Birthday Snow Day

Brrrr! My portion of Michigan is currently under a Wind Chill Warning from the National Weather Service that included fun little details like “Wind chills as low as 45 below zero expected.” and “The dangerously cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 10 minutes.” So, basically, stepping outside right now is like getting bitch slapped by a Wampa.


With all the snow and ice we’ve had lately I’ve been on a little unplanned vacation due to all the snow days at my work. All the schools are closed due to the weather so I’ve been able to stay cozy at home and do a bunch of writing, reading and drawing which has been really nice! πŸ™‚ I hadn’t planned on taking my birthday off from work so it’s kind of a fun little surprise having it off today. Mother Nature can be cruel AND kind. πŸ˜‰


It can be difficult finding ways to go out and celebrate your birthday when you were born in the frigid dead of winter, but this year I managed to celebrate AND stay warm, so it was a win-win. Mr. and Mrs. Cupcakes and Machetes came to stay the weekend, which included going to dinner, going to a giant arcade, prezzies of the most epic caliber, and board games galore! I also celebrated with family before the weekend came to an end, and of course that was fun too because my parents and brother (and the puggies!) are awesome. Needless to say, it was a fun but exhausting weekend, so I wasn’t totally heartbroken when school/work was canceled. πŸ˜‰ (The only thing that sucks is not getting paid for all these snow days!)


Poor Mr. Moth had to hop on his tauntaun and brave the cold today to go to work so I plan on getting good and properly caffeinated and writing my butt off. More birthday shenanigans to ensue once he gets home, but for now I’m off to work on my book with an awesome new writing program courtesy of the bestest friend in all the land, C&M. ❀


Hope any of you a bitter cold winter like us is staying as warm and cozy as possible right now. ❀

    1. Haha Thank you! ❀
      That's the hardest part about board games, finding the people to play them! πŸ˜› I'm pretty lucky that I have a lot of people in my life who like them, I just need more time for it is all. πŸ™‚

  1. Happy Birthday!!!

    I feel a tad guilty. Living in Western Oregon we are experiencing a really boring winter. Every day we get some rain or we don’t. 40 or 50 degree weather. That’s above zero, by the way. And sometimes it’s sunny.

    I feel like there’s this huge party going on and someone forgot to call us.

    Yeah got a bit carried away with the emoticons. I like the β€œgraph” at the end. I made sure it was the positive graph and not the negative one. Why, because it’s your birthday!!!!!! Funny. Your schools close because of extreme cold and ours close because of extreme heat hehe. I knocked off work at 11am the other week because it got to 44 degrees. I think my eyebrows melted into my eyes that day.

    1. Haha SO. MANY. EMOJIS. πŸ˜› Thank you so much for the birthday wishes!
      Yeah, the heat can be just as brutal as the cold, that’s for sure. I’m not a fan on extreme temperatures either way, but winter is worse in my book simply because of the icy roads.

  3. Happy Birthday!!! I hope it’s bit warmer this week. We’ve had weather whiplash in PA and my lungs cannot handle it lol. Every time it drastically changes they freak out. I’ve got some better medicine now so things should be getting better.

    Boo for not getting paid 😦 We had snow Monday and Tuesday so I worked from home which is super convenient, though they’re cracking down on it for non-weather reasons. I’m doing it tomorrow though since I’m sans car as it’s getting inspected lol.

    Glad you had a happy birthday and got to spend it with the Cupcakes πŸ˜€
