Yay! I got my wish! The kids got their snow day today. They didn’t waste any time, either; they were out shoveling and frolicking in it before I ever even came out of the shower this morning. I don’t know whose idea it was to build a snow ramp for their sleds, but they talked about it all evening last night and I was having a hard time picturing what they were talking about. But build a ramp they did, and boy did it look like they were having fun!
So while there were plenty of snowballs and mugs of hot chocolate to go around, I was unfortunately stuck at the computer, working on the tail end of a long-term project for work. Some days I don’t love my job, but when that happens I know that in these times I have to keep up my mantra: “At least I’m lucky enough to have a job I don’t love.” I’m glad they got to go out and play today, though. We’ve been having such an unseasonably dry winter that we’ve had almost no snow at all. I don’t think the kids have had enough snow to play in for probably a couple of years now.
I did manage to sneak in a row or two on my Noro Kureyon blanket. So it wasn’t all bad. More on that tomorrow. For now, I think I’m gonna charge my iPod and head off to bed a bit early for a change.
