In Michigan, we were hit with a polar vortex, closing schools. Cara, a mom of four boys, is giving thanks? “I’m getting my whole house cleaned by not me because these stir-crazy kids are doing it. I’ve given them the jobs I hate like cleaning pee toilets and matching socks. WINNING! I’m paying $5 for reading. I’m not above bribes. WINNING! It’s too cold to play outside so I don’t have to worry about anyone injuring themselves riding snowboards down the deck stairs. WINNING! I am crabby and impatient, and my kids apparently love me anyways. WINNING! See? It’s all perspective. I know we’re all losing it… but I’m going to focus on the wins for today with a nice cup of coffee.
