I don't know what has gotten into Jimmy, but I like it! Today as we were leaving to go meet Zac for lunch in Richmond Jimmy said that when we returned he was going to build a snowman. My first thought was, is this my husband or has someone kidnapped him? This is a man who I have begged for years to come play out in the snow with me and the other day he surprised me when I asked him to make me a snow angel and he said, "Okay." Just like that, no arguing or prodding.
We stopped on the way home from lunch to pick up a few things at the store and while I was putting them away Jimmy disappeared and then came back inside and asked me to look out the window at the big snowball. I couldn't believe what I saw so I just stopped what I was doing and went out with him and began rolling up another snowball for the snowman's head while Jimmy rolled up a bigger one for the middle. We put our snowman together and began looking for arms, eyes, hat and so forth. I know our snowman isn't perfect, but it was fun and he's ours...our first snowman.
I don't know what has gotten into Jimmy lately....maybe he has just finally mellowed like a fine wine, but whatever the reason I like it. All of you that know Jimmy know that he hates snow, cold weather and winter, in no particular order, so for him to suggest that we make a snowman came as quite a big surprise to me. What do you think? Is he going through his second childhood or just being nice(r)? Or maybe it's something more sinister.....you be the judge.
