Snow Day #3!

On Tuesday, we had our third snow day of the year. (Yes, we have to make them up. Bye, bye spring break!) However, it was the best kind of snow day because it was the kind we totally anticipated having. In fact, We pre-gamed the snow day the night before...

Unfortunately, I could not sleep that night. I slept from 12:46-2:00 and then I was up until 5:30. (At 4:23 I got the call that school was canceled, so at least after that I could relax a little since I knew for sure I could sleep in.) I got up for good around 8:00. That's not a whole lot of sleep, but how much sleep does one need for a snow day?

At least the first things I saw when I woke up were these cute little guys!

First, coffee...

It was quite the lazy morning. Paul had an appointment at 11 but my car wouldn't start! I called AAA and they towed it to a nearby shop. We only have one car, so we always take it to a place that's about a mile away. The AAA guy thought the problem was the starter. I crossed my fingers that he was right and it wasn't something major.

Not having a car threw a wrench into my plan to go to the gym and grocery shop. Instead, I had to run 6 miles outside in the freezing rain. I call this a character building run! At least I had a good podcast about the Loch Ness Monster.

I'm doing awesome on my Spanish lessons! Look, I'm on a 50 day streak! And yes, check out the time I was practicing... I told you I can't sleep!

I was having a hard time getting warm after my run. And while I was very much hoping my car would be fixed today (I mean, how am I supposed to get to work!?), I was also dreading the cold, wet walk to the shop to pick it up. I just hoped that if it got done, it was before dark. I was also worried about what would be wrong with it...

... but of course the shop never called me. So I called around 6 and the cashiers said the mechanics had gone home for the day and that my car "wasn't done yet". I asked if it was looked at and she said no. How fucking annoying!!!!

Luckily, I have awesome coworkers so I was able to set up rides to and from work tomorrow.

That evening, Paul and I played cards.

I had a snow day salad for dinner. You put BBQ chips on your salad too, right? 'Merrica!

Before I went to bed, I got a text saying we had a two hour delay the next day! Wahoo! I could get used to a work week like this one...
Do you have AAA? Ever need your car towed?
Do your pets sleep with you?
Do you believe in the Loch Ness Monster?


  1. My mom buys me AAA every year haha! I used to lock my keys in my car ALL THE TIME back when you had to use the kind of key you insert into the door. I used AAA to help me get into my car so many times because of that! I haven't really used AAA much since I got rid of that car, except for when I got a flat tire when I was like an hour away from home.

    Cecil does sleep with us :) He does a combination of purr-snoring when he's in a deep sleep. It's cute but annoying!

    I believe the Loch Ness Monster could be real just because it looks like other animals that were real at one time! Like, I'm not sure that it *is* real and alive today, but I believe it could be you know? Like scientifically there's a small possibility right?

    1. Back when you had to use the kind of key to insert into your door? That's what I have now! Hahaha! I think I've used AAA like twice for the locking the keys in the car issue. The other times were when my battery died. This is the first major problem. More on that tomorrow...

      Sure, I think there's a possibility. I mean, it's hard to prove something DOESN'T exist. It's like proving a negative! When I was in 4th grade, my friend Ashley and I had a book about the Lock Ness Monster that we would read at recess. We were in a detective club and we thought we were going to catch the monster... at our Elem in PA...

  2. WOW, Your school sure does call early. We got a text around 5:30-ish am that there was no school and thank goodness we were told the evening before about the delay on Wednesday. It was a good work week for sure!
    Sorry about your car. I hope it was nothing major.
    I am actually fascinated by the Loch Ness Monster stories!

    1. How early does your district start school? See for us, there are high schoolers at the bus stops before 7am.
