Braving the Snow

My gameplan was to not leave the house today, besides to clean off the cars.  I was content with staying inside all day reading, commenting, and relaxing.  But of course it didn’t go that way.  But more on that in a couple minutes.

After I finished posting we went out and cleaned off our cars and dug them out, with a little help from our township, they were coming around on tractors digging people’s cars out and plowing the driveways.  Pretty nice for us, but it was still a ton of work.  It took us 2 hours to get everything cleaned off.  I tried to take some pictures but the now just isn’t as pretty as last time, I think because it was so dark and cloudy out all day.

Once we came back in I made some hot chocolate and some lunch.  I had a peanut butter and raspberry preserve on a whole wheat wrap.

I also had some grapes.

I also tried a new treat, which I absolutely loved.  I had to get it when I saw it at Whole Foods yesterday.  Just look at the name.Picture 012

Danielle Crispy Fruit Chips.  I’m pretty sure it’s a rule if you’re name is on something you have to try it.  I’m so glad I did give it a try these were delicious!

They have a bunch of different flavors, but I went for my favorite fruit.  I highly highly recommend them, they’re a little pricey at 4 dollars a bag but really good, a great treat.

All together with my hot chocolate.

After lunch I logged on my computer and tried to catch up on some blogs and do some commenting, when Andrew came in to tell me our hot water heater is leaking.  Our landlord came up and told us he had to turn the water off, so we won’t have hot water until at least sometime tomorrow if he can get someone here to replace it.  So I had to run to my parents house to take a shower so that I could go in to work tomorrow.  What is typically at 10 minute drive took us over 1/2 an hour.  The roads here are a mess!  Ice and snow everywhere still.  I’m so nervous to go into work tomorrow, Andrew has a delayed opening and is working his other job in the evening so I can’t go with him, because I’d go in 2 hours late and have to leave 2 hours early.  I’m going to have to suck it up and get there somehow.  I already have anxiety thinking about my commute tomorrow morning.

Before we went to my parents though I through together a super quick dinner.   I’ve seen this brand before on other people’s blogs and decided to give it a try.

I followed the directions to cook, then added steamed broccoli and mini sweet peppers.  I ate a serving which is one third of the box.  It was really very good, and I’ll definitely be branching out and trying other things the brand has to offer, and buying this one again.

Well I’m going to try to relax for a little while before I get into bed.  I’m letting myself get to worked up about work tomorrow, I loaned someone else I work with my laptop on Friday so I don’t even have the option of working from home.  Okay I’m sorry, I’m being a major Debbie Downer right now, I’m sure some/most of you had to get to work today in all this snow, sorry to be complaining.  Good night everyone!  I promise to be in a better mood tomorrow!

    Don’t be sorry! That sounds pretty stressful, especially the hot water situation. It looks beautiful though. Of course I’m sitting around in 75 degree weather. Don’t hate me please!
