Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Currently {January 25, 2016}

25 January 2016

Currently {January 25, 2016}

Finished knitting Little Valerie on 24 January 2016
All I need to do is block the dress and sew on two buttons. The only way the buttons could have been better for the dress is if they had 6 petals (instead of five).

Under 18+ inches of snow
From Friday afternoon to Saturday night, we had about 20 inches of snow dumped on our city in Maryland.

On Friday, those with government jobs were only at work until 12 PM (and I don't believe they have to go to work today). Our library closed at 2 PM (and is closed today). Panera Bread closed at 3 PM. Drew did not work on Friday or Saturday. Mail was not delivered on Saturday. We did not have church on Sunday. Everything shut down. People are only out of the roads if they have to be out.

I am thankful that I'm not working as a nurse. I hated driving to work in 2009/2010 when we had THREE snow storms. It's nice to stay at home with my children-reading, singing, watching movies, making bread, and drinking hot chocolate together.

One worry I have is wondering how long Drew's work will be canceled. I've written before that he does not get paid time off, so when the tutoring center closes, he does not get paid. When a family already lives from paycheck to paycheck, it makes it hard.

How was your weekend? Did you get snow?
