Icy Days

On Tuesday both of our work places closed due to the weather, so about mid day we got out and went a few miles down the road to North Park Mall. We ate at City Bites and saw the movie Australia. That night I made potato soup for the first time and it was good!

Today my work was closed again and Michael didn't have to be at work until 11. About mid day I met my friend Heather at the gym, and then later we headed out to cuppies and joe and worked on paperwork. Now while doing paperwork isn't the greatest on your day off, it is much better with a good cupcake, chai, a friend, and warm atmosphere.

YAY for snow days! I feel so blessed this week! It was like I got a weekend right in the middle of it, and it was great to spend some time with Michael since we really won't see eachother until Saturday night.
Tomorrow night after work I am headed to Dallas with two girls I went to grad school with. Friday we will meet up with some other girls we went to grad school with and go to a conference where the presenter co-created one of my favorite types of couple and family therapy! I understand that this is not interesting for most people, but this a really exciting, special chance for me! I can't wait!

Michael had an OC event in Dallas this weekend, so we went down early Saturday morning and came back Sunday afternoon. The event went well and we got to have a little bit of fun as well.

We went to Sprinkles and brought some back for my sister to try.

On the way home I was telling Michael about my busy week and all the things I have going on. I started getting a little overwhelmed just thinking about it. Thursday night after work I am headed back to Dallas for a conference that I am REALLY excited about. I will get back late Friday night and leave my house at 6:45am Saturday for another conference in Tulsa. The week just seemed like a lot because I have a lot of early mornings, late nights, and no time on Saturday to catch up. I asked Michael to pray for me not be overwhelmed as we were going to bed and I felt a little better...if only I had known that we would have the "State of Emergency"/ice storm 2009 this week. My office closed today at 1:00 and is closed tomorrow. It is so nice to have some extra time to get caught up on things at home and paperwork for work.
Michael braved the roads and went to the OU/OSU basketball game tonight in Stillwater- against Rick Mitchell's advice!

Hope everyone stays safe, warm, and with power!
