Snowday SNOWDAY SNOWDAY!
School was cancelled today. Even for me. My first snowday as a college kid return. It's really the combination of snow and c-c-c-c-cold that got the Powers That Be to cancel today's round of learning.
I post the above thread from Meego's fbook to illustrate the coldness. Even HE broke down and put on long pants. I almost didn't recognize him. We actually had to go out as the storm was moving in on Tuesday night to buy him some long pants since his current stash didn't look to include any that fit.
So I've made use of the day stuck at home to scrub. My floors are shiny shiny, and I evicted a rather large colony of dust bunnies.
And now, since its Thursday, I thought I'd do some Mama Kat action with one of her prompts for the week:
5.) Something your child did or said this week that made you smile.
For Meego, I present the above. More specifically, the
- "I lost". *like*
But, so as to not play favorites, I must include our other "children".
For Wolfgang, he's always been one to express his gratitude, very generous with the Thank Yous. And he often relates things to me about how much he's enjoying college life. He'd told me about a few kids from his high school class who like the local university, but didn't want to go there because they felt a need to get farther away since their parents would hover too much.
- "I'm glad you don't make me feel like that!" *whew* (Tank Girl, not Helicopter Mom, remember?)
And here are a few of Chaco's contributions from a conversation we had regarding a couple of his roommates:
- "I don't know why they're enrolled in college but don't care about their classes and grades" *inward beam*
- "Well, I like to play video games too, but not All. The. Time." *inner sigh of relief*
- "Now I know why you got upset when we didn't clean up after ourselves!" *Good God Hallelujah!*
And what the heck, here's my "daughter", China this morning:
|"Jimminy Crickets, it's cold!"|
I think that's dog expletive.
