You know the old saying that your mom told you when you were growing up…”If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
Yes, I realize this is true. However, I AM SO SICK OF THIS WEATHER!!!!!!!!!!!
I read some wholesome post on Facebook about how maybe God is trying to get our attention and remind us to slow down and enjoy time with our family and stay in our home together, soaking up family time. I get that many schedules are full and not many families spend a ton of time under the same roof all week. However, this is what we do almost every single day!!!! We stay home, do school, read books under blankets, bake cookies, play with our toys, and much more…all under the same roof. It’s nice to throw in a library trip or a grocery run. We really feel special when we eat out during the week day.
But this being iced-in business is just about to send me to the looney bin. And there is nothing I can do about it but wait for things to thaw out.
I have a horrible sore throat and need to see a doctor once the sun shines again.
My retainer is cracked, so I need to do see the dentist when the sun comes out.
My roots are horrid, and if I can’t make it to my hair appointment tomorrow evening, I’ll be very sad.
We still have some food to eat, but it won’t last forever.
Oh, I really shouldn’t complain, but since this my blog, I suppose that is up to me. Anyone can stop reading any time.
Here are some pictures of what we’ve been doing. I was productive enough to stain my dining room table, so at least that project is about done.
The girls were playing doctor. Mack has played Legos for hours upon hours. I’ve written cards to Sunday School folks, ironed many clothes, and of course, we’ve done our school work. We don’t really take snow days, but we will take a sun day when it decides to join us again.
So, there you have it. We are hanging on to our sanity by a thin strand around here. Make your judgements about me if you will, but it’s the truth. 😁
