Snow Day

Last night I fell asleep clutching my Blackberry.  The wind was howling, snow was falling, and my toes were cold.  Very, very cold.  I don't like to sleep with socks on.  I suffered the consequences.

I digress...  Back to the Blackberry...

See, I'm good at lots of stuff.  Maintaining a schedule is not one of them.  When I worked, I relied on BFF to keep me abreast of certain things.  What time school started, when there were scheduled days off, late starts, and snow days to name a few.  Even after I was laid off, BFF regularly kept me updated on the "things I needed to know".  As I've told you, BFF recently moved to BFFE (Bum F**k Effin' Egypt).  She now lives 5 hours north of me.  What does this have to do with falling asleep clutching a Blackberry, you ask?  Everything.

See, it was snowing last night.  A lot.  And with BFF so far away, I, for the first time in my life as a mother, needed to keep myself informed of school delays and/or closings!  So not only did I sign up for weather alerts from the Twin Cities Weather Center, I signed up for school delay and closing updates from one of the local news stations.  All of these updates were being sent to my Blackberry.  (See!  Method to my madness.)  It turns out that the schools in my fun little suburb were in fact closed today (which is amazing to me).  And I found out ALL BY MYSELF...  *proud panda*

Here's the best part, though.  Because I slept clutching my Blackberry, I received a message from BFF around 6:30 this morning telling me that schools in my town were closed and I could stay in bed.  Even 5 hours away she is taking care of me...  I feel so loved.



Ok, it's not this bad, but wouldn't it suck if it were?

What a sweet gal!! And, yes, that would suck if you were stuck in that house with your blackberry holding hand out the chimney!

My BB is my life. I heart it.

I heart talking to y'all on it.

The Missus hates my BB, but she loves hers.

Hers is quiet most of the time.

Wow, can your BFF do the same for me? :)

Mike said...

That was great of her. Just so you know it's 70 here today for the one day. Don't take away my bone now.

Daffy said...

That's awesome...makes me smile and I don't even know her. But I can imagine how much her thinking of you warmed you - from the inside out.

Hope you survived your snow day. So far everyone has survived ours :O)

That is one amazing BFF! As for the picture, I don't know, it might be kind of nice to be snowed in and away from the world for a change ... ;)
