Kicking the Winter Blues

On the first snow day here's what you should do....
  • Sleep-in and don't get dressed. Stay in your pajamas all day.
  • Make pecan and chocolate chip pancakes.
  • Watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians on netflix until you are completely brainwashed and think that the Kardashian sisters are actually good people.
  • Since you are brainwashed, start watching Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami. Tell Micah how the Kardashian sisters are actually pretty smart business people. Watch Micah roll his eyes at you.
  • Don't bother going outside, it's too cold and you might slip and fall on the ice.
  • Find as many people as you can to play Words With Friends on the iPhone. Try to win all games.

On day 2 of snow day here's what you should do to combat cabin fever:

  • Sleep in, maybe the day will go by faster.
  • Open the blinds to let some light in, so you don't fall into a depression.
  • Take a shower and put on some make-up. The bags under my eyes was scaring my puppy.
  • Check the The Weather Channel app every half hour, to determine the warmest hour that a 6 mile run could happen.  No hour is warm enough, a steady 19 degrees today!
  • Work-out on the Wii Fit since you can't go running in 19 degree weather, and you'll fall on the icy sidewalks.
  • Keep your day scheduled with 3 meals, instead of snacking all day long. You aren't hungry, just bored. Hide your various stashes of chocolate.
  • Clean out closets.
  • Clean your colon by drinking 3 cups of coffee.
  • Check your e-mail, Twitter, and Facebook at least every 15 minutes.
  • Consider scrapbooking, but its too big of a mess to get out since you'll be returning to work tomorrow.
  • Contemplate how happy you aren't at work with rolling black-outs and crying 3 and 4-year-olds.
  • Put on real shoes for the first time in 2 days, and take pictures of the ice. Watch Barley get frisky in the snow. 


  1. I'm jealous! Unfortunately for me, even when the office closes, I am expected to at least pretend to work from home. Tragic!

  2. LOL. I need some more snow days. We get pounded with snow, and they don't close anything! Bummer. :)
