Winter update

Since we have family and friends enjoying warm sunshine in parts of the country, I thought I'd keep going with the winter updates. Everyone knows how much I love snow and being cold so my cynicism should be pure entertainment. It didn't snow last night but everything froze into ice slicks on the roads. The school districts that our home is surrounded by are 2 hours late due to ice. However, my school district is on time today. Needless to say, I can't get off my hill to get to work on time. Well, I probably COULD get to work but the truck doesn't have 4wd, I drive like a sissy in this weather, I'm convinced I'm going to slide into a ditch or hit a kid waiting for a bus, so why bother? Eric COULD take me in his 1968 Land Cruiser (death trap) but I'd have to sit in the back with no seat belt, worry about someone sliding into us and then the two of them on the drive home, and then spend my day freezing in a cold gym because the heating system broke over the weekend so only cold air blows. Again, why bother?

I've sent in my sub plans. I've started my coffee. I hear Alexander playing and giggling in his room. Eric is sound asleep and the sun is starting to come up over snow covered houses and trees. Do I really need to go into work when I have all this around me?

I'm contemplating making french toast for breakfast.

Mmmmm....if I could, I'd be right over for breakfast. :) But I've got a buttload of snow/ice too.

On time? Seriously?!? I've been playing taxi for two days because the snow and ice pick up for the buses is half mile away! Not making them walk that far in this cold! I think that french toast is an awesome idea.
