1st Snow of the Season
I was really hoping the kids would get a day off, but sadly all they got was a 2 hour delay. It really derailed my morning because I lost all focus. I slept in till 7am, then sat for 40 minutes drinking coffee and reading news. I then wandered upstairs and reorganized Violette's clothing bin so we could find her school clothes, got two girls dressed for school and by this time the youngest was pushing quit urgently to go outside and play in the snow. I pushed back more insistently that she must eat breakfast first, get her hair done, then go outside and that took until 9am. I don't know how it took that long, I spent time in the basement looking for boots, then again for gloves which I thought had already been placed into the snowsuit bin. In between jumping up to look for things I ate bites of butternut squash bread. By 9:15 three girls had made it outside, I still hadn't finished breakfast or made lunches! I was exhausted, still hadn't showered, and it's a work day! See this is why I wanted a "snow day" and not a delay because the delay just delays the kids leaving for school and letting me get on with my day! At least they had fun making snowmen and various other things.
