Plus, in the summer most of my favorite comfort foods like beef stew, lasagna, mac and cheese, pot roast, all feel too heavy to eat when it's warm outside. Plus, I hate that my electric bill goes up during the warmer months because I require an Eskimo chilled home. Not to mention when it does snow, I get SNOW DAYS! You just don't get that in the summer...
After Valentine's Day the weekend was pretty quiet. Saturday I had a lot of stuff to catch up on and managed to get all of my outside errands done before we got more snow and wintry mix. It's always preferred to be safe and cozy in your house watching the snow.
Sunday was much of the same, with slightly less ambition. The roads were cleared up, luckily, before I went over to my Mom's for some delicious bouillabaisse. It was supposed to be a "family Sunday dinner" of sorts, but it ended up just being me. No complaints!
I also got a lot of texts from my husband during the evenings which was so comforting and yet teasing. He is still in limbo pretty much doing scut work until he gets assigned to a proper unit. He will (hopefully) get the all clear from the surgeon on Wednesday and hopefully not have to repeat too much of his training since he's been made to wait. I wish he could have spent this limbo time with me instead of being cooped up.
On this sunny Monday, I'm very much wishing that my company had President's Day off. However, my drive in to work this morning was delightfully quick. No traffic.
