Is there an acceptable way to wear winter boots and knee high wool socks all while looking professional? Because I need that fashion today.
Dig your car out of two feet of snow and when you discover it is stuck and your neighbor offers to help, rock/shove the car out while he does the pedals. Also, it’s 3 degrees F and I’ve been up since 4:30.
You may call me Super Snow Woman.
I am calling it a night.
I don’t quite have words.
#1: The bus stopped so I finally had transportation to school.
#2: Microfleece tights.
#3: There is a mocha in my hand, It is warm and delicious.
#4: No classes, but a lot of conferences. This is both awesome (I love chatting with students) and exhausting.
#5: Usual Big Thursday Meeting has been canceled. YES!
#6: Dad is picking my brother and I up for dinner tonight and bringing me a new shovel. Did I mention that it’s his birthday and he’s being so generous? (He prefers spending time with us over gifts, but we baked cookies as part 2 of his gift.)
This day might be okay.
There is a late start tomorrow morning, which totally fucks up my classes. I now have two meetings left with my students and a lot to pack into those three hours.
Amazing how fast “awesome! snow day” became “fucking snow day.”
This attitude might also come from the fact that I shoveled a lot and it looks like I did nothing.
|Lil' Bro:||Do you have a shovel?|
|NiP:||Yes. Where is yours?|
|Lil' Bro:||Not in my trunk. Can I borrow it?|
|NiP:||Sure.||15 minutes later Lil' Bro shows up with a veggie burrito from a local delicious restaurant, gets shovel, and walks the five blocks home.||Later....|
|Lil' Bro:||You're an awesome sister.|
|Lil' Bro:||I owe you a shovel. I may have broken yours.||Nothing to do but laugh.|
SNOW DAY TOMORROW!!!!
Sure! I found some of these through Rav and others through recommendations. I generally keep an eye on these and usually keep myself in control (but not yesterday). Enjoy!
In alphabetical order:
Also, snow is accumulating quite quickly today… Most places would get a snow day tomorrow, but we’re “tough” (and just came off a break) so that is unlikely to happen.
