Say It Ain’t Snow

So as you all may know already, we are supposedly getting a monster snow storm tomorrow.

If you read my post from yesterday about my daughter, you would understand how appropriately named this storm is. CHARLOTTE!

But onto why having multiple sclerosis in the snow is so annoying. Everyone with MS has different symptoms. My symptoms are fatigue, muscle spasms in my calves and overall blah, at times.

But, when it snows, a lot, my blissful days with children in school come to a screeching halt.

Here is my top ten list of why I don’t want all this snow:

1. Cannot go outside, else I slip and fall.

2. When my legs hit that cold they say


3. Kids are home CONSTANTLY!

4. Husband is home CONSTANTLY.

5. Preparing endless amounts of hot chocolate for my kids and every kid in the neighborhood.

6. Power outages!


8. Little dog will not go outside, hence wee wee pads in house! Yuck!

9. No snow blower!

10. Schoolbus’s do not run if there any inkling of snow anywhere in the town.

So there you have it. When I was younger and had one child, before being diagnosed, I would suit up, get the sled, make the snowmen, etc.

Now, at 42, with four kids, I look out the window and give them that mother smile. You know that smile when you are looking so interested but thinking

Turn around already so I can watch TV:)

I put it out to you, mothers and fathers,how do feel about the impending doom, I mean snow?

Back again later.

Posting another poem.

Happy trails.

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
