Snow, Puzzles & Fires

Sounds like a great combination... doesn't it?  It's November 30th... the last day of the month... meaning 25 days until Christmas!!! The trees are up, the lights are hung and Christmas songs are heard echoing through the hallways of my apartment, workplace, car, and every store I stroll through. Yet no snow...

It's starting to get frustrating! If any of you saw in a video posted to Facebook, I become like a little kid every time I see the snow fall!  And not that snow is necessary for me to be in the Christmas spirit... but... well, yes it is necessary.  BUT HAVE NO FEAR!!!! We have a small chance tonight for a snow "dusting" and a better chance Friday night into Saturday with a good chance of a couple inches at least!  So to all you snow haters... suck it up... you have 8 other months to enjoy the weather... let us Christmas fans have our fun.

I was a major contributor to a puzzle some friends were putting together on Sunday.  I pieced approximately 50 pieces to their 500 (actually 499) piece puzzle.  Now... you are probably laughing saying that I only contributed around 10%... BUT the last puzzle I put together had about 10 pieces to it. It was fun though!  Who needs PlayStations and 3D TV's to have a good time... give me some cards and maybe a puzzle and some good movies.

But I will need some PS3 time in there...

Finally... fires.  We have a REAL fireplace in the apartment!!! Now, there is a chance that some jack-wagon lights the whole complex on fire... but that will not be me.  Plus I think there's something deeper to this obsession of being a man and fire. Think about the when man had to create fire for warmth and to cook food.  It was essential for someone to make a fire in order to survive.  I do not have to rely on fire to survive... but I do equate my manhood to my ability to create fire.  Kinda.

Alright... so get those puzzles ready (always good memory making time... even if your kids will cuss you out) and make sure your (real or fake) fire place is ready to go for the SNOW!!!

Disclaimer: Also make sure popcorn is on hand.  Always a great snow/fire/puzzle snack.

  1. Question, what if I don't have a fireplace? Can I really get in the holiday spirit? Can my husband be considered a man, even if he can't build a fire, but it's because he doesn't have a fireplace? I'm so confused!
