To be a child in winter. Do you remember? How you would wait so anxiously to see if the name of your school appeared on the "CLOSED" list. Your little heart beating so rapidly in your chest, waiting and wishing and watching that snail-paced scroll of school names appearing at the bottom of your TV Screen. And just when it was about to get to the name of your school.... BANG... a commercial appears...and the list disappears. And then you wait and wait for the commercial to end... only to see that the list continued during the commercial break... and now you have to wait until your section of the alphabets appears.
So... boychild had his first snow day of this new school year. However, the school closed at 7:07...and he gets on the bus at 6:39? Someone , somewhere was just a little off in getting the announcement made.
Anyway.... his Wednesday wasn't as sucky as mine. I know that Thursday will have to be better... OH please... let it be so. Of course it's our Holiday carry-in at work... and you can't forget the White Elephant gift exchange.(well I can forget that part).
