If you've been watching the news then you might have heard that the Southeast was hit with a big snowstorm this week. I'm on day two of being snowed in, and while this winter wonderland is beautiful, I'm starting to go a bit stir crazy.
The last time I was stuck inside with this much snow was during my college days when I was living in the sorority house. I was surrounded by all of my best friends, fraternity boys, and kegs of beer, so being snowed in didn't seem so bad. This time around it's a whole different story. I've been working from home and reading Nicholas Sparks to pass the time.
Plus, my best friend and I are miles apart, and as much as we'd like to lay on the couch and drink wine together, there's no way that's going to happen with the condition our roads are in.
I'm sure you're getting tired of seeing my pink-sweater-wearing-dog, but I don't have kids to torture by making them pose for pictures in the snow, and I haven't gotten out of my pajamas in two days, so pictures of Nina will have to do.
As much as I like to complain about being stuck inside, I really need to see it as blessing. A few days to relax before the race season starts and I'm on the road again is probably exactly what I need, and I kind of think it's God's way of telling my busy-body-self to just stop and breathe.
So friends, I'm off to enjoy this winter wonderland! I hope you're staying warm wherever you may be.
