A Perfect Snow Day

My alarm jerks me out of sleep.

Then the phone rings, the voice on the other line says “Due to the weather, there is going to be no school for ___ School District.”

Since I’m now awake, I curl up on the couch under my comforter.  I either read a book, play on my phone, or try to catch up on my sleep.

After a few hours, I’ll finally get up for the day.  When I look outside, I’ll be grateful I don’t have to go anywhere.

I’ll then grab my DSL-R camera so I can take some photos of the beautiful snow.  I’ll either take photos from the front or back door so I do not have to get out of my pajama pants.

Or if I feel up to it, I’ll get dressed in jeans and a sweatshirt.

 Okay let’s be honest, I won’t get out of my pajamas all day.  

I’ll put on the coat and boots on over my pajamas so I can head outside to enjoy the silence of the snow falling and get photos of untouched snow.

 When I get back inside, the Wee One and the Imaginative One will be up for the day.
Usually the Imaginative One does not want to go outside, however the Wee One will eventually want to go outside. 

He’s going to spend an half and hour playing hide and seek game with our hats, gloves, and boots so he can head outside for five minutes of fun.

During his five minutes of fun, he throws snowballs at the house or trudges through the snow.  Maybe he will sort of clean off my car.

This is the Imaginative One a few years ago

Once he is inside, he will drag snow throughout the house.  Winter gear will be thrown throughout the living room, kitchen, and the hallway.

Hubby and I will repeatedly remind him to clean up the wet floors.

The boys will retreat to one of their bedrooms to play on their tablets.  Or they might play on the computer.  As long as their cabin fever does not cause them to become hyper or fight, I don’t mind them on the electronics.

Since I’m home, I may make a special lunch or dinner.

The rest of the day is rinse and repeat until it’s bedtime.

If there is another snow day the next day, we might go crazy in the house.  One snow day allows the teachers to recharge our batteries.  Two or more snow days causes cabin fever.

(Just so you know:   No schoolwork will be touched during my perfect snow day.)

Have a magical day,
Traci
