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.

  1. Sounds like you were at the Black Ridge...part way between Cedar and St. George. That's when you roll your windows down to survive. The worst part of driving in snow are the other drivers! The ones that go the speed limit, when you go 5 mph...then they hit an ice patch, slam on brakes, and try to take out 6 lanes of traffic! Good times!

    1. Gawl! Yeah, it was scary and definitely not any fun! That's about where I was when I got trapped in the storm! It's so scary-- but I agree, the worst part about driving in the snow is all of the other drivers!

  2. You and me both! Today it rained/snowed for the first time and I'm already dreading the next four months of cold. I'm all about warm baths, lots of blankets and a great cuddle buddy :)

    1. I'm so glad we're on the same page. I sometimes like when it's cold, but for the greater portion of the cold months I find myself cursing the cold weather and wishing it was autumn again!

  3. Hey there! Not sure if I have ever commented(which makes me seem super creepy. Uhm, whoops), but wanted to say I have been popping in here for years. I must have found you while clicking through links in blogs... I am not sure! But I ended up here one day and you intrigued me enough with your wild heart and pretty words that every so often, for some reason or another, I think "I wonder whatever happened to Calea Upsidedown?" (Yes, in my brain, that is your name!) & I pop over to catch up. Last time I came by, you had returned from Korea for a short while and then went back. So goodness, what a surprise to see you are back and married! Congratulations! I am absolutely thrilled to see you are doing well & so happy in love! So fun to have kept up with you all this time! Just wanted to step out of my creepy stranger box to say Congratulations, sweet lady. You made a lovely bride! :) All the very best, Lacey

    (I once kept up with a blog, but lost touch with it. Hoping to get myself back over there soon though! You can pop over there so maybe I don't seem QUITE as creepy, haha! Laceyinlove.blogspot.com)

    2. Hello there! It's so nice to meet you (electronically)! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and say hello. yes, a whole bunch has happened in my life over the course of the last year or so. But I guess that's what makes life so exciting and what not.

      I'll be sure to stop by your blog (but not because I think you're creepy-- because I love meeting new people reading new blogs!) Don't worry, I don't think you're even remotely creepy. Let's be friends. :)
