I let them stay home today.

 We got the call yesterday that because the temps are so low and expected to be almost 0 this morning there was going to be a 2 hour delay for the kids. Even at the time that they would be out at the bus stop (we have one car and I have it at work when they are at the bus stop) they would still be out in single digit temps. The temps here (in Tennessee) have been going from 12* one day to almost 50* the next but today it was 9* so we decided last night to let them sleep in today and let them stay home.

 Ok, you are their mom so it is your decision.  I just hope that you didn't leave them home alone all day since you are at work.

 That is your decision to make :-)

My kiddos haven't had school all damn week! I'm slightly annoyed.

 Well I am at work so daddy is with them. They pretty much sit and work on crafts like I do so they keep themselves occupied.
