Winter has hit us hard here in New Jersey. We’ve had two major snowstorms in the past week, with more coming this next week. My oldest son has been able to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams by shoveling the neighbors’ walks. He gets paid well for his efforts, and we opened up a savings account for him yesterday. It’s exciting watching him grow up.
The rest of us remain holed up inside, doing schoolwork, coloring books, games, and reading lots of books. While we are enjoying the coziness of it all, cabin fever is also starting to manifest itself in several ways.
Valentine’s Day is next week, and while we never make a big deal out of this in our family, one of my strategies to combat cabin fever will be to make Valentine’s crafts for each other. Pinterest has millions of options, with my favorite being this one.
How about you? How are you combatting winter?
