Hello! We are all here enjoying the SNOW we got. Let me tell you what a big deal this is....We haven't had snow since 2010....and then I can count on one hand the times we've had snow since I've lived here (1995-ish). I grew up with snow every winter, but my poor kids have barely seen it in their lifetimes. So, we've been out of school for two days....possibly three (we've got 2 maybe 3 inches)....all you up north people are laughing, I'm sure. We do not have snow "gear"....like nothing....I know some people around here who have warm weather gear, but we just never have bought it. I had to scrounge up gloves....they were mismatched. My son actually used dish gloves! Believe it or not, the dish gloves were the BEST. He put some cotton stretchy ones (you know the kind...those super cheapo one size fits all gloves) underneath and then put the rubber gloves on top. He was the only one with dry hands! I'm totally doing that next time! My second son was the only one with real snow gloves, and he wimped out after a little while. My poor daughters only had the thin cheapo gloves that I mentioned above, so we had the dryer going and I would rotate. They would each have two pair, and while they were wearing one pair, the other was drying, so they would have hot dry gloves every 20 minutes or so. It was crazy. I made everybody put on three pairs of pants, three shirts, a sweatshirt and then a coat on top....and then a hat and a hood. Everybody wore the next kid up's boots (since they had on so many socks). My oldest son wore my boots.
(notice how my little cutie just HAD to put on her neon yellow basketball shorts over her snow gear...haha, she is the biggest character ever)
Now we are enjoying hot cocoa and snuggling up on the couch watching a movie.
Life is good today
I have a little bit more to do on my chair, and then I'll be sharing that with you guys this evening. Adding all of the nailhead trim has caused the paint job around it to get all kinds of scratches and dings in it. I tried my best, but I'm going to have to repaint that part. I always think these projects are going to be so quick and easy until I get halfway done with one and realize how time consuming it is. sigh....I never learn.
