Another Blizzard

Today we woke up to MORE SNOW! At this point I wasn't even surprised. The weathermen accurately predicted the storm last week and so I figured they would be correct in their predictions for the storm this week.

So Luke and I spent another snow day at home. I have to admit it wasn't as fun as last week's snow storm.

I'm not sure why that is. Maybe because at this point a snow day is just old hat? Or possibly because I made the megan-has-gained-too-much-weight decision and opted not to get an Coke while at the grocery store so then I was stuck indoors with only water. The HORROR.

As soon as we left the grocery store last night I knew my decision to not get my precious Coke had been the wrong one. However I knew that according to the scale it was actually the right decision.

I turned down many offers by Luke to stop at various convenience stores along the way home to get me some Coke. I felt so pathetic, surely I could go a day without that poison.

And I am proud to say that I have. It wasn't without pain, tears and whining, but it did indeed happen.

I also wasn't as productive on this snow day as I was on the 3 snow days last week. Last week I kicked some major To-Do-List booty. Today, not so much.

Luke spent the day looking at cars on the internet (we are still a one car family for the time being) and I spent the day looking around at everything that needed to be done and then avoiding it.

Avoidance is one of my spiritual gifts.

I wish I had a picture to show of all the snow we got, or even a pretty picture of the snow falling from the sky, but I wasn't about to go outside. The windchill was somewhere around 10 below zero. No. Thank. You.

So basically my snow day can be summed up as this:
1. whining about now having Coke
2. feeling pathetic about whining about not having Coke
3. Realizing that I'm addicted to Coke and need to get a grip
4. Decided that I don't care if I'm addicted I need it
5. Avoiding household chore that were calling my name

All in all it was a good day.

We finished up the day by enjoying a roast with potatoes and carrots that Luke had put in the crock pot this morning. And also watching American Idol. I am really loving it this season. I was nervous about Steven Tyler and JLo but I love them.

So this is the story of how we spent our second Oklahoma Blizzard of 2011.

Call me crazy but I could handle another blizzard. I'm really not sure if I remember what it's like to work a full week!

Do not fret! I had a HUGE To-Do List, but I spent my Snow Day watching about 6 hours of TV... including 2 hours of random Ally McBeal on some channel I didn't even know we had. And I'm still in the PJ pants I was wearing when I woke up... I did change my shirt... but only b/c I spilled a big chunk of Chinese pork down the front :)

I put a roast in the crock pot this morning too! Along with carrots and potatoes. It's the perfect cold-weather meal :-)

I'm so jealous of your 2nd blizzard. I want some days off work!

Man I can't believe how much snow you guys are getting. It's just as cold up here but we only have a foot maybe a foot and a half on the ground. And only one snow day.

I understand your Coke addiction. I have one too. It's bad.

Avoidance is one of my spiritual gifts as well! For Christmas, I was going to clean my bedroom/closet out. Annnnd it's now almost halfway through February. Yay me!
