No more snow days - PLEASE
Tuesday was understandable (snow and wintry mix all day long, cold temps, icy roads), Wednesday was questionable (cold and rainy with some lingering ice and slush), today was RIDICULOUS (sunny and WARM - 40 degrees people). The roads were dry all day. They should have been at school, learning and playing and having fun with their friends. Not at home playing Mario Kart. One snow day is fun, we bake cookies and watch a movie, but 3?! I feel like I have lost an entire week of productivity.
On another note, did anyone see The Biggest Loser the other night? When the 400 lb boy was "jogging" on the treadmill and stumbled and Jillian screamed at him to get up and keep running? Gwen is like my Jillian. I was riding my exercise bike today and was at the peak of my workout, climbing that last huge hill, when Gwen, who is rolling around on the living room floor says, "that looks pretty easy... I guess it is a little hard, but I could do that... why are you pedaling so slow..." I just stared at her and while gasping for air, said in a not so nice way "go upstairs". I bet that 400 lb boy really wanted to tell Jillian to get lost too. Sometimes being the mom has it's perks.
