Yes, this was a very snowy and cold week, but still plenty good. My paternal in-laws were here visiting today, so I was otherwise occupied away from getting my silver liningness post in sooner. It was a nice visit, no shouting matches ensued!
We saw plenty of Chaco and Wolfgang this weekend. They were here all day to see the grandparents and stuck around for some gaming. They'd stopped by on Friday. End of the month = grocery money time. The fridge is working for Chaco, but he's not sure what his roommates are eating now.
As mentioned, we had a fun day yesterday doing the winter percussion thing and finding the wildlife refuge. I'd never heard of winter percussion before Meego joined up with them this year, so it was fun to see what it's about, and he's having fun with it too. The kids did a nice job.
We watched several teams perform and it was all very entertaining. I couldn't help but feel how NOT band booster parents we are. Kinda like how I don't put the Honor Student bumper stickers on the cars, while I'm happy to support the music programs and the ensembles, I don't feel a need to wear my status on my sleeve... or on my back a la:
I covertly snapped the pic of a couple in front of us, check it out. It's safe to say that I will not be in the bleachers wearing my "Band Mom" t-shirt while sitting next to my "Band Dad" man. Those kids are in high school! But, to each her own.
Other than that, it seems it was mostly a very wintry week. Meego didn't have one full day of school all week - either a full on snowday or delayed start. Even the university was closed on Monday. I think the district is getting precariously close to eating up all the snow days and having to make up time at the end of the year, but I haven't heard anything yet.
But with the snow, I managed to get plenty done, which helped make for plenty of "free time" for this rather busy weekend. I have not ridden any bicycles in over a week, I think I'm starting to have withdrawals!
So I'm glad to be finished with February. I'm sure there's still more snow and cold to be had before it's all said and done, but it could always be worse. And I've not been stung by a bee in a long long time!
