So the "getting snowed in" part was a little bit of an exaggeration, but we did get 6 inches or so, and I was more than happy to have nowhere to go this morning. Instead I watched the Today show with oatmeal and a coffee. The oatmeal didn't last long though.... gosh how I love breakfast.
Step two, cover up your workout gear and 99.9% of your body with a snowsuit. Beanie on top optional.
Step three, start shoveling. Don't be deceived by the areas cleared by the bone-chilling wind, there really was 6 inches everywhere else!
And soon enough, it looked like this...
Then I pulled my poor frozen car into the garage to thaw out. Note to self: next house needs a TWO car garage!
Then it was time to get all prettied up to go apply for jobs. I didn't think finding a little part-time job would be such a lengthy process... thankfully I only want a job and don't necessarily need one.
I passed this cute little Greek place on my way and was so excited to see a "now open" sign out front. I've been hoping for months that the paper-covered windows meant they were opening soon and not recently shut down. I was right- can't wait to try it!
One bajillion applications later, it was time for some serious...
...serious grocery shopping.
I also found an awesome deal along the way. A super cute Pitt fleece for less than $5. Have I mentioned lately how in love I am with Target?
ETA: I wore the new fleece to work on Saturday and had this conversation with one of my 4 year olds.
Kiddo: Why'd you stick your finger through your shirt?
Me: It's made like that to keep your hands warm. See?
Kiddo: Oh. (20 second pause) But how do you take it off? Don't your hands get stuck?
My 3-4 year olds totally make getting up at 7am every Saturday worth it!
