What a crazy week - it's been so cold! Monday was too icy to get to work so Eric and I both stayed home. Then we went yesterday and Eric went today, but we're supposed to get about 4 inches of snow and freezing rain so I stayed home. I hate driving through the Salem hills to get to work when it's icy. Some people deal with this and much worse every day - we are pathetic!

It's nice to be off work, but it's also a little boring. Yesterday at work I got my Christmas bonus so I treated myself to new curtains for the living room/dining room. The first ones I bought I just wasn't happy with. They seemed a little too gray for my taste. So this morning I got different ones and I love them so much more! Ignore the wrinkles.

My next splurge item will be a new rug, but those are spendy so it might be awhile before I get one! This one just isn't cozy at all and I want one that's soft to step on.
