sleepless in cedar city.November 21, 2015
This week has been a lot of things-- some good and some bad-- but I'm just glad it's Saturday night and I'm sitting down (emphasis on the sitting down part) in my living room cuddled up next to Husband in a giant pile of blankets. You know those weeks that magically morph into like... seven years? That's the kind of week this week has been.
//Baths have been my method of warming up as of late-- I have this special technique where I just sit in burning hot water until I start sweating... THEN, when I get out of the water, the freezing cold air just feels like normal air for approximately five minutes and I have just enough time to put on eighteen layers of clothing and jump in bed before my body temperatures balance out again.
//I've always liked snow but I've also always really disliked driving in the snow. But due to an experience I had on Monday, I'm now at a point where I dislike snow and absolutely abhor driving in the snow. It's silly, really. There I was, making my way to the sunny part of southern Utah, when all of a sudden I found myself in the midst of a snow-swirling blizzard. Now, it wouldn't have been that big of a deal-- except for the fact that my windshield wipers stopped working. On the freeway. When I was behind two semi-trucks. I literally couldn't see a thing out of the windshield. I was praying and saying all sorts of nonsense like, "I shoulda been nicer to my sister when I was five," and "I never got to go to Norway," but then I managed to somehow navigate my way off the freeway and survive. So that was good. It was just kind of a pathetic situation, being stranded at a truck stop because of broken windshield wipers. Now I'm aware of how important those little windshield wipers really are.
//I hate being cold.
I wish I had more to say. But I'm kind of brain dead, which makes the production of words a really difficult task. It's almost painful, really. For now I think I'll just settle by saying that I'm really grateful for warm pajamas and hot baths and a comfy bed and my permanent cuddle buddy.
