How Many Snow Days Does it Take to Lose Your Mind?
February 14, 2019
How many snow days does it take to lose your mind? Well, that depends largely on the age and temperament of your children, how many of the normal household rules you are willing to break, and obviously the amount of wine and chocolate mama has on hand!
I’ve actually lost track of how many snow days we’ve had, which some may take as an indication that my mind is gone already (or that I’ve had too much wine). But I know for sure that there have only been two weeks since Christmas when my children have been to school for the whole week, and my husband has been on three different work trips in the month of February alone. So if my mind is intact at all, it’s hanging on by a thread. And my home is most certainly a disaster zone for which I don’t think FEMA’s going to send relief.
However, I take comfort in knowing that I’m not the only one feeling this way, and I hope others will take comfort in seeing the carnage that has been my household this past month. Happy Valentines Day everyone! I am gifting myself a snow blower and a weekend in Florida – ironically, without my husband. Have fun with the kids honey!
