Sheets, Not The Streets

Is Mother Nature a little extra these days, or is it just winter? It’s winter!
If you’re watching the news in the morning as I do, you might think that this is something new for the East Coast in January.

Over the weekend, the media pushed the ICE fear any chance they got. Beware of untreated sidewalks. Freezing rain. Treacherous road conditions. Ice, ice baby.

This tragedy was to occur early Sunday morning. Now, I could care less if I don’t have anywhere to go, but my furballs, a/k/a Peanut & Landie, have to go somewhere to go, if you know what I mean.

As the best dog mother in the world, I set the alarm for 5:00 a.m. to get them out to do their biz before the ice age began.

My bougie fur babies enjoy the comforts of my king-sized bed and down comforter. They’re for the sheets, not the streets.

Peanut & Landie

Living Their Best Life

So, waking them from their lap of luxury to head into the dark artic air is a big freaking deal. It’s even bigger when you have to add coats, collars, leashes, and sidewalks loaded with rock salt.

In the end, it would all be worth it. We’ll be able to cuddle on the couch, knowing we dodged a potential broken back slipping as I tried to wrangle two little fur babies on an ice rink.

I thought ahead. I prepared for the worst. Only to have Mother Nature throw a curveball that ended with a forecast of “It will be warm and sunny unless it’s an ice age.”

If nothing else, this was a reminder that you can have all your ducks in a row, or your ducks can be running wild; we’re not in charge, so do your best and Enjoy the Ride!

  2. Love your title, and can you blame them? Who wants to pee outside. I sure don’t.

    I must say, it’s wonderful how well dressed they are, though sound like the Gabor sisters, with all those accessories, then of course we’d be into cross-dressing. We Italians just don’t do that. Imagine Sonny in heels.

    As far as false reportage goes, the media deserves a good smack the way it scares the sh-t out of you My local market looked as if the Blitz was expected as they bought their overpriced pate and salmon heading to their 5th Ave bunkers, and they all have dogs and walkers that come to freeze along with Rin Tin Tin and Lassie who, Peanut and Landie might even know from the dog network. Hey, don’t think for a second they’re not flippin’ those channels when you’re at work. I hear things.

    Nice that you’re writing. Your fans miss you. Really Lisa, write more.

    WOOF!!!

    1. Hahaha! Honestly, between the weather and Omicron I can barely watch the news. No doubt they run this house when I’m gone. Yesterday, I left Luther Vandross on the tv to babysit with his butter voice, and when I got to the car I thought “Peanut is going to be humping that stuffed animal with Luther on.”

      1. That’s so funny. Only you would have dogs who could headline in the Catskils. 🙂

  3. Not much happened here weather wise either. Weather forecasting is one profession where you can be wrong most of the time and still get paid.

  4. Weather forecasters love to scare us, don’t they? Not “rain” but “atmospheric river.” But, even here in SoCal, I’m glad I don’t have to go outside to pee.

  5. It’s like the media are more focused on panicking the public instead of informing them. I never trust weather reports any more.

  6. Ice and snow is pretty much all we’ve had for days. I think fur babies have ice skates here.
