Mid-Winter Break

Today is Mid-Winter Break for our public schools.  I mean not really a “break”, some years it has been a Friday and a Monday, some other districts have an entire week.  That being said, this year with 6 snow days, we don’t need much of a break.

It started snowing here last night around 5:30pm or so and by 7:30 or so we easily had 3 inches.  Woke up this morning and I would say that we have 3 inches of snow  Looks like we are blessed that today was a scheduled day off already, because we probably would’ve had a snow day if not.

The little and I were supposed to go see a movie with my Mom at 10am, but due to the snow we have decided to cancel.  No telling how any of the roads are.  Especially since they may not be in any hurry to clear them with all the kids here being out of school.

Here is what I see for my Monday, relaxing!  I want to read, finish up the book that I started this weekend If You Only Knew: My Unlikely, Unavoidable Story of Becoming Freeand maybe move onto another one.  At some point I will go out to shovel. Which may sound like a chore to some, but I love getting the exercise in.  My 6 year old will probably play in the snow, I will listen to a podcast and get the driveway cleared, win-win.

Currently I am watching the RHONY reunion from last summer to catch up before the new season starts here in a couple of weeks.  I just placed an amazon order to get my 11 year old a bathing suit for Florida.  He tried his one from last year and couldn’t get it up all the way, looks like it is time for a bigger size.

I am back to strict low-carb for the next 11 days.  When I had my headache last week, I just ate anything that sounded good.  Including multiple bowls of ramen noodles, bowls of cereal and some candy.  The hubs took me out to Red Robin for a delicious avocado, bacon burger and bottomless sweet potato fries.  Now I am back on the wagon until we leave for our vacation.  Where I will not be paying attention at all to what I am eating and how much!

My plan is to do Yoga at least 5 times this week.  I took all last week off, due to the headache.  Even though yoga may have helped, probably would’ve helped, I just didn’t feel up to it.

Thankful for another day to relax.  Another day to stay home and enjoy time with Noah.  I am thankful for a job where I can take a day without any kind of repercussions.  I am thankful for a husband who works his A$$ off to afford me this luxury.

What will you do with your Monday??

  1. Hi! I am kind of enjoying the one day winter break we get… no supplemental snow days as of yet. It has been one of those days that I wish I had something planned, but I am glad I don’t!
