(HOPEFULLY THE LAST ONE, BECAUSE HEY. IT’S MARCH. ENOUGH ALREADY.)
We got almost 9 inches of snow in less than 8 hours. Tuesday night, the girls and I got home from my parents’ house and it was almost 40 degrees outside. It felt WARM. The ground was clear of snow. But when I woke up at 4:30am and peeked outside, I saw SNOW. EVERYWHERE. It was nuts.
School was cancelled and I didn’t bother trying to get out of the neighborhood to take Audrey to daycare. So we buckled down for a day at home. I still had work to do for a client but thankfully the girls cooperated and I ended up logging about 4 1/2 hours of work time throughout the day! Their reward? Playtime in the snow before dinner! (By then, the sun had come out for a while and started melting everything, so we only had 3-4 inches of snow left once we got out there! But they didn’t care.)
I plopped my pregnant butt in a lawn chair in our driveway (freshly-cleared of snow thanks to a wonderful friend’s husband, since MY husband was enjoying the 80 degree weather in Phoenix on a work trip!) and took some pictures. My mobility is low these days, so some of the shots could have been better at a closer or different angle, but hey. Whatever. SNOW! And I figured I should take advantage of the fact that the girls are FINALLY at a point where they can play together without too much interaction by me. This will be VERY HELPFUL THIS SUMMER when I’m caring for a newborn baby!
Then we headed inside for our typical Daddy Is Out Of Town And It’s Just Us Girls dinner: grilled cheese and tomato soup. Perfect!
But, seriously, Weather: this needs to be it. Okay? BRING US SPRING!
