I meant to write more over the weekend, but the days just got away from me.
So much so, in fact, that I woke up this morning thinking (hoping?) That today was Sunday.
For Valentine’s, not to beat a dead horse, but, I was one if those people in line at the last minute picking out a card. I know it’s contrived, but I like celebrating love. We don’t make a big fuss, but just a little something.
I ended up buying him a saucy birthday card, abd crossing out “biryhday” and writing “Valentine’s” hehe. I also snagged him a new mug since his favorite one recently shattered.
What’s cute, is that he actually does give up his coffee for me some days. And he’s the one to be a pot 90% of the time.
Love is not something I’ve ever been without, because my mom is a total sweet heart. I got her the same mug as Jeff, and she bought us chocolates and a sweet-as-honey card.
Anyway.. that brings us to today: Snow Drama, Monday edition.
I woke up to big fat snow flakes falling heavily this morning, blanketing the road like thick butter cream icing. My commute was really good, considering the conditions. I know the plows were out, but they couldn’t keep up with the snow. My car was pulled to the side every time my wheels came again the resistance of packed snow that didn’t go in the direction I was going (think intersections, merging on the highway, changing lanes..). What doubles the frustration is that I was supposed to have the day off.
The good news is that the bosses sprung for breakfast and lunch, AND, it was healthy. Thank goodness! What’s even better, is these same bosses cleared off everyone’s cars when the snow stopped so that when we went home, we wouldn’t have to.
I should mention, I don’t work for a small company. There were a lot of cats to clear! It was their way of saying “thank you” and they did it with a smile:
After work, I was able to get the grocery shopping done. I keep seeing it all over the place, so I actually picked up some Brussels sprouts to roast tonight. I also nabbed some fruit that week be quick and easy for grab-n-go snacking this week. Plus: it’s a super nice splash of color in an otherwise blah landscape. Can winter be done now? ╮(╯▽╰)╭
