Fascinating Friday Links #18

It’s pajama day! At home though, because it’s a snow day. Apparently the school district notified everyone yesterday afternoon that school would be closed today, but I didn’t find out until 8 PM when my mom suggested we make waffles this morning.

“We could make those waffles tomorrow morning!”

“Yeah, if I don’t have school tomorrow.”

“You don’t.”

“No, I don’t know yet.”

“No, you don’t have school. I told you earlier that the school texted me, called my cell, AND called my phone.”

“Oh…:D YAY!”

I wanted to slow down in 2014, but not that much.

Needless to say, I’m a happy camper. It’s like we’re still on break! I’ll be catching up on some schoolwork today anyway though, so it’s not completely a bum day.

I also want to thank you all for your kind comments on my Quads on Fire Workout video post yesterday. I promise the next video I make will not be nearly as sucky (I’ll actually film my whole body when demonstrating the moves), but you guys made me feel a little better about myself with your comments. If I do more videos, I’d probably do more vlog-type videos if you’re up for that. If not, that’s cool too. You probably read this blog for the purpose of reading it, not watching it 🙂

Side note: I was walking penguin-style yesterday because of that workout. Foam rolling was a jerk. And then Ben and I watched March of the Penguins on TV. 

Alright I’m done talking. Here are your Fascinating Friday Links!
