things to do when snowed in for 2 days...
Well, I mostly rested, read, did laundry, and watched movies with the girls. But I also found myself looking on craigslist quite a bit. I posted my parents cars they are trying to sell and one sold already! I also bought this chair off craigslist. It is an Ikea recliner and I have wanted this exact chair for over a year. I love the size of it for our tiny living room, and I have always wanted a recliner so that I can have my feet up when reading in the mornings. It was only a few months old and half the price of what Ikea sells it for. YEAH!!!
Also, I got my sewing machine out, cut up an old sweater, and made India these warm pants and hat set. She loves them. They fit her well and will hopefully fit her for a couple more years if my stitches hold up:) I can just fold down the pant legs as she grows! Yay, for recycled clothing and a bonus yay for recycled clothing that lasts longer than one season:)
So, I have found that there are some positive aspects to 2 feet of snow. I feel incredibly rested and productive at the same time. I hate all other aspects of the snow though. Sorry, I know I am somewhat of a scrudge for saying that. Chris left town today and we may be getting 20 more inches tomorrow. I am thankful for our neighbors and friends that are willing to help me shovel and watch the girls a little when they are home for snow days and I still have to go see patients!
