Any date that attempts to motivate me (“March forth!”) is good in my book.
But when it attempts to get me moving on an unexpected Ice Day? It feels downright necessary.
See, snow days and ice days are like found time.
And found time ideally means catching up on housekeeping and grading and yearbook things and email and scheduling posts and the thousand other things that I can get done to make life a little easier to juggle for the days ahead.
(If there are less things racing through my brain, maybe I won’t try to use the wrong key in the ignition and freak out when the car won’t start again…)
But there is this part of me who just desperately wants to curl up in my jammies under a blanket with a huge cup of coffee in front of the pellet stove in the basement and read a book or binge watch Gilmore Girls all day long.
So…the order to March Forth! seems to require more action than turning pages or holding the remote.
So I’m making my to-do list for the day and working on crossing things off.
