What I Did. . .

My two, no make that THREE days off of school.
Sunday night I got a sub for a Mental Health Day on Wednesday.
Monday night we were preparing and hoping for just a delayed start Tuesday.
Tuesday school was cancelled due to the ICE STORM.
I cancelled my sub for Wednesday, because I got to have Tuesday off.
Tuesday night, we find out there is no school on Wednesday. :(
Most people are happy for the time off.
Yesterday I was happy, today I was bummed, tomorrow makes me worry these days might cut into my trip to Idaho for my little sisters wedding in June.
All of our bad weather days are all used up-- days that teachers long for during the crazy days of spring. When twitterpated hormonal teenagers are driving you bonkers. :0)
I know you know what I am talking about.
We have made the most of our time off.
  1. Since the whole family was home Tuesday we had a whole family cleaning party :D
  2. A closet clean out and bags filled for GOODWILL
  3. Claire and I made her Valentines, I packaged them all up without a pic, but here is the picture from the website and a link just in case you want to make your own.
  4. Photo from Shabby Blogs

  5. I graded papers, and more papers

  6. I made homemade chicken and noodle soup-- with homemade noodles. Thanks for the suggestion Becca.

  7. I had some {ALONE} time at home with my hubby while Claire was at a friends house. I can't remember the last time we were home {ALONE} together.

  8. Claire and I played with my new camera
  9. I made a Birthday Banner for a friend at work.
  10. 9. Claire had slumber parties in our room

10. We played lots of games

11. Made homemade Chili

12. A couple sessions of Yoga

I am sure that there will be much more to add-- I am hoping this does not extend into Friday. Say your prayers and cross your fingers everyone.

you are SUPER productive girl! All I can manage is laundry, dishwasher, and keeping this kids from injuring each other. it would be way too hard to drive to the ER;) I so needed to go to Target on I really should have gone on Monday. What was I thinking?! Now we have no good food I want to eat and Papa John's would not even deliver to us!

Isn't it amazing what you can do at home when everything outside of home is canceled?! Very cute birthday banner.
