Snow/Ice Day #4

So we have been home ALL week. The ice just did not want to let up and our school district is out this Friday and Monday of next week. This makes 10 days in a row out of school! My girls really wished they could have gone back. I think they were losing it by day 2. Thankfully the sun is shining and I suspect I will be hearing a non-stop dripping for most of the day. We plan to get out and do a little bargain shopping and get some fresh air. I don't mind being home most days but when you are confined and can't go anywhere then I get crazy. The part that makes no sense to me is how come I can't seem to get anything done? I do my usual everyday cooking and cleaning, but I really have not been utilizing my free time very well. I am not normally a big TV watcher but that seems to be all I have been doing. I have enjoyed sleeping in a little later though. I guess we will be back to business next Tuesday. The girls will be taking their mid-term/final exams that were originally scheduled for this week. They have been studying together so I feel they should do even better. Poor girls, they miss school and their friends. We will make the most out of the next 5 days.

Has anyone been stuck inside because of the winter weather? How are you holding up?

  1. 10 days out of school?!! My goodness! I can certainly see why everyone is getting antsy. Also, what a bummer that (I think I recall you saying) the girls will have to make up these days at the end.

    We have been stuck inside before, but only for 2 days at the most!

  2. I'm happy to say that here in the Charleston area it really doesn't snow. We'll get a dusting occasionally, but even that's too few and far between.

    I moved here because I got sick and tired of shoveling snow in New Jersey.


Thanks for stopping by today
