Fuck It Friday

I forgot to set my alarm for this morning and woke up an hour later than normal. Just as I submitted my digital health form that attested I am eligible to work in person today, a text came through canceling classes due to snow. The irony is, yesterday’s early morning roads were terrible — sheet ice. And yet, we still had school. Today, the roads were pretty clear, and it didn’t start snowing until about 5 pm.

It never quite makes sense to me how these decisions are made.

Regardless, I sat on the couch all morning and played Scrabble on my phone.

For hours.

I picked up the house a bit, took a shower, did some laundry, picked up the mail, and ran by the grocery store.

Then I watched a movie in the middle of the afternoon (which I never do).

And played some more Scrabble.

I felt guilty for being so “useless,” because I have issues with needing to be productive all. the. time.

I’m working on it. And today was good practice.

Saying fuck it feels nice from time to time.

    George Carlin used to do a routine about a drug he wanted made Fuck-i-tal. There are days where that is the perfect choice. Watching t snow for the 7th hour today, I wish I could have a dose….

    It started snowing at my house around 7:00 last night and it’s still going. I think we have about six inches at the moment, which — given the hills and the non-preparedness at the county level in terms of sanding and plowing — probably means I’ll be stuck at home for a few days. I crashed my car a couple years ago during our February snow because of compound ice on unplowed roads; it’s not an experience I’m interested in repeating.

    But “stay inside” days have their charm. 🙂

    I’m going to spend my afternoon with hot tea, a book, and a cozy fire. I hope you’re able to do the same. (Or, if you prefer something other than your tea be ‘hot’, more power to ya! 😉 )

      Given how little snow we get here, it doesn’t make sense to spend a lot of money on the infrastructure to deal with it. We have a few plows and they do their best to clear the main roads, eventually getting to the side ones when they can. Otherwise, you really need 4 wheel drive. Thankfully, I live close to the grocery store, so driving there isn’t a fiasco, even in the worst weather. Before we moved, I would have been snowed in for days and would have had to hike out if I needed anything, as it was a private road. While I don’t love living in the city, I do appreciate perks like ease of access to amenities. And yes, I did enjoy sitting by the fire, watching the snow fall. Looks like we may have another snow storm coming next week. But, then, my weather app is always changing, so who knows.
