Bring Out Your Misfits!
Oh, this holiday season is just too much, isn’t it? The cooking, the cleaning, the Weather Channel Updates…
And just think how busy it would’ve been if we had actually attended the Christmas festivities!
The Midwestern states were gripped by a winter storm these last few days, throwing kinks into any plan you had between Wednesday and Saturday. Minnesota was blanketed in almost two feet of snow, South Dakota closed a number of roads, and the last person out of Iowa turned out the lights.
I may be exaggerating a wee bit.
But there’s no denying that the storm kept us from attempting the drive to the family Christmas, and Willie and I were forced to batten down the hatches and drink margaritas.
All of this, of course, has just made me all the more ready for Misfit Christmas. The chowder is in the crock pots, the pile of slippers at the front door is ready for the obligatory shedding of the boots, and it’s not just the sidewalks that are on ice.
