Bad Weather Can Be A Good Thing

We are in the midst of a blizzard. Well, I'm not 100% sure what constitutes a true blizzard, but within the past few hours we've had rain, sleet, hail, snow, and winds gusting over 40 mph. The forecast for the rest of the weekend is only going to get worse - approximately a 1/2 inch of ice which then will be covered by about 7 inches of snow.

There are two ways to look at this: 1) "Oh shit" and 2) "This is fantastic, we don't need to leave the house today, tonight, or the rest of the weekend." I am choosing #2. My stepson's basketball game was cancelled, which in all honesty, made my day. That sounds awful, but a 7 PM game during a "blizzard" just didn't sound appealing to me. I really wanted to tackle the laundry that is piling up, organize some crap in the spare bedroom, and find a place for all of my cookbooks and cooking magazines. I know that my husband was upset when the game was cancelled, but I told him that we could spend the evening having dinner, watching a movie, playing board games/video games, etc. We have my stepson this week, and I know he would just love this kind of night. Besides, I just baked some homemade "Toffee Blond Brownies" from Cooking Light. Yum yum.

I definitely am one of those people who loves a day like this - the weather is bad and I'm forced to stay inside. For some reason I'm so much more productive on days like this.

Just talked to my mom who says the weather is just awful- I tend to think "beautiful"! I am so jealous! Enjoy your time in the house.
