Side Note:
For those who haven't figured it out, or haven't been here: The titles of most of the blogs here are song lyrics. If you google them, it should take you to the song and the song is good to listen to before, during, or after reading to help set the tone of the blog. I find music to be very cohesive with reading and writing.

Coooooooookie Crisps...

I haven't been able to stomach a bowl of cereal for breakfast in a long time. Today I ate a bowl of Cookie Crisps (actually, it's the off-brand called "Kookies!") and I have to say, they were delicious. As for the rest of the day, its been somewhat uneventful. We had almost a week with no snow and then two days of sunny 50 degree days, but this morning I awoke to 19 degrees with wind warnings and snow. Its only a little snow, but actually here I think a little snow is worse than alot. You see, when it snows alot the plows run and run and run, but when there is just a dusting they neglect to plow as much as they ought to and so we end up with slipping and accidents.
I went off post twice today to pick up some things for Claryssa-the-awesome-pet-sitter while she is out of town. On the way back I experienced my first truly fearful moment in the snow. The back road I hop on to get from where we are to one of the nearby areas faster wasn't cleared as quickly as it usually is and even though I was driving carefully and cautiously, my brakes became seemingly non-existent as I tried to stop at the intersection with the road to post. As I saw my car sliding forward and the meridian of the road I was attempting to turn onto coming closer I slowly turned the wheel all the way to the right and when I was off the ice the car began to slowly turn and stop. Luckily the traffic oncoming from either side of my car was far off so I got myself out of the middle of the road and through the gate but it was definitely a scary moment. It clarified to me that no matter how safely you drive in inclement whether, there is always a chance something could happen and so to be extra cautious and weary of other cars on the road.
As for the rest of my day, I worked magic fitting all of Claryssa's groceries into our freezer until they are back from Delaware. It was sort of like one of those wood block things you give to a toddler where they fit shapes into holes. Or like Perfection! Anyone remember that game? Oh man. I sort of want to Amazon or Ebay that now. Haha! That game will wreck your nerves...Anyway! Everything fit and that is what counts!
I'm off to do my hair and prepare for dinner out with a few people.
