Weekend Update

Weekend Update

It was a mostly quiet weekend over here. Another storm hit us dropping yet more snow- 18 inches this time. I am really, REALLY sick of the white stuff.

Shade did a first over the w/e by laying on the wee lass's lap. Shade was looking for a warm place to nestle but it looks like she was on the giving end of the heat, not the receiving end. Looks a tad grey seal like from the back.

The PM decided to go through a couple of boxes of homeschooling stuff as the wee lad will be starting kindergarten in the fall and she's a tad anal and is getting it all ready now. They are already doing home learning now so I don't think we needed such a disaster in the livingroom but she did it anyway.

I did my best to snoopervise.

The excitement...I mean worry...came at suppertime. The PM was sure the MM and the wee lad were going to stay at the in laws for another night as the storm had just ended, there was a wind warning out and both our driveway and road were not plowed. He decided to come home anyway, a two hr drive in GOOD weather. They were supposed to be home between 530 and 600 as it was dark at 6. I have never seen the PM so stressed. She looked like she was going to throw up any second. She was talking to us and the wee lass in a too high shaky voice. Shade and I were both on the kitchen table, while the wee one was eating and she didn't say anything.

At 620 she got a call from one of our neighbors, way down the road asking if the MM was out as someone was stuck in the snow. She said yes, with the wee lad! Well a tractor was sent to help and the MM ran home with the lad and went back to dig the car out. The poor little fella was upset and sooo cold. The road plow, the tractor and our regular plow guy showed up at the same time! We are lucky the car didn't get hurt at all with all the wind blowing and in the dark.

The night ended on a good note though. The PM went to bed with a strange looking hot red thing. I went to bed with her as I could tell she was still stressed and then I heard the craziest sound coming from under the covers. I thought her brain might have turned to mush after all but it was a *hot water bottle*. Have you ever been near one of them? Wow, pretty comfy cozy. For the first time ever, Shade and I both slept on the big bed, between the PM and MM with the water bottle. It was so warm we were almost poached!

Hm....I shall have to see about trying this "hot water bottle" thing. It sounds very pleasant. You don't get wet, do you?

That was a very busy weekend. Too busy for my liking. I'm glad you two got a little rest and warmth over the weekend.

Hot? Water? Bottle? Hmmm...sounds very interesting.

At any rate, I'm very glad that everyone arrived home safe and sound!
