Winter Wonderland

It's winter.  It IS a wonderland.

I wonder when it is going to stop snowing.  It has been putting down the white stuff nonstop since eight o'clock this morning.  No signs of letting up yet.

I wonder how many times I am going to have to shovel the driveway.

I wonder why I am actually shoveling the driveway since all of our vehicles are four wheel drive.

I wonder how many more snow days we will use before Mother Nature releases her grip on the thermometer so roads can melt and clear.

 I wonder how many movies we can watch before our brains turn to mush.

I wonder how much food teenage boys can consume before the actually feel full. 

I wonder if teenage girls ever get tired of thinking about clothes, jewelry and nail polish.

I wonder where my sweet ten year old girl disappeared to and who this hormonal wreck is that has taken her place.

I wonder how long Grant will delight in teasing his now hormonal ten year old sister until she cries.

I wonder if I should be enjoying these long snowy days more than I actually am.

I wonder if I should feel guilty for not enjoying these long snowy days.

I wonder if anyone cares that I am not enjoying these long snowy days.

Honestly, it has been a pretty quiet week by zoo standards.  We have been home a lot, and it has been crazy loud and messy here.  But that is still a pleasant change from the normal rush of running people around to their various activities.

John's military ball fell victim to inclement weather.  It was supposed to be this Saturday but has now been rescheduled for March 5.  Grace had her first quick recall match canceled Wednesday.  There were a few doctor appointments and other things also on the schedule that were canceled.  So the upside of all the snow is that we got to stay home and spend some time together.  Always a good thing.

We've watched movies, made cookies, popped popcorn and played video games way more than is probably good for us.  Who really cares, right?  We don't.  It's been fun.  I'm just ready to get back to life and a real schedule come Monday morning.  PLEASE!!!

Have a good weekend.  Stay warm.  Stay safe.
