Snow Fever

Day One:

9 a.m. – We’re excited about the snow. Plans include eating snow cream, sitting on the couch, and cartoons.

9:30 a.m. – MoonPie wants to play Barbies. I guess I can take a break from doing nothing.

11:00 am. – We’ve eaten everything in the house. Must send JD out for food.

1:00 p.m. – MoonPie is sledding. At last a moment to work.

1:10 p.m. – MoonPie is frozen and about to die. Her feet are falling off and she might not make it.

2:00 p.m. – Barbies? Again? Well, okay.

6:00 p.m. – Is it time for bed yet? Check the clock again.

9:00 p.m. – Barbies one more time before bed?  I. Cant. Wait.

Day Two –

9:00 a.m. – No, I can’t play Barbies. It’s against the law to play Barbies before consuming coffee.

10:00 a.m. – Send emergency beacon to friend. Assure her the roads are perfectly FINE.

10:30 a.m. – Send JD out for MoonPie’s friend. He will be fine. Just get her and get back SOON.

1:00 p.m. Children complain it’s cold outside. Children complain my hot chocolate is bad. Children complain my TV show is not what they want to watch. I’m not playing Barbies. It’s heaven.

5:30 p.m. JD says he must take friend home before dark. Send MoonPie too. They’ll be fine. The roads are almost passable.

8:30 p.m. Play Barbies again. Realize they are trying to kill me. Remove their heads from their bodies to prevent their snide comments. They are still LOOKING at me.

Day Three

7:00 a.m. – Have JD call my brother. Surely his child can come and play. For all that is HOLY, I can’t play Barbies again.

3:00 p.m. See the news that school is out again tomorrow.

3:01 p.m. Send email explaining that RimFire is BEGGING and CRYING to spend the night.

3:09 p.m. Receive email saying RimFire can stay.

4:00 p.m. Tell RimFire the roads are impassable and she must spend the night.

9:00 p.m. Go to bed. Realize you don’t feel guilty at all. It was not your fault anyway.

  1. This snow and ice has been incredible!
    The roads are so bad, they even closed the bridge clubs.
    Whoever heard of such a thing? Closing the bridge clubs ???
    I think there is some sort of a law against that. Or should be!
