Snow Day


Well, we had a snow day yesterday. All the kids got to stay home from school and spend the day within five feet of me at all times. There's a lot to love about a snow day. Inevitably, the giant plastic bin of snow clothes will throw up all over my living room and I will get to spend at least six hours bundling my kids up for the spectacular five minutes they will spend outside.Then I get to make five kinds of "hot food (we're freezing)" for lunch and then mop up all the melted snow and wash all the mildew snow clothes. Ahh, a snow day. Lovely.

I've decided I'm going to keep this blog going long after all this cancer drama is over. I love all of you too much and I don't want to lose touch with you. Your comments mean so much to me. I just hope without cancer I can still find something of interest to say. Also, I'm right in the middle of America, so if you're ever near St. Louis - call me. We'll go to lunch. You're my best friend.

OH, so THAT's what snow looks like... it's been so long I'm starting to forget. You're a great mom to do all of that with them. It's got to be exausting, but they'll always remember days like that Shel. Good for you for finding the energy to make it happen for them! Love ya!

P.S.
We hang on your every word, even if you think it's just boring stuff. Your creative writing abilities keep us all entertained. You paint a vivid picture and it's just fun to read. A trip to the store with Shelby is a "thing of interest" for us!

I'm so glad you're going to keep posting! And I can't believe I missed the snow day - looks like fun. Good thing Mason has plenty of sisters to practice his aim on.

I just absolutely love your sense of humor. The touch of ironi - I just love it! (Actually that kind of humor is known as typical Danish. Or at least that is what we think ourselves LOL! Maybe generations back there were some Danish people in your family?!).
Anyway - your description of a snow day is exactly how I feel about them too. Just love them....

(by the way - saw you comment about the Danish language which I use on my blog. Trust me - our language actually isn't that crazy. I think most kids over here learn it in 2-3 years...LOL! But I will leave you an English note on my next blog entry...)

Ahhh - you are just too fast. NOW there is a message for you on my blog :-)
Is there anywhere I can see your e-mail to drop you my adress?

It looks like fun. You are such a fun mom. We've had so much snow this year.

You say something interesting every time you put your fingers on the keypad. You're an incredibly talented writer and I ditto the comments above.

Shelbs, I love that you are the kind of person who can say "You're my best friend" to a thousand people and it would be true. I feel lucky to be among the ranks. You're my best friend too! I love you.

So glad you are going to keep the blog... I enjoy reading it at lunch (don't tell the boss I surf the internet at lunch)... a daily dose of humor, and I must say the post from your sister had me all choked up... God bless

For Shelby's Danish friend from Shelby's aunt: Since we research our ancestors, we know we have many Danish ancestors. Her great-grandfather on her father's mother's side was entirely from Danish immigrants. He had a very dry sense of humor that many people missed by we chuckle about still!
