…remember when we were dreaming of a white Christmas.
We were supposed to have 1-3 inches of snow on Saturday ending with about a half inch of freezing rain. Instead, we had 10 inches of snow followed by a pound of rain so that every shovelful felt like you were lifting a frozen Thanksgiving turkey, 20+ pounder.
Anyway, Hubster did most of the heavy lifting…I tried to convince him that this storm was snow blower worthy, but NO, he said the exercise was needed. Thank goodness we had plenty of wine and salt.
As I am writing it is Oscar Night…just so you know I am currently wearing my favorite pair of Victoria Secret flannel PJ’s and I blew my hair out earlier today so with all the snow exercise and wine drinking, I am feeling and looking marvelous.
See what I mean…
Many of my teaching colleagues are already talking delay for tomorrow…this would be nice because then I would be justified in staying up to watch a bit of the Oscars, but I can’t take a chance because the most wonderful time of the school year is impending…testing season. I am desperately trying to squeeze in all the measurement and fraction lessons that are reasonably possible before the test.
This is part of the reason fractional measurement is challenging for students and adults alike….
Anyway back to the Oscars…
I am not really rooting for anyone or any movie as most of the movies I enjoyed this past year were not even nominated and several that were nominated I did not enjoy.
Such is Hollywood and life…it is fun to see what everyone is wearing.
Hubster and I were supposed to visit Peggy Anne over the weekend, but the weather kept us home. We are not wimps, but we also enjoy our lower insurance rates so we stayed put…I sewed ala Project Snow Day and Hubster was able to catch up on all the On Demand viewing that does not suit my taste aka The Walking Dead or any other zombie type show/movie.
I hope you have a fabulous week…and if you are a parent of a child home for another frozen snow day…enjoy things could be worse.
Really…let it go!
