I AM SO OVER WINTER!!!!!!
It was so stinkin' cold this weekend. Miserable cold. With snow.
Stop Mother Nature. Just stop.
Especially when our heat is still not working right.
Always something in life. Always.
Now, don't let it confuse you in thinking I didn't enjoy my weekend though.
Friday kicked off with me sitting in traffic.
There is a trend that traffic backs up on Friday. I guess everyone is on the race to get home... but ugh. Me & traffic just don't get along. It makes me sick. Literally, sick. The stop & go. I honestly think sometimes I'm just going to pull over & turn on Netflix on my phone & stay still until it clears up.
But I finally made it through & stopped to pick up some dinner for Ricky & I. While I waited, I ended up running over & picking up some treats for the dogs at a pet store. They need Valentine's too!
I spent the rest of Friday looking for a new knit/crochet project to work on & watching "Day After Tomorrow".
Now, I've seen it before - but when you're sitting in a cold house & the temperatures are in single digits & you know its going to be cold for awhile, this is NOT the movie to watch. It was freaking me out thinking about our environment & the changes in the weather that keep happening. This sort of stuff just always bother me.
I was always the little girl that watched the weather for fun & knew the forecast for the day & the upcoming week. Highs & lows. I would have made a great meteorologist. My body has taken over the job. I can always tell you what the weather is with the aches & pains of bones & joints. Funny how that works.
Saturday, I just knew I didn't want to leave the house. The temps never even got out of the 20's.
Ricky ended up running out to the store to pick up some lunch while I just stay snuggled up & working on my Bible Journal for the day.
I just wanted to do a good page for Valentine's Day & with all the scripture on LOVE - so much to choose from.
The guy working on our furnace came back & ends up its a bigger problem then we thought so he has to come back during the week. We do have heat - but its electric heat right now running some sort of emergency heat - I'm not sure how it all works - but what I do know? I've been told to watch out for our electric bill. Apparently, the way its running, its drawing more energy. You all may hear me scream when I get the bill for this higher heat, for a week, when its been like 15 degrees.
Didn't I already say its always something? .... yeah....
I wasn't about to venture outside in this cold for my run so I stuck to the treadmill. Making a Murder still my entertainment. Everyone is all the talk about it & I do find it interesting, but I have to say, I get so bored in parts of it. Maybe its the treadmill talking.
I'm glad I got in the 5 miles & burned a butt load of calories because this.....
My dad called & said he was driving something over. He made me my favorite thing in the world for Valentine's Day - a Hershey pie... with my other favorite thing - Cadbury Eggs tucked in it.
It was so funny when I walked in the kitchen with it - Ricky was like, "Is that his coconut cream pie?" Ricky is OBSESSED with my dad's coconut pies. I said, "Um no... this is MY Valentine's Pie"... to which Ricky humph'ed & moaned that he wanted a coconut pie... all the while sitting there eating the Hershey pie. Ricky ended up eating a good 1/4 of the pie while complaining it wasn't coconut.
Let's just chalk it up that Ricky will eat anything that is full of sugar. Coconut or not.
Sunday, I woke up with the best surprise.
Ricky walked in the bedroom with roses, a huge balloon & breakfast in bed.
I think I've gotten breakfast in bed maybe 5 times my whole life. It was such a sweet & thoughtful surprise.
We got ready to go to church but we had snow coming in so we were going to take Ricky's truck... only for him to start it & I saw something just POUUURRRRR out of the bottom. That didn't look good. It was like this orange color thick stuff. Yeah. Not good.
Ricky was so upset that he said we just needed to go in & give him a minute. So we ended up missing church.
We ended up just waiting a little bit & going to Sam's club, Target & of course picking up some Starbucks & Chuy's to take home to lunch. Just an easy day.

We really wanted to go to the movies but nothing great was showing. Ricky & I love our super hero movies & everyone is talking about Deadpool... but um.... I dont think we'll catch that one. I love me some Ryan Reynolds. Ricky loves Deadpool. But the previews? WOW... just WOW... a little too much for us. Raunchy just seems to be the theme. I may be wrong. I just know that the guys at Ricky's work saw the movie & already told him he wouldn't like a lot of it. So we'll just have to wait to the next Super hero movie to come out I guess.
We got home just in time before the snow really started coming down.
& I was just excited that The Walking Dead is back.... Now that's a Valentine's show to watch, right?
No spoilers.... but DANNNNGGGG!!! Anyone else watch it!!!!
|My reaction pretty much the whole hour
....one where I felt a lot of love.
Now to tackle Monday... which doesn't really like to show a lot of love to anyone.
How was your weekend?
Do anything nice for Valentine's day?
Did you watch The Walking Dead?
