Once upon a time, I woke up at a decent hour and got kids ready for school.
Once upon a time, four of my kids happily marched off to school and I was left at home with my youngest.
Once upon a time, I ran errands at the store, took AJ to the Resource Center, and met friends for preschool.
Once upon a time, mail was delivered to our mail box. Garbage was picked up on garbage day. Once upon a time.
Once upon a time, my husband went to work in the morning and came home at night.
Once upon a time, I had a car, I had a schedule, and I had a life.
Now I have snow.
Snow and more snow.
If you didn’t think the last few days’ pictures were bad enough, look at what I caught today. Not only did we have another foot of snow, but we had wind.
Amazingly, we maintained our power.
Even more amazingly, we have maintained our sanity.
Um….most of us, at least.
My new reality is sleeping in and lounging around in sweatshirts and no make up. School? What school? My world is my little house, my family, and my computer.
I’m afraid I won’t know how to handle myself once we can leave the house to do anything other than shovel snow again.
In happier news, we have discovered that even though the snow plows, postal service, garbage collectors, and city buses can’t make it to our street during a blizzard, the Tooth Fairy still can!
Reese lost both of her front teeth this week. And despite the note she left for the Tooth Fairy after the second tooth fell out (“Tooth Fairy, Please leave me $7.”) she still got a few quarters and a dime. The Tooth Fairy might have trusty transportation, but she’s still cheap around here. I just started a discussion in my Forum about what a typical Tooth Fairy pays these days.
