I can't believe I'm actually cheering for a blizzard in March, but I am!  I'm lucky enough to work in a school district that I love, which is incredibly stressful, difficult, yet rewarding work.  But I can't help but feel like a little kid at the prospect of a "SNOW DAY!"  For those of you not working in education, remember the sweet victory you felt when listening on the radio just to hear your school called out as one that is closed for the day?  And suddenly, a little gift from heaven above, a day where you don't have any obligations, where you don't have to deal with the bully on the bus or science homework.  As an adult, I appreciate those days even more - a day without meetings, without appointments, without stress.  A gift of a day that I can do whatever I want with.  If we have a snow day tomorrow (which looks pretty good at this point) after our 10+ inches of snow prediction and blizzard warning, then I will spend the day lounging around with my kiddos, playing games, maybe watching a movie, and definitely dreaming of the gardening season to come!


  1. I have worked in education since college. I still love snow days. I know its totally ridiculous, but I do. I hope you get one.

    Thanks for your work on your blog. I saw you are new to Blotanical.com glad to have you there.
