Looks like school is going to be canceled tomorrow too, and since snow is expected on Wednesday, there's a possibility school could be canceled for the rest of the week. I'm trying to enjoy every minute of having Jason home in order to make up for the bitterness I'll feel in June when he's working an extra week. I did get to sleep in today, and that pretty much made my whole day.
Even though the Powers That Be recommended everyone stay home today, we had a small emergency that forced us out of the house: we ran out of hot chocolate. Seriously. We can't possibly be expected to endure this sub-freezing weather without hot chocolate, can we? So we took atrip to Costco. And then since we were out and about, we had lunch at Applebees (where the girls had coupons for free lunches). We even braved the roads a second time and drove through the Keizer Christmas Lights tonight (where much oohing and ahhing and exclamations of "pretty" abounded).
Of course, we couldn't have made it too far if we had been driving in the car. No sirree. We hauled around town in Jason's truck with the 4-wheel drive on. The roads are super icy, and even the gravel doesn't seem to help too much. Last night we were out walking around (making snow angels, of course) and Jason ended up helping push someone's car through an intersection (on Commercial Street for you locals) because it was just stuck there, wheels spinning. I was praying fervently that the car wouldn't run over him. Thank you, dear Lord, for protecting my sweet husband.
And now it's 21 degrees outside, the girls are in bed, and in a little while I'm going to snuggle up with my sweetie and watch Heroes (even though the storyline has me totally lost). As for tomorrow, I'm bummed that my MOPS group has canceled its Christmas party, but hopefully the library will stay open and we can make it to story time.
Extra bonus for Jason: tomorrow he gets to sleep in.
Oh yeah. We know how to have fun.
