At first I missed GR. All my friends were there, my family, my favorite Target. I wrote it letters, I begged all my friends to move with me, and I cried for hours on end! It was a very rough time or me. (Ok well I didn't really cry, except when I found out Target was half way across town. That was a rough moment.)
Things got a little better. I made some friends in Lansing. I got to go to some MSU games. (Go Sparty!) I got used to the smell. (If you weren't aware, Lansing has a NASTY smell. It's a cross between a landfill and burnt food. Not pleasant. But you get used to it. Kinda like Bay City and the sugar beats!) My friends from GR even come to visit me every so often. (I love you guys!!!)
I came to terms with my move. All was going well.
And then it snowed.
At first I was all, "Ha ha GR, you guys suck. I don't have snow and you doooooo!"
Sure it was immature and slightly mean, but what's a girl to do?
I felt good about my smug attitude. I laughed at their misery and reveled in the fact I had moved so far away from the crappy weather. (I don't understand why my friends don't visit me more often. I am Such A Great Friend!)
And then it happened.
They popped up all over Facebook ... Status Updates like ...
Snow Day :o/ ...
Drive safe out there.......I know I won't be leaving my house today.......so be safe out there.....
To go back to bed, or help husband shovel? hrmmmm tough call.
Hopes that the e-mail and text notification system she set up at school worked for all those who signed up. I received my text within 5 minutes of it being posted on Facebook
That's right. GR equals snow day today and Lansing equals getting out of bed and getting the kids ready and trudging out in the slush and and and...
Can I move back to GR now?
