We had another snow day on Friday.  At first I did complain because I was anxious to go back to school on Friday.  I had my stuff ready on Thursday night and was getting ready to go back to bed when I received “the call”.  What?  Are you sure?  That is what I said to the person that delivered the “good news”.  Oh well, I guess I will stay home.

Friday morning came and I wondered what I was going to do.  I sent a text to my friend to tell her I had another day off and she told me to go over to her house.  Splendid idea!  I had “nothing” to do so I got ready and made the drive to her house.  We had no idea what we were going to do but we knew for sure that we were not going to stay home.

Of course first we had to eat breakfast.  Let’s not forget the coffee since we both LOVE it.  Then we went to Target and spent 2 hours there.  I just love that store!  I can always find something to buy whether or not I need it.  Then we went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond.  Awesome store too!  I love the way it smells!!!  By then it was lunchtime so we ate at Hugo’s Frog Bar.  OH MY GOODNESS!!!  The food there is delicious.  We started off with a pear blossom martini and baked goat  cheese.  Yummy!  Then I had lobster bisque and chargrilled marinated shrimp.  Wonderful!  Oh yeah and another martini.  We both wanted creme brulee but did not have any more room to eat so we ordered two of them to take home.  🙂

Last stop was to Ann Taylor Loft.  Great store and even better when there is a huge sale going on…60% off.  I bought a dress, a top, and sweater for about $45 and I even used my teacher discount.  I was very pleased with my purchase.  Then we went home.

You’d think that by now I would not want to eat anymore right?  Wrong.  Dinner time came and we had pizza at her house with a pomegranate martini.  Delicious.  Oh my, I don’t think I’ve ever had three martinis in one day.  That is OK though since I was enjoying my day off.  I had such a wonderful time and grateful for that snow day.

On a different note, I went to see a physical therapist and it looks like I don’t have an injury.  Big relief.  My hip, quads, and hamstrings are tight.  More stretching and less running is what I need to do.  At least I wasn’t told to stop running because that would have made me very sad.  So now I won’t run the marathon in March but might do one in May.  That is OK though.  I need to take care of this tightness so as not to make it worse.

I signed up for the Hartford Marathon.  Yay!!!  I am looking forward to it.  I also get to see and spend time with my two dear friends.  That sure makes me smile.
