Let it snow!
I've been wanting to post since New Year's Day, but haven't been in the right frame of mind to do so. I'm not really sure that I am in the "right" frame of mind right now, but the kids are off school today because of snow ... maybe the cold too. Who knows? I do not understand the criteria the administrators use to determine a delay or a closing. Ugh!
I've been up since 5:10 am perusing the "school closing" listings. I didn't see either of my boys' schools. Then, I went back to bed to try to sleep until 6 am when I get up to say good-bye to Austin. As I laid my head on the pillow, my cell phone vibrated with a message there was a 2-hour delay. Oooookay. I got up again to turn off the alarm clocks so the boys could sleep in. Their 2-hour delay means that I get to sleep in a bit longer as well. Who was I kidding? Phone buzzes again. Friends making sure I was aware of the delays. Phone rings! Principal from my son's middle school telling us there is a delay. I decide to get up ... who needs sleep?
I proceeded to hop on the schools' websites again. There is a cancellation for one, but not the other. I need coffee! As I am making my coffee, cell phone buzzes again. School cancelled for my oldest as well. Phew!
Will it be a day of making cookies, playing in the snow, and making scrumptious mugs of hot cocoa filled with fluffy, white marshmallows? Only time will tell. Secretly, I'm hoping to get a bit of crafting done today. Personal Scrapper is having an online crop. I need to let the creative juices flow!!
