What a week, eh? Started with the crazy Boston Marathon bombing. The surviving bomber - he's just a kid. What the hell?
In the smaller circle of things, we dealt with more winteriness here. While I'm not happy to be freezing my buns off in April, I'm grateful for the moisture. We had a dryer than usual winter, so if we're making up for it in spring, so be it. People out here have cows to feed and stuff.
Despite the wintry weather, it got nice enough for another track meet for Wolfgang and the team yesterday. He and the rest of the 4x800 team are looking pretty good to be contenders at state this year. Yesterday was the first time they've been beaten as they took second place, just one second behind the winners.
The winning team actually dropped their baton, which is an automatic DQ in the Olympics and, I think, college. In high school, it can depend. The officials apparently didn't see it, and Wolfgang said his team didn't want to bring it to the officials' attention because that would be admitting that a team that dropped their baton still beat them. I totally get that!
Reese the Snake shed another round of skin this week - always a momentous occasion. It's interesting to me how "playful" and energetic he becomes right after he sheds. Like he's all happy with his new clothes or something.
Similarly, I'd made a grooming appointment for this week for China, but the groomer called and said she'd injured her hand and can't work for a while, so I rescheduled. I think China knew it was going to be cold this week and wanted to keep her long fur coat a little longer, so she set the universe in motion to injure the groomer. Dogs can do that.
In movie news, Magnum and I watched The Awakening. It's a ghost story. We liked it. I thought it was well made with good casting. And the ending... is she? Or isn't she?
