so it was the first white christmas new york has had since 1969. it was so weird! it was raining for the first half of the day. then it started to sleet at around 3:00 p.m. when my family was coming home from port washington. my family thought about going to see “catch me if you can” yesterday, but then my mom opened the door and told us that there was much too much snow. i didn’t believe her, and went to check outside. whoa! there was like a good 6 inches! we ended up shoveling the snow at around 11 pm. we were the only crazy people shoveling, but wow there was a lot of snow! might i mention that the snow was super heavy? i think this is the first i’ve shoveled snow since i’ve gone away for college. my arms hurt from all that shoveling. we also had to dig out our car which was parked in the street. i saw the a street plow circling our block and i reported this sighting to my sisters. we worked hard in digging out our car as fast as we can because we feared the street plower would just bury our car back in. my older sister ended up parking the car in our driveway so that when the plow came, it wouldn’t repile all the snow back onto our driveway. we finished at around 12:10 a.m. wow i was so sore. my back and arms! i felt like an old lady. snow is so pretty when it hasn’t been shoveled or salted.
oh so my family rescheduled our movie outing to today. we were lucky enough to catch a bargain matinee showing of “catch me if you can”. it was a good movie i must say. leo didn’t suck like he did in “titanic” or “the beach”. i recommend that you guys see it. it is about a real guy who stole 4 million dollars from the united states before he was even 19! isn’t that crazy. after the movie, my family and i went to cpk for dinner. it was yummy. when we finished dinner, it was time to finish our last minute christmas shopping. we still haven’t officially celebrated christmas because we are going to massachusetts to celebrate with my cousins. diana and i had to get the rest of my aunt’s gift. we were lucky enough to find it at the mall. i can now say that i am officially done with christmas shopping! wooha! i’m currently reading anthony bourdain’s book. he’s the guy on food network who travels all over the world and eats really strange food. i really like his dry sense of humor. hehe. he is so blunt and normal in his book. he is just like that on his show! speaking of food network, i really miss watching all those cooking shows. it sucks that i don’t have food network at home. it’s considered to be a “premium” channel. grr. anyway, my family and i will be going to massachusetts to meet up with the rest of my family tomorrow. i am anticipating another traditional family food fest. i can’t wait! bring on the food! good night!
