Who’s going cuckoo crazy and is ready to go back to school?
I know you can’t believe you are saying it but three days at home with your loved ones unable to drive is bound to produce a little cabin fever. Also drying all those wet snow clothes stinks too.
I am loving Facebook through the snowstorm because I can see what all my friends and family are doing. I am seeing lot of sledding. One friend from high school found that cooking oil make the sled go faster but also more inclined to crash.
I see lots of friends playing card games and some doing puzzles as a family. Also reports from plenty of parents popping on movies to fill the cold days.
I’m also seeing and hearing a surprisingly large number of friends walking to the grocery store. I think they just wanted to get out of the house more than they needed stuff.
My favorite discussion on Facebook is all my teacher friends worried about how the days are going to be made up – they do NOT want to lose spring break days! (This is link from a Monday story about how the counties plan to handle missing days. I will link to an updated story when it is up.)
So how are you faring in the storm? Are you ready to go back to normal life? Do you feel bad for Yankees who have snow all the time (big difference is they are plowed out and ready to go about their daily lives generally). (When we lived in State College, Pa. and the first giant snow storm hit I was shocked that I was supposed to show up to work! Huh! What! Let’s just all stay at home.) How are you dealing with cabin fever? Who is annoying your more: the kids or your husband?
