Knock on wood, but according to the local forecasts here in New England, there are no snowstorms on the horizon for the remainder of the week. We hate to curse ourselves, but that might actually mean our children will have (drumroll please)… a full week of school. This after about six consecutive weeks with at least one snow day. Gina’s daughter, Katie, summed it up best when she said, “Mom, we might have school every day this week. I don’t know if my body can handle that.”
Our kids have had so much time off this year that it’s prompted us to make some tough household decisions. “Look kids. You’re not pulling your weight around here. Your father and I think you need to get a job and start paying rent.”
There’s no question, the snow days have been tough for us all. However, we have noticed one positive thing about all this time off — it’s greatly reduced the number of bad news calls we’ve received from the school.
“Gene, I crunched some numbers and the bad news school calls are down 34% since last year.”
Have your children had school cancelled due snow this year? And if so, what survival suggestions do you have, short of snowshoeing your way out of the house?
