It's Raining Rocks!
Well, I am off work today, but not really. I had to get up and get my children dressed and off to school this morning. I had such wonderful plans of coming back home and going back to bed to sleep until noon. Unfortunately, we stepped outside to get into the car, and Forrest hollored at me, "MOM, IT'S RAINING ROCKS!" Yes, it was sleeting. And it was already starting to cover the sidewalk. I put the kids in the car and drive them to school. Deposit them with those fine well trained babysitters, and come back home. I set the alarm clock for 10 am (I know it's not noon, but....) I can't sleep. What if they call off school? I can't be asleep and not know if school is cancelled. The boys can't walk home in the cold wet wintery mix that we always tend to get here. It has been so long since I have seen just a nice wet snowfall. We always either get freezing rain or sleet and then a dusting of snow to top it off. I want to make a freakin snowman this year people. A big snowman. One like I used to make when I was a kid. The boys and I got to make a snowman once. It was about two years ago. But anyway, back to the situation at hand. I am unable to sleep and lounge due to fear of school closings. And if school closes, then I will have to reschedual the art craft I have planned for their classes today. But I suppose there is one bright spot amongst all of this drab... At least I'm not trapped in that 7th level of HELL, I call Work!!! At least that is what it has felt like this week. Every one have a safe and happy day, and watch out for the falling rocks, one might just get into your eye.
