The Blizzard of 2015. Noise.
So far all I hear are snow blowers. The men of the compound love their snow blowers and have 3 going at this very moment. The compound is not that big! They started about 7:30 am which is probably not making fans of our neighbors but I bet their attitude changes when they point their snow blowers their way. Actually our neighborhood is pretty groovy. We all get along and some of them have been here since the compound was established and even before. There is only one neighbor that gets a little funny about “His” parking space. Don’t get me started. You bought a house without a driveway! What did you think was going to happen?. I am a firm believer that if you shovel it is yours but not when there is only a dusting left. Get Over It!
So, the first noise in my head was dueling snow blowers.Then I instantly started thinking of Blizzard eating. Why do I always want to eat when I am stuck in the house? Why? The struggle is real. So I am using all my WW super powers and have planned the whole day of eating in my head. I even tracked it on my app. Hopefully that will keep me in line. I am trying to forget that I have a secret stash of Cadbury Twirl Chocolate that my good daughter Tessa brought to me from England. Maybe I should move it.
I was thinking that maybe this would not be the epic storm the crazy reporters on TV were making it out to be and then I saw this. Has this truly ever happened before in the history of man kind? I mean I kind of expect it from Honey Dew but DD? This is bad.
I am wearing the same clothes as yesterday. Really, I should have just slept in them.
I wonder how Corinne is doing with her Toni’s cookies. She braved Market Basket after school yesterday just to get them. Reason # 487 we are friends. Priorities.
Toni, that should be your true mark of success. Crazy woman braving the madness of Market Basket before a blizzard to make sure she had your champagne cookies to get her though the storm. That is dedication. That is success.
My sister text me from Palm Springs last night to “Check” on us. Thank you for reporting it was a little cool and rainy in the desert. I feel badly for you.
15 more sleeps until I am in Disney World with said sister.
Even though we are not getting mail today some of the new spring catalogs have started to arrive. This is going to be a fun snow day activity.
I love my new clock. I got rid of the digital apple iPhone base thing that was by my bed side and bought this. I love it. It even makes a soothing Tick Tock sound. Heaven
I wanted The Thinker to come home and bunker in with us for the duration. He decided to stay at his apartment. It feels weird for him to not be here. He is all alone and that worries me. Clearly he prefers it but I wish he were here. Maybe he is just avoiding the Snow Blower Brigade. Can you blame him? Mario if you are reading this please check in with your Mother. xo
Hmmmmm, it’s quiet, They must have ave moved onto The Annex. That is across the street and down 2 houses where Micheal lives. It’s not quite The Compound but still a part of The Compound, The Annex.
I miss Dad calling to get the storm updates. He loved hearing about the amount of snow that got dumped on us. It did not matter if I said 8 inches or 2 feet he always said the same thing “Oh, Man!” and then chuckled. I was looking forward to sending him storm photos since he had finally gotten an iPhone but I never got the chance. I miss my Dad.
It always ends up with me missing my Dad.
I watched two fantastic movies while being house bound. Pride and The Chef. I highly recommend both and am proud of myself for breaking away from the Lifetime and Hallmark Channels. It was a big move for me.
Well, I am venturing out today. I am a little worried about what I am going to encounter out there but am more worried about the person I will become if I do not get out of this house! I am thinking it will be safe and happy at the mall. Wish me luck!
