This week I was trying really hard to get out a mid-week post, but then I realized that the stress wasn’t worth it, and it was okay to not post anything. The moment I gave myself permission the stress lifted a bit.

We had a good holiday, but there were some not-so-good aspects.

On the Thursday before Christmas my husband drove 1.5 hours away to do a Christmas thing with friends. It started to freeze rain that evening so they decided to stay the night and come home in the morning.

The problem was that a monster storm came through Ontario and it didn’t stop snowing until Boxing Day night, so he missed Christmas and didn’t make it home until Monday.

The funny thing is, the area we live always seems to be protected by some kind of bubble because any bad weather seems to skirt right past us which was no different this time.

We got a light dusting of snow and other places got annihilated by it.

Since he was really, really rural the snow drifts were 8 feet high and the roads were closed. So he was snowed in with flickering power, and we were barely affected at all here.

So that was my Christmas drama. My present showed up though so that was nice.

  1. Gaaaah…the Sambas. My nemesis. Like you I’ve searched high and low for a pair. Ended up “building” a shitty facsimile on Nike’s site. They’re ok…def not the same. Then today I see my husband sporting a red pair, that I’d forgotten I bought for him like seven years ago. They’re red. They don’t fit me.

    I’m now sad. But at least I have company. Best of luck on your search.

    • It’s so frustrating! They had the red in stock for a moment here and I debated too long (I think it was 10 minutes 😂). I’m really leaning towards the black but I’ll take any at this point. If I see them again I need to grab them and run. No thinking allowed. I hope that they’ll restock now that Christmas is over.

      Good luck to you as well.
