And Yet Another Snow Day

It's all happy days and smelling roses right now.  Because, once again, I get another 4 day weekend.  Thanks to snow that hasn't done anything to my area except make the roads a little wet.

Ah, the joys of working in a rural school in the mountains.

I've said that before, right?  Yeah, a lot.

Last night, around 6pm, I got the call that school was being cancelled again for today due to icy road conditions in the county my school is located.  So, what does that mean for me?  I get another day off work, I'm not trapped in my house, and I get to go and take my kids to my parents' house for the weekend because the dance I was supposed to go to tonight got cancelled.

Win. Win. Win.

AND, because the roads are completely clear where I need them to be, I get to go look at the house I've been waiting to look at all week much earlier than planned.

Once we go look at the house, I'm off to my parents' to drop the kids off so that Hubby and I can spend some quality time together.  Alone.

The plan right now is a day of shopping and then off for a romantic dinner tomorrow.  Lord knows we need some alone time to talk, relax, and get some stuff off our chests.

I'm so stressed and a little depressed about this whole house situation.  But, one good thing is that it isn't affecting my eating situation.  I stepped on the scale this morning and noticed I've lost quite a bit of weight this week.  Would be really nice to hold on to that loss all weekend.  I guess the stress diet really does work.! HA!

While I haven't been doing the strict Atkins, I have been limiting my carb intake quite a bit - and I guess it's doing something or I wouldn't be down as much as I am.  Oh, and did I mention Aunt Flo's in town?  To see a loss like that with her around is another aspect that's made me say "hmmm".

I've started getting notices that The Race for the Cure is coming up pretty soon.  I've already agreed to join a team this year with some folks from work.  This will be my 4th year at doing that 5K.  Regardless of all the setbacks I've made in my fitness level, giving up that 5K just isn't something I've ever considered.  I guess that's a good thing, right?

Well, as you can see I'm all over the place today.  I should probably just leave it at that and get to getting on my plans for my extra day off.
