Will Work For Quiet

So i think i am the only person in the world who is excited to go to work. I mean really excited. Work is my break from the kids and although i would much rather be at a nice restaurant, having a fantastic meal, work will do.

When i am at work i don't have to talk to anyone. I can do my job while being in complete silence. When i do talk to someone it is, at least, an adult i am talking to and not a child. I can keep my nose to the grindstone and get it done all while being in my own head and not having to yell "NO", "STOP", "DON'T" every 5 minutes.

I don't mean to sound like i don't love my kids or like i just wanna run away but i do sometimes. Sometimes i need some me time and that is what work is for me. Making salsa in that little shop is my ME time. I get to focus on what i am doing and it doesn't involve wiping a nose, butt, or anything else of a disgusting nature. I can relax and sing along to the radio or joke with the other girls i work with. No matter what i don't have to yell and that is amazing to me.

On a different note, it snowed last night. I mean really snowed (or at least for us it was really snowing). We got 3 inch in my yard of the fluffiest white snow. It is still snowing now on and of and is suppose to do that all day. I love the snow and it makes the cold worth it.

I wish the kids weren't all snotty because i would love to let them go outside and play in it. It is so rare that we actually get snow anymore. When i was a keep we use to get feet at a time and now we are luck if we get a foot total all winter. We use to have to get a foot before we even got a 2 hour delay at school and now they get out for 3 inches. Things have changed.

My kids are so amazed by the snow. More amazed than i ever was. Probably because they never see it like i did. I was use to 3 foot of snow and i loved it but it wasn't exciting. Phabian exclaimed last night, "This is the biggest snow i have ever sawed," and outside of the bad grammer he was slightly right.

So here is to snow angels and 3 foot of snow. I hope you enjoy it for those of you who have it.

Oh yea don't forget to pop over to my research post and leave me a comment. I am still looking for all the participants i can get.
