First Official Snow Day

When I heard we were going to get some bad weather on Sunday night, I had a feeling that it would be enough to cancel classes for the day.

First, it was a 2 hour delay, which would mean Sissy would not have preschool, and which meant I could sleep a little bit longer. Fine with me.

Then, we got word that the County schools were closed for the day. Sissy slept until 8:45! And Buddy got up around 9:45! I asked him why he was up before noon. LOL. He said he wanted to make the most of his snow day.

I'm going to make the most of his snow day by having him help me put laundry away! Mwahahaha! Hey, he's old enough to pay his dues around here. Sissy might even want to get in on the action!

Yesterday evening, we had some plumbing excitement. Water was backing up in the basement and it turns out we have a blockage way down in the line (like think some where around the middle of the yard). The plumber was able to loosen it and then they'll be back with a camera to identify the exact location, dig and repair. For now, though, we CAN use the water.

It's always something right before the holidays. Usually, it's vehicle related, so I guess we were due for house related.

Oh well, stuff happens, huh? We just have to keep going....

I hope you're having a great Monday, hooligans - and, if you're snowed in like us, keeping warm!



  1. When I was a kid we would always get up early on snow days so we could enjoy them to the fullest too.

  2. Yay for snow days... of course I don't get them anymore {grumble}.....

  3. Snow days are the best. Sorry about the plumbing issue. It is true that things always happen around the holidays.

  4. I miss snow days! And how is it you have snow down there and it's been raining for two days here in Northern MA?
