OK..I confess that I was hoping for a snow day today. I live in Northeast PA for crying out loud!!! I want a snow day not because I like snow, but because I just want a day to be home! I love being home. I have such a super busy schedule and I am not home enough. I can go, go, go, but after a while I just need to be home. Home is a place of comfort and security….I would like to say peace, but remember I have a 2 and 6-year-old and a puppy! Coming home can be challenging as the second I pull into the drive I see Jelly Bean (aka JoBo, JB, or Jell Bell….or Knucklehead) waiting for me in the window.That is the cute part, but coming into the house, not so cute. I get mauled. Everyday. Everytime. Jelly Bean jumps up, runs laps around the house and literally moves everything in the house in the process – rugs, couches, coffee tables…no joke. So….coming home is an adventure, but once home, I feel I can recharge and relax. A place to unwind, put on the jammies, have hot coffee and spend time with my funloving family. It doesn’t get better than that.
During my graduate studies at Millersville University, I had taken a personality class while working on my master’s degree and a favorite teacher of mine Dr. Woo was talking about introversion and extroversion. We took a little measure to determine if we were introverted or extroverted…I fell equally in the middle so this offered no insight to me. She then said the way to determine the tie is to ask yoursef….do you recharge from being around lots of people or by being home…well, that made it easy. I suppose I have a smidge more introversion in me than extroversion…I love being with people, but love to come home and have to do so after running around a lot….otherwise I feel totally sapped. I read a quote this week which will be my inspirational quote for the day from Dietrich Bonhoeffer (my husband is so proud of me!) – it goes like this:
|Snow Day December 2010 – Ana looks like Randy from
She can’t put her arms down!!!
|Emma in her snowfort last year!|
I think that is beautiful. So no snow day to rest in my sanctuary…well, I suppose I should be happy to not have to worry about driving in it, scraping the car, watching the forecast and so on…I could do without the snow, but bring on the snow days!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
