#JusJoJan the 16th – Ridiculous


Apparently we’re supposed to get a ridiculous amount of snow overnight tonight and tomorrow.

And I’m fed up.

But it’s not what you think.

Last week (after not being at school since before Christmas), I was having a really tough time trying to convince Alex that Monday the 17th was the day to go back to school. He fought and fought, because he’s watching the news like everyone else, and he doesn’t feel like it’s safe to go back.

I might agree with him if three of his classmates weren’t likely going to be off school next week.

Because he’s in a class of four students—he’s going to be alone with his teacher and his EA.

So I talked to his teacher last week by email and told her he was nervous. She got on Zoom with him on Friday and did such a great job of convincing him that he should go back to school on Monday, that now he’s mad at me because I likely won’t be able to get the car out of the driveway in the morning because of the snow.

Just when you think everything’s going your way …

Ugh! I’m so fed up.

(Don’t feel bad. I’m actually laughing. Because what else can you do? Hehee!)

  2. I hope you can keep your sense of humor, Linda.


  3. It’s a very frustrating situation, I am glad that you are laughing inside, it’s ironic really isn’t it! 💜💜💜


  4. Sometimes things just go contrary! Good idea to laugh about it. What other option is there?


  5. I really thought, for some unknown reason, that the prompt would bring out silliness. Most (including myself) didn’t end up going that way. Oh well. It was still fun. I totally agree that sometimes you just have to laugh off things you have no control over.


  6. Wow, so frustrating! I’m so glad you have the Zoom option if you get trapped by snow. I know the laughing to survive. It’s all ridiculous, right?
