Slump Day

So, day 6 of snow-inflicted confinement is the day where everyone finally gets on each others nerves to the point of wanting to run down the street screaming. I think I’m actually a bit beyond that point. Consider that I work at home, so we’ve all been together with the exception of brief relative-provided respites since last Thursday. The kids argued on and off all day long and this was one of the busiest days I’ve had in a while. Coffee was not enough to get through this one. All you can do is throw your hands in the air and hope for a better tomorrow!

I almost made it without hitting the insanity limit but the Lebanon Special School District really messed up my plans by cancelling school again for today. I took vacation yesterday expecting that it would be over. We’d goof off and today they would go back. But, noooooooo. I guess the desire to keep city and county school calendars in sync overrides the common sense that clear roads=school.

Maybe it is not all their fault. I think mother nature has really messed with administrators heads. We rarely see snow here now. Back when I was in elementary school, we had snow all the time. One year we had to go to school on Saturdays and almost until July because we missed so much. And, we went to school on every single day we could get there. If there was one half-way open lane in the road, school was open. Today, built-in snow days are rarely used so they take every chance they can to close it.

At least it’s not supposed to snow again until Friday night, Saturday, Saturday night, Monday afternoon, Tuesday and Wednesday.
