Well, the roads were clear so I could get to work today. If I had to go much further north I wouldn't have made it. We did get a few snow flurries while I was there, but nothing that stuck. It was a very busy day so I didn't run up and down the stairs but twice. Oh well, so goes life. Tomorrow is a new day and I'll get back on the trainer.
On a brighter note, I have an orthodontic appointment in the morning at 9 and they will schedule removal of my braces! I will be so very happy to eat normally again.
Life is good.

The big storm seems to have gone around us. There was snow everywhere but here. We got lots of sleet and freezing rain. Saw just a few small flakes today, but no accumulation. Most roads are open again, so looks like I will be back to work tomorrow, unless roads are closed again tonight.
Way to cold and wet for me to get out and ride, so used the trainer. Got in 30 minutes yesterday and 25 minutes today. Add in the 30 minutes walking the dog, and I've gotten my cardio for the day. Not sure the dog is enjoying our walks, she doesn't get to sniff around to her hearts content.

We went to church this morning, took the grands out to lunch, sent DD on her way back to school early and made it home before the sleet started. DD had to drive through some sleet on her way, but her roommates helped her carry everything in the dorm and she is save and sound. The dorm has a generator and she is stocked with goodies to eat if the power goes out or they don't feel like walking to the dining hall. DH left for work about 1:30, it started sleeting about 2:30 and hasn't stopped yet. We have a nice layer of ice on everything, but the power is still on. Hopefully DH won't have to spend the night at work and will be able to get home at midnight. Now, if the dog would just take herself out for her walks ....

They are still predicting ice and snow tomorrow night (and it was 60 today!). We are in the .25 -.5 inches of ice and dusting of snow. I don't work till Wed, but power tends to go out when we get any ice. I made chicken casserole, chili, and chicken and rice soup today. Have lots of fruits and vegetables, and plenty of milk and bread. Cars and generator are all full of gas, lights are charged, radio has batteries and I'm set for a week of bad weather now. DD will leave to go back to school before the bad weather gets here, can't have her on the road in freezing rain.
Did get a bit more in the sewing room, got some walking in, and helped DGS clean his room so he could come spend the night tonight. Not an outstanding work day, but several small accomplishments.
Life is good.

Well, didn't get as much exercise today. Was working on the sewing room when DD came home from college and we had to cancel the cable and internet, pay utilities, get some more boxes and did some more packing in her apartment. Then we went out for dinner. I was pretty good, had a salad and grilled salmon and baked potato. Haven't ridden my trainer yet, but will ride and do my 10 vidoe before I go to bed. She can finish her laundry while I ride my bike. Tomorrow night I will have the grands, so my exercise will be chasing them around.
They are predicting several inches of snow Sunday night thru Monday morning. DD will have to go back to school earlier than planned to avoid the icy roads. It was 60 degrees today and is still 50 and it's almost 9. Is it any wonder everyone is sick.
Life is still good.
