The sky keeps falling!

Oh my gosh, kids! What a day it's been, and I've not left the house! Allow me to give you an account of my not-so-exciting day, because I don't have to go to bed, as school is cancelled for the second day in a row tomorrow:

When I last blogged, I told you that I was snowed in--literally! After someone helped me shovel it away from the door, I continued on with my day. First, I decided that in order to be prepared for class tomorrow, I needed to read my history assignment. After that, I periodically came on Oasis and responded to messages and the like.

A little later on, upon deciding that I'd have to be absolutely insane to attempt driving in this weather, I called for pizza. :-D I figured I'd let someone else do the driving and I'd give 'em a nice tip for his trouble. Being the foreseeing individual that I am, I saw that since I'm in someone else's house as their housesitter until Monday and since they don't have any food in their house, I ordered two pizzas, which should last me several days.

After pizza, I got a bunch of phone calls in the next couple hours. None of them were particularly long by any means, but I just thought it was strange that I was being called so much when I normally don't at that particular time of the evening. One of the calls that I got was from a friend of mine who's the organist at one of the churches here in Portland. He asked me if I wanted to sing and play trumpet at a funeral service tomorrow for $100, and I said that I would. About 30 minutes later, he called me again and told me that the funeral has been rescheduled to Saturday. So I get my money a little later, but that's OK.

After hearing about the rescheduling, I decided to go online to see whether or not school was going to be in session. I honestly thought it would be, but to my surprise, they said it would be closed again. What's a girl to do? I think I'm starting to get a little cabin fever. Work was cancelled today, so was school. And now, school's cancelled tomorrow, and I have yet to see about work. Meh. I'm sure I'll find something to do to keep me occupied. Perhaps I'll have to re-watch my "educational" video. >:-D

I was *thinking* of going out tonight, but it wasn't meant to be. When I stepped outside to let the dog out, I noticed how slippery the walkway was, and knew that the roads would be much worse, so that kinda sealed the deal. I'll probably sleep in tomorrow, and we'll wait and see if things don't clear up so that maybe I'll be able to go to work and actually make some money. *sigh*

I shouldn't write too much, because I won't have anything to write about tomorrow morning when I'm stuck here at the house all day. :-P At any rate, at least I'm safe here at the house and not careening off a cliff trying to go to school, work, or the bars. Hahahah!

You kids be nice and behave, so you don't turn out like me! :)

Good to see you're still around...

Sorry about the snow days. Here is just been chilly as crazy so I just stay at home even though also I keep getting more calls than I normally get. *shrugs shoulders*

It's also good to see you still keep up-to-date. (I've been out of touch with Oasis so it's good to see a familiar name).

Keep writing.

Well, I'll be!

Gracious, I think it's been a couple years since I've seen your name around, hon. I just recently (VERY recently) got back into the Oasis gig--things just got really busy, and plus I haven't had internet at home for a while. But for the time being, I'll be doing regular updates and the like.

Hope things are going well for you. It's nice to see you around again. Keep in touch; we'll do E-Coffee or something. :)
