my life right now

I feel like we need a little catch up.
You know.  Since I have been gone for so long.
 I am sure you are dying to know what my day to day is like.
Twist my arm.
I'll tell you.

Here it is in a nutshell.

It snows a lot.
My kid never goes to school due to 'inclement weather.'
I work sitting at my dining room table.
With Spotify playing sad music.
I don't know why I am into such sad music.

I cook.
Or we fend for dinner.
(which means popcorn for me, protein of some kind for Chris, and pasta and veggies for Ellie.)

I heat and re-heat my rice bag.
I lay it across the tops of my legs when I am working.
I think I might have permanently scarred my upper thighs from the heat.
I'm not kidding.
But at least I am warm.

I watch The Walking Dead.
and Downton Abbey.
One right after the other.
Talk about differing tastes!

I do laundry.
And do laundry.
And do laundry.

I shovel snow.
And shovel.
And shovel.

I stress about things that are completely out of my control.
Which is stupid.
But I can't help it.

I booked a vacation to Mexico.
It was either that or go crazy.
Ellie's first time on an airplane.
She is excited.
To put it mildly.

I get the groceries.
See my friends.
(But less than I used to.  I miss my people.)
Clean the toilet.
Put gas in the car.
Drop off and pick up my girl from school.
Cuddle with my husband on the couch.

Go to bed.
And get up the next morning and do it all again.

And I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.
