Truth be told it is light flurries right now, but expected to close down much of the state by about 2PM. The ensuing shut down of businesses & activation of snow day policies has left me comfortably at home, still in my PJ’s, with the entire day ahead of me and I am…..paralyzed. I don’t know what to do (or not do) first. I have so many options that I instead of being gridlocked in traffic, I’m blocked with indecision. I like the feeling. As much as I thought I loved snow days as a kid, the same event as an adult is intoxicating.
Meanwhile, I’m trying not to think about my front steps looking the way they did after the last storm (see picture), and the inevitable tunneling out the basement door like a mole. Right now the coffee pot is full, the electric blanket on my bed is still turned on, and I’m absolutely convinced I will not be setting any land/speed records for accomplishing anything of substance. I might sew, I might read, I might veg and watch a movie. Maybe I’ll make cinnamon rolls.
Unfortunately, if I don’t work, I don’t get paid. I can make up the hours later this week. But the actual cost of having a day where I can do (or not do) anything I want….. priceless.
