We made it home from New York ... finally. I made Jamie stop at a hotel in Charleston, WV last night instead of driving all the way home in one day (12 hours is just way too much sitting for a one-year-old, and me, for one day!) so we're home a bit later than what we planned on. Oh well, it was definitely worth it!
I hate getting home to a messy house (which it was, of course) and I HATE unpacking even more. There always seems to be way more fun things to do, like open mail and look through the Sunday paper, than unpack and tidy the house. aka: When we got home, there were about 15 boxes on the porch from a giant Discovery Toys order I placed before we left, plus, of course, other random things I had ordered, plus our regular mail. Overwhelming... yet WAY more fun than unpacking ... which I still have not done!!
On top of everything else, it started to spit some sort of icy, white precipitation once we were about an hour away from home. Great. I thought leaving New York would get us away from the snow and freezing weather.... apparently not. They are forecasting about 6 inches and maybe some ice over the next day or two ... but we'll see what happens! I'm always of the opinion that the further out they forecast bad weather, the more UNLIKELY it is to actually occur! This reminds me, I need to go join all the other crazies at the supermarket in a few minutes because we have NO FOOD in our house. Just my luck they are predicting snow... so it will be a madhouse dash for things people don't really HAVE to have anyway (I mean, who ever died from not having bread and milk for 2 days? Really?!)
I am crossing my fingers for some good sledding snow for Connor, though :)
