Yes, we call it "snowmageddon" in Oregon even when we only get a light snow flurry, but this time it was for real!
It is now day 6 of being stuck at my parents' house, although to be fair, I was here voluntarily for the first few days. Didn't expect Snowmageddon to keep me from going home. Paleo seems like a distant dream and my long-ago childhood...not so much. I love my parents dearly, but this is just bringing back so many memories, lol. They've been fantastic and I have no actual complaints. They have been lovely and I've been enjoying this time immensely.
I introduced them to Game of Thrones and we're already in the middle of the second season. That's a whole lot of gratuitous sex to watch with your parents....but we're all adults...right? I have conveniently offered to make a lot of our meals while they watched the show.
I tried to make it home today and got off of the highway at the first exit I reached and went back to my parents' home. It is way too scary out there to drive the 60 miles home. Scary, and dangerous, and not worth it. There was so much slush on the roads it was impossible to drive. Plus, that packed snow that always gets really tall and hard in the middle of the lane...I don't know what that's called, but I went right back to my parents' home. I called my neighbor and asked her to put out a big bowl of food for the cats. Poor kitties :( I hope they venture out of the house long enough to find the food on the front porch.
Food? My goodness...it has been very difficult to be good this week. We've been eating a lot of fried foods...not deep-fried, but fried nonetheless. First, we had fried cauliflower (dipped in flour and egg), then fried fish patties (yum!). But, ugh!!!
Well, it's just about over. I'll be back home tomorrow.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
