Level 1 Snow Emergency

We have been under a snow emergency for the vast majority of the past two weeks.  Last week, we were under snow emergency on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday…then off for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday…and now we’re back on.  In that time, I have scarcely left the house.  I am starting to go a little crazy.  Last night, Andy and I played a game of Scrabble, and he tried to create a new word—weefy.  We spent the next thirty minutes conjugating weefy and coming up with different ways to use it—my personal favorite was, “What up, my weefy.”

Then, after that, I started just making random noises and laughing at myself.

It’s all very entertaining.

The problem we are having, aside from massive amounts of snow, is that the heat in Andy’s car just stopped working on Saturday, so until we get it fixed, it’s difficult to drive in the frigid temperatures….it’s painful, and hard to see because the windows won’t defog.  So while I’m stuck home with the snow, he’s driving my car.  Leaving me here.  With very few groceries.  And a lot of boredom.

So here’s what things look like here right now:



The top of that light sits about 10-12 inches off the ground.

And here’s what’s going on inside:

Baby shower decorations (more on that later)



Grading research papers and the coffee needed to grade research papers (I’m in love with the blur my new lens has created in the background)



Some television (yup….I totally took a picture of the television.  Awesome)


Some working out (to combat the massive Jolly Rancher/coffee consumption)


And some laundry (clearly, I haven’t exactly started that one yet)

Try being pregnant in that situation :) I learned I would HATE to have to go on bed rest.
Went to school today for the first time in 11 days. Brian and I played scrabble the other day too (when the electricity went out). He's very competitive with that game, but I totally beat him.

By the way, you do realize that coffee consumption isn't bad... it's the sugar you put in that's bad.
