Happy Friday! Are y’all staying warm? It is cold here. I mean, seriously cold. Yesterday’s high was 23 degrees. I chose to live in the South for a reason and freezing my behind off was not part of that reason. I am such a wimp when it comes to cold weather. I’m ready for spring!
I earned some Cool Mom Points on Monday by taking a snow day. There was no snow. It only rained. However, in anticipation of winter storms that never materialized, all the local schools that weren’t closed for President’s Day closed for snow.
Typically, I’d prefer to save our off days for pretty weather. However, there’s just something exhilarating and rejuvenating for a kid about an unexpected day off. They had already been asking the night before because everyone else was off. Then, Brianna’s school closed, so I decided to go with it.
Brianna’s school was closed Wednesday, too, and had a delayed start Tuesday and Thursday. I probably lost my Cool Mom Points those days since I made Josh and Megan do their schoolwork. They’ll thank me this spring.
My attempt at heart-shaped cinnamon rolls for Valentine’s Day
Megan has her first gymnastics meet this weekend. She’d nervous, of course. I’m excited to watch her. I told her when she first started that I would never be one of those moms – I wouldn’t push her because this is her thing. She wanted it. If she wants to excel, she will. However, that was before I learned that the Level 3’s are always the first rotation. At 8-something in the morning.
I told her she needs to move up to Level 4 as quickly as possible. The extra hour or so of sleep is very important. #MostlyKidding
Now, I just hope we don’t have any trouble getting to the meet. Snow is predicted for today and tomorrow. There’s snow in the forecast for next week, too. Did I mention that I’m ready for spring?
Sweets for my sweeties on Valentine’s Day
Brianna is now out on the floor at cosmetology school. That means she’s finished all the coursework necessary to start working on real people instead of mannequins and has passed her first exit exam. That should be exciting, but I think it’s been pretty boring this week – not too many people are coming to get their hair done with all the closings and bad weather.
I wish I some more interesting pictures for you this week, but we’ve mostly been trying to stay warm. Next week I’ll have some better ones – you’ll get to see my girl in her competition leotard! I’m not sure how thrilling that is for you, but it’s cause for great excitement here.
I’m ready for spring. You know, just in case I wasn’t clear on that.
