[no] snow day

School called a Snow Day today.
It snowed a bit yesterday afternoon... baaaarely enough for the kids to go out and scrape up a few snowballs after school:

(also: can you believe that puppy is only 16wks old?!?!!)

I believe it snowed a bit off and on overnight, but there was actually less snow on the ground this morning than when we went to bed.  But I guess some lone road somewhere in our entire county has a bit of ice on it, so no school today.  Meanwhile, our roads are dry as a bone.  I won't go off on that tangent again.

So here we are today; a mom who had a kidless agenda in her head for the day, two antsy kids and an obnoxious puppy who I can't really send outside since it's all of about 18° outside. 

I got all panicky about being cooped up today and wanted to get out and do something fun, but the kids shot down 99% of my ideas.
In the end, I called a Lazy Movie Day... and it's actually been nice.  We've had Netflix on constant stream, pillow pets and blankets are strewn around the living room, we made pillsbury refrigerator biscuit mini-pizzas and popcorn and now brownies are in the oven.
Apparently I'm calling a Throw The Diet & Exercise Out The Window Day as well. ;)

It looks to cold out to play. Glad you made the choice to stay in and lay low. You could always turn on the "dance" and get your workout in too!XOXOXOX

I wanted a snow day this week...I'll hope for next week instead.
