Good morning everyone!
Well the big news of the day around here is the current winter weather watch. It's hard not to get too wrapped up in all of the excitement!
Just last night the hubby called and needed me to pick up lettuce from the grocery store on my way home from work (for dinner last night). Not EVEN thinking about the *S* word, I cluelessly went to the grocery store near our house and only needed to pull in to remember that snow was in the forecast.
The place was packed and people were in a panic to get food! I was very thankful not to be needing bread and milk because most likely it was already gone. This strange phenomenon never ceases to entertain me. It reminds me that deep down we're all still kids. The likelihood of having a storm bad enough here in NC that you would actually starve because you couldn't get out to the grocery store is probably near impossible. Sure, we have a few ice storms but they generally last a day or two. It's hilarious. But we all get so excited at the thought that we do these crazy things. So, of course, wrapped up in the excitement of the moment with all those around me...I made sure to get a few things in case we happen to be snowed in for weeks. The important extra items I bought were: Red wine (of course), yummy specialty cheese, two boxes of crackers, sliced deli meat, spicy hummus, pita chips and grapes. I have priorities. If I'm going to be stuck at home for a day or two I need more fun food than bread and milk. Seriously.
So I am now prepared for our "winter weather" that may or may not be coming. Trying not to get my hopes up but it always ends up happening anyway. Some of the white fluffy stuff this close to the holidays would be pretty magical. Isn't there some kind of snow dance I can do?
Only a week until Christmas - EEK! Almost done but still have a few things to get...never enough time! I'm beyond ready for some nice down time spent relaxing with family and friends. Speaking of - on a side note - my high school girlfriend is coming into town in a few days from Oklahoma...weeee! The holidays really are still magical....
Happy Friday everyone! Stay warm!
