Today Is A Good Day

I slept a lot yesterday (had three naps for a total of 3 1/2 hours of sleep during the day) and last night I fell asleep on the couch at 9:30pm and slept till 8am.

I awoke this morning to 4 inches of snow outside and there was a message on the answering machine that school was canceled for my boys.  As I went for a cup of coffee (decaf) I noticed my oldest was wearing his pajamas inside out because he heard from his teacher that it could bring good luck for not having school today.  Oh how I wish life were that simple.

After breakfast my boys and I got geared up to go outside and clear some snow off the driveway.  Thankfully we have a snowblower so it made for light work.  However scraping the driveway clean was laborious as the snow was wet and heavy.  I guess you could say that was my workout for today.

After an hour or two outside I came in and decided it was time to clean the house (ok the main living area).  I was going crazy at the clutter, toys and dust bunnies that were everywhere.  I felt like our home was under attack by all this 'stuff'.  When clutter and 'stuff' gets under my skin I will stop at nothing until it's all in order.  I tend to be an all or nothing person.  I had both boys help by picking up there toys and drawings off the floor and table.

It's now 2:14 and I haven't had a nap.  I have energy and it feels great!

Tomorrow I hope to enjoy some of the winter wonderland by going on a hike.

Today is a good day.
