These happy photos were taken on our first, happy day of snow. We were joyful and merry. Today is Sunday night, and we have been stuck since Thursday early evening. WHAT? Yes. TOMORROW IS OUR FOURTH DAY... TOTALLY TRAPPED. Even though we live in Texas, somehow we ended ip in a situation where there is enough ice to keep us stuck. Ben's had TWO days off work (Friday, and we just got word he'll be home tomorrow!) and I'm hopeful that the ice will melt enough tomorrow that we can get out to see the Disney movie, Frozen. Ironic, yes. :)
What have we been doing to stay occupied? Friday was all happy and we took photos, ate chili, went to Ben's parents house and watched HGTV.. not bad. Totally great actually. But Saturday morning.. waking up with the prospect of being in your house for three more days really put a damper on my attitude. I genuinely can't even tell you about that day... soooo long. Oh yeah! I moved all of our bedroom furniture to clean behind it. JOYOUS, I know! Today I just decided to embrace it... I cleaned a bunch, and then rewarded myself with watching The Holiday and a long winter's nap. First thing, we went to the donut shop a few blocks over and literally people were sliding everywhere in their cars and on their feet. It's been totally crazy and Ben's dad says it's the worst he's ever seen it.
Does anyone have any suggestions of activities that can keep us going? Even as I type.. I feel like my mind is mush and that I have no good words to say. Dramatic? Yes.
