I woke up to "Let It Snow" on my phone, so I knew that we were off today. Turned off my alarm, snuggled up with my honey, and went back to sleep.
I love snow days.
I started my own little tradition this year... I started making Belgian waffles for breakfast on snow days. They are ridiculously huge, so it's definitely a treat. But I like my new tradition. And I make enough batter so that Brad can have one when he comes back from skiing.
I'm back on the water train today. My glass has been emptied and refilled a bunch of times already today. Every time it gets empty, I go right back and fill it up again. I already feel better - I know that water is super important, but it still amazes me that it can make me feel so much better.
My to-do list wasn't very long today... only three things I had to do. Did two of them, and the third one is super easy.
- I bought a sweater dress yesterday at Talbots for only $36. Yahoo! And it's the first sweater dress I've found that doesn't cling to every lump and bump. I tried it on and immediately knew that it was perfect. I was working really hard not to buy any clothes until next weekend, but it was a super sale and I have been looking for a sweater dress for months.
- Brad has off of work tonight, so we're having a really nice dinner. Veal, butternut squash risotto, beets with blue cheese, and some wine. I think I will make some kind of dessert... We have banana bread, but since I have the day off, what the heck.
Be safe today if you are out on the ice...

sixty-four ounces to drink,
You drink one cup,
fill it back up,
fifty-six ounces of water to drink.
Fifty-six ounces of water to drink...
You get the idea. I've been having trouble getting in all my water... just a few weeks ago, it was easy for me to drink enough. I was even getting close to 100 ounces! That's a lot of water. And I'm not sure if it's because of my lack of water that I'm feeling more run down than usual... I'm sure it's at least a part of it.
But tonight I am determined to get in my water. And it's coming in the form of hot decaf tea. And why not?
So I moved the water pot off the ledge and onto the counter where it's easily accessible. I have a giant mug from my mom - the perfect size for a big cup of tea.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some winter weather tonight... I'd love to have a delay tomorrow.

Well the good news is that my car repair was easy and inexpensive.
Today I am sore sore sore. Did a really intense lower body workout yesterday at the gym and for some reason, my arms are feeling it too. Hm... It might just be a cardio day today.
I have been totally slacking on the water... some days it's so easy for me to drink it all, and some days it's hard for me to even get half of it in. I think I need to go back to having a full glass with me at all times.
Grocery shopping today... there is NOTHING in the house to eat.
- get tomorrow's school things ready
- make a shopping list for tomorrow afternoon (I will be close to a good shopping area tomorrow - doctor's appointment - so I want to pick up some stuff I've been patiently waiting to get)
Have a great day!

I love to make lists. I frequently include lists of goals in my blogs because I like how simply they lay out my plans for the day. I write lots of lists, too. But toward the end of 2010, I noticed that I was writing lots of lists but not crossing anything off of them. Whatever the reason, my lists' tasks were not getting done and I was just wasting paper.
But in 2011, I am doing the things on my lists. I had a lot to do today - and it all got done. Wahoo! I just sucked it up and did the stuff on my list. And it feels great. All those little things piling up... they are done. And now I can relax. I'm really getting good at relaxing... it's hard for me to not be doing anything. So any time I can spend just sitting on the couch doing nothing is good.
I'm totally craving carbs... I don't feel like going out to get anything, so I may just make a pot of decaf and have a little yogurt. I'd love some chips right about now, though...

I didn't get to reply individually yet, but I just want to say THANK YOU for the support on yesterday's mopey car blog. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person whose car has problems... thank you for taking me out of that bubble!
Brad got a big tray of cupcakes for his birthday from one of the girls at his work. Peanut butter icing, chocolate icing, and coconut icing. YUM. Last night, all I wanted was chocolate. I know i know, I probably should have gone out for a walk or done a yoga workout at home, but really, chocolate was calling to me. So two cupcakes later, I actually felt a little better. And I know I won't eat any more, because today they look like UGH and I feel bad just looking at them. Back to fruit and water today. But thank you, cupcakes, for the delicious comfort.
Called in for my body pump class this morning. It starts next Saturday, and I'm super excited!
Toast is done...
Keep your fingers crossed for an inexpensive and easy car repair!
