So unfortunately, being snowed-in and trying to grow out your nails don’t go well together. Ugh!
But I’m right back at it. I’ll just be 4 weeks behind where I would have been. Yup, that’s right, I made it 4 weeks. Yay Me!
We had a crazy snowy weekend. And as much as I love the coziness of the snow falling and the wood stove crackling, and knowing we don’t have to be anywhere, it was really nice to get out yesterday for coffee–one of our favorite Sunday afternoon “things”. I’d been stuck at home since Friday afternoon.
D. had friend over for a sleepover on Friday. He and his family just moved to Canada in the summer from England. He told us that where he came from, when they had a lot of snow, you could still see the grass. You can imagine this little guy’s excitement with the huge snow-fall that we got through the night on Friday. I woke up at 5:30 Saturday morning, to hear “Please ask your Mom if we can go out now!”. Yup, you heard that right–5:30!!!!! I made them wait until around 9:00 when at least the wind had died down a bit. He was so excited-I can’t even begin to describe the great big smile on his face. Pure bliss! I think that seeing the snow through his eyes made me mind it a little less. And also made me not mind the piles of soaked clothes, and melting snow all over the floor that I dealt with all. day. Saturday! 🙂
Today M and I have been putting out some Christmas decorations. With the Christmas music just blasting, and us belting it out. We’re trying to listen to every CD before the boys get home from school. We may make it!
