Today schools were still closed. And guess what? They will be closed again tomorrow.

This is good and bad. Good for many, many, many reasons. Bad for just two.

One, Morgan Kate and I are way off schedule. We are really enjoying hooting with the owls and sleeping in most of the morning. Our sleep and wake clocks were designed exactly alike. Two, I'm desperately missing my "stay-at-home-mom" days. My heart is longing for them.

Today was perfect, other than the fact that Travis had to return to work. This morning we slept in and actually took our time getting ready. MK got up and we both ate breakfast. Well, actually she ate breakfast and I drank coffee. I don't typically eat breakfast. But don't you dare worry. I make up for it the rest of the day. We played and read books and then I decided to shower. We played some more and then I put on my make-up. After cutting play dough into tiny, tiny little pieces all over my bedroom floor we headed out to meet Kristen and Asher for lunch. The roads may or may not have been as "dethawed" as I thought they would be. But nonetheless, we made it and had a great time. After our lunch date, we headed back home for nap time. Well, actually Morgan Kate napped and I cleaned out our closet. HUGE job. And then I even had enough energy to tackle our bathroom and begin dinner. 

I liked so much about our day. I liked sleeping in and not being up hours before the sun rose. I liked taking my time. It was a leisure day and I liked that. I liked playing and reading with my baby girl. I liked meeting good friends for lunch. I liked getting things done around the house. I liked having enough energy to get more than one thing done. I liked playing with play dough. I liked seeing my puppies snuggled up on the rug. I liked holding and kissing my girl whenever I felt like it. I liked snacking on brownies. I liked being home.

It was a great day. And I'm holding tightly to every minute of our "snow days". I know they will be gone in a blink of the eye.
