We're on day five of this Winter storm, and I have a love/hate relationship with it. Ok, those are some strong words...I like it and I don't. The family time we've had is amazing and we've accomplished a few little organization projects, but staying home is just not one of my strong suits. I am ready to get back into our routine and caught up again at work.
Nonetheless, I have greatly enjoyed my time with the kiddos and Eric. Yesterday morning, we were both off of work for MLK Day, so we cleaned out some closets and decided to bust out of the house and make a run to town before another round of snow came through. After dropping some stuff at Goodwill, we went to Sam's and Kroger's for a few things, which was good because, oh my goodness ya'll, round two was a bit more than we bargained four.
We woke up to about five inches of snow instead of the "dusting" they called for. Ellie was kinda snotty last night and we were worried she was getting sick, so we went ahead and kept her home today just to be safe. She's fine now, so we're thinking that it was just a runny nose from being outside sledding.
We opted to stay inside today so that we wouldn't risk anyone getting sick in these cold temperatures. I got a ton of work done so that hopefully tomorrow will be easier when I get back into the office. We rounded out the snow day fun with dinner, hot chocolate and a civil game of Yahtzee.
The driveway is cleared, the car is turned around and facing the road, we've secured a spot at daycare and Momma is ready to get back to work. But we're keeping our fingers crossed that we can fit in one more night of sledding when we call get back home.
