Today was our third snow day in a row. Tomorrow it ends. The girls head back to school for one whole day before the weekend. Oh, well. Sorry for not posting much, but I haven't had a lot to share. After Tuesday, it just became too cold to enjoy the snow outdoors, and the roads are too scary to go anywhere. Mr. B even burned up two vacation days, since he has to drive a little bit to his current railroad job. I braved the roads myself last night to go to rehearsal. We canceled Tuesday, but we couldn't spare anymore. I head back out tonight. (By the way, today is Mr. B's birthday - a milestone one - but he doesn't want anyone to know. Sigh.)
But here are a few things we have done over our little mini-vacation.
Big Sis and I make a great Rainbow Loom team! She designs and lays out the bands for her favorite pattern, the star burst bracelet, and I do the actual looming, since it's a bit difficult. She's now taking orders for family and friends. The black, purple, and silver bracelet is for one of my theatre friends, while the green, red, and orange bracelet is for her godfather.
The first of my two book pre-orders for the month arrived via UPS on Tuesday! Props to the brave UPS driver for delivering crap like books in that weather. I am so beyond excited to start this one, but lines are STILL. NOT. THERE.
I have created a Scattergories monster. Normally, she and I are super-competitive at board games. (Ask poor Mr. B.) However, neither of us are very good at Scattergories, nor do we care. It's fun to play anyway. (We got Scattergories as a wedding present back in 2002. Yes, we registered for it.)
My baby is cheesy. She has spent the last few days trashing the house with all of her toys, sneaking snacks when we're not looking, drawing and painting more pictures than I know what to do with, and binging on TV via Amazon and Netflix. She starts selling Girl Scout cookies this Saturday! They're chilling in the trunk of my very cold car.
And that's what we've been up to. It only made it up to 12 degrees today. We got around 8 inches of snow. Tomorrow, we rejoin the world. And that is that.
