Let’s just say I (like many…many others) have had my fill of this Polar Vortex, Snowmageddon, SnoMG…All of the Above! I. Am. Done.
When we moved from New York City to the South I thought I was leaving my snow days behind me. Well this little Winter Weather episode certainly did prove me wrong. Not only did we have A Snow Day we had almost 14 of them! As of this week my Kiddies have been to school maybe 2 whole days in a row. Before this it was delays, early releases and closings.
Now don’t get me wrong, I understand why they call delays and closings at the very thought (ok I get the logic but it is still a bit funny to me) of severe, hazardous or inclement weather. I do. The buses have to drive, the school needs to heat, etc.
Still, having 4 Kiddies in-house for over 3 days…No Words. There are truly only so many activities you can find before their boredom and your sanity start to overtake each other. Where you want to close your door and hide when you hear them screaming (at the top of their lungs) that there is “Nothing To Do!”
So, I would like to request Spring to make an appearance fast and in a hurry. Luckily today I am seeing glimpses of it. We have sunny skies and the chill has left the air. I can release the Kiddies to the yard and not worry about their noses getting frost bitten. I can sit on my porch and not worry about being blown away. Please let things days stay so that I can let go of my Winter Woes and see my Spring Dreams become a well welcomed reality.
How did you survive the Woes of Winter?
What activities or distractions did you use to keep your Kiddies calm and your nerves still?
What are you dreaming of doing once Spring arrives?
