Didn't get a lot of work yesterday.You see it was a snow day and my teens went nuts. Of course, it didn't help that I had teens show up on my porch at 8am bouncing in front of my window. A ten minute flurry later and my son and daughter were dressed and off, no doubt to go bounce on someone else's porch. They created a snowman so huge that motorists were stopping to look at it and take pictures. Will post a pix later. Thing was over ten feet tall and the base was as big a VW BUG!.

But because it was a snowday I had to bake oatmeal cookies and fix a huge thermos of hot chocolate. Son came up to change clothes and get goodies to take them back to teen contingent who all praised my name. Then I began simmering soup for dinner. Had name praised again when they all came back here to hang out and had hot soup. Then son spent the night with friends and daughter spent the night at friends and dh and I stayed home to do laundry.

In other words, I got nothing done yesterday.Today is another snowday, but they are at someone else's house. Let their mom or dad make cookies today!

You lucky dog! Not only are we snowed/iced in, but DS and I are both still sick, and DD is (as usual) bouncing off the walls, and oocasionally outside in the snow. And I am supposed to be working...

Betcha PPS will cancel tomorrow, also, due to ice. Grrrr.

Ice days here in TX. I haven't been out of the house since Saturday. You'd think I'd have a ton of writing done, but nope. Can't think of a single decent sentence.

Stay warm!

Isn't it amazing how a little snow makes all children, regardless of age, completely nuts? Mine were the same. And they were like that today even though they only had a 2 hr delay. Wired. Before and after school. It was nuts.

I love snow, but I'm ready for normal weather again just so life can get back to normal.
