Snowpocalypse 2014

I just downloaded Google Chrome and can now see all blogs on my desktop! No more waiting for Jon’s computer to update myself on blogs! One day, I’ll have a laptop of my very own. I dream of it often. However, definitely not before the wedding. I’m hoping to invest in one when I leave for my first travel assignment in June!

Anyway, this has been yet another crazy few days. Sunday was spent moving Jon out of his storage unit and into our house completely. He had been keeping it because he thought there wasn’t enough room for everything here. There is. We just need to finish putting it all away.


What a disaster!

I went to have dinner at Atlanta Bread Company with Laura and we went to pick up a picture that I had framed from Australia and some yarn for her. When I finally made it home at 7pm to go grocery shopping with Jon and start on homework, my car wouldn’t start! I have a 2011 Honda Civic! Granted, it has 67,000 miles on it, but still! Jon and I have deduced that it is probably the sensor on my starter, so either he will try to learn how to change it out or I’ll take it to the shop. Not positive yet. But we ended up having to drive out to my parent’s house to pick up my mom’s car so we can take mine to the shop this week (my dad also has a company car so they technically have an extra). We haven’t really discussed the plan on my car yet because…

It’s Snowpocalypse 2014! But really. Monday was spent working. Then doing homework. Today I worked 7-3p and it started snowing halfway through my shift. All of Jon’s classes were cancelled and since my mom wasn’t too keen on the idea of having me drive her car home in the snow/possible ice, I asked Jon to come pick me up. After a really slow day at work (apparently snowy days keeps the patients away), he managed to make it up to the hospital an hour after I got off work (it took him 2 hours to get there). I just talked to my dad and my mom has been driving home from work for EIGHT HOURS! She only works about 10 miles from home and she left at 1:30 this afternoon! It’s horrible here! She’s about 2 miles from home now but my dad said she’s not moving at all on the road!

This isn’t where I work, but this was downtown Atlanta. Notice all the traffic.


Top left is my condo with snow, bottom left is our parking lot with snow, and of course, the right is my handsome fiance with his snowball!

We didn’t hit much traffic heading back home, thankfully! I showered when I got home, took a quick nap, and then have been working on biology ever since! Any biology people out there, let me just tell you how much I dislike the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Over an hour later, a phone call to my lab partner, and lots of erasing, I managed to finish 3 problems. I still have a ton of biology to catch up, unfortunately! Well, not even catch up on, but really to just remain with the pace of the class. I hate these hybrid classes!

Anyway, there has been a serious lack of gym time. I had good intentions of going Saturday but decided to have a date night with Jon instead (after I worked most of the day). Sunday we never actually made it to run the Hot Chocolate 5k because somebody assured me twice that we did not need to pick up our race packets before the race! Obviously, I didn’t verify this because I trust what people tell me. Somebody never checked the website. So, $110 out the window. Awesome. And yesterday was a work day and today was a snow day. I have a feeling the snow will be around tomorrow too, so I have no idea what will happen with the gym. I have paid for a CrossFit membership now so I’m ready to be going at least twice a week again but I guess the snow has other plans. I’m sure the city will be shut down tomorrow. Except for the hospitals, and Jon has to work so I’ll be home alone all day long 😦 Just kidding. I’m kind of excited to have a day at home alone.

Too bad we don’t have more food in the house. Also, I ate out way too much in the past week and also have been eating horribly. I ate four brownies yesterday. Wait, five. I had another after work. And then today, one of the doctors at work ordered us pizza (lucky delivery girl who sat in traffic for 1 1/2 hours to bring us our pizza at the hospital!) so I had two slices. I haven’t cooked in awhile because I have literally been working and doing schoolwork nonstop! I can’t wait to graduate in May!

Okay, off to start working on my biology! Everybody have a good week!

    Stay warm! I’m lucky enough to be able to walk to school and the hospital I work at so I haven’t had to brave the roads today but we’re covered in my part of Charlotte. Tomorrow’s going to be a mess when it freezes 😦

  2. What is that brown thing on top of the green bin. A rifle case? just curious. 🙂
