It's been a bitter cold week and I could bemoan my cold, stiff fingers or the inflated heating bills
that will be billowing in, there is a lot to celebrate!One: Monday, was Martin Luther King's birthday, a day "off" from school making a delicious long weekend. (even if it was snow covered, filled with shoveling, and bitter cold)!
Two: Tuesday was, an "early dismissal" amid a blanket of snow descending on the area. (While it still took me 2 hours to get home, I know I was among the lucky ones as those who left their businesses later that evening had far longer, much colder, and more harrowing trips home.)
Three: Wednesday, we had a delayed opening to school and we knew about it the night before so I did not set the alarm! Yes, there was shoveling and yes the commute including some drifting snow, but still!
Four: With all that "extra" time, I was able to make a local HS basketball game and watch my niece "whoop up" on a team that beat them earlier this season. It made for a late night, but it was still a bit of "extra" fun that all the snow, cold, and "extra time" gave me!
