Stilettos and Diapers: Snow Your Roll

Snow Your Roll

Here I am, writing this on snow day #8 in the past 2 weeks. I mean, we did get some decent snow, but the temps are now in the 40s and today they called school off for "frozen fog". What does that even mean?!

Having lived in New York for 4 years and the fact that the hubs was born and raised there, makes me know the northerners are laughing hysterically at us. It is different here, simply because we aren't equipped at all. There was still thick ice on our roads 2 days after the ice storm last week, because the roads aren't treated and the "plows" we have were getting stuck. Yeah, not that helpful. I bet it was pretty comical to see me try to pull the hubs car up our driveway. All I wanted was to go to lunch with a friend! After 3 failed attempts, the hubs took over, driving all over the grass and making it to the street. 

So what has the past 2 weeks looked like around here? 

8 snow days
7 days with bored kids
6 episodes of Kirby Buckets watched
5 northern friends texting to see if we're alive
4 dance parties
3 cups of hot cocoa, per person
2 days with actually falling snow
1 snowman built

Last week, we had a day of sledding in ice. It was thick, but a blast to fly down the street on. Then yesterday, we had a good dumping of snow, which was beautiful!  Here's our backyard.

Breakfast in (my) bed. Which means, no, I didn't get any for myself.

Callan didn't understand that I did not want to get pelted with a snowball every time I tried to take his picture. It may have made for wet pants for me, but a cute picture was worth it.

Did you get any snow where you live? And were your kids out of school for an unreasonable amount of time?! 

Happy Friday everyone!

  1. OMG! I just moved to Mississippi, from SC and I can identify with your post. I have teenagers, and they were driving me INSANE!!! Today, finally, they went to school. I am tired of the cold, ice and snow...I am ready for summer...forget about Spring! Now, we are supposed to have a weekend full of rain and thunderstorms. As a mom I get frustrated, kids are happy because they do not go to school, little do they know they will have to make up all those winter days!!! Stay warm!!!

  2. After living the past decade in SD, I will never go back to FL. Yeah, the winters here are a little rough, but as we like to say around here, "it's barely freezing!' :0) The spring and fall are awesome and summer is glorious, so it kinda makes winter worth it. I get a lot of reading and craft making in during those cold months. Stay warm and drink lots of hot chocolate. The snowman was awesome! Good job to your boys!
