Keen on the idea of doing some post-holiday home organization, I finally got around to setting up my Wii and signing up for Amazon Prime to enjoy the benefits of Amazon Instant. All of this hard work surmounted to me getting one step closer to crossing off one of my New Year's resolutions: watching the entire existing Downton Abbey series.
I find myself worrying about Matthew Crawley's welfare while away at War in the midst of brushing my teeth.
Concerned about the well-being of my five month old VW, I finally utilized my garage and tucked my cute little Passat away.
I have a driveway. Like, a long one. In the City, which is extremely rare. It's mostly rare I assume because City streets do not get plowed, or at least plowed well. So essentially what I'm saying is this makes for one very lengthy plateau of snow to shovel.
Knowing that a storm was a'coming, I made a list of shopping errands to get all day Saturday so as to be prepared.
I prioritized The Galleria ahead of Target and any other place that may have sold a snow shovel...hours earlier.
Fresh off hosting a Christmas dinner and New Year's Eve pre-gathering, I was stocked with the proper entertaining essentials.
Entertaining for one is gluttonous.
And then The Ugly:
While briefly letting my dog take a step out (and by step I mean just the one down from the porch) I somehow managed to lock myself out of my house. Thanks to the great fortune of close (in proximity and relation) relatives I was able to run the two blocks down to my Aunt and Uncle's for my spare key in just barely enough clothing to keep myself and Rosie from catching hypothermia.
The Very Ugly:
My nails have been forced into nudity thanks to all of winter's harshnesses. I think I speak for everyone when I say that we could all use a pop of color in our lives after this.
