Sunday Things.

Best way to spend Sunday morning?

Arrested Development and an early morning run…

Driving over to my mom’s house, throwing Maeby in the backyard and shoveling for a few hours…

Taking Maeby for a walk on sidewalks lined with three feet of snow on each side…

And baking brownies for someone special.

Easiest recipe (if you can call it a recipe) in the world to come later this week.

It’s Snowing Outside.

As much as I hoped I wouldn’t have to drive into work on Friday, I did, but only for a few hours. I headed into work for 9 a.m., at which point, it had just begun snowing.

Three hours later, at 12:30 p.m., we closed, and I headed to my mom’s house to pick up Maeby.

The roads were bad, but I survived.

I let Maeby out to run around…

Then let her back inside, and her and Mickey begged for food.

Then drove back to my apartment…

drive home

I did some cooking and fed and walked Maeby before it got bad out. We came back inside and she kept an eye on the storm…

…and then grabbed a toy and grabbed a seat under the table, as I drank a Reese’s Martini (based off of the deliciousness I experienced at the Sugar Factory in Vegas when I was there for the half marathon in December), and watched New Girl.

The rest of the evening was filled with more martinis, Skyping with Adam, oven fried chicken, and more New Girl.

This morning, Maeby woke me up bright and early to go outside. When we got to the back door though…

yup

So then we tried the front door. Maeby didn’t want to go out, so I walked through the 2+ feet of snow to clear a path for her.

When she finally went out, she was less than thrilled.

And…

It’s still snowing. And still windy.

So…

It’s looking like I will be stuck here for awhile.

Wednesday.

Wednesday was good. Except that I got my first ticket while driving. Let’s not talk about that though and instead focus on the rest of the evening.

Didn’t feel like doing much once I got home (especially since I went to a group exercise class at work before starting the day) but since it was in the 30s outside, I felt compelled to go for a run.

Needless to say, it was a good run. 6 miles, not too shabby.

Saw this on my way back in the house…

Then I picked Maeby up from daycare. She’s been super whiny lately, especially in the middle of the night. That’s my fault though, since us running sporadically together is not the same as playing with other dogs for 8 straight hours. And literally 30 seconds into our car ride home, that was evident.

And even more evident once we got home.

Then I got a ticket while driving to trivia…but anyway.

Trivia. The first round was about James Bond. I didn’t know any of them, good thing we had manly men with us who know those things. Sangria. Then some vanilla ice cream, which was delicious by the way.

And just like that it’s Thursday.

This ridiculous storm is coming tomorrow, or something. Says the Weather Channel. I opened up weather.com and saw this lovely little map:

But then I can’t be completely upset about it. Because the storm name? Winter Storm Nemo? It just makes me think of this guy.

And then I ain’t even mad.
