Iced In

Yesterday morning while sitting at work I noticed that it was sleeting outside. The 'constantly over exaggerating weathermen' had said it was going to ice, but to be honest I didn't believe them.

Please forgive my doubts, because boy did it ice.

Have you ever sat on a college campus and watched people walk to class as fast as they can on ice? Lets just say its pretty funny. And to top it off, the majority of college kiddos have no idea how to dress when it comes to freezing temps. I can say this honestly, because I was once of them. I saw several without coats, and more than 2 with FLIP FLOPS, walking in the ice. Yes crazy.

So anyways, school was canceled so that means I got to go home! Well Luke g-chatted me and said he got to go home for the afternoon but he was going to stop by the grocery store first and get us some food for night and probably next day. What did I want?

Well I hadn't eaten a thing that day (breakfast has never been a friend of mine) so this is how my list read:
Bread
Starburst Jellybeans
Cookie Dough
Stewed Tomatoes
Cheese
Something sweet and gummy (aside from the jelly beans)
and cereal

The necessities of life when there is an Ice Storm coming.

So Luke got home started making some delicious stew and threw my Sour Patch Kids in front of me.

For some reason they didn't look as good as they sounded an hour ago.

Then when the stew was done I couldn't even make myself look at it, and the smell was getting to me.

15 minutes later I started throwing up. The stomach virus going around finally got to me.

I will spare you the details but my iced in days so far have contained lots of sleep, Saltine Crackers and lots o lots of water. I really need 7Up and my sweet hubby has offered numerous times to go get some, but I really don't want him going out on the ice. It makes me nervous!

In other news: Yesterday was our 6 month anniversary. I never really pictured what our 6 month anniversary would look like, but me hanging my head in the toilet with Luke bringing me water is not what I had imagined.

The day of our wedding I checked to make sure he didn't have any food in this teeth before we took pics.
On our 6 month he took care of me while I was sick, Don't worry, I don't have a picture of that.


I am still staring at the bag of Sour Patch Kids wishing I could eat them!!!

I absolutely love tour wedding pictures, they are sooo beautiful! Congrats on 6 months!

I hope you feel better and can get to those sour patch kids soon. My tummy bug lasted exactly 24 hours, but man I wanted to die during that day. Then I was fine and eating anything in sight because I was starving!!!

The ice storm is on it's way to my house, as well. Unfortunately, I'm not as prepared as you...I didn't even think of getting sour patch kids...an obvious necessity. :)

Happy 6 month Anniversary...your wedding photos are just gorgeous.

I hope you feel better soon, sweet girl!

((HUGS))

Suzanne said...

I hope you're feeling better! I've been in the same boat. Jax started getting sick Sunday night. I went to work yesterday, came home early...and was hit w/ the virus by 4:00! NOT fun...

At least we're iced in!!

jlc said...

What a GREAT pic!!! This is such a classic pose my husband would make. :)


Hope by now the nasty bug is gone, and that you were able to indulge on some SPK! My guilty pleasure are Swedish Fish. Mmmmm.
