My Snow Day!


This is the third day in a row that they have canceled school. This time, it's due to the extreme temperatures - our wind chill is supposed to reach -35 degrees. That's dangerous. So all over town, the kidlets are home yet again with exhausted and stir-crazy parents!

For me, I couldn't justify bringing my own kidlet to work with me again. The poor girl deserves a snow day. And darn it, so do I.

So here I am. I'm planning to relax today, to read in front of the fireplace and maybe do a bit of writing. Maybe I'll take a nap, drink a cup of hot cocoa, or even throw together a batch of sugar cookies (though I really shouldn't since I haven't been able to get to the gym this week, either!).

Yes, I'm sacrificing a vacation day, but for my daughter to have a "proper" snow day, it's completely worth it. :-)

  3. I'm so jealous! I want hot cocoa, writing time, a good book and a nap. That sounds divine and way, waaay better than staring at the 4 walls of my pod watching the clock. Enjoy!!
