Our neighbors to the south got snow. Our neighbors out west also got snow. Our neighbors to the east? Yes, they too got snow. And of course... Our neighbors to the north got snow. Washongton DC? Totally cursed (or blessed if you are part of the local government here).
Sure, my Christmas was wonderful. Yes, I am totally griping for nothing. After all, I am at work and getting a lot of stuff done. But I wanted to play in the snow. Yeah, it's pretty selfish of me, but I want what I want.
Christmas was pretty sweet. Finally got me a replacement camera... Also went to a "White" Catholic Church with my "not-quite-white" husband. He of course noticed that something was off right away but couldn't quite place what it was. Either way, it doesn't matter if you go to an ultra exclusive, rich, Scottish church to celebrate Jesus birth. At least you celebrated, right?
This year, I am feeling especially grateful. After all, I can kiss my loved one goodnight and that's more than many folks have. Bummer, I know. But sometimes you have to look at the really sad stuff to realize how unsad your life is. Wow, the biggest gripe I have is not getting snow? I'm really blessed! :)
