Winter Storm Saturn has arrived here in Dickerson, Maryland, and my Varmint and Critter and I are enjoying the snow day, while My Captain is staged with the Collapse Rescue Team.
We all slept in,…well, we all had the potential to sleep in. When I crept downstairs at the tender hour of 8:00, I found both children, who fight getting up on any other school day, sitting in the family room of the little cottage eating Jolly Rancher popsicles, and watching DVDs of The Carol Burnett Show.
It’s like I’m back in 1978…
…only 50 pounds heavier, and sporting substantially more facial hair.
On the agenda for today we’ve got: baking homemade cinnamon rolls, making cookies, painting snow with spraybottles filled with food coloring and water, enormous quantities of sibling bickering, and at least three Mommy-meltdowns.
We LOVE snow days!!!
