#icepocolipse 2015

The last few days the forecast has been up in the air for what we were in store for this week.  Some models had Raleigh getting a few inches of snow.  Others had use getting up to .5″ of ice.  Yay Snow, Boo Ice!

Yesterday morning my office sent out an email stating people could work from home that afternoon should they be able.  Around 12:30 my coworkers and myself headed home.  It was a pretty slow afternoon as we waited to see what was going to happen.

Around 4:30 the wintery mix started and then came the snow.  We got a decent dusting of snow then the sleet set in.  It sleeted most of the night and we woke up to a white Tuesday!

We got lucky that we got sleet and not ice.  Ice would have been terrible considering closing is tomorrow!  Oh yeah, we are closing tomorrow!  Come Hell or Snow (or ice)!

The attorney called Matt earlier and they have pushed our closing back to later in the day.  This should be better since we have to run over to the house for our pre-close walk through.  Basically we just have to sign off that the things from our walk through have been completed.  The list would also include ANOTHER microwave.

So funny story, the replacement microwave came in last week and the door was broken.  That’s 6 microwaves between two house!  Ya’ll it’s crazy. 😉 We did get the new microwave installed at the current house and it is operational!

I told Matt we would have picked the COLDEST week of the year to close/move!  Wish us luck on Friday!

It’s about time!

It’s about time!

So Wednesday was girl’s night and apparently while out I ate something weird because yesterday I felt like crap.  I actually woke up around 1 am and thought I was going to pass out.  Not fun.  Yesterday was spent lying on the couch watching movies.   Thankfully I feel better today.

We had an off-site meeting this afternoon for work so I was able to leave when the meeting was over.  Now I’m at home waiting on the hubs so we can go to Lowe’s and buy a new microwave.

True story – Matt’s microwave, the one over the stove, has not worked in ohhh, four years.  When I moved in I brought my little microwave that sits on the counter.  And now that the wedding is over we have a few more small appliances and no room for them.  Getting rid of the little microwave would add some counter space.  So I finally convinced Matt we MUST get a new one.  Thanks to all our spending and our cash back rewards, our credit card will end up paying for the new microwave.  Whoop whoop!  Now we just need to go get one and install it.  YAY!
