ENOUGH!

Sorry for yelling, but REALLY! I've HAD IT! I get up this morning to a flashing light on my phone. In this neck of the woods that means another message from the school. My kids go to two different schools and both leave messages from time to time with talk mail. One school's messages are short and few, and the other school's principal LOVES to talk. LOVES to leave lots of messages (at least 3 a week). And LOVES to make sure that you heard what she says so repeats everything. And.... Did you know if you press 6 the message will speed up? Thank you Sara for that life saving tidbit of info. Makes her sound like a Chipmunk. You remember Alvin, Simon, and Theodore?
But I digress.
Rolling my eyes, I listen to the message. Guess what? The kids are getting a five day weekend! School has been cancelled. Why? BECAUSE OF A SNOW STORM!!!!! SNOW STORM!!!!! Should I say it again? SNOW!!!! April 5th and school is cancelled because of snow. 20cm worth. About 8 inches. Thankfully it will be turning into rain around noon and no shoveling will be necessary. I hope.
Welcome to the Great White North. Snow Cone anyone?

that principal wouldn't be on my good side for very long leaving so many messages. oy! and now a 5 day weekend -- maybe you can put 'em to work cleaning the house for you.

I wish I had a 5 day weekend :( but the institutes & colleges require more than snow to close and we only got SLUSH last night and Boston got rain. So here I am, sneaking a peak at the internet ;-/ Does this dampen your knitting time?

We got some too, and more expected tonight. I guess this makes up for January. They closed school for 8"?

A five day weekend is a good thing, and we want more of them.

5 day weekends; loved by kids and bemoaned by parents. I homeschooled my two so that meant no snow days. They hated that.

I could hardly believe it when I woke up to snow the other morning. I was just getting used to the nicer weather!
