I realized today that I won't be negatively affected by snow days this winter. The makeup days are scheduled while I'm still on maternity leave. I usually don't like taking days off for the weather because inevitably I end up snowed in at home alone while P is off at work. I get bored far too easily and end up either moping around or doing something stupid like painting a room the color of Crest.
However...we're supposed to get 4-8 inches of snow tonight and the windchill might be down to - 20 degrees AND I have a lot of stuff left to accomplish around the house. Perhaps a snow day is just the ticket. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
For other adoptive parents reading this, I'm curious about what you did in the week before traveling. We're not packed and the house isn't entirely ready, but I'm very anxious to get going. I'm as ready as I'll ever be. Let's go! Enough of daily life - I'm ready for a change! Did you do anything fun or special to mark your last days without children? I'm looking for some good (and not too expensive) ideas.
