An Extra Sunday

The only thing people are talking about around these parts is the weather. We are in the Midwest where not only did we get 12+ inches of snow dumped on us yesterday, we are also experiencing below 0 temperatures.

The girls have been out of school for, well two full weeks and a day as of today. School was supposed to start back up last Thursday but snow stopped that. The cold, blowing winds are causing drifts that will probably close school again tomorrow.

They're very much enjoying their extended Christmas vacation. I should probably call it their winter vacation now that Christmas is over.

As unusual as it is, my work closed today due the weather too. Yay for all of us.

The best part is that we knew this going bed last night, which means I could NOT set my alarm and just sleep in.

When Olivia woke me up at 7:00 this morning she gave a little whispered, "Whoohoo! We don't have to go to school or work."

I smiled sleepily and said, "That's right, you and me and Daddy and Lyssie just get to stay home together."

She said, "It's like an extra Sunday."

I like that. An extra Sunday to just be together.

Let it snow, let it blow. We're blessed to be warm, have plenty of food. We've enjoyed sitting at the front window, watching the drifts form. Maybe we'll get to do it all again tomorrow.
