All dressed up with no place to go

This day is almost as good as being 8 and hearing that school's been cancelled!

I was supposed to have an outdoor photo shoot for a landscaping story this morning. It was a rush-around morning, getting showered and dressed. I had heard on the late news last night that there was a chance for snow in some parts of the state, but as of 3:30 a.m., when I finally crashed, there wasn't any sign of it here.

So I dress warmly, if not professionally, and open the drapes in my living room as I gathered up my note-taking materials. And then, I stopped. And laughed.

My car in the driveway is playing hide-and-seek. "You can't seeeeeeeee me," I hear it taunting me. "Don't look! You can't seeeeeeeee me!"

There was no point in even opening the door. I made the necessary calls to make sure everyone was on the same page about cancelling the appointment and trying again on Monday.

Now, here I am, all cozy, warm and freshly showered and made up. Too bad no one can see me!

So I will have a great day all alone, sipping cocoa, playing on the computer, reading...

Nanny nanny boo-boo to those of you who had to go to work anyway!! THIS is why I DON'T make the big bucks any more!

Ha! Dr. ER is worried that the weather will keep Bird from being able to come home tomorrow on her birthday. I, of course, am hopin' it gets worse so I can four-wheel-driuve my way to Stillwater and back to rescue her. :-)

I'm not jealous of the day off, I want to play in the snow. Hope you had a great day :).
