SO…I was planning on posting this the day I wrote it (last Thursday), and I was hoping to include some snowy pictures that I took that day as well. Unfortunately, I’m having trouble inserting my own pictures here due to an error message. SO, forgive me for a blog filled with text and without pictures to break up the monotony, but if I wait to post this until I figure out how to add my own pictures, it could be spring!
SO, we finally had a great, big Snow Day here on Long Island…yeah! Every winter, when there’s snow in the forecast I tell everyone I hope it’s a big one. Just one big one, that’s all. I love that feeling of everyone being home, not being able to rush off anywhere, and having some forced R & R. No need to feel guilty because you simply can’t go anywhere if you wanted to! No school (I think I’m even more excited than the kids) and no rushing off to work.
Now for us adults, that doesn’t mean we can’t do work from home, especially with today’s technology, but how nice is it to be able to do it relaxing by the fire and having your loved ones around? I know you won’t accomplish what you would have if you were in the office, but that’s okay…we’re all entitled to a Snow Day! (I don’t know what you’d call it if you live in Florida, for example, but I suppose you have your Hurricane Days?) Anyway, I was scheduled to participate in my first “webradio” show and since all I had to do was call in to be interviewed, the show still went on! I was interviewed by Darlene Johnson, of Pear Core Solutions, an employment agency, on how to organized your job search. Here’s the link to the program: www.blogtalkradio.com/help-wanted
Well, ONE snow day is exciting, but now we’ve drifted into two and now it’s just annoying. Today we’re (I use the “we” loosely, since that’s code for my husband) digging out from at least a foot of snow “the day after” and its slow going…and still no school…oh joy. Before cabin fever can set in (although I know it has for some already), this is a great day to get to some of those rainy/snowy day “projects” that we promise ourselves we’re going to get to. Whether its cleaning a basement we never make the time for, or sorting and storing pictures, this is the perfect time for these kinds of “if I ever get to it” projects.
I’m not saying to spend the whole day doing one of these projects, but even an hour or two, will make a difference in how you feel. To find yourself with time you didn’t think you’d have and to accomplish, or at least get started on a project you didn’t think would get done, can do wonders for your sense of well-being (not to mention your space).
SO…next time you’re shopping for winter supplies, like batteries and candles, remember to get some photo album refills and green garbage bags, so you’ll be ready for the next Snow Day!
Let me know what you like you to do on your Snow Days…
All the best,
