On Friday the weather was expected to be really bad, so I found out at about 6:30 (when I was all ready for work) that we didn't have school. Thank goodness for my friends who called to tell me...otherwise I would have driven all that way only to find out that we didn't have school. Chris drove to work, but they closed Canisius early and sent everyone home before noon, which made me happy! All weekend the weather was horrible--we had a lot of snow, but the worst part about it was the wind. This morning we were still dealing with lots of wind and snow...and a very full driveway. We received a phone call before 5:30 that the Thruway was closed, which kind of prevents Chris from going to work, then we found out that Canisius was closed anyway, so that was good news for him. I still didn't see that my school had closed, and I figured there was NO WAY our school would be closed AGAIN, but, alas, Mary called me at about 6:30 to say that we were closed again. I've spent the day catching up on chores and getting ready for the festivities at work tomorrow and in the upcoming days.
I'm generally a very happy person with a deep appreciation for my life and everyone/everything that touches it. (I say 'generally' because even I have my moments...). I'm so in love with my husband of six years, and we enjoy everything from quiet evenings at home to biking to exploring Europe together. I'm a big tree hugger and I often find myself thinking of ways to reuse things instead of throwing them away. That makes me a bit of a pack rat, but I'm trying to get better about letting things go. I decided to start this blog because I often find myself pondering the weirdest topics, and I love to write, so I thought this would be a fun stream-of-consciousness exercise. I'm very opinionated on some topics and very passive on others. And sometimes my opinion changes based on my mood. In my journey through life, some of my beliefs have changed, mostly based on personal experience and/or deep reflection. I've had this blog set up for a while, and I've had other blogs before this, but I've only recently started really writing what I think, and I've learned a great deal about myself because of my (sometimes very blunt) honesty. Thanks for reading!
