It's a Snow Day! (well, ice day)

Snow days have to be one of the most delightful experiences in life. A day in which you wake up, expecting to have to do work, follow the regular routine of life, and then all of the sudden are handed the gift of 9 (well in my case, closer to 10) hours that are suddenly yours to do with as you want....what else can be more delightful?

Chris had received the call last night that he didn't have to go in, and so when I woke up this morning and looked out the window at the layer of snow/ice on the ground, I was praying and praying and praying that my work would also be cancelled (because if I had to go and he didn't, I would be bitter). And it was!

One of the rules of a snow day is that unless you want to, you don't have to work. It's not a day that because you're suddenly home you need to fill it by doing a job or project that you've been putting off. You can if you want to (you know, if you're like me and actually enjoy cleaning out closets), but you don't have to.

Don't argue with me about this; it's the rule. I didn't write it; i just follow it!

And so I've been relishing the precious hours of my snow day. Got some work done - because I wanted to - but been very lazy for much of it.

Hope you're having a good snow day (if you got one).

Snow days are definately lazy days. The best part is when you know you should be at work, but instead are in your pajamas, staying toasty warm with cocoa and the Gilmore Girls. What, thats not what everyone does on a snow day???

Hey, I definitely like to snuggle with those Gilmore Girls on snow days.
