Laziness, Snow, and College

Am I incredibly lazy or what? For Christmas,  CH gave me 3 (yes, 3!) certificates for pedis!  I had my first and only one at the beginning of the summer, and loved it.  I'm excited about going back, but...that means I have to shave my legs.  I know, I know.  L-A-Z-Y.  I abhor shaving my legs.  Really.  If plucking the hairs out one by one would cause them to never come back, I would do it.  If I were rich, I'd laser those suckers away.  I'm just talking about the bottom part of my legs.  The bikini area is a whole different story.  Even if I've only worn a 2 piece bathing suit one time in my life and never plan on wearing one again.  At some point, hair removal has to be done.  I don't want anybody waxing me there:  I find it hard to believe that the waxers don't talk amongst themselves.  Do they have to sign a "confidentiality clause"?  And then the Kardashian girls go and get waxed on tv.
Sorry... got off track.  I got the Christmas decorations put away on Saturday and got the house back to normal.  Friday I had an unexpected day off because of an expected snow storm that never came.  We got a cold rain after 3:00, but that was it until Friday night/Saturday morning.  The weather models are showing a big disturbance coming in that will affect the south...we may be stuck in our house for days!   If you're not from the south, what they say about us is true:  We run to the store at the mere threat of snow for bread and milk.  I'm not sure why.  What can you make with bread and milk?  Why don't we go get other stuff?  I can't answer that, but I did tell CH that we needed to go to the store for bread and milk.  And cheese. 
OS & MS are anxious to get back to their colleges and get ready for the new semester.  OS doesn't start classes until Thursday, but with the snow coming in, he wanted to make sure he could get to school.  Since MS is just 15 minutes away, it's not as big of a deal for him; he just wants to get back to see his friends.  So, they both will be gone Sunday afternoon.  I had started to get used to our new "normal". And I miss it.  But when they're gone, I miss them.  It's a vicious cycle.  And I bet it will never end.

  2. There's lots you can do with bread and milk. My Grandma used to put butter and jam on a slice of bread put it in a bowl, pour milk on it and call it dessert.

  3. It's always hard to adjust back to "normal" when my kids come home to visit and then leave. A part of me always seems to leave with them...

  6. Shaving/waxing/plucking...all of it is a tax I hate doing. But it is a daily task for me because of the amount I run. And I could go on to tell you how bad hair and running tights just don't mesh but I am sure you'd be bored. LOL But know that you are NOT alone in the whole issue!!!
    Also, I think the grocery folks call up the weather folks an tell them to come up with something so profits rise. hahaha We'll see if that other storm rolls in.....

  8. My sister lives in Little Rock and she was just telling me that the Wal Mart was out of bread and milk...too funny.

    Saving and waxing...we should all just move to Europe.

    Glad you got your Christmas decorations packed up. That was my plan for this weekend but I haven't started yet! Yes, that cycle with our children will never end and I love it.

  12. Hi Mary! I looked for an email address to reply to your comment about my page links. There is a widget on Blogger to add those. If you add the widget underneath the blog header, like I did, the page links are spread out. If you add the widget to your sidebar, they are in a list. Here's the tutorial for it, I found it helpful.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  13. Shaving and waxing and plucking Oh My! I am with you, Sister! I hope your weather isn't too bad and if you get snow days that the electricity stays on for you. Have a great week, Candace

  14. You know some man invented women shaving their legs. Argh! I am so with you!

    I have grown to love the empty nest. It took awhile, but now that they are out of college and on their own--I really enjoy it. You'll get there someday, too. (Don't get me wrong-- I still LOVE to spend time with them. I just like my house, my way!)

    Have a wonderful week!

  15. The "bread and milk" thing is the same here in NY!! My friends and I laugh about it!! We're expecting some kind of storm Tuesday nite into Wednesday but we'll see what happens. I've been following the expected storm for the south on the Weather Channel. I'd love to get stuck in my house for three days!! My kids would drive me crazy but it still sounds like fun!!!!! Thanks so much for your visit to my blog and be safe during your storm. It will give you lots of time to shave your legs. : )
