It's like cake with no icing

I am not a big fan of cake, never have been. But I love me some icing. If you gave me a piece of cake without any icing on it, then it would be of no use to me....I wouldn't even consider eating it.

Today Mother Nature gave me a piece of cake with no icing. I have asked, danced for, begged, prayed for, and dreamed about a snow day this year. Well guess what??? It is snowing! But what good does that do me on a Saturday?????



Now I realize you have to look close to really see the snow, but on a weekday it would have been enough to close schools. BOOOOOOOOO!!!!!


I really could have used a snow day this week. It was a very rough week at work. I can't go into details, but it is something very serious that I had to report, and it has weighed heavy on my mind all week. And if that wasn't bad enough now I am facing furlough and a 20% cut in my pay until September. I NEVER talk politics, and I won't begin now, but let's just say I am not a happy girl about this situation. Not just for me, because I will be fine, but for the military families who I know live paycheck to paycheck and already struggle to provide their family with basic necessities.

In the midst of my agony this week I thought it would be good idea to drown my sorrows in Chinese food. We got Chinese food on Wednesday night and again last night. I don't know what I was thinking. In my head I was telling myself that I deserved it because I had such a rough week...it was crazy talk. Now I am all swollen and puffy from all that sodium and I am spending the day drinking water like a mad woman trying to flush all that out. I will be cussing myself as I make 5,673 trips to the bathroom today, but man oh man were those fried beef wontons so delicious :)

Seriously...the only good thing about snow is the possibility of a snow day. I'm with you sista. /nod

Sending good thoughts you way for your tough situation. /hugs

You need to put on a pedometer, so you can feel smug at least for the many miles of exercise you are going to get walking back and forth to the bathroom to pee. ;-)

I'm sorry for all the stress at work. I hope things brighten up soon for you - or if you have to have "snow" it hits on the right days!

The sequester sucks...sorry for you and everyone else it is going to impact. Hubs travels and the airports are going to bite bigtime. The snow is pretty, fingers crossed for another one later this week for you! On your tough situation, somehow, I know that you did the right thing, even though it isn't easy. {{Hugs}}

Ha- Great minds think alike. I too 'deserved' chinese this week. I stopped twice for a shrimp egg roll and egg drop soup.....

Im going to box up all the snow I have in my back yard and ship it to you. They will have to dig you out - you'll have a snow week!
Sorry for the crappy time at work - I know you're a tough cookie and that Chinese food will help a little... Sending you cold hugs and wishes for snow.

Seriously? That would be enough snow to close the schools?

Sorry about the rough week at work. I hope things get easier for you soon, though I know a furlough won't help.
