Our driveway has been like the luge track at the Winter Olympics for about three weeks now! The more we drove on it, the slipptier (Nat's word) it became. The height of treachery came last Thursday as the temps again dropped at the near zero mark and I had to dodge the trash barrels while backing out! SERIOUSLY HONEY? Can we at least put them on the same side? The whole family needed baseball spikes to maneuver mail pickups. In fact, Nat had her boots on and still went down on her crown Friday morning...
I know get to the point, right? I had to capture all of the slippery details first...fast forward to Monday morning!
"Do you you want to put the garage door up?" I asked Nat. After all, it's one of her favorite morning routines.
"Sure Momma!" Coat on, zipped and smiles from ear to ear! Click, door going up, she bounded down the steps to the driveway.
"HUUH? Momma, where's Winter? Jack Frost finally left our driveway!!"
Where has he gone? Oh, "I'm sure the devious little fella will be back soon!"
"Yes, Momma, I miss him!"
