Cabin fever!

I love having snow days since they are pretty rare in the Southeast, but five in a row is a little crazy! My kids school was closed all week this week as was my office for Monday and Tuesday. The office opened up the rest of the week for those who could get out. I was not one of them! We still have a huge patch of ice on the road in front of our house and it wasn't until Friday afternoon that I was able to get out. Even then it took me about 20 minutes to get past the huge ice patch on our street. Cars are still having a hard time going up the hill that we live on due to the ice on the road.

I have loved being at home with my boys for a week, but we were all getting cabin fever! Even though Meg and I both did a great deal of work from home, we still spent most of the day entertaining the boys. The novelty of the snow wore off as soon as it turned into ice. We played in the white stuff all day on Monday, but only for about 15 minutes on Tuesday. We all keep slipping and falling and it just wasn't fun. That was the end of our time in the snow/ice. So we had to find other things to do. There was alot of Wii playing, movie watching, crafts/puzzles and complaining that there was nothing else fun to do in the house. I had several creative ideas that were shot down so we usually just went back to the Wii. By Friday, I was going crazy! We did walk down to a nearby restaurant on Wednesday night to meet some friends for dinner but the walk back up and down icy roads with the kids in the stroller was pretty treacherous! I never thought I would say that I was looking forward to going back to work, but I am!

Anyway, here are some pictures from our time in the snow!

I plan on getting a proper sled soon for the next time we have a snow day (or 5)!

re your comment about Brad in the FSU hat.....1st time worn FSU gear in 7 years....think he gets a pass. If I'm going to wear UGA gear all the time, he can wear once in 7 years....don't you think?!?!
