Outside My Window....
The sun is shining and the snow is everywhere.
At least 3 foot of snow fell over the weekend.
I am Thinking.....
That it is great to homeschool. One can go sledding on their
lunch break and use the big hill when all the neighbor kids are
in the school building sitting. Sledding can be gym class. Lots
of exercise there.
Unbeknown to me.. Dad ran out of his meds before
the winter snowstorm. He has been out of meds for
about a week now. He will be picking them up on Monday.
I'll have to keep better tabs on that. I should know that he
is not real good at managing those type of things.
He did manage to shovel us out even with his
heart condition. I wish his job could have seen him. Maybe
they would take him back to work. I hated seeing him do that
but he took lots of breaks. He even shoveled out our neighbor
who in the fall had fallen of his roof working on it.
Our Family Superbowl party messed me up on that one.
Dad made Stromboli's Chicken wings, meatballs, had chips,
cheese puffs, nachos, cupcakes, and deviled eggs. What
a combo...Lots of leftovers.
