Today’s topic is a Friday Free-For-All. With the impending doom that is about to strike at some point between the hours of 4 and 7pm, I figured the best possible topic would be “What I’m going to do this weekend whilst trapped inside my house”. For those of you who don’t live near me and have been paying attention to the national weather forecast this week, I’m located in that hot (cold?) zone of potentially 2 feet of snow from this evening until tomorrow night.
5 Weekend Plans: Snowed In Edition.
I might actually try to run.
I’ve been really motivated this week so Saturday could be my rest day if I wanted, but part of me is itching to go for a short run in the middle of the madness just to say I did it.
They are anticipating white out conditions and have warned that I could become disoriented and lost right outside my house. However the idea of getting lost in my own parking lot seems a little preposterous and I doubt they will have to send a search party out for me if I do a few laps.
I bought Betty a new sled!
Actually I bought Betty her FIRST sled. She’s almost 4 and has never been properly sledding before. I know. I’m a terrible parent.
Our first sledding excursion may have to wait until Sunday – you know…because I’m not trying to get us lost right outside our house – but I suspect she will love it and never want to come back inside.
Hopefully I won’t have a similar experience to this guy, but I do know that there is a whole lot of shoveling in my future.
Seriously I hope he was okay after that.
I will have two cars to dig out and no snowblower. The upside to this is that it’s excellent exercise. And you better believe I will be putting chairs out because if anyone tries to take the spots that I spend hours clearing I will have lives to ruin.
I will play so much pretend that I may forget who I am by Monday.
I will be a Care Bear. A My Little Pony. Multiple princesses. An ice cream vendor. Possibly characters from The Chipmunks movie. It will be fun, exciting, and more exhausting than a typical day at my job. We are getting very few and far between with naps and this weekend I will pray for them because I’m going to need one too.
And let’s not beat around the bush…
That’s even more hilarious and accurate as it’s quite possible that I will be drinking a martini dressed as Cinderella at some point. Blizzard + full moon + Betty + cabin fever = potential recipe for disaster. God I hope we don’t lose power. Thank goodness I went wine shopping last night.
I was NOT the only person at the liquor store checking out with multiple bottles either. They must be making a killing right now.
Are you going to be affected by the winter blast this weekend? How much snow are you supposed to get? How do you deal with long days trapped indoors?
Happy weekend, everyone! Stay safe out there if Jonas is coming your way!
