Snow Day #2

Shoveling snow

After these last three weeks I firmly believe that it will never stop snowing, and summer will never come.  We have gotten more snow than I have ever seen in my lifetime, and that is the truth.  Friday and Sunday into Monday were truly terrible storms.  I took the above picture yesterday morning while shoveling the driveway, so you could see the amount of snow we got Sunday night.  I must thank my wonderful neighbor who came over with his snow blower and saved me a lot of work.  Is anyone else finding that this is a particularly harsh winter?

We got a butt load of snow on Friday, causing me to get snowed into Minot (I work there and it is an hour from my home).  This is the same day that we had our “girl’s night” out scheduled, and I was cranky.  Rita came to my rescue and set up a girl’s night of our own, and she let me crash at her lovely home for the night.  You are the greatest Rita!

Quite a few of us at the gym were having a bad week (myself included) and we all needed to get out and relax, so Rita called up some of our friends, and we headed out for dinner, drinks, and to see the new Halle Berry movie, The Call.  All of us had such a great time laughing and hanging out at dinner.  As for the movie…Our hearts were beating like we were running a marathon during the whole movie.  I wish I had worn my heart rate monitor just to see how many calories I burned from just watching the movie.  The writers did an excellent job keeping the viewer on the edge of their seats.  I cannot wait for our next girls night out, and we are now planning to have one each month!

Sunday brought our next snow storm.  Thankfully the worst of it didn’t hit till way late at night, so our friends could still come over for dinner.  I’m one of those people who love having company over and feeding them, and for dinner we had tacos…You can never go wrong with a taco night!  I also tried a new homemade Spanish Rice recipe, and it was a big hit.  I suggest you try it too.

I woke up Monday morning to school cancellations, and I was unable to get to work myself.  As soon as the sun came out my son and I headed outside to work on our snow fort and play in the snow.  I think the snow fort came out pretty well!  There was a long tunnel leading to the main part of the fort which was huge!  My son was able to launch quite a few snowballs at me from the safety of his fort.

I’m headed to the gym this morning to teach my two spinning classes and get in a run.  If your are looking for some workouts, try some of the ones below, or one of my treadmill or elliptical workouts!
