Ice Day Tomorrow

Well, they’ve called it:  my school district says no school tomorrow due to winter weather event!

I don’t know how much ice this “event” will actually bring, but I’m grateful for the very threat of ice if it means an unexpected break from a too-hectic, too-stressful week.  It means staying up late tonight and sleeping in tomorrow, followed by some much-needed cleaning of house, grading of papers, and planning of lessons.  I’ll clean out our fridge and pantry, making room for our new whole, unprocessed grocery store buys.  Out with the old way of eating, in with the new. It will be that much easier to put together good meals with organized shelves and bins.

But all that is tomorrow.  For now, I’ll set aside the school bag (and this computer) and turn on the television.  Should we continue season two of “Bates Motel” or season three of “House of Cards”?  Maybe we’ll watch a little of both!

Ice, ice baby…
