There’s still something to be said about waking up and unexpectedly being able to stay home, snowed in and toasty. It never gets old.
Today was one of those days. Sure, I had work to do but taking a couple of calls and putting out a few fires from home is SO much easier than having to fight traffic and idiots* and mother nature for 2-3 hours to do it instead. I sat around and played games, watched games being played, hung out and just had a good time in general. Even hockey practice tonight had an air of that snow day magic. Nobody was tense, it was laid back and it was finally fun again. Even being there for two hours was easy.
Now a couple glasses of wine and some trashy TV provide the perfect nightcap to a great day.
*My all-time favorite quote about driving, by the way, comes from Wil Wheaton. He says, “everyone is an idiot and is actively trying to kill you.”
