Snowed In


The fluffy white stuff.

Eighteen inches of the fluffy white stuff.

Daughter #2 and I flew in to Minnesota for the weekend to attend a bridal show with daughter #1 and her future mom-in-law, Ann.

It was supposed to be a quick in and out.

We are still here, snowed in by a record snow fall in a 24 hour period.  770+ flights were canceled with flights overbooked for the next 3 days.



While I miss these types of snow storms, I really want and need to get home to Colorado!  I almost didn't bring my computer.  If I hadn't, I would have been up a creek without a paddle.  At least I can work remotely.

I'm sleeping in daughter #1's bed, which is a mattress on the floor.  She's sleeping on the couch.  There is no food in this college apartment.  I'm out of clean clothes.  I did not pack boots.  Or gloves.

But, it's not all bad.  Tonight I made these starving college girls broccoli smashed potatoes and served them with a rotisserie chicken.  Speaks to my need to nurture.

They have cable, so I'm getting my fill of Food Network.  Speaks to my food obsession.

I love to hear these young women laugh, and they include daughter #2 like she belongs.  Speaks to my heart.

Such is life.  I hope you're finding the silver lining in your daily challenges.  When life gives you lemons, listen, laugh and make a margarita.

'til next time,
