The heaviness of my sweet puppy curled up by my side only added to the heat I felt as I was wrapped up in my favorite cozy blanket having fallen asleep on the couch, yet again. I rose to head towards bed and gave a quick glance outside to see if the forecasted weather had arrived. Groggily, I peeked through the blinds and noted that there was nothing in sight and headed for the last few hours of sleep.
Mere hours later, I was ready to prepare for the day thinking through the class activities, the evening’s meetings and instinctively checked my phone, which had been sitting there quietly charging all night. That beautiful Remind message saying to enjoy our day off was enough to perk me right up!
We enjoyed a solid hour of quiet and coffee in the dimly lit living room before the kids emerged from their rooms to share in the beautiful gift of our snow day.
