I’m dreaming of a white…Wednesday

Holy snow batman!  This is what I saw when I woke up this morning:

There’s a house in there…somewhere.  Photo courtesy of my Dad

I was giddy as a little school girl, because school cancellations and snow days are WAY more fun as a teacher than they ever were as a student.  I’m sure I’ll feel differently about that once I’m a parent, but for now, I’ll take it!  The snow day came at the perfect time.  As you can tell from my lack of posting the last few days, I was literally, and figuratively, knocked on my ASS with the flu.  I’m talking Sunday night to Wednesday morning I didn’t go anywhere other than from my bed, to the couch, and back.  Non stop fever, cold chills followed by hot sweats, constant full body aches, no appetite, headache up the wazoo, you name it.  Blegh.  I’m so glad the worst is over.  I still have a lingering sore throat, but feel 1,000 times better than I did.

I did end up having to take Monday and Tuesday as sick days, and then was lucky enough to get today off as a snow day, and whats that…oh the phone ringing?  Tomorrow is a snow day too?  You don’t say?!?  Well hallelujah!  I’ll be good to go by Friday, I think I can manage a 1 day work week.  And then its off to the Big Apple with Sister’s 1 and 2 for Wicked on Broadway!  Merry Christmas to us, thanks Mom!

Considering I’ve been on the couch or in my bed for the last 3 days, I haven’t gotten much done.  But I was visiting my friends over at eighteen25, and perusing through some of their older posts and came across this adorable To Do List with a free print out.  Umm hello, it doesn’t get easier than that.  So I printed it off, and stuck it in an old 8×10 Ikea frame I had lying around (free, I guess it does get even easier!).  And I love what I’ve come up with!  Thanks ladies!

Not only is this practical and cute, but it totally fits in with my New Years Resolution to stay organized.  I’ve even filled it with things to do…and checked off a few!  Productivity at its best.  I may end up painting the frame, or adding some kind of color to make it pop, but for now I’m pretty happy.  If you want to see their take, and find the free print off, click here.

I also finished off some of the coasters I made the other day.  Added felt to the bottom, and wrapped ’em up with a ribbon and now they’re ready to be a hostess gift or something next year.  Let’s just hope by next year I remember where they are!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Wednesday, and aren’t quite as snowed in, or flu like as I was!
