Ok. So I live in Minnesota. I have for almost 20 years now. I grew up in South Dakota. Not that different, right? Especially when it comes to winter, right? Right. So you would think that by now, I would be fine with the oh so cold winter and the days on end with no sunshine. But you know something? I’m not. I’ll be honest, I like some of the fun outdoor activities that come along with wintertime – skiing, snowball fights, burying Mark in the snow and then forgetting where we put him….all fun. But somedays, you’re just ready for a good old fashioned heat wave. Right now, that would mean temps above 10 degrees – but I digress……
I do have to say that this was a pretty fun January – we started it with a trip to Columbus, OH (always fun), then a few shows in our backyard of Maplewood, and we rounded it all out with a mini-tour of Wisconsin where we made a lot of new friends! So overall, I guess it was pretty good!
So, what am I complaining about then, you ask? To be honest, now I don’t really know. Maybe I’m just punchy. Maybe I’m not looking forward to having to go out in the cold and locate a snow buried Mark McGowan. Could be anything, really.
Know what I do like? Spring is just around the corner. If that corner is like 500 miles away. But I know it’s there – I just know it. Just like I know Mark is still wherever we buried him. I just know it. I hope. Gosh, I hope. Blah.
