You’ve probably heard of this little storm we’re having down here in South Carolina. School was canceled on Friday and again today. We’ve already received a call that it’s canceled for tomorrow too. My kids are getting an unscheduled five day fall break…
We haven’t gone anywhere, so I don’t know how bad the roads are around our house, but by just looking out the windows it appears fine. Aaron worked on Friday, and had the weekend off. He was supposed to go back in tonight at 11, but they just called and said Tuesday night because of flooding.
Normally I don’t mind when the kids don’t have school. I almost prefer it, because they give Bacon someone to play with. But since I can’t send the outside, everyone’s going a little stir crazy.
This is why I’m so thankful for Netflix! If there’s ever been a reason to binge watch some shows, it’s now. My current pick is Haven. I’m not sure how I never heard of this before, but I started watching it and I’m sucked in. Then I found out it is loosely based on a Stephen King novel, The Colorado Kid. I’ve read almost everything he’s written- except that. So of course I promptly grabbed it for my Kindle. I’ll let you know how it is if I can stop watching the show.
But binge watching once the kids are in bed is hardly unusual for me- however, letting them binge watch stuff all day long is not as common. With all the rain making them stir crazy, I owe my sanity to Rescue Bots, a favorite of both the twins and Bacon. They also keep watching How to Train Your Dragon- both the movie and the show- Race to the Edge.
We’re really lucky that our biggest concern is whether or not the rain will let up before we run out of milk, or maybe that our mail is delayed. We have plenty of food and haven’t lost power. No water is leaking into our house or anything like that. The kids will just have to make up a few days of school, no big deal.
Is anyone else local reading? Are you OK?
