Life likes to grant little wishes every now and then.


It happened!

I asked and I received.

Life granted me my little snow day wish!

I seriously cannot believe that this is actually happen just like a week after I put in my formal request for a snowday with the weather/newscaster/storm center gods. But it's true. And not only is it true, it's like hugely true. Apparently when aforementioned gods come through, they come through in a blizzard of record proportions kinda way. You won't catch me complaining.

So how did this all begin? Well, I went to work today and at 11am, my boss came in, cancelled classes for tomorrow and that was the end of that. Anti-climatic right? No storm center theme music. No newspeople in sweaters. No 6am wake up call. But again, you really will not catch me complaining because I am so super excited.

But wait, it gets better. Not only do I get a snow day, but I also get a whole entire day with my husband! My snow day just happens to fall on a Wednesday which happens to be my husband's day off which means we get to spend a full day together where neither of us works which hasn't happened since Christmas eve. So you can certainly understand my excitement.

This day will most likely include all of the following, but perhaps not in this order:
1) Cinnamon buns (speaking of which, last week at Corner Bakery, I asked for a cinnamon bun and the guy looked at me like I was certifiably nuts and then said, "You mean a cinnamon roll?" Uhh yeah, I guess I do if you are unwilling to give it to me unless I conform to your midwest ways and call it a cinnamon roll. And while we're on the topic, cinnamon rolls are wicked good, jerk.)
Heavily disputed, but always amazing, especially when warm.

2) Orange juice
This is the only OJ we drink because, come to find out, my husband only accepts Tropicana and I desperately need calcium since I detest milk.

3) Sleeping in

4) Ice Road Truckers (Best show about Canada ever. Maybe the only show about Canada...)

5) Taking down our X-mas tree...finally. (Mexicans like to keep up decorations until Feb 2nd, which just so happens to be... tomorrow! Seriously, best-timed snow day ever.)
Anyone know how to right-side-up my Christmas tree? Cause I sure don't. Regardless, she was a by-mistake-classy little tree. Remind me sometime to post a picture of the one-legged girl throwing a snowball ornament we received at a party.
6) Cuddling
Wow. Disturbing. I've got a lot questions about this.

7) annnnnnnnnd sweatpants. All day.
Thanks Wikipedia for letting me know what sweatpants are and for sharing an example. What does Michael Scott say about Wikipedia? Oh right, "Wikipedia is the best thing ever. Anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject. So you know you are getting the best possible information."
With this wish-granted snow day, I think I understand where the Man of La Mancha was coming from when he sang:

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

You dream that impossible dream, Man of La Mancha, and tell that large-chested lady to get out of the shot.
She's stealing your thunder.

I might be so bold as to say that I, too,  have dreamed the impossible dream and reached the unreachable star.

Now if only I could I could reach the remote....
