Today I celebrate the cold weather.
Ouch. Did I just say that out loud?
As we were driving home from the mall last night, we looked up at the temperature on the rear view mirror only to find that it said -11. My six year old was just so impressed that it was a negative number. My husband and I? Not so much impressed. In fact, I almost started to complain. Almost.
But, then it got me thinking. Here in upstate NY we have had the past week off for mid-winter recess or "February Recess" as we call it. Although I squeezed in four doctor appointments and bunch of little things on my "to-do" list, I just hadn't felt very accomplished.
Insert my celebration.
Thanks to the cold weather I was able to squeeze in my #OLW of want. This past week brought below zero temps, but it also brought me the opportunity to do what I wanted to do...and that was stay cozy, inside with my two boys. We slowed down the pace. Heck, almost to a down right lazy speed at times. That's unheard of around here. Jammies till 2pm. Legos strewn about. Pokemon cards just about everywhere. Each evening as we cleaned up, I felt thankful for the chance to be home with them this week.
That is why I'm celebrating the cold temps this week.
If you can't beat 'em- join 'em!
