The older I get, the more I realize what hermit I actually am. I’ve written before about being non-social and it takes a whole lot for me to work up the guts to go out to parties and fun events but once I do I always enjoy myself. Alt Summit was a big thing for me to work up the guts to go to but I’m so happy I did. I’m still sorting through photos and notes and will post about it soon, I promise.
Over the weekend we got a lot of snow and it has continued through today as well. After putting on my big girl panties and being brave enough to be social for 4 days at Alt, I feel like I deserve a little hermit time to recover. I can’t think of a better time to snuggle up and stay in than when big drifts of snow are forming outside. I’m pretty sure if I didn’t have kids to take to school I’d just stay in the house wearing sweat pants all January. Snow is not fun to drive in, it takes a lot of work to get everyone and their boots, hats, coats, etc. out the door for anything, and I’d much rather enjoy the clean white snow from my window inside my warm house.
I can only recall two days when school was cancelled due to snow and one of them was when I was in college. It takes a massive dump of snow all night long to make that happen in Utah. Sometimes I wish it happened more often so the kids and I could all snuggle up together, sip hot chocolate, and spend the day watching the snow pile high around the house without having to venture out into it.
Maybe one of these days I’ll declare a family snow day myself, just for fun.
What about you? Do you prefer snow from the indoors or are would you rather be out in it, maybe skiing or snowboarding?
