Snow Day

We're snowed in today... kind of. We had ice and freezing rain first, then snow on top of that, so schools and some businesses closed. I still have to go to my grad class tonight, though. Taking the day off helped, so I was able to put some finishing touches on my final draft of my paper. I can also get some last minute studying done for my exam tonight. Gah. I'll be so glad when this semester is over.

Things are almost getting back to normal around here again. It's odd to see your home and its landmarks on national (and in some cases, international) news sites for days on end. People here are intent on healing, however, so I hope the focus can stay on that instead of the incomprehensible act itself.

On a much, much lighter note... Food Network is awesome. I've been receiving the 12 Days of Cookies emails for the last couple of weeks. I can't wait to try out some of the recipes. If any of them are even minimally successful, I might even post some pictures.


For those of you who celebrate the upcoming holidays, how many of you are:

a) completely finished shopping
b) have mailed or emailed (or posted online) your holiday greetings/cards/pictures/letters.
c) both a and b
d) have almost finished a and/or b
e) have started a and/or b
f) are you kidding? I don't worry about that until the day before the holiday!

Let me know. I'm interested... and I would also say that I am at E. Surprised? You shouldn't be. ;-)

I am at D. But I don't send out Christmas cards, so I only had to get presents.

I can't remember whether I left a comment on your other post, but I have been thinking of you. I found out that a family friend was actually in the store when it happened but luckily didn't see anything and is fine. So scary.

I'm at "e" also. But I feel like "are you kidding?"

I've only had one white Christmas. I must say I prefer a hot one! Probably just what I'm used to though.

I'm a D. Only 1 present to buy, and I know what it's going to be. And I don't send out cards. Too many people, too much effort. None of my friends do it either, so it's all good!

Well...I would LIKE to be c. But I am really e. I have a few more presents and a lot of cards to do. I'm also waiting until I get home for break so that I can use my mom's stamps. And finals are such a PAIN!

Good luck with yours!

i think i'm somewhere between e and f... i've kind of almost started?

i was hoping for a white christmas last year as i was in japan (as opposed to australia) but, for God knows what reason, it snowed in australia and was sunny in japan. i really do hate the weather sometimes. since when does it snow in summer? it's usually 35-40 degrees (95-105 F)

I've been a C for at least a week now... I actually feel like driving around the parking lot at the mall, roll down my window and scream: "I'm done! I'm done!" I'm so done I'm crispy! Hee.
