Good morning! I should be in school, but rather I’m curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee watching The Bachelor, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Vanderpump Rules because…
We have a cold day. Or a wind day. Whichever works. It’s probably not necessary, but I’ll take it. Most of the surrounding counties are also closed or have a 2-hour delay… With the exception of DC, who’s schools actually opened earlier than usual so students didn’t have to wait outside in the bitter cold. The news reported that DC officials decided to keep schools open because approximately 70% of students depend on free and reduced meals. I bet the students are totally bummed, but thinking about kids at home (possibly alone while their parents work) in the freezing cold, unfed, is heartbreaking.
The temperatures are not nearly as cold as they are in the mid-west, but they’re predicted to be record-breaking for the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. Over the past few days animal shelters have offered to take in dogs/cats/small pets, shelters have offered additional beds, and even local agencies have been delivering warm soup and hot drinks to the homeless. It’s touching reading about all of the support being provided to those in need. Even small acts of kindness can have big impacts!
Since I wasn’t planning on having a free day, I don’t have anything exciting planned… The gym for a run and BodyFlow, some cleaning, blog work, and maybe a nap?
eye catching (it’s a cereal, I promise!)
yearly memories (yes, I bought a 2014 ornament because they were on sale!)
Charlie had to go to the vet last night for a shot. Maybe it’s his carefree personality or maybe it’s because he hasn’t had anything terrible happen to change his mind (thank goodness!), but he loves the place! Opportunities to socialize, treats are freely given out, and everyone coddles him. From his perspective, there isn’t much to dislike… Except the shots.
