I don't know about you, but whenever I think about getting snowed in, I think about reading tons of books, drinking good wine with a stew or some roasted chicken followed by hot cocoa on the couch under a blanket while watching a movie. Books! Booze! Food! Movies! Snuggles!
I am home right now, still waiting on Alex to arrive home safely (it's 7:00 and coming down!) I've got a chicken in the oven, a glass of wine next to my laptop and NPR on the radio. But as I was waiting for my chicken to be done, I found myself reading the same boring status updates over and over again on facebook, mindlessly zoning out on Twitter and feeling a little blah.
"WTF. A blizzard is happening. This is special. Make the most of it!" My brain suddenly yelled at me. So I have decided, right after I finish this blog post, to unplug for the weekend. By unplug I mean take a break from the internet. I'll still watch movies and TV, I'll still use my laptop to work on writing, but no online stuff for a few days. No one romanticizes a blizzard by saying "I'm going to read a ton of shit on the internet and be on Facebook all weekend!" Or at least I know I don't.
Will be checking in again on Monday. I'd love to come back to comments, so please, tell me what you're up to this weekend. What good books are you reading? I just finished this one. And did you have the perfect snowed in weekend too? I hope so.
