Just when I thought I may have overextended myself in an extracurricular sense, Old Man Winter went and sent me two snow days! Monday at work I made myself a "to do" list so I could at least FEEL like I had a handle on things – and without including either my actual job or my parenting responsibilities, it was still a little intimidating.
I have several projects going right now – which is exciting, honestly. And fun. But this week was looking a little over the top until the snow arrived and forced a big, much-needed slooooooooooow doooooooooooooown.
Sure, the snow is a bit of an inconvenience. And it meant I had to work from home for a few days. And it meant no Sonic for 48 whole hours. And the mere mention of it sent all the crazies in a 50 mile radius to the store Monday night to loot the shelves of every last egg, loaf of bread and carton of milk in sight.
But it also meant some good old fashioned down time. Veg on the couch in sweats – time. Stand at the window and watch the snow – time. Take a walk with my two favorite boys – time.
And THAT'S what this girl needed.
As I snapped that last one I couldn't help but remember this little beauty from the summer.
