it's a snow day

it's still snowing. it's been like this since about 7 yesterday night, and still the heavy wet snow falls.

i swapped my home day to today in order to avoid driving. it's not so much the roads in the morning as it is, the roads at the end of the day. but days like this bring me back to real snow days...

when we were younger, we'd troop out to build forts, go sledding on the smallest hill ever and have so much fun blasting each other with snow balls. but somewhere along the way, snow days turned into less fun and more trouble.

maybe it corresponded to when i started driving, since most of the trouble is car related. but i miss the days when it was bundle up into whatever clothes will keep you the warmest and dryest and lets go make snow angels.

now i have to worry about looking presentable when i leave the house, and whether or not my little car will make it up the hill.

so today, i'm drinking hot cocoa, eating pb and j for lunch and i still haven't changed out of my pjs. bring on the snow, i say. sure i'll have to clean off my car eventually, but right now, i'm considering what would make the best substitute for a corn cob pipe.

Is it just me or did it seem like we got a lot more snow when we were young? I remember the entire yard being covered with snow up to my chest. Granted, I was a lot shorter then, but I still think we would regularly get a couple feet of snow.
I'm thinking about blowing off work to go make a snow angel.

Yes all this snow did bring out the kid in all of us. Boy am I itching to go to Nelsons field with a snow tube and fly down that hill-- however it would have to be at nite- because that makes it even funner! Is that a word.. funner?? I am sure SJ will let me know if it is or not.
I think I will go home and make a snow man -- or maybe a SNOW HORSE so little E can sit on it ......

KAT, since when do you need an excuse to blow off work? :-P

I think the older I get, the less I like the snow. Especially since my car is crap in the snow and I usually can't make it up our driveway unless I floor it which means I'm spinning out everywhere. Things were a lot simpler when we were younger. I think I need to make a snowman to brighten my day.
