My Husband Went to Work And All I Got Was This Lousy Polar Vortex
Boy, that was a long “break”. I missed school. Did you miss school? Polar Vortex, you don’t need to come around and remind me how awesome Arlo’s teachers are or how Madison’s Preschool of the Arts is a gift (for ALL of us) so SHUT IT. Go away and never return.
Here are some snapshots from this record-breaking break. I shot frequently and with great abandon lest I became too mired down in the difficult moments of the mundane. I hope you enjoy.
We went old school.
We went new school.
But cubbies and slides were the places to be
as was time spent with friends.
A gross misrepresentation of that time spent:
This is more accurate:
Seriously. We were home for a long time.
The Subaru did what we were all thinking and saved us from ourselves,
so instead I could build this just before returning to school and normalcy:
Had I done enough for my children? Would they remember my short-tempered, cabin-feverish barks and bites inflicted throughout the eye of this godforsaken storm? Who knows? I built train tracks. Train tracks don’t ask silly questions. Train tracks don’t remember. Train tracks just move trains.
Happy Weekend Dear Readers! If you need me I’ll be OUTSIDE.
