We're on snow day #2 over here! This is considered a total blizzard in Baltimore. They didn't even have The Price is Right on, so they could report about the "storm".
I've said this before (although it doesn't really count because that was when my blog had like 2 readers, which is only about 25% of the current readership) but I really think a snow day is the best personality test in the world. I realize most professions don't get them, but I'm sure we've all been blessed with a period of unexpected free time at some point. (If you are jealous of our snow days, just remember I haven't had a raise in like 5 years, probably never will again, and I have to buy things like tissues, soap and hand sanitizer for work with my own money).
If you think to yourself: "YES, I'm about to enjoy a day in my pajamas with no contact with the outside world, where my sole accomplishment will be seeing how deep of an impression my butt can make in the couch", then you're a lazy POS like me.
If you think to yourself: "FINALLY, a day to organize those closets and scrub those baseboards! I need to get my to-do list pad out post haste!" then you're some sort of alternate species that, while I admire you, I will never understand.
It's probably worth noting that Reaction #1 should take place at like 10am, when you roll over after those extra 5 hours of sleep you enjoyed once you turned your alarm off.
I can only imagine that Reaction #2 takes place after you see the snow day announcement and hop right out of bed at the normal time to get started on a fun filled day of productivity!
I think it's important to identify your snow day personality and make sure you find a partner who is the same. I may have married someone of a different race and different religious beliefs, but the important thing is that we're in sync when it comes to deciding how to spend free time.

I wouldn't have gotten out of my pjs at all yesterday, but we got a package. It was my Christmas gift from Kara! She told me I could open it early.
|Think of how much time I'll save in races! Now I'll never have to stop!|
|The socks even match the blanket!|
I also wore clothes other than pajamas for a short period yesterday to work out. I did T25 Cardio, and ran 3.5 miles. On the treadmill, obviously.
More importantly, we decided to make pizza. Since it was snowing and gross out, we only used ingredients we already had, but it ended up being like the best pizza ever. We topped it with Costco marinara sauce, cheddar cheese, Andoille sausage, mushrooms, and caramelized onions. I don't think I can ever go back to pizza with mozzarella cheese now.
I used my brand new Cutco knife to cut the onions, which was very exciting for me. It was a Hanukkah gift from my dad.

Kara is organizing a brand new race, a Valentine's Day themed trail 50k on February 15. It's only $20, and there will be oreos, and medals, and I'm sure we can all agree that there is really no better way to spend Valentines Day, right? Now that I've convinced you, sign up here.
