This past week the polar vortex attacked, and I was ill-prepared. This shouldn't have happened. The local meteorologists had been excitedly forecasting this weather event for the better part of a week. Bad...it's going to be bad! "Winter apocalypse 2014!" Part of me assumed that a snow would be in my future. I grabbed a few extra books at work, stopped by the grocery storm for some snacks (and got a rather amusing glimpse of what stores will look like when the zombie's invade our town), and bought my not so little dog a winter coat to keep the chill away when she went outside.
What I didn't do is have a plan of attack to actually get things done. Did I do some much need cleaning? No. Did I get ahead on my blogging, scheduling out posts and organizing my thoughts? No. Did I plan a reading order for the books I checked out from the library in the hopes of actually getting them read? No. What did I do? I sat in front of the television watching movies (for three days!), gaining five pounds in the process.
My snow days were ill-used to say the least. Next time...next time I will be prepared. I will schedule Just Dance time to get my heart pounding. I will limit myself to one movie a day. I will buy cans and cans of green beans, and I will put my dog in time out for a little break, settle in a comfy chair, and get lost in a good book.
I hate you Indiana weather. Is it spring yet?
