Maggie cuddled me down last night, and I never got back up to blog!
After work was over, I cleaned the house while waiting for Nick to get home and then got started on dinner.
All was going well until I actually started cooking. Do you ever have those times where everything just kind of goes a little wrong?
That’s how it was last night.
First, the pan I was using wasn’t working good. The potatoes were sticking, even though I had a good amount of oil in the pan.
So, I switched out the pans which meant it took twice as long for the potatoes to cook.
By the time we sat down to eat dinner, it was after 8 pm! Even with all the problems, it was a good frittata and I’m excited to have leftovers tonight.
Once we got everything cleaned up from dinner, I laid down on the couch with Maggie and just fell asleep. Oops!
Fast forward to this morning, though, and everything is going pretty good!
- I remembered to set my alarm
- Work is delayed right now because we’re getting MORE snow! Already about 4 inches right now
- We gave our smelly puppy a bath this morning
- I’m having a pretty good hair day
- I had an awesome breakfast
- Nick made coffee :)
Because of the delay, I got to take advantage of the sunlight this morning – or the reflection off the snow, actually.
While I was cooking Nick’s oatmeal, he saw my diced apple and decided he wanted some too, so I made double the apple oats today.
My bowl had:
- 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
- 1 small local apple, diced and microwaved with cinnamon for 2 minutes
- 2 Tbsp craisins
- 1 Tbsp crunchy pb
I love the apple + craisin + pb mix! So good I didn’t even miss the chocolate or butterscotch.
Speaking of snow…
I’m wondering if it will ever stop here?
I’m not worried so much about the snow here, but our connecting flight to Spain on Thursday is supposed to leave from Philly which is getting SLAMMED with snow again today and tomorrow.
I hope they have another place they can route us through to get us there! I guess we’ll see. I just don’t want to end up stuck in the airport – I’ve done that before and really don’t want to go through it again.
What’s your worst travel story? Funniest story?
My worst had to be the first time I ever flew by myself. I was coming home from school for Thanksgiving one year, and I got a ride to the airport with my friend. He was flying somewhere else, so I headed to my gate and got settled. My flight that morning was supposed to leave at 6 am, but that flight got cancelled so I had to go back down to the check-in and get on a different flight. I thought that was all worked out, so I dragged my stuff to that gate to find out that the gate for that plane had changed. Great.
I walked around the airport to new gate only to find out that that flight was cancelled!
Needless to say, I ended up calling my mom crying and I was stuck in the Little Rock airport for 11 hours that day, waiting on a flight home.
The weird thing? There was no bad weather at all.
Thankfully, nothing else has been that bad, so I’m crossing my fingers for this trip!
