Five Minute Friday

START.
.
I wasn't going to talk about snow, but then I realized that I didn't have much else to talk about since it has been snow that has dominated our lives this week. I live in Mississippi for Pete's sake. I'm tired of this white stuff.
.
Wednesday, we left for school and work knowing that it was coming and school was closing at 11:45. Kenny picked up Carly and I worked to 12:00 in Memphis. I started south and 1/2 way home it went from flurries to the road being covered. What?!?
.
It took me an hour to drive the second half of the commute which would have taken 15 minutes any other day. During that hour I saw 9 wrecks. One of them involved 8 vehicles. And there were still people acting like idiots!
.
So Thursday, Carly went across the neighborhood to play with friends because snow is not much fun by yourself. And like I said, I'm SO done (not that I'm a good snow playmate to begin with). They threw snowballs and sledded and got wet and cold.
.
School was back open today. THANK YOU!! The sun is shining and hopefully we are done with the white stuff this year. Dear God, I'm so OVER it!! Send it to Arizona, they would probably like a snow day! Thank you, Kim Sue.
.
STOP.

I have found a whole new appreciation for families whose routines have been disrupted by snowfall this year. I lived in snow for a long time - but i was young and in college. It's an entirely different ballgame when "real life" gets affected :)

sending sunny rays yoru way!!

(don't you love Five Minute Friday? seriously brilliant)

No. No. No. We in Arizona are functioning just fine without snow days. Thank you very much.

Send it up here to us - - - we've only got about 18 inches on the ground and I would LOVE more. We haven't seen the bare ground since the first week of December and that's EXACTLY the way I like it - - - - until March, then I'll be OK with spring arriving.

Amen sister! I am so over the snow! I'm so glad you were okay with all of those wrecks going on!

It's crazy to me that school gets canceled and that people drive so crazy when it snows there. I understand that they're not used to it and not equipped to deal with it, but it's so foreign to me. We have never had a snow day in all these years that my kids have been in school and we've had major snow!

We had 2 snow days here recently and it never even snowed. I sure did enjoy my 2 freebies from the office though.

Thank you for the darling monogrammed bib, I LOVE IT! Luci and Griffin were thrilled with their book too.
