With the exception of, I believe, San Diego, all of the US has snow on the ground right now. So we're all in the same boat, with no chance of warming in sight.
Thus I've compiled a list of things to do while waiting for spring (summer, for some of you) when the snow melts.
#1) Ok, the obvious. Get busy…reading books. (What else?)
#2) Figure out how to make a meal out of a 10 year old box of Bisquick, a can of Campbell's tomato soup, and freezer-burnt raspberries from 1989. And now the power just shut off. Go.
#3) Weather channel on eternal radar loop + Zoloft + beverage of choice. (To be fair, I don't endorse antidepressants + alcohol, so let's just make that an either/or scenario so I don't get sued for bad advice.)
#4) Dig out driveway or dig out car. Repeat. Cry. Repeat. Cry.
#5) Feel sorry for dogs that have to go outside. Dig out dog. Dig out spot on ground for dog to piddle.
#6) Winter luvin' appears to be the answer for all of my pregnant patients. However, it would appear that condoms turn to ice and break in winter. (Or perhaps the fingers putting the condom on are just way too chilly.) Regardless, there is zero use of contraception when snowbound.
#7) Think about Jason Momoa. In Hawaii. On the beach. Shirtless...
Oh, bless me, sorry, got a little distracted there. Where was I?
#8) All right then, how about outline that new series you've been promising to put on paper as soon as you have time? Time. You have lots of it. There will be no school or work for a month at the rate the snow is falling.
#9) Order way too much stuff from Amazon and lauuuuugh because there's zero way that the UPS guy can deliver it.
#10) Order Domino's and lauuuugh because there's no way that's getting to your door in 30 minutes or less. Yippee free, cold pizza!
