Caribbean Blue

“… and so the world goes round and round
with all you ever knew –
They say the sky high above
is Caribbean blue …”
“Caribbean Blue” ~ Enya

Kids are home from school today.  (They’ve been off for six days now, thanks to parent-teacher conferences, inservices, and President’s Day.  Don’t even get me started on being off for parent-teacher conferences.)

They are driving me – and each other – a bit bonkers. 

I’m getting no work done.

I don’t know which is louder: the Wii , the whining for something to eat ten minutes after consuming their lunch, the cries of boredom.

With 3-6″ of snow in the forecast, we could be looking at the same thing for tomorrow. 

The phone just rang.  I look at the Caller ID to determine if I’m picking it up.

CARIBBEAN ISLAND

Caribbean Island?  Caribbean ISLAND???!!  On a day with bickering and whining kids, and more gawdforsaken snow in the forecast, after a tease of 70 degree temperatures that we had on Friday?

That’s just downright fucking cruel.  

Alas, not the Caribbean. 
A little closer to home.

    That is unbelievably fucking cruel, you’re right.

    I live in northcentral Pennsylvania, and whoever sent me a message like that would die…well, maybe not die, but would be irrevocably maimed. 🙂
