Yes, I said snowed out. While everyone else in the entire Midwest had the foresight to be snowed IN today, Kimmie, Liberty and I are snowed out.

We woke up this morning and checked the news to see if Kimmie's school was closed today. The TV informed us that she had a two hour delay, so we faithfully dug ourselves out of the driveway, and slipped down the road. Jenny got stuck in a three foot snow drive that covered the span of one intersection, and Kimmie hopped out of the car in her tennis shoes (because she refuses to wear her snow boots) to push. It took about 10 minutes, during which time we saw not one fellow work/school-goer, but we finally made it through the intersection. Did this cause us to give up hope and return home? No! We chose to valiantly push onward.

I dropped Libby off at Rhonda's house, where Rhonda was surprised to see us, and Kimmie and I skidded on to my office. I planned to slalom her to school after the two hour delay had passed. We had been in the office about an hour when Craig's wife, Kathy, called. She informed me that Kimmie's school had changed from a two-hour delay to a closure, and that all other working moms had elected to stay home with their snowed in children. Oh, no, not I! I logically chose to bring my children out with me!

Now we have to see if we can make it back home.

ALSO: MY SISTER IS IN THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW HAVING MY VERY FIRST NIECE!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!! :-)
