Mercer already called school off for tomorrow....why won't they ever call work off?????

kevin took me to work, it was harrowing....he also picked up cody and tried to pick up bev who decided she couldn't leave her kids home alone and possibly get snowed in at work....as a mother, I have to agree, but as a barn person, I was pissed! all loads put off till tomorrow, which means I don't get Wednesday off, but will probably get Thursday off instead,,,,,but will have to work Saturday since we'll be weaning and getting peach weaners. krikey. discovered the turtle was out of water, but it was still perking right along. thought I was going to have to stay, kevin brought me supper and extra blankets, then came back to pick me up after I got the all clear. he's afraid I won't get back in tomorrow. I honestly don't care. Will worry about that tomorrow. katie is bored, this snow and snow days has screwed up all her plans. the sectionals game postponed till tomorrow..
