sometimes a "long weekend" refers to a mini-vacation like labor day/memorial day weekend, it starts on friday and ends on monday. this past weekend was not one of those...
the kids were out of school once again due to icy conditions. i stayed in as i don't like driving on the stuff unless it is quite necessary, and it wasn't. i don't think i ever even got out of my pajamas except to shower and change pajamas.
john left for lexington to go to a university of kentucky basketball game. so, i stayed jammied up most of the day, drank coffee, and cheered on the winning cats from the comfort of my couch. afterwards, i showered, clothed, and cleaned the house (i even mopped;).
sunday morning was beautiful. it snowed about an inch on top of the already ice-laden trees. the branches bent from the weight of the added snow, though the streets were clear. i got up and went to the bakery to get katherine some sugar cookies. no luck, all the bakery had left were donuts: glazed, cinnamon twists, and honey buns. i guess the clear roads were a good reason for everyone to get out early to get their sugar fixes;)
afterwards, i took a long winter's nap. i awoke, watched the red carpet, drank a glass of champagne, and enjoyed the academy awards. later, i showered/shampooed/shaved, jammied back up and went to bed.
the kids finally went back to school! yay, them! yay, me! i love having katherine at home, but enough is enough... it's one thing when she's home and we're mobile. it's another when we're stuck... she's bored, i'm bored, and nothing seems to get accomplished around the house.
today, i did laundry... a lot of laundry!
finally, as i sit here typing, i'm preparing to go cook john dinner. i just heard the weather man forecast still more snow for tomorrow.
i love pj's!
i love when uk wins!
i love when john gets to go to a game!
i love champagne!
i love snow (really i do)!
