If that was a blizzard here yesterday, then let me just say that I survived many such blizzards--probably at least once a year--growing up in Oregon City. (Note: for those of you who are not familiar with the Portland, Oregon area and fail to grasp just how pathetic that reference is supposed to be, just know that it hardly ever snows and sticks in the Portland area. But when it does, everybody goes crazy.) Yes, our blizzard that was supposed to commence at 4pm yesterday didn't start until hours later and consisted of snow that came down in nice slow and fluffy flakes...and didn't even stick to the roads. It was pretty pathetic.
Anyway, the point was, it got Bryan out of work. Yay! Not that he has a bad job or anything. He has a great job--quite possibly one of the top five student jobs on campus--but I still like to have him home every chance I get. :)
And so, since we're all home today and we don't have church, it feels like Saturday. Yay! It also feels like Saturday because I really want us to do all of our chores today. We're spending Thanksgiving with relatives and friends and we've already decided that we're going to decorate for Christmas on the day after Thanksgiving, so it would be really nice if we could clean the apartment today so it would all be nice and clean and ready to decorate on Friday. Ya know what I'm sayin'?
Anyway, I'm off to start cleaning. And to keep Olivia from trying to "type" on the laptop with me and pull on the internet cords. Wish me luck.
