2-hour Delay

I want to know what the difference is between below freezing at 8:15 and below freezing at 10:15. To me, they seem the same. So if you can go to school when it's below freezing and there is ice at 10:15, why can't you go at 8:15? It does not make a lot of sense to me. What did I do with my extra two hours? I forgot to make Flower's lunch. She reminded me when we were about 10 minutes away from her school. She got to order today, which made her happy.

Our house is very close to our next-door neighbors'. Our living room windows look at each other. Sometimes, the 5 year-olds look through them, too. Mini-me saw that her bff is home from day care today, and just about had a fit. I explained that if she's home, that means that she might be sick. Then I saw on her mom's facebook page that she is indeed home sick. Mini-me doesn't care. She just wants to go and play and throw caution to the wind. After all, just because Ro is sick, doesn't mean that she can't play.

Patch is watching Diego. He always answers when asked a question. I think he believes that Diego can hear him. He is also turning into a rude little guy. He burps without saying "Excuse me." He also spits out his food if he's tired of eating it, regardless of where he is. Thank goodness for the dog.

36 years in DC area and I never could figure out the method behind the madness of those school system closings. How many times we closed with just the threat of snow and nothing came and how many times we were open when the weather was horrible! I think they decide with a coin toss and nothing to do with the actual weather.
It is sad when our baby boys turn into little boys!

Could you, perhaps, be just a wee bit tired of winter?

Mom -- just a wee bit. But, more importantly, the kids are tired of it.

Even though I don't have kids home from school due to weather, I still feel your pain. The snow is hard to deal with regardless!!
