Hi, are you one of the estimated 70 million getting hit by the big N’oreaster snowstorm this morning? We are! Drew spent the night in a hotel near work last night and I’m on my own with the kids today. School was canceled, but get this – Jackson takes a theater class after school and they’re holding a snow day camp today for a few hours, and being the wise person I am and clearly remembering how the snow day we had last month made us all crazy, I signed Jackson up.

Here are this week’s:
