Today has been interesting. Anyone living north of Florida or Texas is most likely getting pounded from the first winter storm of 2010, and the excitement parents feel when Christmas vacation ends has been dampened by the extension of Christmas vacation by at least a day.
Here in the mountains of Pennsylvania, we've received almost two feet of snow--global warming my (_|_)--with more on the way. The bad part is that the cherubs at my house can't go out to play in it. Bone-chilling temps have made that much too dangerous.
Today has been spent refereeing fights and arguments between the two younger kids on my only day off until Thursday. Needing to go to the grocery store, I'm forced to make them French toast for supper because travel to the store would be hazardous. Thank Heaven I had the foresight to stop and get cigs on my way home from work last night.
To all of you who are in the same or worse position than I, I feel your pain. Now I understand Jack Nicholson's character in The Shining (minus the axe of course).
I'm praying that the storm will soon be over. Family togetherness is getting to all of us.
