Yeah, it is still pretty darn cold here. This morning I turned on the news as soon as I opened my eyes to check on the school status. I have to check EVERY morning just in case. I saw that the kids had a 2 hour delay. So I turned the tv off and my alarm clock and went back to sleep. I just figured it was icy out. Because, you know, it's been icy out for about a month now. Our driveway is like a skating rink and the stores are running low on salt.
When I got up and checked the news again, the status was the same. Then I noticed the temperature. At 9am the temp was at 4. At least it was in the positive number catagory. But that was at 9am. I don't know what it was at 6am, because I was too sleepy-eyed to check that earlier. But they usually have a delay when it hits negative numbers. Too dangerous for the kids waiting for the bus. And this is Ohio. I can't imagine what the other midwest states go through.
So I have been finding that during the day I've become like plants in a window. When the sun starts to come out, I start to lean in that direction. It's kinda sad really. Of course, maybe my body just knows I need more vitamin D. I've been taking my vitamins like a good girl, but there must be no substitute for the real thing.
The kids haven't been playing in the snow too much anymore. Because like the days after Christmas, they get tired of playing with the new things already. And the snow is just so readily available, it gives you that mindset of "it'll be there tomorrow". Even the dog isn't too excited with it anymore. I have never really seen a dog like snow as much as she does. Or rather, DID, before she got bored with it too. We used to have this little dog who hated to be cold. When we would open the door to let it out in the morning, he would growl at us. Maybe because he was closer to the ground and his belly got cold. brrrr...
Well, since I have been sitting here in my comfy clothes, I feel a little chillier. So I think I am going to do some excersize to warm up a bit. I guess this cold weather could be a good thing for me, to get me back on track. Maybe. Well....not so much. I still want more sunshine. I'm gonna go do some more leaning first.
Have a warm day!
