ask, and it will be given to you

Today we woke up to completely white-out conditions. A pure blizzard. It was snowing like crazy. We went to bed with rain and woke up to SNOW blowing side ways. School announced a two hour delay and then an hour later they cancelled it altogether. SNOW DAY!

Karsen was so sad. She exclaimed, "But this is the outfit I was going to wear today!!!" I looked at her and calmly told her she would still need to be dressed, and that outfit would be just fine for a snow day. She stomped away to sulk....and I chuckled. Then we told Dylan.....he had the totally opposite reaction. He starts screaming and cheering "Yes! Yes! Yes!"

My children are polar opposite. LOL.

As for me, of course I started worrying about my rotation and wondered if my preceptor would be mad and fail me for the month. !!! When I called her, she was so great. She said she already knew our school district was cancelled and she had been brainstorming a project I could work on from home. Sigh....YAY!

It has been a good snow day so far! I cleaned like I haven't cleaned in about 3 months! No exaggeration. I have been on 3 months straight since November 1st, and you could look in every single nook and cranny of our house and tell.

For lunch, we decided the roads looked passable, so we ventured out for milkshakes and cheeseburgers.... Karsen's idea. It was a good one. Turns out she doesn't mind snow days, if she can get a cookies n cream milkshake that is bigger than her head for lunch!


I must confess....I actually went to bed last night and prayed for a blizzard. I am exhausted.  I am worn down on every level like I have never been before. I just feel overwhelmed. My entire BODY is screaming STOP! SLOW DOWN! CHILL OUT, WOMAN! I really, desperately needed a lazy kinda day. I was very thankful for answered prayers when I woke up this morning.

P.S. Only ONE rotation stands between me and graduation. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Matthew 7:7  Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

So glad you got a break. I hope the effects of it last through the entire last rotation.
