Another snow day. 

No school because of Blizzard Nemo.

That is the fourth day off in a row. February break is next week and is still on. So if there is school tomorrow and Friday which I highly doubt the kids will have been home for 14 days home in a row. If there is no school Thursday or Friday that will make it 16. Aren’t you proud, I can add. 

While I love having my boy home I think we are all feeling the effects of cabin fever. Luckily it hasn’t been so bitterly cold that Owen has to stay inside. So a lot of his time has been spent outside in the snow. He comes in exhausted. A win win!

I can honestly say I have never seen so much snow in my life. 24″ of snow.

I cant imagine how exciting it was for the kids. Well actually I can. I have hardly seen my boy in three days. He should be an eskimo.

Digging out was not easy.Image

 

It took our guys two full days to clear the snow.

It was so beautiful every where you looked. Snow covered trees, clean snow, no cars. Just peaceful.

Lets just hope we dont get anymore snow for a few days or even weeks. There is no where to put it.

Its hard to hear that you are going to be a single mother for the next few months and accept it. I am not a single mother but for a while I will be. My husband is so busy with work that he will be gone a lot of the time. So to hear that you will be a single mother but really are not is a hard thing.

Will I man up and deal, yes.

Will I try my damnedest to lean on those I trust, yes.

Right now I am being a “Debby Downer” and sulking because it knocked me out of left field.

I guess I have to get used to doing what I want at nap time or bedtime. Having very little time for my needs. Its what being a mom is all about.

Normally I would rely on my spouse for those five minutes to regain my sanity. Now I will just take many deep breaths, accept this is where we are right now and be the best mother I can be. Maybe drink a little more wine at night. 

I must give a huge shout out to all the single mothers out there and the military moms. Its not easy and I raise my hat to you. In all honesty I have been doing it for so long over the past eight years I kind of dont even blink when I hear I will be alone for the week. I have a strong marriage and an incredibly strong bond with my children. We will work together to make this happen flawlessly.

Now if it would just stop snowing long enough to send the kids back to school. We are going on day six of being home and next week is feb vacation. That will be two weeks straight of bored kids home with not much to do. Snowed in because of the blizzard and then the following clean up. 

I can do this!!!!

Deep Breaths!!!!
