Okay, I need more than a snow day...

So I wished for a snow day and I got a snow day. But I did not get the snow day that I had wanted. My version of the snow day involved sleeping in, having a yummy breakfast with the family while watching the snow fall. I'd stay in my jammies all day. I'd bake cookies and we'd have some sort of home-made soup for lunch. Together. We'd maybe watch a movie together and the snow would continue to fall. And everyone would be happy and thankful that we had a warm house and food to eat and enjoy one another's company.

Are you all laughing with me at this point? Because that is SO not the day that I got. Not even close.

Without going in to detail, suffice it to say that I feel thoroughly jipped. Last night I was talking to my sister in law about our upcoming beach trip for April and she had to tell me that they couldn't do it! I'm bummed, for sure, but totally understand because finances are tight for us as well. Okay, for those of you keeping count I've lost my peaceful snow day AND a beach vacation all in one day. Now what do I have to look forward to???

Oh, I know...NOTHING!

Nick was saying yesterday that he wished we could do another Disney trip before he turned 18. True, he just turned 17 like two weeks ago, but the boy likes to think ahead. And while I am all for it, I know that Frank will not be. This year was supposed to be the year of the beach. Frank's choice. No Disney. No castle. No Mickey. No magical memories. No skipping down Main Street U.S.A. No pictures with the characters. Sigh. But on the upside, I CAN have sand in my shoes, sunburn, and dead clams rotting in drawers (remember when Michael did that?). Oh, the fun. I don't know when we'll get to the beach, but that is our vacation this year one way or another.

Sigh. It's just not fair.

M-I-C....see ya real soon (maybe...)
K-E-Y....why? Because we like you (and want to hang with you again!)
M-O-U-S-E..........Stupid beach! Stupid not good snow day!!

Where, oh where, is the Disney lottery and why can't I win it??? How cool would that be?

I am with you on that snow day!! THAT would be the *ideal* snow day!

But instead, I have a muddy kitchen floor, wet, stinky snow clothes to dry for the 105th time. PLUS... I am EXHAUSTED from dressing the kids and myself, then going out to freeze and be wet for 30 minutes, then coming in a stripping myself and the kids and making hot cocoa and drying clothes and RE-dressing everyone...and on and on and on...Did I mention I do not like snow?? Let's skip Feb (along with my birthday..yikes!)and March and move right into April!! :)

hope you get that disney trip, girl!! good luck with that! :)

Wow!! that snow day scarred me so bad. It was so calm and "Norman Rockwell" and I was thinking what in the world happened to Stacey??? This is not funny, stressed or very entertaining.. Wew then we got to the real part.

Sorry about the beach and no disney? Maybe you could go the beach by disney and work both in??
Where there is a will there is a way. Best of luck with your vacation plans.
