{Stuck on a Toilet with Nothing to Read}

Winter is upon us. I'm reminded of all the snow we got last year. One day in December, I decided to brave the frozen white and do my civic duty, but I was no good at shoveling. I may never get used to the feeling of perspiring outside while it's below freezing. Snotsicles make me so uncomfortable.

You know...uncomfortable. Like sweating giant pit-stains in a dark satin dress on prom night.

Like being caught unawares in a room full of children who are not *quite* potty trained.

Like having nightmares of being the wedding photographer who forgot to bring a camera.

It's like eating cinnamon rolls for breakfast every day all winter and wondering why last summer's swimsuit feels so...snug.

Like running into a husband's skinny ex-girlfriend at the post office the day you didn't bother with concealer. Or mascara.

It's like being stuck on a toilet with nothing to read.

Those pictures are awesome!

My dad was a photographer, so he insisted on not hiring one for his wedding to my mother. Then, guess who forgot the camera? I'll have to ask him how that feels, so I can relate to you better!

It does look really pretty. But it belongs in pictures not real life. Ex girlfriends are the worst to run into and its always when you havent showered or put on make up. I bet shes stalking you.

John: Who's blog is that
John: WHOA she changed it!
John:Why did she change it?

I thought you would be impressed that my non-blogging husband noticed a difference.
