  1. I miss the “almighty” schedule/routine…never thought I would say that! We went from a two week holiday break to snow days on the Thursday and then the Friday the kids were supposed to return and now (Monday) we have a delay due to freezing rain. Being that PreK is only half day, my daughter won’t go at all today. She seriously thinks I am holding her hostage from school and her friends. Because ya know…Momma’s can fix/destroy everything…even the weather.

  2. I can’t wait for tomorrow! The kids will be back in school…yes, odd that they are starting on a Tuesday. But, anyways, I have already started 3 lists in my head on what needs to be done and another list in my Notes on what lists I need to make. Back to the grind!
