Snow Day!

So Friday afternoon it started snowing, and it just kept on snowing until Saturday afternoon. I love it when I can stay home and just watch it snow without having to worry about getting out and going anywhere. They closed the center where we work last night so we were off and we just got to hang out and stay cozy. It was really nice. Of course we have to drive to work tonight...I'm hoping that during the afternoon it melts off some. Cross your fingers. Here's some pics from this morning. I really wanted to get some before the snow was all walked around in but for some reason I didn't think about it until after I had driven through the yard. Oh well, perhaps the deepness of the footprints/tire marks will show you how deep the snow is.

This is the view from the front porch.

These are the giant icicles growing off our house. I think they are very very cool.

This is Maybe. She thinks snow is for eating. She thinks everything is for eating.

And here is Maybe looking all tragic after I made her sit down in the snow. Please don't call PETA, she's fine I promise.


This is what it looks like outside:

The police, the news, and the National Weather Service are telling people not to drive unless there is an extreme emergency. My father, the fireman, has gone out on 12 wrecks in the last 6 hours. Two involving fatalities. There is an inch of ice on the on my porch. At least that much on the road. They tell us we are expected to be at work (30 miles away), because our corporate office is in South Dakota, and our weather can't possibly be as bad as theirs. That is bullshit.
We are not driving over a treacherous road in the middle of the night so that we can assist college students in their prank phone calls all night long.

We are staying home.

Fat Like Me

Well we're back from our trip. It was generally a good time, the flights were uneventful as usual and there were no major fights the entire trip. We did some fun shopping with our Christmas money and got to eat at some good places and see the George Bush Library, which if you haven't been to, is a really fun place to go.

The only downside to the trip is that the entire time my mom harassed me about my weight. Hello, fat people know we're fat. It's not a secret that you have to whisper to us in the car on the way to the pizza place. It's not something that we have to be reminded of every hour or so by concerned citizens. Clearly my mom doesn't understand this. At one point while I was in the bathroom she even said to Justin "I'm really sorry Susan has gained so much weight since the wedding." (I've gained maybe 8 or 10 pounds geez.) He immediately told her that it was inappropriate behavior for her to say things like that to him {Justins Note: I don't actually know if she heard me or not. I was scared} , so instead she got me alone every chance she could and told me how much I need to watch what I eat, and that 2 mini bagles (240 calories) is way to much for anyone to eat for breakfast. Needless to say my struggling self esteem has taken a nose dive. Again.

Yeah, I'm fully aware that I need to lose weight. I actually have been walking what I think amounts to 1 and a half miles at work every night on my lunch hour and break. I've been eating healthier. I've lost 4 pounds in about a month. Yes I know that's not record breaking, but at least it's something. At least I'm trying. I shouldn't have had to cry every day of my vacation. Justin's mom is giving us a treadmill. Apparently they're closing ranks. I wish I had the willpower to get an eating disorder.

Out of the Office

We are leaving for our trip in 10 hours. 6 of those will be spent at work and one of them driving to work so they don't count. 3 hours til our vacation!!!

Be back Monday.
