Since the big bosses so nicely decided to block facebook, I have decided to go a different route to cure my ADHD during normal business hours!
To begin, My name is Sarah. I have lived in the Edmonton area my whole life, and would never move east of here..... why?......
Mountains Mountains Mountains!
If you know me at all, you know my few passions!
Today, we start with winter. Here you all go gagging and rolling your eyes. Is it really necessary to slide, stick and sweat during a long day in the office? You then proceed to fall into a sweltering car and inch through the daily cram of cars only to arrive home an hour later to make dinner, watch the long awaited hour of Big Brother and then climb into bed to do it all again the next day. I'm well aware of the downsides of the cold blowy months, but there are simply more advantages to this hated season than people are lead to believe.
Lets see..... First we start with a beautiful season which changes the color of our world. The yellows, reds, oranges and who can forget the browns. I once had a friend tell me that her favorite color is brown because she felt bad that it is so un-loved.
Then comes Halloween. If it wasn't frowned upon to be a 25 year old gum-ball machine and run from door to door to collect free sugar out of the hands of overworked and underpaid parents, who wouldn't choose this social activity for one night per year?
Shortly after that is the BEST day of the year. You climb out of your toasty covers, get ready for your never-ending day, and open the door to face another 24 hours! Just as the hinges creek open, you get a glimpse of the white driveway that lays ahead of you. Ideas start filling your head of what to do next.... make a snowangel, have a snowball fight with the neighbor that you have just never understood, or spend an hour trying to find the snowboard that you have hidden in the back of your closet to quit reminding you that this day will never come! Nope. Instead you all dwell on how long it will take you to warm up the car, brush it off, get to where you need to be through all of the accidents, and regret buying that house with the corner lot that you HAVE to shovel when you get home as the mailman's broken wrist still hates you from last winter.
It's not over yet, but I have work to do...........
