My life, right now

After record low snowfall in January (we have *only* received 140 inches this winter so far), we have finally gotten a couple storms the last few days.  I suppose the DC area stole all of our snow last week, and I never thought I'd welcome a big storm in February, but here I am, all open-armed and welcoming.

There is a two-hour delayed start for school today, and we had to walk to the bus stop to find out about it.  I honestly didn't think that the weather was bad enough to merit closing school, so I didn't even check my email before we left.  At least the kid across the street didn't know, either.

The girls (minus Sophia, who is sick) are now outside in the front yard, happily playing in the very large snow drifts the wind left us last night.  Why let bundling up for the bus stop go to waste?

I'm procrastinating going upstairs and having my daily meeting with Jillian.  She is kicking my trash.  But I will get into that dress.  Yes.  I will.

Otherwise, I'm off to teach lessons this morning, and practice this afternoon with the first orchestra rehearsal tonight.  Tomorrow is another crazy day full of lessons, dentist appointments, girl scouts, orchestra, practice, and a flight bringing my mother to me.  And then we'll hit the ground running.

Have a great week!

I'll see you on the flip side!

  1. I have a few born yoopers friends who reported that they sent their kids out today as well, only to have the plow drivers send them back in with the 2 hour delay report. You were definitely not alone. :)

  2. We only had about one hour of snow this year, which didn't stick. (Though we did get snow in March last year, so I suppose it could still happen!)

  3. OK, I'm stupid. I thought the big gig was this last weekend! YAY! One more week to slurp yourself into that dress, and time to spend with mom!

    (How would you feel if I told you we spent President's Day in shorts and t-shirts, reading by the pool? If it makes you feel bad, then I won't tell you.)

  7. Lara, I've been thinking about you. I hope this week is everything you need it to be, and that rehearsal goes smashingly.

    I invited Jillian over to stay, too, and she's harder to hang out with than I thought she'd be.

  9. Here's to getting into that dress, and to more snow days! (Here, all we have is sun of late, you'd think the school district would let us out to celebrate those, too!)

    It's true.

  11. I'm kind of jealous about the snow. Ours is all melty and crusty.

    Enjoy your mom's visit, kick Jillian's trash, and have a super week!

  14. I am thinking I need to make that same appt. with Jillian. Because, so far, blogging has yet to help me fit into those jeans.

    You know the ones.

  16. Jillian is tough! I feel great if I can manage that workout once a week, hopefully I can work up to doing it more often but I still have a lot of moving to finish before I can get back on the workout wagon.

  17. Here's hoping everything works out with the dress and I'm excited for all your excitement to settle down! Hang in there!

  18. Oh, congratulations! I'm sure you sounded beautiful (I hope I'll get to hear it!), and you look just gorgeous, too. You deserve to celebrate!
