Snow Day

Calista had the day off today not because it was too snowy to go to school, but because there was snow in the forecast.  Can you believe that?  It did end up snowing a lot, but I’m from the east coast and we used to trudge to the bus stop in snow up to our knees, so this whole “school is cancelled because it *might* snow” thing is a little weird to me.  But Calista enjoyed it!

Skip headed home from work early today as well, because when there is snow in this town, everything comes to a screeching halt.  I guess we just don’t get enough snow to actually have the proper trucks and equipment to deal with it, so everyone freaks out when the white stuff falls.

Fortunately, V, who reads my blog, had a code for a pink dragon Webkinz that her one year-old didn’t need, so Calista was able to log in at and register her dragon!  It kept her busy for quite a while, and I suspect it will continue to do so for some time, so thank you, V!  Her dragon is named Pinky Polka-Dot, but the way.

I spent some time giving out kitchen and dining room a decent cleaning, and now, as I look around, i remember why I never do that.  I spent a good hour of my life wiping the counters, vacuuming the floor, cleaning the high chairs, putting away the dishes and toys only to have it look like it was never cleaned at all just a few hours later.  It’s so frustrating!  I hate that our house is always a mess, but it’s near impossible to keep up with the kids dragging toys out all over the house, the never ending laundry, the filth that accumulates in the bathrooms…  ugh.  I live in a pig sty!

Oh, Skip informed me tonight that he doesn’t think he wants any more kids (I blame Ace for this).  Now while I have no desire to try to get pregnant again, I’d be happy with an “accident” or better yet, would like to pursue adoption.  up until dinnertime tonight, I thought that was a possibility in a year or two, but he seems pretty sure he’s done.  Funny thing is, when I was pregnant with the boys, I was more than done, I was DONE and wanted to have my tubes tied during the c-section, but Skip asked me not to because he wasn’t sure if he wanted to do anything permanent.  Then I started opening my mind up to the possibility of another some day, and obviuosly, he’s been closing his.

Maybe time will change his mind…

  1. I’m right there with you on the cleaning! It’s so frustrating!

    By the way, Atlanta is the same way with snow. Even a dusting and the whole city shuts down. For someone who’s lived in Maine and Michigan that’s absurd to me. ;)

  2. OMGosh…..I love reading your blog because it’s as if it’s me writing it every time! :) We have frozen embryos right now and I can’t bring myself to do anything with them so we pay the storage fee every month. I think I KNOW we should be done….the doctor TELLS me we should be done, but I’d love to have another. And I hear ya on the house as well. It’s not money hubby and I sometimes squabble about…it’s the continual MESS!!!!

    Glad you got the code for Calista :)
