In the past two weeks I have had quite a few days off from work due to ice and snow. Last week was an ice event and I had a day and a half off from work. Did absolutely nothing of productivity. Wanted to blog but at the same time didn’t.
This week, today is Thursday and I’ve been home since Tuesday. Cabin fever is an understatement. Thankfully, I’ve had opportunities to get out of the house to run to the grocery store twice this week. Tuesday morning when it was beginning to snow and yesterday afternoon after a lot had melted in front of the storm that was to come last night. They called for more than a few inches of the white stuff.
I expect nothing more than a delay for tomorrow if that. And I’m counting down till Spring to say the least.
But since I have a last day at home, and I’m pretty well rested, it’s time to tackle some areas of the home.
After reading Erin’s blog post this morning, I was inspired to stop threatening the kids and make good on my threats and do my own cleaning of their room. See, they fail to realize that it’s a privilege to have toys. A child doesn’t have to have a room full of toys. I’m tired of yelling. So since I had a few minutes on hand, a burst of energy, I have thrown away 3 large shopping bags of toys, and I’ve set up about 3 boxes of toys to donate. Some are in great enough condition to sell, but I’m just gonna give them away.
I feel like I’ve made such a huge accomplishment! Just by taking about 30 minutes to really just get in there, in the zone, really helped me to feel less overwhelmed.
I have a few more things I want to organize/purge of my own today. I have some reading to do and some writing. Gonna try to eek out as much productivity as I can today.
It feels really good : )
What do you do on your snow days??
