Snow Day...

In general, I hate snow days. The kids are restless, sniping at one another and I'm stir crazy and overstimulated. Today was no exception. Now, however, one child is gone spending the night with a friend, the girls are off to bed and Landen (who, BTW, got his braces yesterday) has two friends over spending the night and they are keeping each other occupied. So...as long as the girls STAY in bed...knock on wood...we may have a quiet evening zoning out in front of the television. Of course the odds of the girls staying in bed rank right up there with the Giants odds of winning the Super Bowl and me ever giving birth again. In fact, as I type I can hear my oldest daughter throwing an incredibly innovative and creative tantrum for her father. Funny...just an hour ago she looked so angelic holding little Sam...



I have to say there were about fifteen minutes when Isaac went to play at a friends, the teenager (aka Landen) was still asleep in bed and the girls went out to play in the snow where it was quiet. But, like I said...it was fifteen minutes.

I'm still at the stage where I don't mind snow days because it means I don't have to ferry the kids everywhere...but I am sort of a homebody...plus in Seattle, we get about 1.2 snow days per year.

BTW, I love your Bush countdown! If only I were brave enough to have one on my blog, but too many of our congregation read my blog...so I'll "come out" here - Obama '08!!!!

theologymom,
Good to see you here! I only wish there were a candidate out there that was socially progressive and pro-life. Seems really wrong that there isn't, doesn't it?

Yeah, its like Jim Wallis from Sojourner's Magazine says...there isn't a "perfect" candidate for me, a progressive, emergent evangelical, whatever that is...also, there is no one who is pro-life across the board - I guess once someone commits a crime, they are beyond redemption? (As you can tell, I have issues with the death penalty)

Barak has inspired me more than anyone in a long time...so I'm picking the lesser of all the evils...he seems the most "real" to me, I could be wrong, but I'm will to chance it, and after Bush, I've vowed to not vote Republican at least until God heals my memory of the last 8 years! :)

When I was a teacher, I loved snow days, as a mom, not so much!!
