Snowmageddon by the Numbers

So we, like most of the Midwest, have experienced mucho snow and bitter cold temps in the last couple of days, causing all schools and most businesses to be closed.  Therefore, our house overfloweth with children and energy, and a mamma who is going a bit stir crazy herself.  Here are some stats from Snowmageddon/Snowpocalypse/Great Blizzard of 2014:

15+    inches of snow towering on our deck wall

3!       days home from school

6        viewings of Mulan

1356  pine needles on floor by Christmas tree

5        viewings of Pocahontas (almost 6, as little one is requesting it again)

11       loads of laundry washed, folded and put away

58       times mom has asked children to please oh please not be so rowdy in the house

8:00    average wake time for children and mamma

-39      lowest "real feel" report on my TWC app

20+     games played, many of them Rat-a-tat-cat, as requested continually by a certain 4 year old

28       new gray hairs on mommy's head

Tomorrow is school.  Back to routine and rhythm and order and normalcy.

And also early mornings.
