Home, Sweet... SNOW?!

So, I'm back in South Carolina, all settled in. We had a few days of carpentry when I got back to work, because we're trying to make a set tour-able. I actually had a lot of fun with it. I miss working in a shop. Then we had an orientation on Sunday, and today we actually had a snow day! The university is closed tomorrow, too. I think we only got 3 or 4 inches, but to SC that's enough to close down the state for two days. In PA, that might have warranted a delay, if anything. It is a bad time for storms, though, with classes starting Wednesday and everyone heading back. I hope everyone is traveling safely!

I've gotten everything unpacked and pretty much put away, finally. I came back with an entire shelving unit of new kitchen things, along with 12 new cookbooks. I swear, after my internship, I'm just going to stay here and sell baked goods off my front porch. My new vacuum is awesome, and I love my Wii storage tower. I have to hook up my wireless printer yet. That might be a job for tomorrow's snow day! Suffice to say, I brought back way too much stuff!

When I came back, I brought a companion. One of the second grade classes at my mom's school read the book Flat Stanley, and the students made flat versions of themselves to send out to various parts of the country, so I volunteered to bring one with me. So Flat Kylie and I made the trip back together. I got pictures of her at the Maryland, West Virgina, Virginia, and North Carolina state lines. I have to send her back in a week, so I'm hoping to get to Georgia or Tennessee yet. I'm thinking I'm going to check out the Nacoochee Village in Georgia or head to Knoxville, TN and poke around. At least this gives me an excuse to go exploring!

Well, I guess I'll head to bed. I'm fairly certain I don't have to work tomorrow, but I don't want to go to bed at 5AM and get a call that I have to go in!
