The Ice Storm Cometh

We've had freezing rain, snow and ice since Friday evening. Perfect weather for staying in and go through all the things I need to give away before we move! I mean, perfect weather to stay in and write.

While I haven't written as much as I should or want to , at least I've gotten enough done that I'm not so frustrated anymore. At the end of the day yesterday, I started to complain that I'd still gotten "nothing done." Instead, I was happy about what I had accomplished: my daughter and I had done a few loads of laundry, I listened to my daughter read a part of one of her favorite books, I played a game of chess with each of my children and two games of checkers with my daughter. It was a good day.

I'm glad to see you made the best of the weather. I saw on the news, it looked pretty bad for areas around you. I'm glad you are all ok and had some nice bonding time.

See? There is a good side to not moving to Kansas! ;) I'll bet Florida is feeling pretty good today!
(It is currently 1 degree above zero outside as I write this!)

Gee, and I thought you had cold weather in October. Keep bonding. Its like when you do not have a car to go anywhere, amazing how much can be accomplished. Those are my memories of spending valuable time with my girls. Enjoy every second of them. N

N,
The weather certainly has been crazy this year!

Yes, it is amazing how much you can get accomplished when you're "stuck" at home, isn't it?
