Houesbound and loathing it.....

Now that we're on the subject of winter activities, it seems to me that snowball fights are about the only winter exercise Elly seems to get. That's because she doesn't seem to be able to cope too well with the sort of cold weather John grew up dealing with. (My guess is that having spent most of her life in Vancouver where it rarely snows messed with her head and made her forget that most Canadians aren't as lucky as she was.) That's why she usually can be found standing in the garage with her brow all furrowed because the dogs are taking too long peeing. Simply put, she doesn't want to go out in the cold. We also have to remind ourselves that the winter sports that don't bore her terrify her. Despite ferrying Mike to his games for most of his early childhood, we can tell that she doesn't get the point of hockey and, as we'll see in fifteen years or so, watching skiing makes her damned near wet herself. The end result of her fear of snow is that she spends most of the winter inside yelling at the children because she insists on having company feeling miserable. When spring comes, she has something new to feel bad about: not having her children underfoot.
