(Sung to the tune of Happy Birthday): Happy snow day to me/Happy snow day to me/Happy snow day to me/Happy snow day to me.
We had a glorious snow day today. I can’t tell you how badly I needed this. The world is so quiet and peaceful, I can feel my soul rejoice. We had about six inches of snow. The snow plow didn’t even come through until around 9am. We lounged awhile then played in the snow. My brother-in-law, who lives down the street, came and used his snow blower to clear our driveway and my son, bless his heart, shoveled like a maniac to get the front walk done. Around noon, the sun had melted what the snowplow had left behind and we met some friends for lunch at a pizza buffet. After lunch I picked up my mom and we did a little shopping. Now I am home, relaxing with my son. My daughter is spending the night at my parents’ house.
My husband is at work. I really needed this day away from work and away from him. I can’t begin to explain what is going on with him. It just hurts so bad. He seems to think that we’ll ignore the issue once again and go about our lives. I can’t do it anymore. I can’t continue to live in fear that he is going to try to force me to do something I don’t want to do. This is a battle we have been fighting for almost 4 years. I have begged, pleaded, threatened – all for nothing. I don’t know what else to do.
For now, I will enjoy my son and relaxing. We’re going to eat popcorn, watch The Incredibles and play board games.
