Today I had a meeting smack in the middle of the day. I'm glad I pushed the time back as far as possible. Who knew I would awake at 4 a.m. to no power (thank you late-winter thundersnow!) and an empty tummy. The empty tummy was an easy problem to fix; no power however, required a little bit more than a bowl of maple shredded wheat. I had trouble getting back to sleep because I need a humidifier running constantly this time of year -- dry air makes it nearly impossible for me to get comfy. After 2 hours of just laying there in the dark (no lights remember) I gave up, and by that time my tummy was empty again anyway ;-).

Another factor contributing to my insomnia this morning was we weren't sure whether DH would be able to spring his car from the garage with the power out. If the garage wouldn't open, then I would need to drop DH at work since we have a closet-sized 1-car garage and I park on the street. Lucky for me the power came back at about 8:30 and DH was still preparing to leave.

This is what I wore to my 2 p.m. appointment. I loved the colors and the layers. Surprisingly I was OK with only earring a watch and a small ring for jewelry. I have worn this before (pic 2) and I doubt that beyond this week I'll be able to wear this jacket. I'll end here because now I'm rambling.
