Day 4 in solitary

Tomorrow is day four of SNOW WEEK 2011.  S doesn't have school, I don't have anywhere to was amazing on Monday, okay on Tuesday, less than exciting today, but tomorrow?  Let's get this thing over with already!

This little image, courtesy of an Atlanta resident on facebook explains our predicament nicely.

Here's what we've done so far:
  • Found out school's canceled!  Do the happy dance!
  • Sleep in.
  • Go for a hike.  The snow is beautiful!
  • Watch local new coverage.  Guess what??? It snowed ALL OVER THE CITY!
  • Drink a warm beverage.
  • Take a nap.
  • Play Wii.
  • Bake banana muffins.  Aren't snow days the best?
  • Take pictures of the amazing miracle of snow.
  • Watch local news coverage.  There's still snow.
  • Cook dinner.  
  • Have a Frasier marathon.  
  • Found out school's canceled again!  Yay!
  • Sleep in.
  • Wonder what to do.
  • Watch local news coverage.
  • Finish a book.
  • Clean out a closet.
  • Drink a warm beverage.
  • Watch more local news coverage.
  • Wonder what to do.
  • Play more Wii.
  • Really?  School's canceled again?
  • Once again force Buddy to go do his business in the ice.  What happened to the snow?
  • Enjoy the hospitality of nearby friends.  Carefully walk to their house.
  • Sleep in.  Why get up?
  • Three days at home, shouldn't we be accomplishing something?
  • Oh look, it's still there.
  • Walk our trash down to the dumpster.  It was necessary.  But dangerous.
  • Thank God for our four-wheel drive SUV and go to REI.
  • Guess what?  When there's snow on the ground it turns out you need EVERYTHING at REI!  We would totally use this!!!
  • Pay off S's car!  (A pretty good high point.)
  • Celebrate with a careful drive to Community Q BBQ.
  • Take a nap.
  • Oh, look, white stuff's still there.
  • Wonder what to do.
  • Oh, look, school's canceled again.  Sheesh.
  • Create our own Mythbusters marathon via Netflix instant play.
  • Drink a warm beverage. 
  • Watch local news coverage.  Can't get enough!
  • Wonder what to do.
  • Exhaust the contents of the internet.
  • Redesign blog in honor of current weather conditions.
  • Wonder what to do.
 What magic will tomorrow bring?  Only time will tell.  In the meantime, we are grateful for a warm house and plenty of food. 


  1. can you do a new project? try a complicated dish? do your nails? make a baked good? write me a letter? learn how to knit? teach buddy a new trick? :)

    hope y'all thaw out soon!

  2. i guess i left some things out! to add to the list:

    -painted my nails pink. then red.
    -started a new pillow project.
    -started teaching buddy to go to his kennel when someone comes to the door.
    -made muffins from scratch for the first time.

    guess i'll get started on a complicated dish, learning to knit, and that letter! :-) actually, i do want to learn to knit. maybe my pre-phd goal?
