My Snow Days by the Numbers!

Thank you to everyone who commented on my Runfessions post on Friday. I got a KICK out of all the crazy stories you guys wrote about in the comments! If you don't normally read the comments, that is a post you definitely want to go back and read the comments for because they will give you some belly laughs!

Anyway, last week we were snowed in Friday-Tuesday. It was fun! Here are some fun stats from my snow days!

Inches of snow- 30+ !!!

Days off school- 2

Puzzles completed- 5

Books read- 3.5. Loving Mary Higgins Clark right now.

Survivor episodes watched- 8 (we are on Season 25- Philippines)

Miles run- 8... which is actually 20 in treadmill miles. ;)

Pounds lifted- 20,620 (not including snow shoveling)

Piano lessons taught- 1

Rooms cleaned- 0

Bowls of ice cream eaten- 2

I hope you're having a great weekend!


  1. How are you coping w/ the snow days? Are you pretty much all cleared out now? We got a dusting of snow last night so I went out for a "final" (for awhile) outdoor run. It was so peaceful and I savored every minute. Later today/tomorrow is when we get dumped on and then I will have a week of the indoor track. I know I will really appreciate seeing dry streets again next week (hopefully).

    1. Yah we are all clear. I even ran 10 miles yesterday and wasn't afraid of slipping at all! There is just no street parking in our hood yet because there was just nowhere to put all the snow. It's been warm (30ish) these past couple days so it is melting. It's going to be in the 40a and 50s this week (WTF!?) so there should be more melting going on!

      Sorry you are getting dumped on again! :( Remember all the GOOD parts about living in CO! :) I saw on FB this morning that we MIGHT be getting another storm next weekend. I am going to be sad if we do because I am doing my very first paint night and I don't want to miss it!

    2. That is awesome news! Run some outdoor miles for me, OK? Yes, Colorado is fabulous. I could leave for Jan,Feb and be totally OK, though. Arizona wouldn't be bad, right?!?

      I hope our storm doesn't come over to you. Fingers and toes crossed :)

  2. Isn't Runfessions fun? We runners tend to be all business. Except for me, that is...

    Are you glad to get back to real life now?

    1. In a way I am glad to be back to real life, but as soon as I am in real life, I wish I was home with Paul and the kitties. :) Call me lazy, call me unmotivated, but I am seriously content putzing around the house all day. :)

  3. I miss snow days!

    I used to LOVE Mary Higgins Clark. I'm looking for some books to read...I may have to pick her up again.

    1. She definitely follows the same outline in practically every book BUT I find her books so soothing. :) There are a couple I loved and read so many times that I just can't bare to read them anymore. They were Loves Music Loves to Dance and All Around the Town.

  4. Do you have a favorite or memorable Survivor character that you really love? Or hate?

    1. Why yes. In fact, I am very opinionated about Survivor. :) Haha! Okay let me think of characters most people like (so I hear) that I do NOT like.
