How To Enjoy A Snow Day

Be startled awake by the sound of your phone ringing.  Know that it will be good news on the other end of the phone.

Jostle husband from a sound sleep to give him the happy news. 

Try to go back to sleep after you receive the call at 5:13 a.m.

Toss & turn because you're so excited about the day off you can't go back to sleep.

Finally begin to nod off in your warm bed and the alarm sounds.

Toss & turn because you're determined to sleep in a little since you can.

Give up after about fifteen minutes and drag yourself out of bed.

Enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee while reading the paper and having the time to finish the NYT crossword puzzle.

Watch as they scroll through all the closed schools on the TV and show live camera shots of the roads and freeways, complete with cars in the ditch and accidents.  

Really enjoy the fact that you don't have to get out on the roads this morning.

Check the class schedule at Lifetime Fitness to try and motivate yourself to go exercise at some point today.

Check Facebook.  Comment and like anything related to snow day today.

Debate whether it would be better to stay home and walk on the treadmill in the basement.

Think about how much work you could get done if you go into school for a few hours today.  

Eat a big breakfast, since you're going to exercise later.

Bask in the luxury that you can do whatever you want today, whenever you want.

Check Facebook, email, and read some blogs. 

Realize that if you don't get moving soon, you won't get anything done today.

..... but wait a minute here.  Isn't that what a snow day is really for?

Here's wishing all my teacher friends a great day!


  1. Now that is a positive blog! Love, love, love reading it - Every Time! You really should think about publishing it! - book form!

  2. Do not go into school! This is a FREE day... conveniently after report cards were already due so nothing is hanging over our heads. :)

  3. Right back at ya, sistah! XO Madeline
