"The sun did not shine, it was too wet to play,
So we sat in the house all that cold, cold, wet day."

So you know how they say, "Do something to occupy your time and the snow will go away"?
It's not working. We've
1) played sudoku
2) baked cookies
3) made shadow puppets with a flashlight on the wall
4) drawn (very poor) pictures for relatives
5) gone to the library
6) made paper airplanes
7) made monkey puppets out of brown lunch bags
8) had the cousins over
9) played Chutes and Ladders 574,489 times
The kids have even tried to teach Mom how to play video games and that took some time, lemme tell ya
(and I still can't complete a level without some sudden demise into the lake of lava).
The foul weather just isn't going anywhere.
Apparently, Dr. Seuss had never visited Indiana in February when he wrote,
"From there to here, from here to there,
funny things are everywhere",
'cuz honestly, four inches of ice under six inches of snow just isn't funny anymore.
Oh, yeah...and this is what it STILL looks like where I live...
so those of you frolicking on the beach (ahem, TIEN),
feel free to send some warmth this way...=)
