Notes from January 47th

I am beginning to think the children will never go to school again.

Everything is closed for a snow day today, and it looks like it may be too cold to go to school tomorrow through Friday morning.  So, that's awesome.

Also!  We had no school for MLK day on Monday last week, a snow day on Wednesday, and then teacher development on Friday.  ARGH.

Today, though, Ben had to start his new job (even though his old college is TOTALLY CLOSED) so it's just me and the kids.  I AM SO BLESSED. 

Actually, I like nothing more than a good Netflix and PJ day, but I have a bunch of work to do, and as I believe we have discussed before, the kids will not leave me alone to do ANYTHING EVER.  So there's that.

Oh!  And! One more sightly complicating factor about our snow day-- it's not WARM AND SUNNY like it was last week, so I won't even really be able to send the kids out of the house.  Maybe once to shovel-- I mean, we will have to go outside once to shovel because after the plows come, we will for sure be stuck in our driveway and when Ben finally comes home (I already cannot wait) he will not be able to actually, you know, come home unless we move the giant wall of snow.  But other than that, the kids (and the dog) are going to go insane.  I am planning a mandatory dance party, some group yoga, and Harry running on the elliptical until he lacks the energy to talk back (kidding-- that will literally never happen-- maybe he should do  quick marathon or something).  Maybe later this week we can get out for an indoor play place or even an open swim at a heated pool? 

But in the meantime, look how awesome last week's snow day was, back when the kids had two academic parents:











Don't feel too sorry for me.  I have cable, a hotspot on my phone just in case the wifi goes out, macaroni and cheese, pound cake, and all the stuff to make fudge.  Plus a new season of Kimmy Schmidt.

Ahhh! All the snow pics and cozy plans *almost* make me miss winter. I think the elliptical is a great idea for Harry, btw. Maybe that's the next million dollar idea!?
