OK~ My random thoughts and a recap of how teens cope with ,what I have observed, through these massive numbers of Snow Days we have had in North Iowa this year! Here's my Top 8!
1) Go to the Mall, Mom and Dad won't have a clue we left the house! (I don't understand this one, it's a Snow Day, STAY HOME! Living in the country, we are STUCK at home!)
2) Play video games online from 10 a.m.-Midnight (There surely won't be school tomorrow, so it's OK to stay up until Midnight!)
3) Eat pizza.......pizza.......pizza! (This doesn't work when there are no frozen pizzas in the freezer!) Therefore, it can get ugly at this house.
4) Keep those text messages a coming.......Never know when they might miss out on the "hot" news.
5) Listen to the local radio station 24/7- to make sure they hear the announcement that school is delayed
for 2 hours the next day.
6) Head out to McDonald's (If you can get there safely)- Key word, safely.......
7) They put off showering as long as possible....EWWWWWWW
8) The best idea I've seen yet, My husband and Garrett built a snow fort, out in our yard, on one of these days!
I'm trying hard to grasp the term "SNOW DAY"- this generally means the Department of Transportation is recommending no travel. Therefore, doesn't it make sense to stay home? Now, living in the country, we are forced to stay home, as we don't see snow plows until the day after the storm. Seems as though teens that live in town are all over the place, and I'm sure the roads aren't safe there either. I'm just wondering if I'm being old fashioned and common sense has been tossed out the window in 2010? Hopefully, we are done with snow days for a while! My 9th graders needs a regular routine, as I'm sure many teens do! After All, It's All In a Mom' Day, Right?
