After raining all day Sunday, this was our radar Monday morning as I was about to leave for work (we are right on the pink line).
On the way to work it started snowing really hard and the wind was ridiculous. Luckily I live 3 blocks from school and Campbell’s sitter is maybe 1/2 mile from the other side of the school. I do have to go down a short stretch of country road to get there, and this is how it looked after just a few minutes of snowing:
We ended up getting out of school two hours early. It never snowed more than an inch or so, but the wind was crazy strong and our district is very rural. Those country roads get scary fast, especially when it rains before it snows. I had spent four solid hours grading on Sunday so I actually didn’t have much to do in the afternoon. The kids played outside a bit and I made myself a hot fudge brownie peppermint ice cream sundae.
That was around 1:30, and around 6:30 when I was serving the family dinner, I still wasn’t hungry. So, I postponed dinner to go run on the treadmill. It was a horrible run. About a mile in I sugar crashed, HARD. I stumbled through the last half mile.
My original goal was to run easy for a whole Gilmore Girls episode (I’m on season 6 now). I don’t like letting up on my goals, so I walked the last 10-12 minutes of it. I haven’t logged this run yet. Do I count the walking or not? I mean, that extra half mile is going to be HUGE in my training right?
Then, I came upstairs and ate dinner. Refreshed, I ordered part of Campbell’s Christmas present. She’s getting a new bed and bedding.
Lands End had 30% off plus double cash back (6%) at Ebates yesterday, so I ordered the pillows, pillow protectors, mattress pad, and comforter last night. The sheet set is from Pottery Barn Kids. I’m holding out to see if they have a Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale before ordering those and the bed.
It sure is expensive buying a whole new bed and bedding…by the time you add up the cost of the mattress, pillows, sheets, bed, etc., this will be a VERY nice Christmas gift! But, it’s something she needs. She still has a toddler bed and she’ll be five next year! She’s going to love her bed.
Did anyone else have snow yesterday? Who’s started Christmas shopping?
