Wednesday, March 21, 2018


They were calling for more wintry weather early this morning and I blew it off.  Picture me sticking my fingers in my ears and singing "lalalalalalalalalalalala"

Peter was adamant that his school would be cancelled.  I scoffed and harshly informed him to get his homework/project-that-he-left-until-the-last-minute (when will he ever learn?) finished before he went to bed.  And he did (as far as I know).

I woke up this morning at 5:30 AM only to discover that Sarah's school is going in on a 2 hour delay BUT Peter's school is CLOSED.

Now I'm worried about Sarah's 8th grade trip.  She is supposed to leave tomorrow morning at 0'dark-thirty to head to Charlottesville,VA to visit Monticello, James Madison's birthplace, the Luray Caverns and the University of Virginia.  I checked the weather in Charlottesville and they are supposed to get 3-6 inches this morning.  If that happens there's a good chance her trip will have to be rescheduled.

She has been looking forward to this trip since the beginning of the school year because in her mind, once she got to this trip, 8th grade would be smooth sailing until June.  And she's sort of correct except that there's still a lot of work to be done before June.  But she's had this trip in her head since the first day of school and an "if I can just make it to the trip I'll be fine" attitude.  Hopefully they can still go on their trip but if not the teacher assured me that they will reschedule it.

My plan of sitting at the computer all day and finishing the taxes has been slightly derailed now.  Because once Peter gets up, he will be on the computer completing another project that he has to finish that's due later this week and playing video games, watching you tube videos, and generally goofing off.  Luckily, I'm almost done with them and there's still 3 weeks left until April 15th so I still have pleeeeeeeeenty of time. 

Hmmmmm....wonder where Peter gets his why-do-it-today-when-I-can-do-it-tomorrow attitude? 

Yesterday I spent the better half of the day figuring out our itinerary for our trip to Savannah.  The kids get two weeks off for spring break and we decided to spend some time next week in Savannah. We've never been there and thought it would be a nice little vacation.  But having never been there we don't know what to do or where to start.  So I cobbled together a loose itinerary for the 4 days we are there and I guess we will just hope for the best.  The weather forecast calls for a lot of rain so that's a bummer since we will be doing a lot of walking around.

In case anyone needs a Wally fix, here you go:

 He will literally curl up anywhere!

I can't imagine the weather you're having. I'm cheering for our weather to get warm enough to wear shorts. We should be there by t the weekend. We had spring break last week and it was cold until the last day, so I feel your pain. :/ Hang in there. We will all be sweating before we know it. lol

Oh gosh! You've had so much snow this year!! I can't believe it. At least Wally is cute! Hope you got your taxes figured out but you do have plenty of time.

I am DONE with winter and this ridiculous weather. I just looked at the extended forecast the other day and it calls for pretty much two weeks of rain. I can't even anymore.

I hope it clears up when you are in Savannah - I've not been and can't wait to here your about your trip.

A couple of years ago we did Monticello, James Madison's house, AND UVA (an unofficial campus visit). It was a good trip.

And you will like Savannah ... just walking around in the downtown neighborhoods is a delight.

It sure isn't looking like Spring! Hope that's the end of snow days for you.
Savannah sounds like a perfect break.
