Guess What?

It's snowing and it's Thursday! Whoot!

We may or may not be delayed for work tomorrow. Whatever.

I have plans with my writing friends for dinner tomorrow night. Looking forward to it - last time we were missing over half, so I'm glad we found a night that works for all of us.

We'll either head out for the grocery store tomorrow night or first thing Saturday. Joy, but an adventure to be sure.

We ordered Chinese food for dinner tonight. We did have a plan for dinner, but we got home at the same time and neither of us felt much like cooking. It was a good choice.

I had my work review today. Which was good. Little raise. Little bit of compliments. I'll take it. It was a crazy, crazy day though. It didn't look like I did a lot of work by my metrics, but let me tell you that's not true at all. I felt like a crazy person.

That is all...

Please Let it be True...

Oh yeah with the snow in the forecast.

Tomorrow night - well, whatever. I'd rather it not snow too much during the week anyway. It messes up time and work flow and uses up valuable paid time off. Not to say I wouldn't take it if Mother Nature decided to dump on us mid-week.

But the weekend - it will depend on the temperature, but the potential for a major snowstorm is there. (Wait for me to whine about it being just rain or a tiny bit of snow on Sunday, because if we don't get the storm, I will be whining and crying.) I really, really hope we get dumped on though!

That Man and I just realized we'll need to go to the store. I mean, we'll need to anyway, but our timeline will need to be backed up if the major storm is a go. Typically, we go on Sunday.

And that's not going to be a fun time. We'll skip the bread, milk, eggs, and toilet paper sections since we don't need any of that. Well, maybe eggs, but that's a normal. Okay. Wait. We need bread, too, but we buy a loaf every week, so there. And we're talking about our normal shopping anyway. We never have milk since neither of us drink it and we're good on the toilet paper.


I'm so excited! That Man typically plows snow and he's rarely here for a storm. The fact that he will be is awesome! I'm thinking about what cool things I want to cook. I'm thinking about how to structure my writing days. I also have some critiquing to do, so I need to fit that in there.

I know. I know. I'm getting myself all worked up over something that might not happen.

But it might...

Too much like a Monday. Just saying...

We're due for more winter weather. On Thursday and again this weekend. Thursday is just supposed to be a fly by, but I'm so hopefully for the storm this weekend! The first report I heard was that  it was supposed to be massive and I'm holding to that. Snowed in! That's what I want! I'm not kidding!

I will prep for being snowed in and I might just pretend I am snowed in this weekend. We'll see what happens! Ha! It's only Tuesday, so...

Writing is commencing. My house is warm. My bed is waiting.

That is all.

Snowy Sunday...

Yay, snow!!!

It's not much at all! Definitely not a snowpocalypse or even more than a nuisance snow, but it's pretty and I like it. So does the dog.

Got to see the Mr. B's yesterday! Thursday was big Mr. B's birthday, so we gathered presents and went to see him. We hadn't seen them since Christmas day because of the sickness with the exception of K1 stopping by on occasion. So that was good.

I did sleep in both days, and despite my goal of taking a nap today, it didn't happen. I tried though. That Man made an awesome stew for dinner. K4 did her laundry and so did we. I stayed in my jammies all day, finished Simon's critique, wrote words of my own, updated the check book, cleaned house a little...

Now K3's friend is here working on Dungeon's and Dragon's stuff with K4. K3 is not here yet. But he should be soon.

Tomorrow is back to the grind. Not looking forward to it. At all. Though I am looking forward to the potential for good stuff coming along soon.

Feel Good Friday... The Last Monday of the Week...

For this week. I'm pretty sure next week is also going to be another week of Monday, but it's too soon to know for sure...

Let's get to the Feel Good list...

1. K4 home for the weekend... Orthodontist appointment that fit perfectly into her schedule, Good first week of the new semester. But a cold coming on - at least she gets to semi-rest this weekend. She has commitments and other commitments, but it's all good. She gets to sleep longer than normal, which is important for the cold. She just took medicine and went to bed, so there's that.

2. That Man finally feeling better. Neither of us are back to 100% yet.  What kind of illness does this? It's been over two weeks now? Granted, we're doing our thing, but the exhaustion is real. We feel lame and stupid for not doing the things we really want to do. But sleeping... Oy!

3. Not technically cooking tonight. Only a tiny bit of prep. We had planned to get the pre-cooked fried chicken at the grocery store, but the dude who makes it was on break. When he returned, he said it would be twenty minutes. I'd already been at the store for longer than that, so I bailed and we did make your own subs for dinner, which was fine and good, but why the hell don't you have fried chicken at 5:45 on a Friday night? Ridiculous!

4. Co-workers. The only way any of us actually live through the day job is because we're a solid team. It's the truth.

5. Sleeping in tomorrow. Yess!

6. The potential for snow this weekend. I am all about that!

That is all!

Another Monday!

Yeah. It's Thursday! But it was still like Monday! It's been a solid week of Monday!

I'm not kidding.

So, It's freaking, freaking cold out. Like the wind will rip your skin off your bones cold. That's no lie. Well. Maybe it's an exaggeration, but it's still no lie. I need to get gas in the morning, and I'm angry about that. Plus, I lost a glove! Yes, I have other gloves, but these gloves are super warm and super special and I'm pissed about it!

Talked to my aunt tonight. She cracks me up. She's dealing with clearing out my great uncle's house and her stories are incredible.

Today is Mr. B's birthday. He's 6 now. He's an amazingly smart and funny kid! We video chatted tonight and... he makes me laugh hysterically. We also got to see little Mr. B through chat! That was cool. We haven't seen either of them since Christmas due to the evil flu! Yeah, I know it's been about two weeks, but that flu was so evil there was no way we were taking chances with our babies!

Tomorrow is Friday. This weekend is pretty chill with I hope some sleeping in and a bunch of writing.

That is all.

Second Monday...

Seriously, It is!

It was quiet this morning at the day job. That didn't last too long. By afternoon I was crazier than a one-armed paper hanger and that's no lie. It's like everyone and their brother decided today was the day to send their emails, make their phone calls, and get stuff done.


Tomorrow will be more of the same. My reps were on the road today and all said that they needed copious office time due to their phone calls and emails, so more is coming. One of two of them work in the evenings on occasion, so who knows what I'll face in the morning?

The best part about this week so far is talking (in some form) to each of my kids. K1 stopped by for some stuff tonight. K2 and I instant messaged last night. K3 and I talked last night. K4 and I talked after I got off work yesterday. That's all good stuff right there.

It's not quite time to look ahead to the weekend. I've heard there's a chance of weather. Yay! I really hope it snows its behind off! But I doubt that will happen!

Tomorrow is Wednesday. I hope I survive.

Off to try to get a few words on the page...
