As promised, we got quite the snowfall overnight, and today the husband and I both got a snow day! I love snow days because they’re the perfect excuse to stay home with the husband all day and be lazy get lots of stuff done! We’ve now found out that we’ll be having another snow day tomorrow. On my agenda: pack pack pack. We have three weeks left in our house, and I haven’t boxed up one thing. eek.
Unfortunately I really wasn’t too productive today…but I don’t really feel bad about it. We slept in about an hour later than usual and then got up and made some amazing breakfast.
I used a whole wheat boxed mix and then spread natural peanut butter on one half and Earth Balance on the other. Topped with pure maple syrup and banana slices. So gooooood.
After breakfast we got a little bit of work done in the office and then layered up and spent some time out in the snow!
This was the most snow we’ve had this year by far, and it was so pretty.
Olive is the funniest thing – she isn’t a big fan of the snow and acts like she’s going to die if she has to be in it for more than about 5 seconds. We took her out with us for about 10 minutes and she was trembling all over in her little coat. Poor baby. At one point, she and the husband were on the porch and I was out in the yard, so I started calling to her, trying to get her to come to me. She minds us so well that when I started calling her she kept thinking about coming, but really didn’t want to get in the snow. Finally I won her over.
She lasted about four seconds. But it sure was cute.
We spent the rest of the afternoon napping, cuddling, watching movies, eating…and now at 11pm we’re finally getting some work done. That’s the way we roll I guess.
In other news, I know I talked about this a little bit already, but I’ve decided to try and get a full-time job. I figure the husband and I could really use the money as we’re moving into our new house, and seeing as how we’re becoming “live-ins” with one of our sets of parents, I don’t think I want to be home all the time! I’m really struggling with what to do during this transition period. I really want to keep doing what I’ve been doing – tutoring, yoga, working on the biz – but I think it would be beneficial for me to branch out and try something new (full-time) for awhile. Once we have little ones, I want to be a stay-at-home mom, so now’s the time if I want to work again.
Some of the ideas so far (some far better than others): zoo worker, Starbucks shift manager, emergency dispatcher, and the one that I’ve actually applied for and am somewhat excited about – supervisor for a children’s program at a hospital. I’ve also considered going back to teaching, but I really need something right now.
If you guys have any great ideas – send them my way!!
And now for some random thoughts to end the evenings:
- I am missing Thailand so much lately! I can’t stop thinking about it.
- It’s always a bad idea go out in foot deep snow wearing ankle socks
- Splitting a 1lb bag of peanut m&m’s with your husband over the course of 2 days is not wise
- Never wait until the night before a snowstorm to hit up Walmart
- If you are on city water and you lose electricity, you WILL still have water
- Old houses = cold
I’m off now to get some sleep – my eyes are getting very heavy. Hope you all had a great Tuesday!
Did you get any snow? What kind of job do you do (if you don’t mind sharing!)?
