Well hey there, mucky snow. Minneapolis hit a balmy 40 degrees over the weekend, which transformed that pretty snow globe wonderland into a bit of an ominous and foggy wasteland. But look! No coats! It’s a Thanksgiving miracle! This knit sweater from Ruche and my furry Target scarf have lately been all sorts of cozy, and a cozy wife is a happy wife. Obviously that should be embroidered on a pillow.

This strange winter weather that can’t seem to decide if the Twin Cities should be snowy, icy, rainy, foggy, slushy, etc. has once again affected all Minnesota drivers. Tis the season, I guess. The painfully slow commuters inch forward in the right lane with their windshield wipers whipping right and left like it’s hurricane season; the dangerously fast commuters zoom on by like they’re about the lap Jeff Gordon on the NASCAR track. And I’m just casually belting the lyrics to “Let It Go” while trying to safely maneuver my way onto campus. But it has recently come to my attention that winter driving turns me into a crazy person {GASP. Crazier than you already are?! Yes, Darrin. Even crazier 😉 }.  Apparently I cannot control my need to honk at anything and everything that occurs on my commute to school. The car ahead of me waits too long once the red light changes to green: honk. The car ahead of me ignores a yield sign and cuts me off: honk. A group of college boys decide to jaywalk once my light turns green: honk. Somebody steals the parking spot I had been waiting for: honk.

WHAT. IS. MY. DEAL. Soon I’ll be honking my car horn at sweet old ladies crossing the street. Baby ducklings wandering down the road. Hugs. Anything, really.

Boy am I ready for a holiday break.
