Seems everyone in the ATL is getting a little bit restless. Most of us have been stuck at home since Sunday night. Those who have tried to brave it and drive in to work have quickly turned around and decided it was easier to work from home than fight the ice. Many of us work from home frequently anyway, so the icy conditions really just give us a reason to stay at home and be productive!
D & I have been trying to appreciate our time stuck at home and last night we decided the simplicity project actually worked! We live much simpler lives than we did 6 months ago. The thought of staying in the house another day makes us smile rather than cringe. Our cars haven’t been driven since Sunday evening. We’ve been creative about meals – using ingredients we already have to make yummy deliciousness. Our cats are loving the constant company (the bird feeder on the porch helps alleviate boredom too). I’ve made new pillows, a couple of new memory boards, done all the laundry, and deep-cleaned the apartment. Our driveway is a hill full of ice and with temperatures not going much above freezing today or tomorrow, it looks like we may be stuck inside until the weekend.
All in all, I’m okay with it. I could use a few more work from home days – not only have I gotten all sorts of personal projects done, I’m in a good place to be almost caught up at work very soon! Here are a few pictures of our excitement (all from indoors of course!)
