What a week! I’ve been a little MIA from the blogging world for the past few days, not by choice, but because every crazy thing in the world decided to happen all at the same time. Work was insane, and I worked late pretty much every night. My stress level was off the charts because of that and a huge deadline that we’re trying to meet at the office.
On top of that, my father went for some tests this week to see if his heart is okay. Thankfully, he got the all clear after a stress test on Thursday and we can all breathe a little bit of a sign of relief. However, we also found out earlier this week that his cousin has inoperable liver/pancreas cancer and things are going downhill fast. Such a sad situation for the family.
And, in case you haven’t heard, Boston got hit with a gigantic blizzard yesterday. We got about 2 feet of snow in total. D and I have not yet ventured outside to dig out our cars (something that will surely take hours) because the windchill today was hovering somewhere around 1 degree Fahrenheit. The storm was so bad that the governor banned ALL travel starting at 4PM yesterday, meaning that you couldn’t get in your car to go anywhere, even if you wanted/had to. They were threatening to put you in jail for up to a year if you were out on the road! I’ve never in my life heard of anything like that.
I’ll have to take some pics when we go out tomorrow to shovel, but I’ve seen a few crazy ones flying around on facebook and otherwise. Like this one from down at the beach:
After this week and everything that happened, I’ve never been so happy to be stuck in the house. D and I are being very productive – cleaning, organizing and doing everything that we’ve neglected.
Were you affected by the blizzard? How is your weekend going?
