002: snow day baby



As you may, or may not know, this week hasn’t exactly gone as I’d planned. I came down with the flu on Sunday and spent Sunday and Monday in bed, either asleep or moaning in pain. Yay! Feeling better now, but with temps not even above 0 (!) and snow coming down until sometime tomorrow, I’m not exactly eager to leave the house. (I mean, I am eager…but…) I’m more than a little bummed at the timing of all of this – tomorrow was supposed to be a “me” day. The kids were both going to be at school/daycare and I was going to take an extra vacation day since I’d already been told nobody else was planning on coming in. Also, I had a job interview. But now the kids’ schools are closed, my interview is postponed, and I probably won’t get to the leave the house. I love my kids dearly, but I’ve been cooped up in this house with them for 13 straight days now. And now I’m looking at 4 more.

Did I mention it would have been the first time I’ve had a “me” day and been home alone since H was born? Yeah.

Luckily the little meatball looks awfully cute gazing at the snowstorm. <3
