Snow Spa

This weekend, we received a record snowfall. The kids were ecstatic. The adults, while enjoying their glee, meditated on the dark side of record snowfalls: record shoveling sessions. However, after being indoors with the kids for the good part of two days, I chose to shovel the driveway to get some "me time." Extreme situations call for extreme measures.

It was strangely peaceful outdoors. Just me and the snow and the scraping of the shovel. Not exactly a pampering spa experience, but it saved my sanity just the same.

After about an hour, the kids came outside and played in the snow. We watched neighbors with their snowblowers and even a few ATVs with snow plows get to work up the street. While the kids body-slammed snowbanks and made a grotesquely misshapen snow man, I finished my Luddite snow removal project and surveyed my handiwork.

I am Mommy, hear me roar.
