well snow day turned into snow week and it wasn't the horror i expected. the kids and i had the week off in which to plug in the annual prospera sledding/snowboarding trek, homemade cocoa, a bit of work from home, and plenty of outside play alternating with everyone on their own piece of technology vegging the day away.
and the week ended with a miracle road snow melt just in time to be a part of a fundraiser for a family dear to my heart.
and now rest day continues -- always the perfect ending to every weekend.
newly found lifestyle restrictions, but taking it out of my diet seems to be working for me (along with another list of things i love -- citrus fruits, wine tipped cigarillos (i know, ridiculous -- but they go well with the occasional wine pairing ;), and milk. it's been an easy adjustment, surprisingly. i'm ascribing that to the relief of "something helps me feel better" and that i didn't dare break in the coffee machine no one seems to use at work ;)
you know i had to find a replacement crutch (something to write and read beside) and i have -- chai tea with vanilla rice milk. if you have delish coffee alternatives i'd love to hear them.
