I haven't seen the sun since Wednesday. That's not necessarily something I'm thankful for on this silver liningness day, it's just newsworthy because we get spoiled here and rarely go so many days in a row without sunshine. If my usual sunny disposition is lacking, you've been forewarned.
AND I see it as a good thing if all I have to whine about is cloudy skies. For starters, we won Magnum's office football pool last weekend. That was actually our second win of the season, and since cash is committed up front, we are now guaranteed to finish in the black. We're a whopping four bucks above break even! Oh, it's gonna be a good Christmas this year!
Remember Meego's hair last week? And my to-do list? While other things have been added to the to-do's, Meego has about half the hair he had last week. Yay!
Wolfgang and I hung out a bit on Friday. He'd ordered a long board that was due to arrive at our house Friday afternoon. I took him to the mall to get a helmet and he needed a couple of things for his dorm. He stayed for dinner. I'd forgotten how much that kid eats. I think we got a deal on the university meal plan.
And, with this yuck weather, I want to express my thankfulness for the bus service. I've mentioned the parking hassles at the university, in addition to my aversion to driving around town in general. I rode the bus twice last week, and am finding it very convenient and reliable - even on the freezing-cold-traffic-mess day. Riding the bike was out of the question as bike paths and lanes were covered in ice and road vomit on both of those days.
And oh yeah, there was my birthday last week. Magnum's birthday is today, so I guess that whole "grow old together" is still on schedule.
