  • Another snow day for other people, but a school day for us. Campbell was the only one slowed down by chatting on the phone with her friends. Whitman and Keaton were both finished with their school work by 10. She went back to sleep, and he went outside.
  • Whitman has spent more time outside in the last three days than he has in months. And speaking of the last 3 days, I have more clothes laying in my mudroom than other people have in their houses. I have decided that I am just going to wash all of the wet gloves, hats, coats, and everything else when this weather is gone for a few days,
  • I did all of my chores plus some, but I tried to hang out near the school room to keep encouraging the big boys to finish their school work. They were eventually done, and Graham did a happy dance that he didn't have to go to work again today. 
  • Reagan did a happy dance later when she found out that she didn't have to go to work tomorrow. I had already told her that she would not be driving to her class tomorrow after we drove to the grocery store.
  • We started off at Costco, and getting there was fine since we were in the suburban, but the roads were pretty ice covered most of the way. Costco was pretty empty, so that was entertaining. Then we went to Kroger, and they were a mess over there-even a sign saying to please not take the carts in the parking lot. Um, nope!
  • We hurried home, and I scurried around trying to make some mac and cheese. I made it at Christmas, but because we had to wait to eat it, it wasn't the best. Tonight, I did redeem myself, and we pretty much devoured all of it.
  • We played 20 Questions, but before that I spent a lot of time working on a puzzle that the girls found at Kroger which was 80 percent off. Not it is dessert time, Anderson has chosen cookies while I might have some cider...or some ice cream!
