This is Bullshit

So yesterday got up to 27 degrees (it’s -7 right now) and my mom said that sounds nice.  Well, it’s nicer than anything lower but it’s not nice.  27 anywhere is not nice!!!  Regardless of season or location.  Talking yourself into thinking 27 is nice in any sense is just settling.

Valentine’s Day

It’s frigid in the Midwest, as if the snow and already cold weather weren’t enough.  I repeat, I don’t understand why anyone would do this (as in, live with these winters) unless s/he has to.

Anyway, we went to the fine establishment of Cracker Barrel last night.  I have never been, he has not been in a long time, and we did not want to go to a fancy place downtown, so off we went to the Cracker Barrel restaurant and country store:

I have to say, the fried okra was good!  But then, I love okra and what fried food isn’t good?!  I was surprised at the menu included gluten free items and a “healthier” submenu with calories listed.  So we checked that off the list…

Here are A and P’s Valentine Day pictures with daddy:

While my poor hubby did this three times today

Not fun, slightly more tolerable if you don't have to go to work, but still no good in any way
