This has got to stop.

Day Two and the kids could have gone to school today.  Guess who is elected to stay home on a day such as today?  The person with the lesser job, that’s who. 

Oh the joys of being home on a snow day. 

I will be the first to admit that I am not a cook.  I think cooking is highly overrated, at least on a personal level.  I love to watch cooking shows.  I love to eat.  I love for someone else to cook it.  And clean it up, for that matter.  But me, as a cook?  Nah. 

So on a snow day, when I’m pretty limited as to what I can do to keep myself from losing my everloving mind, I sometimes venture into the kitchen.  I’m always surprised to find that my hand-me-down 25-year-old stove works.  Oh, the things that come out of the kitchen when I actually have time to slow-cook!  Meatloaf, pot roast, homemade soup, from-scratch sweetbreads and cupcakes.  My husband, unaccustomed to such things as a ready dinner when he comes home in the evening, often wonders if he’s living a Twilight Zone episode. 

Seriously, y’all, I am going to weigh 500 pounds before spring gets here. 

I have not heard if school will be in session tomorrow, but my waistline is seriously hoping it will.
