A couple of corrections

My memory fails me these days in my old age.
It was 2 years ago that we had the ice storm here that left us homebound for 2 days.
Also my mother decided to call and correct me about my childhood.
Apparently we did have one or two snow days (ok or two snow days in 13 years of schooling and you wonder why I've forgotten).
But I guess what that means in White Bear Lake is that you put your child in a snowsuit and onto a sled. Pull said child 3 blocks to your girlfriend's house. Plop the kids outside to play while you and your girlfriends drink coffee and chat.
Sounds about perfect to me.
I might end up liking this parenthood thing after all.**

**(no, i am not pregnant, nor will i be in the near future...i'm just sayin'... that's all)

Thank you so much for the lovely compliment! It's always awesome to hear from my closet "blog readers", and I totally agree with you. The pussification of the world continues with the assertion that 3 inches of snow on the ground necessitates an entire shutdown of a metropolitan area. OH! and when I was growing up? Catholic Schools NEVER closed. Those asshole public school kids always had the day off. We just lost bus service. Thanks, Catholics! Sigh.
