Why I have a love/hate relationship with snow

Things I love about snow:

  • it makes the world feel magical!
  • it’s so pretty
  • it brings unexpected 3 day weekends

My lovely snow-covered front yard

Things I don’t love about snow (I can’t quite get to “hate”):

  • it makes the house feel cold
  • unexpected 3 day weekend = messed up unit plan, and we all know how much I love when my plans get messed up
  • the gym is closed, and I was really looking forward to getting into a routine*

The best thing about this snow day compared to last year’s was that at least I had food in the house.  I’m pretty sure at one point last year I had flour, cereal, and some random type of pasta, and absolutely nothing else.  It was pathetic.

For the most part, I was perfectly content being stuck in the house yesterday.  I watched TV, read my book, and was pretty much completely unproductive.  For me, that all adds up to a great day!

*Note: I typed this up in the afternoon and a little bit later I got a text message from my trainer telling me to bundle up and take a brisk 30 minute walk around the neighborhood since the gym was closed.  This woman is AWESOME.
