2) Very dramatic weather predictions are dominating the news here. Its pretty ridiculous the adjectives they are using. Let's just stick to numbers, okay? 16 to 20 inches. Fine. Historic, epic, snowpocalypse? Not fine! The lead stories were about stores running out of shovels and bread. So far, there is no snow fall and a glaze of ice. Apparently the conditions are so severe that both my husband's and my workplaces have cancelled and closed tomorrow... preemptively! And we have a state of emergency already... before there is even snow! Maybe we are more prepared as a society, or maybe we are just a bunch of drama queens who want to go play in the snow. I know I should take this a bit more seriously because probably it will be a fatal storm for some, but I can't help but thinking of the Little House on the Prairie books and the blizzards described there. They would wake up surprised by snow up to the rafters.
3) Back in a great place in our marriage. Its been EIGHT years since we started to fall in love. This week is our anniversary of dating week. It was snowing several of those days, too, which meant that we couldn't go on any Official Off Campus dates for nearly a month! What a great eight years, and what a fun time for a love anniversary.
4) Our son was acting really strangely today. I ordered my husband to watch him like a hawk in case he'd had a seizure or was ill or something. I think he was just moody today! If we laughed and it didn't suit him, he'd growl at us. He wept when we said, "No more fuice (foos?) today, son... water, milk, or tea". He searched the house for me and yelled Ma!Ma! Mamamama! but then wasn't interested in me when he found me. Puzzling. He'll have a rough time being kept indoors the next several days, I imagine.
5) I'm coordinating a long distance baby shower for a friend on bed rest. Apparently, very few people have any suggestions or resources on this subject (according to the Google searches I've done). So far, I've got the stationary and a few ideas, but I would welcome any GREAT ideas.
