We’re all gonna die a snowy death. And…SANTA!

The storm arriving tonight has the potential to be the biggest winter storm for much of Minnesota since the 1991 Halloween blizzard. Possible white-out conditions south and west of the Twin Cities, and wind chills of -20 to -35. (source)

So, I started writing a post about how Abbers will be seeing the man from the North Pole this afternoon, but all I am hearing since yesterday afternoon is SNOWMAGEDDON and that we’re going to be buried under 1-2 FEET of snow. I’m having a hard time focusing on anything else.

Again, why do I live here?

Anyway, this afternoon the hubs (who is sick as a dog right now with a cold I’m sure I’ll be suffering from momentarily) will be bringing Abby downtown and we’re heading the Macy’s to walk through the Christmas display on 8th floor, and then see the man himself. Secretly, I’m kind of hoping we get one of those pictures with the big ugly tears. I would love to add something to this collection.

I’ll post some pictures later. Of both our house covered in snow and Abbers with Santa.

Meat in a can. Part deux.

Lately I’ve had some sweet spam comments. I thought I’d share them with you. Please to enjoy:

Hello, I think your blog is epic. Congrats.
-This came from someone whose “name” is Virtual Online Games

Why is it that humans can move their eyes in opposite directions toward the nose, but not away from the nose?
-This comment was on Abby’s birthday post. Honestly? A good question, Mr. Watch Movies.

Congratulations on your second pregnancy, So you are going to be a mother again! Motherhood is really a fantastic feeling indeed. You need to be wondering, in what ways your experience is going to differ from your 1st 1. Also, since your body is older than the 1st time around, you may possibly also be anxious about achievable complications. Here are a couple of things to expect throughout your second pregnancy period, and some cautions that you should take, to ensure that every thing is smooth sailing.
-First…WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA. I’m not pregnant. No, I am not going to be a mother again. Thanks for pointing out that one is older the second time around.

Keep ’em coming, spambots. I love them.

Abbers, aka Evel Knievel

So, my dear, sweet Abigail pulled a stunt the other day that made me nearly cry out in fear/sorrow and also made me want to high five the little shit.

She climbed out of her crib.

Mind you, it was of course unsuccessful. Papa (the hubs’ dad) had just put her in her crib in an attempt to get her to sleep. She apparently said “eff that noise, papa!” and then launched herself over the side, landing on the one side of the crib without carpeting. With a thud. And not on her feet. And then an hour of crying. She also nearly gave Papa a heart attack. Nurse Papa kicked in and checked her out and she was without bumps, bruises or concussions.

First – WTF Abbers? Since when do you climb? While that is awesome that you’ve learned how to do that, LET’S NOT. MMMKAY?

Second – I thought I lowered the crib already? How in the hell did you get out of it? Then I remember that I made the mistake of putting the crib on the middle setting. Not the lowest. No. I thought – “She won’t be able to climb over! This will be easier for us to get her in and out!” Low and behold, she did…like, 6 months later.

So, I lowered it. And then continued to panic because OMGWHATIFSHEDOESITAGAIN?

I briefly thought about this:

And then decided that having it on it’s lowest setting is just fine. If she pulls another Evel stunt again? She gets the toddler bed.
