Yesterday was a snow day in New York City. Someone in my daughter’s class said that the last public school snow day was, “a hundred million years ago.” Wow, that is a very long time.
Needless to say, my daughter came home on Tuesday all set to put homework off ’til the next day. Needless to say, I decided for her that all work would get done as usual. And again, it need not be said that she was very unhappy with me. I got over it.
As I predicted, she was very happy that all she had to do was read for her reading log. As soon as kids realize that their mothers are always right, life will become infinitely easier.
We ventured out of the house, (much to my misery), and got as far as the school yard on the corner. Since it was full of untouched snow, we stayed. We returned home soaking wet and exhausted. I haven’t taken my daughter out in the snow by myself in years. That is usually my husband’s domain. It took alot out of me, but it was fun.
It was hard to get up this morning, soooooo tired. I had to get to the market before I was too worn out to go. While I was walking, there was a man shoveling who was trying to watch out for me while I crossed his driveway. I realize that was because he was afraid of a lawsuit in the even that I fell. Thanks mister!
It is hard enough walking with a cane. Throw snow into the mix and you have a freak show.
Peace and painlessness,
