Snow Day Magic
5:15 AM-The phone rings as I work. "Due to the forecast, Nashoba Regional School District is closed for the day." A free day to do whatever I want, whenever I want... snow day magic.
6:00 AM I go back to bed, but I don't fall back asleep. That's okay, though, because if I need to I can take a nap later on... snow day magic.
7:00 AM A Peloton bike boot camp complete with a cool down ride and a ten minute stretch because there's no need to hustle to get out the door... snow day magic.

Oh the magic of a snow day! I am crossing my fingers for one this Friday. Also, my husband and I LOVE New Amsterdam. So sad the show is over!

That all sounds about right. I had very little down time on my snow day, but it felt great to have the time and get so much done. Love the phrase snow day magic, and... so glad you're doing this! Be kind to yourself!
