The Real Snow Day (Sorta)

Well, today we really got our snow day, if that's what you want to call it.  We were out of school, there just wasn't a whole lot of snow.  But, I enjoyed it just the same.  I love the surprise of not having to go to work in the middle of the week.  We didn't have anything that was picture worthy, but I was giddy over the idea of having a short work week.

Hubby and I stayed home all day and we kept our pj's on the whole day.  Even though we were home, we didn't sit around all day eating bon-bons and watching soaps.  We actually got a lot accomplished.  There were several little things that we had not taken care of so it was nice to have a chance to get them done.  We decided to get up and do those not-so-fun things so we could spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing.

I will feel good about going back to work tomorrow knowing the house is clean and straightened.  The big bonus is I won't have to cook for a while either.  With the food we already have in the fridge and the curry chicken I made to day, I'm good to go.  I find it so refreshing that I have started finding joy and happiness in the small things.  This change in routine has really been a pick-me-up.  I'm sure watching some TV and getting a chance to read a book and some magazines didn't hurt, either.

Today was definitely a perk of being a teacher.  I got a day off and didn't have to worry about not being there.  I love snow days!
