A Poem

This poem is inspired by my principal, who had us start our own poem as a staff about this.  I call it, "And Then it Snowed."

I used to wait for my phone to ring telling me we were off school...and then it snowed.
I used to wait until Summer to clean out my kitchen cabinets...and then it snowed.
I used to send my son to preschool instead of homeschooling him....and then it snowed.
I used to have a dog that went off the porch to go potty...and then it snowed.
I used to go to work in the morning...and then it snowed.
I used to think I wasn't a creative and crafty mom...and then it snowed (and I got desperate!)
I used to take our electricity (and heat) for granted...and then it snowed.
I used to make about one meal a week...and then it snowed.
I used to pray for a snow day...and then it snowed A LOT!

In all seriousness, I truly did love being home.  Caleb and I had such a good time doing crafts and baking (I went through A LOT of butter!)  It was just fun to have some good old fashioned family time.  Plus, I was caught up on the housework for once!!  I'm a homebody, so being snowed in didn't really bother me...too much!  :)
