Baby it's cold outside ... brrrrrr

Little-girl-freezing-in-winter-cold-clipart__k37899492Ok it is freaking freezing cold outside. This morning when my alarm went off at 5.45 (I don't really get up till about 6.15 but that's a different story) the radio guy announced it was 2 degrees F outside (that's -16C) and with the windchill it feels like -16F (-26C) Lovely. Brrrr. I am really not looking forward to going outside AT ALL. 

Over the weekend we had some snow and ice. Really not nearly as much as they had originally predicted, at least for our area, so it wasn't too bad. But the ice coated everything and then the temps dropped like crazy so I can only imagine how many areas are total sheets of ice right now. Ugh. Can I just stay inside? I know I am a baby when it comes to that stuff but I am super clumsy and I am always worried I am going to slip and break something when it's icy outside. I can deal with the snow if need be. Not saying I enjoy that either but the ice is really what worries me. 

Anyway, is what it is. Will make it through this Monday somehow. Another week ahead. Last week went ok with the wisdom teeth recovery. I am still not a 100% but of course that stuff takes time. It is getting better though so that's all I can ask for. I managed to eat some more solid foods in the last few days so I am happy with that. I was starting to get tired of mashed potatoes and such. 

The weekend was pretty low key for us. Saturday we went to the movies and saw "On the Basis of Sex" which was a really good movie. I would most definitely recommend that to anyone who hasn't seen it. It's about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and gender equality. After the movies we had a light lunch and then stopped at Rizzuto's for dinner since they were doing a 'Buy 1 Get 1 Entree" deal for the snowstorm. It was kind of funny because the snow ended up coming really late so the restaurant was absolutely packed all night with people. 

Yesterday, Sunday, we slept in late which was nice. And then had lunch at a place called Pulcinella's in Brookfield. We had not been there before but it was a good find. I would definitely go back there and try it again. Well, let's see what this week brings. The crazy cold is only supposed to last into Tuesday, then it's going to be a tad warmer with rain for two days before dropping down to around freezing for the high for the foreseeable future. I guess it is winter and January after all. Brrrrrrrr.
