White death. . . Snowmageddon. . . An Event. . . The Situation. . . call it what you will. . .
It’s supposed to snow. . . a lot. Ice, too. Ice. . . Ugh.
I’ve mentioned before that when it snows I become a snow-widow. Chad disappears for a few days to rescue homeowners and business owners from the heavy white stuff, while we are left at home to fill the hours.
I’m not a big fan of snow. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s beautiful. It’s just that it’s so incredibly cold. Cold and I do not get along. Seriously, after just a few minutes outside my lips turn an ugly blue color and my hands and feet become numb and have a sick waxy appearance. It’s about that time that the shivering starts. Not a simple vibration of the shoulders shivering, but an entire body shaking that mimics the dancing you’d find at the center of a disco dance floor. And there may have been a time or two when the cold brought me to tears. Nope, not a fan of snow. I much prefer to view it from this angle. . .
I don’t plan to be outside for much longer than it will take to shovel the driveway. So, I’m looking for indoor activities that might be fun, creative, and engaging for kids. What did you do when you were young? What did you or do you do with your kids? If you don’t have kids, what kinds of activities would you plan if you did?
I’m desperate here. . . help?
