I still have something to live for

It's the end of an era in my life.

Nearly two years after I embarked on reading the Game of Thrones series, I've finished all five books. Please note that yes, I am an extraordinarily slow reader, but I was also forced to take breaks in between books to read things that didn't involve gruesome deaths and torture scenes.

I actually finished yesterday morning, but it took me some time to come to terms with it. I was also really busy texting fellow geeks and nerds about possible predictions and theories. It's actually really, really hard to text about GoT. The autocorrect is such a bitch about it.

I do realize I'm alienating any readers who aren't fans right now, but let's face it, if you haven't read the books or at least watched the series, you need to reevaluate your life choices.

In other Game of Thrones news, I watched the first episode of season 3 on the treadmill today. Remember when I used to hate the treadmill? Yeah, me neither.

Luckily, the fourth season of the show is coming up, so I do still have something to live for.

I realize my GoT countdown is a day late, because I'll be out of town that weekend
and can't watch till Monday.
It seems a little odd that I'm going on a beach trip in 18 days and yet school was closed today for a snow day. Also, the overnight low tonight is 2. TWO. I realize that's nothing compared to a lot of colder, more northern places, but I reserve the right to complain, as I grew up in one of those places and PURPOSELY moved south of the Mason-Dixon line to avoid horrendous winters like this.

In case you ever wondered about my blog title, and whether or not it's an exaggeration, let me share this little story. I texted Eric last night to see if he could get me more Cadbury mini eggs (and included this pictures to avoid any communication mishaps).

He got home from bartending late and hadn't seen my text, so I said it was fine and we could pick up some tomorrow. Then I woke up in the middle of the night to find a pack on my pillow. He went BACK out in the freezing rain because he's learned the hard way that when I want chocolate, I don't accept failure.

In addition to chocolate, I also love cheese. Eric and I have to have separate cheese because I'm a snob and refuse to eat pre-sliced or shredded. I found this on one of my favorite places, Buzzfeed, and knew it was for me.

I got started on it tonight with one pot enchilada pasta.

Not the prettiest, but the important thing is it's smothered in cheese.

Today was our 8th snow day of the year, and I think I'd have to rate it as my favorite. Lots of cheese, I read a book with only one main character and no blood or death, and a glorious Facetime date.

He's always so thrilled to see us.

What are you currently living for this month? This is my first time using the countdown app, and it's bringing me unexpected joy.


  1. I love that he went back out into the freezing rain to get your chocolate. That's a good man.

    1. Or, you're a terrifying wife. You could read that either way.

  2. Dude. White chocolate cadbury mini eggs! you were the first person I thought of.

  3. I first read Game of Thrones 7 years ago and have read the books through when Dance of Dragons came out, contemplating starting them over again since I found the books in my basement this weekend, I am a little obsessed with them I think, I wish he would just write the next book already!

  4. Wouldn't you be pissy if someone tried to have a phone date with you during your private bathroom time?

    I'm sitting here looking at your countdown and wondering why your trip to CT isn't on there...

  5. Aww, that's super sweet of Eric to head back out for you! He's a keeper :)

    Right now: I'm living for our bed! My parents got me this amazing down feather bed for my birthday gift and it has turned my bed into a piece of heaven. So glorious.

  6. I love that he went back out for chocolate for you. He's a good husband!

    And cheese makes everything better. The buzzfeed article was meant for me.

    I'm currently counting down the days until spring. Or at least until there is no snow in the forecast :)
