The high tomorrow is supposed to be one below zero. The HIGH.
Today we got about six inches of snow, and I was forced to cancel the volunteer board meeting I had scheduled for tonight. Sadly, this gives me no remaining excuse to skip my normal Monday evening workout, but it does give me the unpleasant task of having to find an ALTERNATE meeting date that works with eight different people's schedules. GAH! I'm going crazy. This all reminds me of an old New Yorker cartoon that Christopher and I had taped above our phone for a very long time back in graduate school: a businessman standing at his desk contemplating his calendar, with the phone to his ear, saying, "How about never? Is never good for you?" We found this cartoon absolutely hilarious, and honestly, I still do. It's exactly how I feel about most scheduling commitments. I wish I still had that cartoon.
Of course part of why I'm going crazy may be that Julia has yet another terrible cold and was home from preschool again today (for the fourth day so far this year, and after only one week back at school and healthy after her holiday vacation/cold virus). Also, Christopher ended up working an hour late tonight. And I cleaned up two potty accidents this afternoon. Two! Did I mention that I caught this cold, also? Ah, fun times, people. Sure, it's an amazing blue-and-white winter wonderland outside, but I'm stranded indoors behind a giant snowdrift cleaning pee off the floor.
Oh, and for those of you interested in the recipes for the yummy things I cooked and baked over the weekend, stay tuned. I'll get that info posted for you soon. Right now I'm too busy eating shortbread and, um....cleaning pee off the floor (not at the same time).
