St. Louis is opened again, although we’re still on a snow schedule. The major highways are clear. The downtown streets are not.
You can tell we’re not quite used to ALL this snow.
Temps have been a balmy 20 degrees as of late. Funny how your perspective on what’s cold changes when your high temps have been below zero.
The kids have yet to go back to school. An exciting two week winter break has turned into a humdrum three week boredom fest. I feel a bit ashamed that we’re not as tough as the Minnesotans. 12 inches of snow would have been a slight hiccup for them..
I saw this going around FB, and I thought, it’s not ME that would be out there, it’s my kids. They are SO ready to go back to school
I, on the other hand, am craving boredom. While the family has been cooped up all week, watching movies and sleeping late, I have been traveling back and forth to work, working shifts late into the evening. I drag my weary self to the couch around 11:30 pm, veg out with you guys, then crawl into bed only to start all over again the next day.
All of this has led me to finally hit the check-out button on the Southwest website. Two tickets are reserved for me and the Hubs to fly into Tampa in just a few short weeks. Four nights and five days of glorious sun and warmth and NO COMMUTE. Well, at least no commute to work. We plan to drive up and down the gulf shore looking for our someday home.
It can’t happen too soon.
