Today the phone rang at 6AM. Ohhh...who could be calling before my alarm...how rude! We didn't catch the main phone but within a few seconds my husband's cell began to ring. Then my cell began to ring. What was this conspiracy to wake me up eary? When I answered my cell I quickly found out the school was testing a new automated information system. Due to the high winds with corresponding low wind chills and white-out conditions, school was cancelled. Wow! A real snow day. No work for me...hurray! Laying around doing nothing...I really could have done a ton today but I sat and watched Little House on the Prairy all day. :) So here I am at almost 5 pm and the natives are growing restless. Crying and fighting and whining. The wind is blowing and the snow is building a giant drift across our road and driveway. It is too cold for the kids to play outside. I think this snow day thing is overrated! :) I think a family movie complete with popcorn will be in order tonight. I will enjoy the routine tomorrow of getting the kids out the door to school and then heading out to work.
