7 years, 2 months.
It’s now been a week since you’ve been to school. This is like Christmas vacation again, but with snow… and without all the presents.
A week ago we were informed that your school was going to be closed due to the chance of a blizzard the next day on Friday. Knowing you were also going to be off from school the following Monday for Martin Luther King Day, I mentioned to Mommy at dinner:
“Let me throw a crazy idea at you…”
She stopped me, as she had instantly read my mind:
I took you and your sister to Alabama so we could stay at Nonna and Papa’s house for a 4 day weekend, while Mommy stayed back in Tennessee to get caught up on work.
You and your sister got plenty of quality time with your grandparents; meanwhile, I got a little bit more caught up on one of my most coveted commodities: Sleep!
It was so rewarding to just head upstairs and sleep for 2 or 3 hours, knowing you and your sister were being taken care of.
And it turns out, it didn’t actually snow while we were gone.
But sure enough, on Tuesday, when you were supposed to go back to school, that’s when the mini blizzard actually arrived.
Our family has been snowed since then.
Hopefully, the roads will be cleared up enough for you to return to school tomorrow, which is Friday. At that point, it will have been a solid week without you going to school. Even then, you will just be there for one day and then it’s the weekend again.
You and I did get a couple chances to enjoy the snow outside, while Mommy stayed inside with your sister. But even then, the temperature has remained around 9 degrees most of this week, so we couldn’t stay outside all that long.
What an interesting week.
