Tonight, I am getting on a plane with my husband and kids, and we're flying out to sunny Winnipeg Manitoba! Some of you may be wondering why the heck Winnipeg. IT'S JUNO WEEKEND!
From what I hear these days, it's sunny out there, but it's cold. We were in Winnipeg nine years ago and it was like that. It's a nice city. Some day I'd like to go there when it's not the ass end of Canadian winter, because until then I will never see it looking like this:
We here in Ontario have kind of been getting the prairie winter. Oh, yeah, technically it's spring now, but I call BS on that because I've still got snowbanks up to my knees out here on the ol homestead and it's still several degrees below freezing and I'm worn out. Worn out and worn down.
Also I know people who grew up on the prairies who've said that, yes, the winters are way colder out west, but Ontario winter is much crueler. It's windy here, and wet cold, and makes you want to cry.
Well, I don't know about the crying part. That was just me. I want to cry.
Spring has a history of bumming me out, which sucks, because everybody else is leaping and grinning and chirping while I'm grinding my teeth and moping. Shouldn't spring make me feel optimistic? It does not. It makes me feel like all that excrement out in the yard, melting into a stinking pile.
Last year for the first time in I-don't-even-know-how-long, I felt okay. I could handle it.
This year? Bleccchhhhhh.
But whatever. I AM GOING TO PARTY IN A BUILDING WITH ROCK STARS.
And I'm BRINGING THE YOUNGUNS ALONG.
They haven't gotten a whole lot of advantages from growing up in the music business, and they deserve some perks, right?
I got a $20 dress, I have crazy towering silver wedge heeled shoes -- they're so high I must be close to 5'6" in them!!!!!
I am not even going to lie... I will be graciously accepting the free drinks.
Not too much. Just enough.
I mean. Beer. Right?
Anyways, my phone gadget and computer have decided they are two girls in grade 7 and are not speaking to each other. Therefore, no blog updates. However, I have Instagram!
Alright folks. I'm leaving in 20 minutes. Right after Selina folds laundry and Bucky and Jethro load the car and and I throw some feed at the horses. I'M TOTALLY OKAY HERE, PEOPLE.
