Snow Days Suck

It could be that having woken up before 6 a.m. for the third day in a row is just starting to wear on me, but when I saw the little note scrolling on the bottom of the TV screen this morning saying that our school was CLOSED for the day, part of me was so overwhelmingly ticked off! The Princess doesn’t have school every day – just two days per week and every other Friday. Given the schedule, she only has one Friday school day in January… so, that’s eight days of school for the month. Make that seven, now.

Seven days of school… Really?

Admittedly, Tuesdays and Thursdays are my crunch days. I count on having that time to bond with Pumpkin, to get a lot of work done, to get more done around the house, and to take full advantage of nap time (not always feasible on non-schooldays, because The Princess doesn’t nap anymore). To add to that, the excitement of having big sister home often cuts that nap pretty short, IF Pumpkin is able to fall asleep at all. Seeing as how she’s been up since 5:15 this morning – a nap is REALLY crucial.

Fortunately, The Princess had a friend over this morning who in turn invited her over post-lunch. Pumpkin went down for a nap without a fuss. I sweated my butt off to a Cardio Jam workout DVD, on top of vacuuming, sweeping AND doing six loads of laundry!

Today could have been pretty ugly, but fortunately, it’s been alright. If I wasn’t so exhausted, it’d be even better.
