More Snow, Seriously?

As if the two feet we currently have sitting outside weren’t enough…more snow. This is only a few inches, so it’s nothing to write home about (but is enough to blog about, it seems). I feel like we’ve had more snow in February than we have had in the past two years.

In other news, my Chinese New Year party on Saturday went swimmingly. Although not everyone could make it due to snow/rescheduled flights, everyone who attended got along well enough and the food turned out edible, always a worry when you’re the one cooking. The downside is I’m still washing dishes from it, but that’s okay. I had a blast and I really am happy I followed through and didn’t have a panic attack.

Sunday, the day that shall not be name, was fine. I had a sweetheart ride with my sweetie and then napped. After baking brownies and cookies, I went to KFC with my parents and gave them their gifts. It was very laid back but highly enjoyable. Small things in life and all that jazz.

My sweetie.

Tired of this darkness

I woke up yesterday from 8 hours of sleep and was tired.

“Well,” I thought, “It’s snowing and dark and Monday, it’s to be expected.”

My energy picked up once I was home from work and all was well.

I woke up this morning from 8 hours of sleep and am tired.

It’s still dark, no longer snowing, and no longer Monday. I have my tea (and a twang of pain in my throat). And I remember, “Yes, this is the darkness of Winter that makes me want to call out of work every day of the week.”

It also makes me want to sleep ungodly amounts. If it wouldn’t make me feel lazy as sin (and probably make me wake up at 4 am), I would absolutely come home from work and sleep. I wonder how long I could sleep if my body weren’t on a schedule.

I think I need to do some more meditations. My body is in that restless state again. Freaking out. The war is going to start soon. I don’t know if I’m ready.

-insert good idea here-

It’s really, really cold. And snowing. My hip hurts and even though I got plenty of sleep I’m still tired.

-insert whining here-

I really wasn’t expecting snow today. It’s January though, so I suppose I should always be expecting snow now.

Hmm, I’m not exactly sure how to get from point Q to R in my story.

That’s it for now.
