My girls had a bad case of cabin fever. We tried to combat this by playing in the snow. By playing in the snow I mean, I stayed inside and Emmy pretended to swim in the snow. Since we had at least a foot and a half it was pretty easy. We did an activity from pinterest where you fill a balloon with water and add food coloring (tip add food coloring first) then set it outside to freeze. then you will have marble looking ice balls. It was cool. Then they devoured the Reese's spreads I got as part of Influenster. Their fave combo was celery, but they also liked carrots and apples.

filled up balloons ready to be set outside
Then the most exciting thing ever (yes I'm being sarcastic) My water froze. The water in the kitchen froze then thawed, then a few days later it all froze except the bathroom sink and toilet (so thankful we could still flush) The next day it all came back on, but I had a weird feeling that my pressure wasn't 100%. I washed dishes, laundry and showered but a nagging feeling that something wasn't right had me going under my house. Imagine my horrified expression when I saw several inches of water all over my crawl space. My ex husband came over and shut my water off. I called the plumber he recommended but no one answered. Which didn't surprise me because it was Saturday. Saturday night my miracle came. A friend saw someone post on facebook that he was doing side work. I called him early Sunday morning. He came right out and fixed it and only charged me 70. I was over the moon excited. Then I aggravated him for the next hour because the hot water pressure in the bathroom sink was really weak. He said it was probably a piece of ice blocking it. I called him 2 more times.....then went under the house again and made sure it wasn't leaking. It wasn't, so I am just trying to be patient and wait for the ice to melt.
I am so over winter now, and am ready to be in flip flops.I have no idea how people in Massachusetts and other hard hit states are handling all this snow.
