Weird blog post title, huh? That’s about how my day went today. I went to bed last night wishing with all of my might for a delay for the start of the school day. Our area was under a “winter weather advisory” from 1am this morning to 1pm this afternoon, calling for anywhere from a “coating to 2 inches of snow” with possible icing. Ah!, I thought, perfect conditions for a delay! Delays are the best! You can sleep in a little later, maybe have an extra cup of coffee at home, a good fraction of the day is done when you get to work, and it still counts toward the required 180 days of school! Imagine my disappointment to be awakened by the sound of my alarm clock at its normal time rather than by the Connect-Ed phone call announcing the district’s delayed start of school for the day. For this was all that was on the ground:
It was wet and slushy, but hardly treacherous.
Mid-morning at work found me with a headache. Not a debilitating, can’t-do-my-work kind of headache, but one of those annoying, nagging headaches that just makes you constantly aware of its presence – do you know the sort that I mean? I stumbled through the rest of my day and made it home no worse for wear, but with the nagger still present.
Feel-sorry-for-myself-me wanted to lie down and take a nap with a dog or two and a fluffy blanket. Get-off-my-sorry-butt me decided no. We would make cookies instead! Cookies make everything better, don’t they?
Oatmeal-raisin-chocolate chip cookies, to be exact.
Anyone remember this post? Yup, they’ve got ’em for Valentine’s Day now too. I was negligent in not pointing out that Sweetarts Ornaments Gummies were available last month!
Weird post to go with a weird title, wasn’t it? Thanks for reading the ramblings of a mad woman. I think I need some more cookies…
