When Life Gives You Lemons...Make Lemonade

When life gives you snow...make a snowman, or some snow roads or the biggest snowball you can muster. That's some big snowball!

We did all of the above. The three-year-old had fun and so did his thirty-something parents.

This is Olympic Frosty.

As soon as this picture was taken, we went all Bruce Lee on his frozen snowman butt and smashed him to pieces. That was probably more fun than building him.

I really need a good workout today, so I'm planning 40 minutes of strength training. I should be pretty tired and sweaty after that. I have to compensate for the snacks I'll be consuming during the big hockey game today. I've got my Olympic shirt and flags all set, but I don't know if I'll be able to take the pressure. I get so nervous, like somehow my own self-worth is wrapped up in the success of our hockey team. It's ridiculous.

Don't forget tomorrow is weigh-in day. I'm not expecting a great result this week, but I'm going to weigh-in anyway.


  1. I always consider snowplay my workout for the day-especially when I am shoveling my big corner lot!

  2. I agree, playing in the snow was my workout yesterday ;-)

  3. That is a big snowball and nice looking snowman, looks like you had a nice family day playing in the snow.

    I am not looking forward to the weigh-in tomorrow, it was a bad week could not stop eating and no working out. Hopefully next week will be better,

  4. Congratulations! I have selected to pass on my first blog award to you -- the Sunshine Award! Stop by for a bowl of Soup to pick it up!

  5. I'm on the East Coast...and we had to dig out of 40 inches of snow..and of course, we made monster snowmen :P
