To Snow or Not to Snow

I love snow. Especially right before Christmas! It just makes the world a nicer place!

Currently the forecast calls for anywhere from 'a light dusting' to 12", depending on who you talk to. And, this is all scheduled to start this evening.

Now, it is important to note that I am one of those "If-you're-gonna-go-GO-BIG" kinda girls! A light dusting, really shouldn't be classified as snowfall. It's like a bald guy with comb-over thinking he has hair.

So bring on the 12"!

SFX: brakes screeching to a halt

It can't snow tonight! Please Dear Jesus -- wait another 24 hours and you can double the snow blessing!

Tomorrow is the day. Moving day! Five and 1/2 years of marriage, one child, miles (nearly 100) from the in-laws, two many job transfer offers to count and I am finally a home owner! The Hubs, A-Man and I are so very excited. We will have Christmas in our new (10yr old) home!

I must say it's quite adorable! We're keeping most of the color scheme from the previous owners, including RED on the walls! God blessed them with some decorating skills and I gonna piggy back! Lord knows if I would have done it myself it would have looked like the outside of McDonald's!! Oh, and there is a cute little pond outside the front door with, Koi. Do fish like snow?! I know what you're thinking! -- a house with a great color scheme and pets, STINKIN' AMAZING!

And back to that snow in the forecast ...
Anyone every tried to maneuver a moving truck on snow? Hubs thinks he can drive anything! He can, too. But it usually involves me, feet pressed through the floor board (I swear there are actual size 6 1/2 indentions), eyes shut tight, repeating the phrase "covered by the blood!" He did mention something this morning about snow chains! And with his automotive connections it wouldn't surprise me if he came home with some.

So you all can see why I'm torn here. Not to mention the new abode has a awesome sledding hill!

Oh my, only time will tell.

There are still a few more things to pack, very strategically I might ad. Gigi, I'll be dropping by to borrow one of those locking suitcases!

Ohhh if you're borrowing a suitcase from the Gi, then you must not be going far from her--I sure hope not!

You're STINKIN lucky alright--fish! Loving the decor! I'd enjoy photos when you have time. I'm one of those...telling John to slow down if we're driving by a house a night--so I can SEE!

Funny you should mention looking like McDonald's--ask Gigi how I know what those colors mean! xo

PS--forgot! Happy moving day, I'll send up a prayer for NO 12" snow until you're unpacked and know where your cocoa is!

Five miles? That's too far! I'm thinking of packing up and moving right next door. I'm chewin on could happen! ;)
