Good morning! I’m working from home today. Our 63 degree temps are now below freezing and there is supposedly a major ice storm a brewin’. Honestly, it doesn’t seem like it’s doing much out there. But the news channels are predicting an apocalypse, so I guess we’ll see.
But let’s back up to last night. I tried something for dinner that Janetha has been raving about for the past few days.
Peanut butter oats paired with some nonfat greek yogurt and huge blackberries that were on sale at Target – so good! Side note: homegirl needs some new bowls, no? I have no idea what that gray line is but it’s permanent not some random food residue.
All mixed up. Winner, winner oatmeal dinner
I was planning to head to the gym this morning, but I spent the whole morning instead wrestling with the decision of whether or not to go into work. I just kept having flashbacks of Christmas Eve when I went in and then ended up spending 4 hours trying to make the 30 minute commute home. I chatted with a few coworkers online while trying to decide what to do.
Also, being the brilliant person that I am I blended up a smoothie to drink even though it’s freezing out there I sipped on the smoothie while staring out the window trying to decide what to do.
Like I said, it wasn’t really doing anything so I was really thinking I should go in. But then I turned to the news.
They just kept insisting that it was going to be a catastrophic event and that people shouldn’t be out driving unless they absolutely had to. So I decided to stay home. It will probably not do anything now since I decided to stay home since the time that I actually decided to go in there was a blizzard. Needless to say, I feel guilty. But I’m really hoping I did the right thing.
I set up shop in the spare room with my loaner work laptop so I could attempt to work as best I can. I don’t have access to all my files, so it’s hard.
So that’s where I’ll be for the day. I’ve already started feeling mighty snacky since I’m off of my routine and stuck in the house, but I’m going to try keep to my usual meal/snack schedule that I have at work.
I’ll be back later as long we keep our power
Have you ever been in a major ice storm?
In 2002, right after I got my driver’s license, we got an intense ice storm and lost power in my town for over two weeks! That was an interesting experience. It’s crazy how life changes when you have no electricity. We get a lot more of those in Oklahoma than we do snow storms. Fun stuff
