Stir Crazy

Well we finally got some snow. It started late Friday night and continued most of Saturday in the form of sleet or snow. 6 inches to play in. But today is Monday, day three of the stuff, no school (which we have to make up on a Saturday!) and we're going stir crazy! Right now the minis are in their "fort" they've inhabited for two days under my dining room table watching movies and arguing over something every five minutes! Thankfully, it's sunny today, although 19 degrees right now. Supposed to be in the 40's so I'm chanting "melt, melt, melt" right now.

I don't think I could ever get used to a winter filled with continuous snow. I'm worn out from all the wet boots, socks, hats, (clothes in general) and non-stop hot chocolate making. But, it has been fun sledding on some great hills we have and chatting with neighbors because we're all snowed in and have actual time to catch up with one another. Mini#1 was playing with friends last night until after 8:00! The neighbors lit one of those chimeneas for s'mores. So, overall, the GREAT NC SNOW of 2010 has been a great success!

*And isn't it funny that a few inches snows us southerners in? And we all raid the grocery stores the day before predicted snow as if we may not escape for weeks!

Glad you had some snowy fun. No snow in ATL - just cold. Met with some neighbor gals last night for wine and we all grew up in the Midwest but now live in the south and we were all laughing about how housebound we've all been since Christmas. Like it's a frozen tundra when it gets below 32 degrees- ha!

We are in the same boat. They just canceled school for Tuesday too. Ughh!
