Well, today we enjoying our fourth official Snow Day so far this winter. The Polar Vortex, or whatever it is called, has once again put us in subzero temperatures. My husband’s construction site is essentially closed down due to the frigid temps, so he is home with us today. He sure doesn’t know how to have a Snow Day.
Snow Days are turning off alarm clocks and sleeping in. Late breakfasts and coffee sipped in the bright morning light. Snow Days are pajamas and sweatshirts. Messy hair and warm socks. Snow Days are movies and cartoons. Board games and books. Snow days are ring around the rosy and the itsy bitsy spider. Giggles and hugs. Snow Days are late lunches and long naps. Comfort food and crock pot cooking.
Snow Days certainly aren’t early rising and getting dressed. Not emails and conference calls. Snow Days are definitely not checklists and things to do. Fixing broken toilets and shoveling snow. Snow Days aren’t for catching up and trying to get ahead. Planning and organizing. Snow Days are not work time or getting-things-done-time.
The world stands still, and we are frozen in our homes. It is time to pause… to wait for the world to warm up.
Somebody should tell my husband.
