Since mid morning, we've accumulated another 5" or so of snow. I decided, again, to shovel our sidewalk and some of the driveway...at least the portion where Shawn pulls the car up in the drive. Weird, I know, but I actually start pretending I'm preparing to go skiing while I put all of my winter garb on...my long johns, my ski socks (yes, I have special ski socks), thermal glove liners...the whole bit. I have that same feeling of anticipation I have just before hitting the slopes. And then. The reality of the situation sets in when I look at the shelf with my ski boots stored up high and instead I reach for grungy work boots. Ok, that's a lie.. I don't own work boots....I grabbed a semi-dingy pair of UGGs that have seen better days but are incredibly warm. They will be my work boots today.
To be perfectly honest the real reason I've decided to shovel snow is because I heard on the news that someone lost 3 lbs in just a couple of hours doing the same thing.
I had one problem and that is that all of our gloves have been 'misplaced' by my kids and now I am left with not even a mismatched pair but instead a mismatched pair of right handed gloves. I'm going for it anyway.
So I go shovel snow with two right hands. My left hand starting cramping about five minutes in and it had nothing to do with the work I was doing but rather trying to conform my left hand to an unnatural position.
30 minutes into the job and I am done. Not with the actual job, just done with two right hands.
Warning: Don't try this at home. Your hand will thank you.
And, so much for minus 3 lbs.
