One whole week of being snowed in with two junior high girls has made the cat mean and made me even meaner. I was down for the count with the worst flu bug I’ve had in 20 years, hubby was away on business for 3 weeks, and the little darlings were chomping at the bit to get outside. So as we’ve snowballed, sledded, skated, slid, and skidded our way through the last few days, I’ve had my share of cold-medicine induced hallunications and a few revelations, to wit:

AMEN to the sentiment of one meal per day if you don’t work. Many years ago my daughters whined about not having their favorite treats in the house. I remember looking at them and saying “Are you planning on getting a job soon since treats are for WORKING people bringing home a PAYCHECK!” That sent both to their rooms in a sulk but even now many many years later they laugh and say that there was little doubt in their minds from an early age that if they wanted something special in their lives (treats just being a minor item) they would have to WORK for it. Your daughters are blessed to have you as a Mom (and you can tell them I said so!)
Sympathies! We’re dealing with the same weather here, and it has a way of making life … interesting.
Love it. I think that Missouri has just become MICHIGAN!!. My son just informed me last night that we have nothing good to eat in the house. My reply, you have been home for a whole week and eaten everything except the kitchen sink, GET A JOB!! or learn how to cook!!.
Saw a church sign today that said. “Whoever is praying for snow, Please Stop!!”. I really think all the children are pray for snow because God hears children’s prayers.
Take care, keep warm, and most of all, try not to kill the children!!
