You Can Pay Me Now Or Pay Me Later


Ok, I love the snow and the cold, but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. We are out of school on another national holiday, Snowday number 17, at least it feels like it. All I know is that starting with today and what seems inevitable tomorrow as well, we will have to start taking back some of our future holidays.
As I lay in bed wondering if I will get THE CALL that school is closed all I think of is "You can pay me now or you can pay me later" Looks like I'm paying at both ends. Enjoy the winter wonderland.
