The city of Leominster used there little sidewalk plow-y thing and getting out of my street this morning was a breeze. I could totally see oncoming traffic so I didn’t feel I was taking my life in my hands. I don’t remember them doing that last year, but maybe we didn’t have such scary mounds of snow. So big dumps up to the plowmasters.
My new age hasn’t sunk in yet. I’m sure it will.
Thank God I talk about myself on my website or certain family members who shall remain nameless would never have remembered to call me today. Ahem. Not that I would have held a grudge, but there certainly would have been a really great dump entry about it.
Loot: Sidetable from Pier One, Arrested Development Season One, and, to feed my inner child, the DVD boxed set of Liddsville. Now all they have to do is release the Bugaloos on DVD and I’ll be a happy little kid.
Okay, obligatory picture of my kid out in the snow. What he’s standing in is what’s new since the last storm. That’s also why I left the rubbish barrels in the picture – we had rubbish pickup on Monday, so that’s all new snow on top of those babies.
It’s not as bad as on the Cape (did you guys see the picture on the front page of the Globe yesterday – the houses looked like the inside of a freezer. It looked SO cool, but that’s only because I don’t live down there and my house wasn’t encased in ice.
So Junior didn’t have school and Mr. Dump told me the commute in was horrendous, so I guess that answers that question. Actually, it’s only 9:50am and there’s already a good four inches out there, and they say it isn’t going to stop snowing until tomorrow morning – so did they up the accumulation predictions? If it keeps up at this rate, I’m guessing we’ll be getting at least another foot.
Is this how I wanted to spend my last day as a 39 year old? No. I wanted to go to work, and at lunch run to Borders at the Solomon Pond Mall. Now I’m pretty sure we aren’t going anywhere today.
Pictures later, now off to shovel.
Proving that it’s all a delicate balance between light and dark, sanity and insanity, winter and summer, yesterday I signed Junior up for 4 weeks of introductory ski lessons. Tonight I signed him up for Instructional League baseball. (Wait, my baby is too big for t-ball? Waaaaaaa!)
So now he wants to take his ski lessons NOW. And then he got angry when he heard that he had to wait for the snow to melt before Little League started. Ahhh, to be seven again.
Oh, by the way, here is some Junior Humor.
Him: You can come up now [to tuck him in]
Me: Okay, I’ll be up in two shakes
Him: Bananas or no bananas?
Him: In the two shakes…
Oh man, just what we were missing around here…six more inches of snow!
I wonder if they’ll cancel school or not. Ugh.
