I think I'm as excited as the kids are. Buddy is dying in anticipation about a gift he has no clue what it is. Sissy is at an age where she understands the whole concept of Christmas and Santa, etc.
The Evil Twin's last day at work until after the New Year was Friday. Buddy's last day of school is tomorrow, but in a weird twist, school was canceled today due to bad weather.
On Friday evening, the snow started - and it kept coming. By Saturday morning, we had 6 or 7 inches. Luckily, we didn't have to get out and do anything so we just hung around the house. The Evil Twin built a fire. I had pinto beans in the crock pot for dinner and it was just a very relaxing day.
(The view out of our front window - I wasn't about to go outside! But the Evil Twin and the kids played in it later).
However, we did not get any mail on Saturday, which really ticked me off because I'm expecting pictures to put in Christmas cards. Actually, I thought I would probably get them Thursday or Friday, but no such luck. I've addressed the envelopes and I'll sign the cards today, so they'll be ready to go when I do get the pictures.
It kept snowing on Saturday. On Sunday, the Evil Twin and 2 of our other neighbors got out and cleared driveways and the small piece of road the snow plow couldn't get.
About midday on Sunday, I was alerted by the County that school was canceled for Monday. Now, I'm hoping that it will be canceled for tomorrow too, because that just seems stupid to make them go on that one lone day. Honestly, I thought it was stupid to have them scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.
According to Buddy, they are either ahead of schedule or all caught up in all subjects, so they spent most of Friday watching movies.
The roads are clear now and so we will go to the Mart of Wal and stock up for the week, but I'm sorta hoping for more snow later so we don't have to get Buddy to school Tuesday morning. Isn't that bad?
I mean, if it starts snowing midday on Tuesday, they'll call for an early dismissal anyway....Seems silly to risk it. I don't know. I guess we wait and see, that's all we can do.
I'm off for now. I hope you are all enjoying the Christmas season! :-)
