So, I'm sitting at home today because north Texas is paralyzed by a huge ice storm. Okay, it wasn't really a huge ice storm, and as of right now, we are not really "paralyzed" (but I'm still not leaving the comfort of my 70 degree apartment). We maybe got about an inch or two of ice (if that), BUT, in the state of Texas, if you say the "i" word (ice) or the "s" word (which could be sleet or snow), we all start going like this...
...because we can't handle it. No seriously, we can't. I know, all of you who live up north are laughing at us. And you know what, that is okay. Because I don't want to live someplace where cold is normal. Or where 27 degrees (above freezing) isn't consider an "Arctic Blast". I also don't think I want to live in a place where the threat of ice/sleet/snow doesn't cause school and work closures.
Last night before it even started sleeting, most school districts were canceling classes for today because of the threat of sleet and ice throughout the night and the early part of today. My boss texted me a little before 8:00 last night saying our offices were going to be closed. We rarely close for bad weather, so I was super excited. In fact, this was me after I got the text...
I thought I would take a break from my day long Murdoch Mysteries marathon and do a quick Mobile Monday update (again, I don't think this is a link up anymore, but I'm using the idea).
|Laugh all you want, but I've spent the day in my warm, comfy bed (complete with flannel sheets), drinking hot tea, and streaming TV shows on my laptop. :)|
I met up with the BFF on Saturday (back when it was a balmy 60 degrees) for some MUCH NEEDED girl time (we haven't been able to hang out, just the two of us, in I don't know how long). We had lunch at this great pizza place called Campania. I had never been there before (so I can add that to my 101 in 1001 list as the 7th restaurant that I had never been to.) We spent a few hours there talking then headed over to Barnes & Noble (because why wouldn't we?) I was strong and didn't buy anything. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done, but I managed to walk out of there book-free. It was a miracle. Lol.
I forgot to post this last week. My sweet manager gave all of us daisies (which so happens to be my favorite flower). This was during that bad week I had, so it made me feel a lot better! :)
Sometimes a friend will send you a message that is just the reminder you needed to hear. My sweet friend Christie sent me this the other day. I definitely needed to read it!
My niece Rebecca texted me this picture of her son, J, earlier today. My sweet boy is growing up so fast, I haven't seen him in so long! Those cheeks are just begging for kisses from Aunt Rachel!
|See- these are the last pictures I have with him. I definitely need a trip to see him. He's getting so big! He won't even know me.|
