Snow Day

It's a snow day today--and that's a big understatement.

It's been snowing for more than 12 hours now and we have several inches of snow. No signs of it stopping anytime soon. In fact, a storm that was supposed to give us 6 inches as of yesterday and 12 inches as of this morning is now up to 14 inches PLUS, up to TWO FEET in areas. It's hard to tell with all the blowing and drifting--my husband's car is nearly clean because of the way the wind is blowing. But everything blowing off his car is piling up on (and in front of) MY van. Huh.

It's so snowy that Father cancelled all Masses this weekend. Therefore, the Secular Franciscans will not be hosting our "Living Nativity at Greccio" this year.

TheDad thought that this would be a perfect day for me to bake cookies, but I'm parked on the couch with cramps, Advil and a heating pad. No cookies today--I'm not up for standing in the kitchen for several hours rolling out dough. Not gonna happen. Sorry, cookie eaters. Maybe later in the week.

I should be working out the rest of my pre-surgery meal plans, etc. But I'm not getting much done. That's OK, I guess. I'll need to learn to accept that kind of reality 3 weeks from now, so I'll just consider this practice.

Hope you, too, feel better!

Get a hot water bottle for the recovery....I found it better than the heating pad, I didn't have to worry about falling asleep and getting burned!!

I vote for the hot water bottle too!

Sounds lie a good time to put your feet up and rest. I always think of snow days as days off for everyone.
