being a snow ninja. Thank you for offering to brave the frozen, slippery streets, and inexperienced ice drivers to give me a mini night-out. Thank you for not being embarrassed of how ridiculous I looked. Thank you for taking care of me. You made sure I watched out for patches of ice (you know ice and I aren’t friendly), and helped me breathe some, albeit frozen, fresh air.

And today, it’s a Snow Day. With real blankets of white covering our home, and the snowflakes continuing to fall steadily. Thanks for asking me if I wanted to go outside and play in the snow. Even though I am so ill-prepared for cold weather. I went outside in my Vans, no exactly snow shoes. And I just want to remember these past few days. Being iced in and the dangers of ice patches. The sounds of what sounded like a blizzard (not from Dairy Queen). The mini snowball fight. Thank you for making this crazy weather fun. As long as I’m with you, I know it’ll be a good time. I love you.

Yes, I left the house looking like this. Whatever, I was cold.
