Of course, as I was getting my teeth cleaned, the rain (and by rain I mean frozen chunks of dihydrogen monoxide) was pouring down. On my way home, I started noticing that the trees were covered in ice (I took pictures on my phone, but can't upload them). As I pull into our driveway, I see our beloved weeping willow tree hovering close to the ground; I guess its' tears froze :(. RIP weeping willow tree. It's the second one we have managed to kill. We're pretty sure our pine trees died as well. I told mom that God must not have wanted us to have trees...she wasn't amused. lol.
A few hours later, our electricity went off. What, you may ask, did I do? Well, I got all of my blankets, bundled up in them, and slept for an amazing 3 hours. It was glorious. By the time I woke up, the electricity was back on. Upon this realization, we immediately put on a pot of stew, which included yellow carrots! I didn't know there was such a thing. My mother (bless her heart), knows I hate most veggies especially the kind that are weird colors, picked out most of the nasty yellow carrots :). Now that is love...
We're fixing to pull our our movies and start a marathon (b/c there is NOTHING on tv, besides a documentary about Hitler which I have already seen).
Our marathon will more than likely consist of:
The Hangover (I rented it today)
Julie & Julia (also rented)
Gone With the Wind (one of my all-time favorites)
The Wedding Date (possibly my favorite movie of all time)
The Proposal (also a favorite)
and anything else I may find in my movie stash :)
Stay warm and spend your extended weekend wisely (hopefully with the ones you love)!
