There's not much that can beat the pleasure of turning the alarm off and not going to work on a snow day. Yesterday, though, something better happened.
An unexpected snow day. Teachers in the south moonlight as meteorologists, because it's really important to know if there's the slightest hint of a shorter workday, or in a perfect scenario, no workday. As a result, so far every snowday this winter has been glorious, yes, but anticipated. Until this week.
We've had a ton of snow this winter. There's not many times where my life choices of being a poor teacher and a lowly renter are validated. Snow days are really all I have. While others have to worry about shoveling the driveway they own to get to the job that gives them periodic pay raises, I have no worries. I'm free to stay in bed until 5pm, which is exactly what I did.
I spent the whole, entire day with my best friend.
|My body pillow. Close second: my electric blanket.|
I did get up briefly for Raisin Bran and Kelly and Michael, but other than that, bed. Reading, dozing, repeating. I began to rewatch Orange is the New Black, because if there's one thing I hate, it's broadening my horizons with new experiences when I already know what I like.
I even ate my second bowl of Raisin Bran (for lunch, because cooking is hard. So is putting together a sandwich) in bed. I did grad work in bed. Basically this whole post is that fortune cookie joke.
While I did have to return to work today, it wasn't so bad, because I have future laziness to look forward to. My weekend is wide open, with no plans, other than meeting Lily for a run. So I intend to replicate yesterday's wonderful experience. I might get slightly more motivated though and return to my crocheting. I haven't made much (any) progress so far.
That's about it in my life so far. Except that my random act of kindness pal at work left me three Lindor Truffles in my mailbox. That made today only slightly less amazing than yesterday. I probably spelled that wrong but they are long gone and so are the wrappers.
What other TV shows are good for binge watching? It basically needs to hook me within 5 seconds, and not be something that Eric would like, because then we could watch together (he's working/doing grad work this weekend).
