Tonight the automated message from my kid's school district called to say that tomorrow is a snow day. Hey no fun! They are taking all the fun of lying awake in the wee hours of the morning waiting for that phone to ring. Remember the phone chain? There were always those few people that would break the chain and call all their friends first then inevitably you would wind up getting three or four phone calls instead of one or worse .....not get a phone call at all! A woman I worked with ( at a Pre-school for Children with special needs) got her call then went right back to sleep prompting all the people after her on the chain to trudge in through a snow storm only to find the school closed. Needless to say she was not very popular after that. My kids are already planning their day out on the "hill" where all the neighborhood kids go to try out their sleds and inner-tubes. It takes forever to climb up (feels like ten minutes?) and just seconds to zoom down, but what a rush! Oh heck I may take a couple of turns too. Isn't that what you're supposed to do on a snow day? Fling yourself off a mountain and scream with delight as you go careening toward the bottom? I just hope I have extra strength advil on hand 'cause I'm gonna need it. Wanna join us? I'll see you at the top!!!!! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
