The ice that fell last night is halting most activity in the Dallas area today. (Good thing. It's crazy and dangerous to drive on ice unless you absolutely have to.)

Cooper's school is closed. Katie's preschool is closed for the second day in a row. Steve will work from home.

And we won't make Steve's 9 a.m. chemotherapy appointment this morning. No worries, though. We'll go tomorrow morning to get Steve's dose of cancer-killing drugs.

When the weather forecasts indicated trouble on Monday, I asked for a backup appointment for Thursday, so he's already on the schedule for 9 a.m. Thursday. I'm sure the cancer center staff will work hard to accommodate everyone who was scheduled for this morning.

The four of us (plus furry Margie) will stay in today and enjoy one another. I'm thinking hot chocolate, a movie, some popcorn, some games, some coloring, some reading ...

I don't envy you the icy cold weather, but I do miss Snow Days! We haven't had any here since 2007. It's all sunshine and nice weather down here today! Enjoy your family time together!

Sorry that Steve's appointment is delayed by a day, but isn't it kinda fun to have a snow day? Especially if everyone's home. (My hubby usually still goes into the office on snow days.) Hope you are all enjoying it.

I love snow days. I view them as a gift -- a day to relax and enjoy time together as a family. So glad to hear that you were able to a back-up appt for Steve. I hope you enjoyed a nice day at home today!
