While most are asleep and cozy on a rare Memphis actual snow day, I am wide awake and have been since 3:45am.
Yep, it is a definite snow day! I begin to psych myself up for a rare relaxing day with my family.
-- I can fix a nice breakfast, play in the snow, watch some movies, read a book....distract myself from doing any work....
But then I flip the light on in the kitchen and my nerves stand at attention...
Overflowing garbage can, dishes- clean and dirty-, food crumbs, dirty counter, some weird powder- last night's hot chocolate no doubt- in the floor, a puddle here and there as a result of melted ice cubes that must have hidden from the drop-EE.
I will be pleasant today...I will be pleasant today....I will be pleasant today... I chant in my head as I try to find something very quiet, for the next few hours, to occupy my time, in this tiny house, so I do not wake up my happy sleeping boys....
