It's a Snow Day...Again

Our front yard, before the kids make their marks in the snow.

Another snow day in the ''s hoping that we can avoid going to school into June. Hubby wanted to take the kids sledding, but it's 9 degrees outside, with a wind chill well below zero. I think we'll all be huddled inside today.

Just brewed another pot of coffee as I work from home. The kids are enjoying the day off, lounging in their PJs and watching episodes of "Curious George" and "Martha Speaks," while every now and then spouting "Don't touch me!," "Mom, he kicked me!," or "Mom, she shoved me!" Ah, snow days.

I seriously need to book our beach vacation now, because if I don't have an actual date on the calendar with a visual in my head in which to retreat during moments like this, I may go ape-sh*! crazy.

Happy Friday, all!

P.S. - Remember when I made a plea to Trader Joe's last year to bring one of their stores to my neck of the woods? Well, looks like it's going to happen. Woo hoo!

I love trader Joe's! We also had snow last night! I always have to dig in the yard for some grass to show so Jake will go do his business!
Happy Friday to you too!

Hooray for Trader Joe's!! I am so excited for you! They have so many wonderful treats and are so reasonably priced! We went through no less than four boxes of peppermint jo-jo's over the holidays! :)

Hope you enjoy your cozy day inside today. Looking forward to hearing about where you make your summer vacation plans! I would give anything to feel the sun on my cheeks today with a cold adult beverage in hand!! xoxoxox

A snow day here as well. And we will likely go into June. Same thing happened to us last year. With a make up day on Saturday.

My Letters to Emily, wish I could take credit for bringing Trader Joe's to my town, but, hey, I will take credit! Yes, they did listen to me! Hoorah!

Chrischaos, yes, it's pretty much been a snow day here since the beginning of winter. It's not right, not right at all.

More snow?!?!?! I am so sorry. We may have a bit of wintery mix next week and NONE of us is excited. My boys are tired of snow - what little we get compared to our friends north of us!

Oh, and yippee for Trader Joes!!!
