Cold day in Florida

Yesterday I got a free day.


Because we had an ice storm in Florida.

You know how ridiculous that statement sounds.  We had an ice storm in Florida.  FLORIDA!

Okay, so they had reduced operations where I work and it was kind of nice having an unexplained day off.  But I was bored.

What did I do?  I'm so glad you asked.  I worked on catching up my GoodReads list.  That was good because I have been taking some time to read since the new year rolled around.  Although, now I am rethinking the whole 200 books in one year.  I only got through ten this month.  Maybe 200 is a little ambitious.

Back to the ice storm.  It was pretty intense.  I haven't felt temps like that since we went to Michigan to visit or back when we lived in Alaska.  It's just not normal.  See, in Florida we use salt for our Margarita's not for our roads.  (Wish I could take credit for that, but I got it from a friend.)

I also updated my Facebook status.  Quite a few times.  Seriously bored.

Checked my work email way too many times.

I was not sucked into another young adult drama marathon.  But it was close.

Here's what I learned from yesterday.  I am not an idle girl.  Don't get me wrong, I love my weekends.  I look forward to my weekends.  I LIVE for my weekends.  But when I get a day off, unexpectedly, in the middle of the week I need to have a plan.  Without a plan I end up losing a whole day.  There are things I could have been doing.  Unfortunately, they didn't come to me until dinner time.


I can't exist without my schedules.  This is what I learned from my cold day in Florida.
