I will not completely freak out. I will remain calm, and hopeful.
School is canceled for the fourth day in a row. Ice storm. Yes, it is fun for the first few days. Then it starts to suck. Yes, I said Suck. if that offends you, you can suck it.
See? I'm losing it. But that was funny, you gotta admit.
We've watched all the movies, played outside, baked a lot, made it up the icy hill to go visit my mom, played her games, ate her food, watched her TV, drank a lot of coffee, and I may possibly be drinking a glass of wine right this minute.
Tomorrow the kids will be here (most likely plotting to take over the world, or steal the moon, whichever comes first) while the painter is finishing some projects, while the realtor and her friend measure, and while I magic eraser more crap off the doors. They will not be in school, because 5% of the roads are still icy. That's okay. Not complaining. Gotta play it safe.
But OH MY GOSH.
WE HEART STRUCTURE. And School. And Teachers. OOOOh how I love teachers.
And I yearn to go back to work. This week was a bust due to ice and realtors (ha). Worked from home (love being a writer these days... post on internet=day is done). Counseled one client on the phone, and one through email as they arrived in Moscow.
Need to return to real world.
Ice and Cold, go away, come again another day. Or never.
