Well it was yet another fairly successful day! I made it into the office even though my phone died in the middle of the night therefore no alarm went off. Not sure what the hell is up with my phone (oh wait yes I do it’s a Zach Morris phone from 1982) and its on its last life. Seeing that I really don’t want a new one I am trying to get the most out of this bitch. I couldn’t even charge it because I left the charger in the office!
Once I arrived I plugged it in and well had 3 missed texts and a voicemail – it’s a damn good thing no one needed anything urgent because they would have been shit out of luck! The morning went rather smoothly and then my coworker and friend Dana came into my office with a little surrrr-prize for me!
I opened up the package and in it was a new iPad cover that has snoopy and other peanut comic strips on it. I was so excited, I mean I have had the iPad for almost a year ow but have refused to buy a cover for it and low and behold she found one that is perfect and gave it to me for shits and giggles!
Two of my staffers planned a little walking group and it was pretty cold today but I stopped in to see if they were still going to go, if they weren’t I was going to go to the gym. They said they were so I made the effort to join them. The picture I posted earlier is them all bundled up and ready to go – we walked for 30 minutes out in the cold. It was nice!
My afternoon meeting was its typical hour and a half and although it was informative the weather was changing and I had a full afternoon of grocery shopping to do! My fridge was completely empty and I had a list of things that I needed to get at SAMs, the grocery store and trader joes. Why you ask did I have to go today instead of my normal Sunday? Well there is no class this week and I am hosting the dinner company so I wanted to be done and ready with Sunday just being little things.
I headed out and although it was snowing I didn’t think this was going to be a big deal…I guess I shouldn’t have thought that as I haven’t been that scared driving in a really long time. I got about 5 miles from campus and the jeep did her first slide, then it just got worse the roads were pure ice. To go 12 miles it took me over 45 minutes, I was almost out of gas and just kept praying that I could get to SAMs because turning around wasn’t going to be an option either.
The road I was on was surrounded by 4 foot ditches so if you went of the road you weren’t getting back on by yourself. Oh and I think I failed to mention that I left my gloves, scarf, and beanie in the office because it really didn’t look that bad out. Mom pretty sure I pulled muscles just from the stress driving.
I was in SAMs for a little less than an hour in the hoes that the roads would clear and because honestly I needed a lot of shit. I was pretty much out of everything. When I got out I could see that the roads hadn’t cleared and being 18 miles from the house I opted to just start my adventure back home.
It took me another 45 minutes to get home but this wasn’t as bad as the trip to the store, once I got on the highway things were a little better. I made it home and unloaded the car, then made some scrambled eggs with black beans for dinner. After I inhaled that I started doing the Fun Friday cookie! They are in the fridge cooling right now before I can cut the, which is why there isn’t a picture yet.
They are a snicker doodle granola bars – but I am making them bite sized so people can try me. I also made chocolate chip cookies so that if the granola bites flop they still get something. I am taking a half day tomorrow and will go to the gym, then finish my grocery shopping come home and start baking for the random acts of Kimmie kindness! Well that is presuming the roads aren’t Shittackular!
Ok well I need to get to bed I’m exhausted! TGIF everyone!
