So last week the kids had two snow days.
I was miffed.
Mainly because on Wednesday, the snow didn't even start until school would have been over. They could have gone. But the weather guys were like, "It's coming! It's coming!" breaking into my morning programming and basically stating the same thing over and over again. I went to Twitter and told them to stop it. I asked them to come on during commercial breaks, thanks. I was ignored.
On Thursday we had another snow day, because of the snow that finally fell on Wednesday night. I also found this ridiculous, because most of it melted pretty quickly since the sun was out. So in my eyes, the kids could have gone to school both days.
When snow days happen, there are ALWAYS people who post on their Facebook walls, "I don't understand why people are upset to have their babies home! Spend time with them! They grow up fast!"
I always want to say, "Lady, I know they grow fast. I have a damn teenager. But my husband is deployed and I need my peace."
I don't though. I step away from Facebook.
Then I get back on and see, "Yay! Another snow day! I LOVE spending time with my children. It's the best! We're going to craft all day!"
Okay, you craft all day with your precious one. I'll still make an angry post on Facebook bitching about the snow day, thanks.
I love my kids to bits, but I'm simply one of those people who need my space from them. It's not a bad thing.
The plus about snow days is I do get to sleep in.
And I love doing that.
And on another plus, the weather people are saying it might have been our last snow day of the season. Yay.
Now we just have to hope the tornado season is kind.
