So, bloggy readers, today Nashville schools had our first snow day. It was a wonderfully timed snow day, a perfect way to shorten the week immediately before Christmas break! On this break, I decided it was high-time I did an update...
I did Dickens Christmas in Franklin on Saturday with T&S and scored a couple of last minute gifts for Momma K then finished off with lunch at StoveWorks at the Factory and cleaning/cooking Saturday night. On Sunday, I had a baby shower for my best teacher-friend and it was a smashing hit. It did get a little dicey around 3pm when the snow finally started to stick. My 25ish guests pretty much slipped and slided from my house to all over Nashville. Teachers would call and be like "SEND EVERYONE HOME"--(Insert smattering of curse words)--"I just ran off the road. I have to call you back." I was pacing like a mama hen until I got the final text that everyone had arrived safely. I was going to a PD event on Sunday night, which was cancelled. I wanted to go to the Christmas music programs at either Brentwood Baptist or Grace, but they were cancelled, too.
We were the one of the last counties to call off, but I knew we would. Today was bliss. Even my non-teaching roommates stayed in, plus our one houseguest who couldn't make it home last night. I made banana nut muffins and just relaxed all morning. The roads cleared off enough so a roommate, some Nashville buddies, and I could make it out to OG for some late lunch of Zuppa Toscana at the luscious OG. Mmmm.... Then, I watched ABC Family "Christmas Cupid" (cute but risque for ABC fam) and "The Ugly Truth" (parts make me blush but I L-O-V-E Gerard Butler!). Now, I am headed to bed.
I just found out our school Christmas concert is still going to happen tomorrow night, so that will be something fun to look forward to. I'm also going to do lunch at Puffy Muffin and a movie before I head into school a little early. YAY YAY YAY!
It looks like we will have school Wednesday, but Thursday could be dicey since some kind of ice/snow/sleet mix is coming through Wed. night. Cannot believe this weather is coming through this early. It's also bitterly cold in Nashville! I think low of 4 degrees tonight! Brrr... Any way, we have a 1/2 day on Thursday, plus 12-5 PD and then PD on Friday. Then, it's home to BG and onto to Eastern KY for mom's side of the family's Christmas! Hopefully, there is no crazy weather and we can all make safely.
Lots of love and WARM wishes to you tonight! I'll keep you updated!
