I left work early around noon yesterday and drove home while it snowed. The school didn’t dismiss early so I had to wait around until 2:30 to pick up the baby boy. Then he insisted he needed gloves so we went to Target – since the roads were dry at that point – and I bought him some. And a hat.Â And tinsel for the tree. And Christmas balls. And a gingerbread house kit! WOO! We’re both excited about that one and plan to do it on Saturday.
It was bitterly cold last night so I decided it’d be a good time to put the tree up. Baby boy helped and did a smashing job. I decorated the mantle. Now all I need are presents under the tree.
Schools are opening on time today despite the fact it’s 25 degrees and the roads are slick. I am NOT looking forward to driving to the office in this, but I’m going to take my time. I’d rather get there in one piece and there are crazy folks on the road during these times. At least it’s supposed to be 50 today to melt off all that stuff.
Time to go. Gotta get the baby to school and me to work. Oh yeah, and mail my second mortgage payment (it’s still just SO cool).
