We had plenty of plans today. In fact, when I woke up this morning I wasn't sure which of the plans would be happening.
My mom desperately wanted to drive to Cincinnati to see her mom (my grandma), but the weather has been so bad that my uncle didn't want to drive and I was going to step in. But, with unknown conditions on roads between here and there, my mom decided it wasn't worth risking. She is very depressed about the situation for my grandma. I know she just sits and thinks about how alone she is, and confused. Purgatory on earth. For both of them.
So, then I was going to go, as regularly scheduled, to Mass and RCIA with Taylor, but just as I was walking out the door, the RCIA director called to tell me it had been cancelled. I then learned we had a level 2 snow emergency, which, at least in Ohio, means stay put unless you have a really good reason to be somewhere else. We probably could have made it to Mass, but I didn't want to end up in a ditch or plowing into another car when it wasn't crucial.
So, here I am.
I have done loads and loads (figuratively and literally) of laundry because I haven't been able to stay caught up lately.
I have made quite a bit of headway on this balaclava for Joshua. With such an extremely cold winter this year, I hope I can finish it for him soon.
I am smelling Italian sausages, garlic and tomato sauce floating in from the kitchen -- gnocci, sausage, salad, and bread coming up for dinner.
And I have a good flick on Netflix -- Paradise Road -- which I have not seen, nor ever heard the story of before.
I can't think of a thing I need, even though the snow is blowing and drifting outside, and more cold and really cold temperatures are expected. I got a bonus day, so I am happy.
