Snow Day: Pausing

We got our hoped-for snow day today.  For Upper School, the semester is winding down.  Final projects are due.  Exams are around the corner.  I have many tasks, large and small to work on over the next month or so, much of it related to recruiting new students.  I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be able to support the broader efforts of the school.  It’s a lot of work, but it’s so worth it. And, of course, my efforts benefit me as well.  I hope not just to recruit students to the school as a whole, but to recruit students to my classes.  Since my classes at the upper school level are electives, I have to convince people to make room in their schedule for it.

Since I returned from winter break, I hadn’t felt completely geared up for school even though I have much on my plate.  Having the snow day, I think, will help me collect myself a bit.  We’ve started an addition on our house, which hasn’t been terribly disruptive, but it prevented me from doing laundry for a while.  I even had to make a trip to the laundromat.  Soon, it will cause more disruption as we lose a bathroom for a while, and part of the master bedroom.  We’ve already rearranged the bedroom in preparation for the walls coming down and a new one being put up.  It’s nice to have the day to catch up on some of the household turmoil.  I did bring home some work, but I’m guessing I won’t do much, if any.  I might plan out what I want to accomplish when I get back, but not much more than that.

I hope everyone else loaded down with snow takes a moment to pause.  It’s a rare opportunity to not do anything.

  1. Alas, we only got a two-hour delay. I was looking forward to a day of cocooning and reflecting (though I don’t want snow “weeks” like we had last winter!).
