You see, I'm kind of like Monk in some ways, as I've mentioned before. I'm still not quite a "go with the flow" kind of gal. I dream of a world that is orderly and goes as planned. Preferably with big black arrows telling you which way to go and what choice to make. Ah, wouldn't it be just great?!
But instead, we got some insane amount of snow and snow drifts that made Tuesday a surreal day. Four hours of lessons cancelled, trips to and from Juliette's school only to find her teacher couldn't make it in. Battling whirls of flurries and bitter wind and sidewalks full of white stuff. As we tried to make our way to the school with the little Tunisian mom in her black veil and her kids in their parkas, we all giggled and marvelled at our strange white world.

He stayed home Wednesday since the roads were still terrible that way and built a mega snow "mouse" with Juliette.
Meanwhile my colleagues and I carpooled into work not knowing if the highway would still be blocked on the way back. We saw big trucks and the poor cars stuck in between them at a standstill on the other side of the highway. The truckers and drivers were standing by their cars talking since there was nothing better to do. Luckily the highway cleared when it was time for us to go home in the evening.
Then in the wee hours of Thursday morning Juju called out and I felt her burning forehead. She had a fever so I had to keep her at home. Four more hours of lessons lost, salesguy not so happy, but what can you do. My little girl has to come first. She was a little droopy in the morning but back to her dolls and stuffed animals in the afternoon. After a nice nap, that is...
And in between it all there was a cancelled job interview (due to the weather) and issues with the loan that seem to have been ironed out... we hope. Sometimes life is just so... confusing. And it can be too much for a non-spontaneous girl to cope with. Do you think there are night classes on how to deal with life? Sign me up.
