Blizzard, you can bite me!
Last night my friend Roxanne went shopping and picked us up some provisions. The usual milk, bread, but no eggs. We have plenty of eggs. She's such a sweetie and that was above and beyond the call of duty, but then again she was already going to the store. I'm so glad I didn't have to brave the store today. I don't think I could have done it without going beserk.
This afternoon I'll make up a big pot of chili. Nothing warms you up like chili on a cold snowy night. Bubbling hot, it's a great meal that is fortifying and delicious. We're big on chili in this house.
The Girl's job thinks she's coming in tonight. They think wrong. Once it starts snowing we are snowed in until the plow comes and does our enormous hill. There is no way we can get out until we're plowed out. And he's not going to come half way through the storm. Besides, I'm not driving in the middle of a blizzard to get her to Panera where no customers will be because they are all hunkered down in their own homes. It's just stupid. She's a minor and I get to say when she can and can't work. I'm responsible for her safety and they need to understand that I have the last word, not the damn restaurant. She can find another job pretty quickly. They love her there. She's a good worker and she's pleasant to the customers. It costs a lot to find and train a new employee, so it's in their best interest to deal with her today.
If you're dealing with inclement weather today, keep warm, drink plenty of hot cocoa or hot spiked cider, and have a great time. There is something about a snow day that just slows me right down to a snail's pace. It's the knowledge that the world has stopped for a bit and that Mother Nature has taken over the power.
We'll take a walk in the snow much later tonight. I can't wait. Stumble It! JBlog Me
