Change of Plans

I was thinking I'd probably be doing some more shoveling today, but I've changed my mind. The snow stopped, and it's really not all that deep out there - so it won't be too bad. So, the kids can get out and do it. It's their turn. And they better not complain, because it's nothing compared to what their father and I did this morning.

Beth hasn't actually gotten out of bed today. Can you believe that? 2:30pm and the lazy bum is still in bed. I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with the fact that she's had to work until 11:30pm all week and then drive home on wintry roads. It seems she gets to drive in all the bad weather. I haven't had a chance to ask her how the roads were last night because, if she's not getting home until midnight, I'm not waiting up. I think she'll be really happy when the holiday is finally over and her schedule can get back to normal.

Anyway, when she finally decides to get up, she'll probably think she needs to go see Tim or something, so she's gonna need to shovel the driveway before she can go anywhere. While the kids shovel, I'll be making the soup for dinner. Winter means soup, right?


  1. How can anyone stay in bed until 2:30pm? I just can't fathom such a thing. The whole day would be shot. Tell Beth I said she's a lazy bum! :)

  2. Two of my kids can quite easily stay in bed like Beth.. I don't think I ever did and I can't imagine doing so unless I was really really unwell..


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
