Snow Days!

A little over two weeks ago we had snow in Atlanta that kept us home for 3 days. We had just come back from our trip to California and I needed to work! More vacation days made me feel lazy and well, if you don’t go to work, you don’t get paid. I was grumpy and couldn’t wait to get back into things. I didn’t even take pictures (with my SLR anyway) because I wasn’t in the mood.

This Monday night Lindsey and I were just getting back from Colorado and heard the bad weather was coming in again. Tuesday and Wednesday work was definitely canceled.  Of course, I’m feeling the need to go to work, but this time around I was/am excited.

Some things I’ve found myself doing while I’m snowed in:

1.     Cook/Bake.
I really like baking and cooking, I just feel like there’s never extra time to do it. Between Tuesday and Wednesday I made the following: smoothies, granola, chex mix, coffee cake, and brownies. Yes, I’ve probably gained 10 pounds since Monday night. 

2.     Procrastinate
Usually I’m rushing to get computer work done in between jobs or before bed. I’m realizing that I procrastinate when I know I have all day. But yesterday I tried to buckle down and got most of my tax work done.

3.     Make Crafts
I love valentines day, and I wanted to make a bunch of valentines and crafts, but wasn’t sure if I’d actually get it done. Thanks to snow days, it happened. Woohoo!

4.     Clean Dishes.
I’ve actually enjoyed doing dishes the past few days. It’s strange since I hate hate hate cleaning dishes. But hey, I’ll take it.

5.     Let my room become a wreck.
Unpacking is another one of my least favorite things to do. Add that to the normal mess and my room is looking pretty awful. I just kept thinking “that’s something I can do if the power goes out.” It hasn’t gone out yet…guess I should clean it.

6.     Play in the snow.
Linz and I went sledding on a cookie sheet and made a snowman. A pitiful snowman, but a snowman. 

7.     Watch Movies.
It’s fun to watch movies guilt free and not think about the fact that you should probably go to bed since you have to be up early.

And then today the boys came over for some snowball fun.

So there ya have it. Its been fun. What do you when you’re stuck at home?
