Day 2 - More snow, less fun!

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Yep, another freaking snow day!

Keira's school was closed, meaning I'm home with her all day as she gets antsy about going places and generally in a bad mood. I had to reschedule clients and occupy a toddler all day. I love spending time with her, but being locked in all day just me and her doesn't always make for the most pleasant of times.

Plus she's taken to pointing at the TV and screaming "MA! MA! MA!" Nope that's not "mama," that's what she calls Mickey Mouse. She takes OnDemand quite literally. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on Keira's demand. It's tempting on days like yesterday to just let her veg out with Minnie, but I try to limit the TV. Still, we ended up watching three episodes scattered throughout the day.

I worked when she napped, then cooked dinner, and worked more after she went to bed, and I was just about to get on the treadmill, when I just snapped, "no mas" and crawled into bed with a book. I don't regret it, actually. I needed to decompress without the buzzing of the 'mill.

Food? Eh. It wasn't horrible, but I always tend to eat more when I'm stuck at home.

Today will be better.

Sorry for the snow day. It really screws with routine. I can't believe she's a toddler already!

    Being a mommy is such a hard job! Sounds like you did great with the situation you were given. Take what you want "On Demand" - whether that's the book or the 'mill.

    One day is one day. I feel you - I would be horribly depressed if I had to deal with another snow day - so kudos to you for not collapsing in a pile of chocolate and wine, which is what I would have done.

    Taking one night off from the treadmill won't hurt, so long as you get back to your routine (both the exercise and food) the next day. Besides, snow days like that don't happen everyday. Or, at least, let's hope not!

    We all have days like that. Glad you could realize when enough is enough and distress.

    I'm glad you survived your snow day. there seems to have been quite a few this year. I completely understand eating more when you are stuck at home and inside. It happens to me too. I think I end up eating because I am bored and have easy access to food. It doesn't help that small children seem to need to eat more often and I take cues to eat then too. They can't eat alone. :)

    You are Wonderwoman, my dear. You just make the best of the day/situation with what you are given. You've certainly got a lot going on, so it's good that you are prioritizing. :)

    When you're out of your routine it always tends to be more of a challenge. Sounds like you managed quite well. You can do this, and I'm with you on the snow - we had it yesterday too, and possibly more tomorrow.
