SOLC 13 of 31: Did I miss it?

Another early morning snowstorm on a weekday begs the question: cancellation or delayed opening?

I’m praying for a full day or a delay – not a cancellation. We can’t afford to lose any more days of school to our already-reduced-spring-break.

The dog wakes me up, not the auto-dialer phone call.

Did I miss it?

I peek out the window. Yes, a few inches have fallen as predicted.

Two different school districts in my household – did I miss them both?

Down the stairs to feed the dog, and I check my cell phone.

Sure enough, VM from my district: Delayed opening.

Nothing from my kids’ district.

I check e-mail, school webpages to be sure. No messages of cancellation for my kiddos.

I’m delayed. They are not.

I got out to shovel while my son waits for the bus.

No bus. Did I miss it?

I shovel. He waits. Did I miss it?

Just as I’m about to go back inside to check the website again, I hear the rumble of his bus coing down the street.

No, I didn’t miss it.

    Loved getting those early morning calls when I was teaching! Your repeating line kept me wondering, I must say.

    I love the repeating line and how it’s answered at the end. I almost missed my call!
