Yesterday was MLK day for my kids. They enjoyed the day by laying around. C was on the computer ALL DAY, and Little Man watched the hell outta some youtube (just like his dad. They watch it like tv. TV for those with ADD, although, neither of my guys has ADD. They are just smart and impatient.) Then, later they went outside. They played for hours. Later, I found out they player for hours and little man neglected to wear gloves. I guess, at one point his friend and him put socks on their hands. His excuse was he didn't know where any of his gloves were.
His gloves, all seven pairs of them, were in the glove and hat basket. Where they have always been. Since the dawn of time, or at least since I have been washing and putting away their clothes. Sigh.
Anyway, the weather wasn't getting any better last night. The kids went to bed praying for a snow day. Well, at 5:45 this morning, their prayers were answered. As an added bonus, so was the school in which C was supposed to face in Basketball today, so the game is now canceled as well. Since all the school buildings were closed today, that means Little man won't have practice either and this Monkee doesn't have to drive around like a mad woman tonight! Woo hoo! :) I set up dinner in the crock pot this morning, wrote out their list of chores that I wanted complete by days end, and set off for work hoping not to slide around too much.
I made it to work a little worse for wear, but alright. I do feel guilty though. I am sitting at my desk in my nice warm office with my heater going full blast at my feet while my hubby is outside working in the 5 degree temperatures. I am hoping the new socks and fleece I bought him yesterday keep him warm!
Here's hoping this is the last snow day for awhile. I don't know if my house can take much more of two young'ins roaming free all day ;)
