I sit in a quiet house for the first time in a week. A crazy blizzard plus several atypical days of subzero temperatures kept the entire family huddling in a thankfully barely-warm-enough house, but today, finally, our routine is back to normal. Finally, I get some alone time.

Until Mother Nature puts a stop to that nonsense on Tuesday night.

That’s right, we’re getting another (possibly crazy) blizzard which will lock us all in together for at least another couple of days, and possibly for the remainder of the week.

My children will have forgotten how to add and subtract by the time they get back to school on a permanent basis, but at least they’ll get their Little Big Planet pods just the way they want them.

Thank God for video games. And electricity, and heat, and snacks. And running water. Three days, I melted snow for washing. I don’t recommend it. The ratio of frozen pounds to melted gallons doesn’t work in our favor.

Anyway, the family will have a much-needed return to normal before we are hit once again. I have to go to Wal-Mart and elbow my way through the panicking hoards in order to restock my dwindling supplies; get all the laundry finished by tomorrow night in case the drain freezes again; gas up the car—and I hope I’m not forgetting anything.

Wish me luck.

  1. You're getting more snow, eh? We had some today. Not a lot, but big, floaty flakes. Enough to wreck my commute home, but not much else.

    Supposed to be witheringly cold tomorrow and for the next several days. Wish ME luck. *Sigh*

  2. Running water is AWESOME. I can't believe human beings went so long without it. I mean, they had it in ancient Rome, and how long did it take for us to do it again in other parts of the world? Crazy.

    Video games are a godsend. I love the Wii because little hands don't have to worry about so many buttons. :)

    I'll be praying for you dolly, that this storm passes you by, and that if it doesn't, that you'll get through it intact, *hugs*
