Thank You, Snowmageddon!

I just got the best phone call! (Well, the best 2 phone calls actually...the school calls us with their automated system, yet makes the staff use the phone chain as well. It's silly, if you ask me, to do both! We all feel awkward calling each other after getting the automated phone call 10 minutes earlier. I digress...) We officially do not have school tomorrow, thanks to round two of "Snowmageddon 2010." It's coming down like crazy out there! And we already have close to two feet on the ground from the weekend. There are already piles of snow surrounding parking lots that are easily taller than my 5'2 body. So, quite frankly, I don't know what we are going to do with the 6-12 inches we are going to get tonight and tomorrow. This is the most snow I can remember getting in a long time!

I have a few things to take care of on my snow day tomorrow, but after I finish those, I plan on spending the day reading and watching movies :-) I'm going to FINALLY finish "The Shack." I started it a month ago, and then stopped in the middle, read three books, and finally feel ready to finish it. I do this a lot, because there are just way too many books that I want to read, and I can't read just one at a time.

Yesterday I finished "His Needs, Her Needs." It was an EXCELLENT book. I think I may have liked this one even more than "Love and Respect." It is very straightforward, and tells it like it is. It talks about the 5 needs most important to men and to women. It was a very easy read, and so interesting! I learned so much!

Over the weekend I had so much fun watching a few movies while we were snowed in! I finished "Doubt," which turned out to be really good. However, the ending was a little ambiguous. And that really gets to me. I hate movies that don't have a definite resolution at the end, because I just want to know what really happened! It really made me think, though, and I liked that about it. Later I watched "Penelope." It was the cutest movie I've seen in a really long time! The sets and costumes were very whimsical, colorful, and beautiful. I loved it! And the story was just too adorable. You should watch it if you've never seen it. And finally, I watched "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist." This one was just kind of "eh" to me. Not good, not bad. And there was one part that was so gross I felt nauseous. I probably wouldn't watch that one again. (I know, I watched a LOT of movies. But it just felt like the right thing to do since we were snowed in ;-))

Tomorrow I think I'll try to watch "The Ramen Girl" and maybe "Rachel Getting Married." Have you seen either of these? I'm hoping they're good! Instant Netflix has become my new time-waster :-P

Well I think it's time to take a HOT shower since I just can't seem to warm up, and get ready to watch The Duggars! Seriously, who else just can't get enough of this family??

I thought I'd leave with a picture I took yesterday...the picture doesn't do it justice. It literally took my breath away yesterday on my way to work. Every branch on every tree the whole way there was completely covered in sparkly snow. BEAUTIFUL!


  1. Oh, I am jealous of your snow day! Have some fun at home for me!

  2. Snow days = fun!! I love to hear about the books you read!! :-)

  3. Lucky you! I wish I'd get a snow day! ;-)
    I'll have to check out Penelope - I was wondering if that one would be any good.

  4. We've gotten more snow this year than I remember getting in my entire life! Such a crazy year, but I'm really enjoying the snow! :)

  5. Great picture!

    So glad you enjoyed "Penelope"! :)

    I want a snow day... all my days at home lately are because I've been sick and have pretty much slept all the time. I was a FUN snow day at home!!


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
