So, we are expecting another 7-12″ of snow tonight with high winds tomorrow. This is getting to be a little boring. I just opened my closet and saw three new adorable sundresses that I can’t wait to wear before I die – but it is going to have to wait awhile.
But I had a bit of good news today – they came and filled our propane tank with 175 gallons – the bad news is that cost us more than three airplane tickets to Fort Lauderdale and back (over $1000 for those who don’t know how much that is). We still aren’t turning our heat any higher because the cost is so high. My infrared heater has kept me warm (even if it has been in a closed up bedroom) without raising my electric bill. But at least we have enough propane that if the power would happen to go out, we could always turn on the gas fireplace and not totally freeze.
Another bit of good news today is that I was on a conference call with early learning educators and advocates across the country (over 1000 of us) today with Secretary Arne Duncan and Secretary Kathleen Sibelius. The call was dedicated to questions and answers and truly a listening session for both Duncan and Sibelius. Not only was that really good, but when I tweeted about it, Secretary Duncan favorited my tweet. Pretty cool, huh? (No political discussions please – this was about our children not our politics)
Today I’m thankful that I have options to be warmer (if I can afford it LOL). I’m thankful there are so many people who want to see early learning strengthened. And I’m thankful I came home before the snow started flying.
