Random Tuesday Thoughts - Seriously?

Umm, hello, FLORIDA? Did you forget that you're supposed to be all sunny and tropical and WARM?!

3-day forecast


Sunny, but cold
High: 45°F

WednesdaySunshine, but cool
High: 52°F


Clouds and sun
High: 58°F

14 freaking degrees? Seriously? I'm done with North Central Florida....Key West, here I come! (I wish!)

I didn't do my usual Weekend WrapUp because my weekend was so totally uneventful. Very good, but not much to report. Both of us had one of those weekends where we just couldn't adjust to day shift life and we slept all day and were up all night. I spent most of the weekend curled up in John's lap, watching rented movies. (Paranormal Activity is FREAKY and good!)


I had a horrifically terrible night at work on Sunday night. I can't really go into it here but a patient just wore me down, emotionally drained me, broke my spirit. I spent Monday in bed and my kids had cereal for dinner. And I don't even feel guilty. I just did not have it in me to function.

Here's to a better day today!

Damn, it's as cold there as it is here! BUT, you will be so proud-- I BOUGHT A SNUGGIE.

I seriously did.

You were right-- YOU TOLD ME SO!

The temps are crazy... I keep looking around and going 'Yep, I still live in FL", but it is hard to believe with these temps. Can I move south with you??

In the paper today is was calling for snow up here in the Panhandle by Thursday. We live in Florida, right? This is all so wrong.

I have family in Palm Harbor, Fl and my dad says he is freezing!

KK said...

Its supposed to be the coldest in 30 years here tomorrow night. I. Am. Not. Happy!

Huckdoll said...

Sadness! It's actually warmer up here in Vancouver.

Backwards I tell ya.

Hope you're feeling a bit better. Don't let someone else's negativity bring you down.

I keep wondering a little bit about Al's book. It seems like it has been a global cooling this winter. But that is pretty darned close to political and I just don't go there. I admire that you knew when to take a break. Good for you. And great example to set for your kids!

Sometimes having an uneventful weekend is a good thing.

Jenners said...

Florida had better get its act together ... we are supposed to go on vacation soon and I want to be warm!!!

I saw the temps in Florida but my first thought it that the news got it wrong. Hope it's warming up soon.

I think I'm a bit too nervous to see Paranormal Activity.

Momisodes said...

Oy. My parents told me how cold it is down there. It's CRAZY!!! I hope you're keeping warm.

So sorry to hear about your patient. Sometimes it's impossible to check out from work completely when you work with patients.
I hope you have a much better week.

It's crazy cold, huh!?! We're hoping for some snow in the ATL tomorrow!!

Can you BELIEVE our weather???
My friends and I have been complaining about it to each other all over Facebook.
And I'm sick of people who don't live here calling us wimps! There is a reason we live here - it's because we want WARMTH!!
Don't worry about feeding the kids cereal for dinner, we've all had those days and they will be fine!
Hang in there!

Unknown Mami said...

I'm sending you a big cyber hug. No shame in your kids having cereal for dinner.

Helene said...

Wow, those are really unusual temps for FL!! That's what it's like right now in Northern CA!

Good to know Paranormal Activity was good...I've been wanting to see it!

I'm freezing my tail off in this balmy tropical weather. I hope that you have shaken off that horrible night by now. I'm sorry to hear it was so dreadful.
