weekend

We got about 16 inches of snow in 24 hours. Snow drifts are about 30 inches high–up to my waist. I have no clue how I’m going to get to work on Monday, as the stuff is all around my poor car.

My friend Sarah had to work today at a place located about 3/4ths of a mile from where I live. Instead of her driving all the way home in this crazy weather, she came over and hung out with me. It was the fastest six hours ever. Such a fun time. :)

A tire. Not sure how I’m going to make it to work Monday. I don’t have a shovel. But I do have hands and a broom, so it looks like I’m going to be digging instead of packing tomorrow. *sigh* I did a bit of digging today, and I cleaned off my car. My shoulders are totally aching.

Another tire. *cries*

I really, really, really hope this is the end of this stuff. It took me an hour to get home (8.8 miles) yesterday, and I was scared and tense the whole time. I know, I’m moving to Chicago where I am pretty much guaranteed to have this junk dumped on me on a bi-weekly basis, but at least there are trains in Chicago and I shouldn’t have to drive all the time or scrape my car or dig myself out of two-foot drifts on a weekly basis.

And tamirabeth and zenosidal were supposed to come over today just to hang out and help me pack stuff, but nope. They got snowed in as well. I’m going to have to make up for it this week and DEFINITELY do the kitchen tomorrow! I did manage to pack up some of my bedroom today. Not much more to go in there, it’s probably about 93% done. Aidan’s room is 100% done except for the toys that zenosidal is supposed to help me sort (so he can take some and I can take some and some can go to Goodwill or trash).

Temps are going down to the teens tonight. It’s still snowing. I’m worried all that stuff around my car will turn into ICE and really freeze me in!

And OH MY, I don’t have milk. (Not that it matters. I don’t like milk!) I do have bread though, and Cool Splashers (LOL), and stuff to make cupcakes. I was supposed to make them when Sarah was here, but time really ran away from us. Boo. I also have a kitchen full of stinky trash. Gotta love that.

I am REALLY grateful it wasn’t a workday for me. I hate feeling like I HAVE to go out in this stuff, I feel like I’m putting my life in jeopardy when I have to drive in weather like this.

Seriously, I hope winter’s DONE for now. I’m more than ready for spring.

BLIZZARD!

http://www.10tv.com

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The following counties in the 10TV viewing area are under snow emergencies as of 11:00 a.m. Saturday:

Level 3: Crawford, Delaware, Fayette, Hancock, Hocking, Knox, Madison, Morrow, Muskingum, Perry, Union, Vinton

Level 2: Athens, Champaign, Clark, Coshocton, Fairfield, Franklin, Greene, Hardin, Licking, Logan, Marion, Pickaway, Pike, Richland, Ross, Wyandot

Level 1: No counties are under Level 1 snow emergencies.

Snow Emergency Explanation

Level 1 Snow Emergency: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads are also icy; drive carefully.

Level 2 Snow Emergency: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Only those who believe it is necessary to drive should be out on the roadways. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.

Level 3 Snow Emergency: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one else should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel. All employees should contact their employers to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roadways may be subject to arrest.

kpluta, this is all your fault. The heavenly weather controller TOTALLY got the O states mixed up. Although how s/he could have confused Oklahoma with Ohio is beyond me.

I should go out and take pictures. I don’t have to drive in this crap today, so it’ll make for some pretty photos. It hasn’t snowed like this since Aidan was a new little baby, back in 2004. Thank God it’s happening over a weekend.

Sunday Evening

Last lazy Sunday for a long time.

Today, I slept in until noon, watched The O.C. on DVD, ate some of my wings and taters from Pizza Slut Hut, and baked some brownies. I also made a pitcher of Cool Splashers, which is Disney’s version of powdered drink mix (aka Kool-Aid). The Cool Splashers are a lot cheaper and OMG is the black cherry flavor addicting!

Now I am fresh out of the bath, and I have a pretty full calendar the next several days. That means I need to get to bed early so I won’t be exhausted and UNmovitated! Too much to do for me to be crashing right after work, yo.

I want spaghetti. I think I shall have some.

See ya.

Brr

I’m cold, even under the electric throw set on medium, which usually roasts my butt.

And I’d even gone over to the rental office this morning with only my short-sleeved shirt on, some running pants, and a hat. I felt warmer then! Weird.

Now I’m trying to decide what to eat. The problem is that I really want a steak, but that would mean going out to the store (I like to get them fresh and cook them the same day I buy them). So, I’m thinking of having spaghetti, even though I’ve already had it twice last week. Or I could try to finish off all my bacon, but I had some of that last night before bed. Hmm. Maybe I’ll order myself a pizza! I love that I can do it online, no need to talk to anyone on the phone! Or wings! My mouth is starting to water. Must eat soon!

I was so tired yesterday. I mean, I was fighting, fighting sleep. And the morning was going so slowly. THEN I looked over and remembered that I had a Red Bull on my desk. I always drink the sugar-free one because it only has 10 calories. I swear, within two minutes, I was alert and wide awake and happy. Finished all my work, had a good lunch with Heather, and had a decent workday. The afternoon sped by!

I got home, played on the computer for a while, and then RANDOMLY crashed like crazy at 7pm-ish! I woke up after 9, played on the computer again, and then I went back to bed early, about 11pm or 11:30 or so. Slept in until just after 10am, got a package from Mommy & Daddy Selzer, and then got some stuff organized, and I’m ahead on that front! So hmm, maybe I SHOULD treat myself to a pizza or wings or both! So, maybe an order of mild buffalo wings, some taters, and a Meat Lovers Personal Pan Pizza from Pizza Slut Hut. That’ll be (at least) two meals for me. And now they have these cute little mini-fried apple pies! I will want those, too! Eeek!

My mouth really is watering now, as I peruse the Web site…. :)

And, random Blogthing:


You Are a Dash


Your life is fast paced and varied. You are realistic, down to earth, and very honest.
You’re often busy doing something interesting, and what you do changes quickly.

You have many facets to your personality, and you connect them together well.
You have a ton of interests. While some of them are a bit offbeat, they all tie together well.

You friends rely on you to bring novelty and excitement to their lives.
(And while you’re the most interesting person they know, they can’t help feeling like they don’t know you well.)

You excel in: Anything to do with money

You get along best with: the Exclamation Point

What is UP with all these quizzes telling me I’m good with money??

Okay, food ordered. Didn’t get the little pies, though. I really want a chocolate brownie with M&Ms, or ANYthing cakey and chocolately with M&Ms involved. Hmm, I do have cake mix, eggs, and oil. Maybe I can arrange something….

Anyway, food’ll be here in about 30 minutes. YAY. :D

‘Til next time!

What You See Is What You Get
O Hai Gise!

This is me, just about as raw as I get. No makeup at all. Fresh out of the bath, in the middle of having dinner with Bizzy. She and Rob came over and we hung out and watched Across the Universe. Okay, we sorta watched it. Well, didn’t watch it much at all, actually. It was good to catch up.

And now, in other news. :)

Commence Randomness!
