In case you want to know my definition of absolutely nothing, here it is:
I woke up at 5 because I was so excited that it might be a snow day. It was, and I couldn't get back to sleep. Yes, I have already been called a dork. The Brain was so so happy *cough* when I turned on the tv to watch the snow coverage. Idk. I like to watch it, ok? It's almost like there's a story with a plot and everything, and if I turn it off, I might miss it.
About 8 am I got on the treadmill, still watching the snow news. Oh, and the Biggest Loser from last night, which I haven't seen the end of yet, so don't tell me who got kicked off! I'll watch it during treadmill time tomorrow. Well, if there's no good snow coverage, that is.
Came upstairs, and found my girls watching their new favorite show Psych. Which is actually pretty funny. So I sat down to watch a few episodes.
Then the pediatrician called to see if we could move up our appointments so they could go home early.
We then got in the car and drove across town.
When we got there and got all signed in, I told the girls to go ahead and sit in the teen waiting room, because there were likely better magazines in there.

We stopped at Krispy Kream because it was on our way home. Do we need a better reason? Because I could throw in the fact that October is National Donut Month if it makes you feel better.
I don't think I've actually eaten a donut since last National Donut Month. But I felt entitled because I had spent my hour on the treadmill. (And I continue to wonder why I am not losing any weight. Shocker!)
I got home, made black bean soup for dinner, and then made the kids go out and shovel (hey, there ARE perks to having teenagers!). I didn't take pictures of that part because it just seemed kinda mean to hang out in here with my cozy slippers and my mug of herb tea, taking pictures of their misery.
Naturally, even though the roads were too slick to drive the 1/4 mile to the high school, we DID make it to Sonic Happy Hour.
It was especially happy today, because there was NO line in the drive through.
After that we started a 4 hour marathon of this,
which the girls didn't really remember from the last time we watched it. As the dramatic closing music began, Mimi let her dissatisfaction be known. Loudly. While the rest of us laughed. It was quite amusing, really. The ranting sounded a little like this: "I mean, I guess it's good that he got a life and everything, but that whole thing really stinks," over and over again.
Here's what my back deck looked like a couple of hours ago... with predictions for another 24 hours of snow coming up.
ooooh! Live-blogging the snowstorm sounds almost as fun as watching it for hours on tv. And I know anyone who reads my blog is especially interested in reading about watching snow fall. And grass grow. And paint dry. I mean, you're here, aren't you?
Now the the girls are all working on a puzzle together.
Overall, it was a fantastic day of Nothingness.
I just got the message that we will have another snow day tomorrow. Stay posted for my dream come true: Live snowstorm blogging.
I know. You're pumped.
