A Day for Celebration
I'm going to veer from the book path today because for the first time in almost 2 weeks my kids have gone back to school! Hooray! Yippee! Now don't get me wrong, I love my little monsters and we have a fun time together but cabin fever was starting to set in, big time. See, I live in Virginia and we were part of that back-to-back blizzard, or snowpocalypse as they were calling it, which meant leaving the house was like planning an expedition to hike Mt. Everest.
We did have a lot of fun, especially since this was our first ever winter- created an Olympic sled run in the front yard, baked mountains of cookies, watched numerous movies, read lots of books, colored, painted nails, hiked to the store a few times, etc. etc. All I can say is that it was time, way past time, to head back to school. I'm worn out and need a break. Maybe I should have my own snow days now?
Now I have this dilemma. Nothing serious but something to think about. Should I tackle the backlog of errands, clean like a woman possessed because nobody is home to mess it up, or kick up my heels and relax??
