I know you’ve already heard it 100 times but it’s snowing… AGAIN.  We’re supposed to get almost 3 feet of accumulation over the course of the weekend.  That’s on top of last weekend’s snow that hasn’t yet completely melted.  I’m telling you, in my experience, not a good thing.  But I figure as long as we can make coffee we’ll be ok.  Thank God for gas stoves.  Even Chase is saying the snow is ridiculous.  I know because she told me so.  It’s a new word she’s trying out.  She said it and I could see her look at me to see my reaction.  Maybe she thought it was a bad word but I don’t see any problem with it.  

So we’re hunkering down.  The sled is at the ready and I bought Chase some nice long socks to keep her legs from getting wet in the snow.  Somehow she only has short socks.  We’ll be doing plenty of playing in the snow.  It’s the perfect thing to do whenever boredom sets in.  I don’t have anything in particular planned but I’ve been thinking about making crayons, playdoh and doing some beads.  I was also thinking about making pizza dough tomorrow but realize that I don’t have any good melting cheese for topping it.  Maybe I’ll make Ben walk to Safeway.  What are your big plans?

Man, Chase said something to me that was so funny today.  If only I was feeling clear headed enough to remember what it was.  She’s feeling better but now Avery’s got it and I’m still sick.  I feel like I’m trying to ward off a sore throat now.  It’s SO not fair.  I’m ready to be done with sick.  I’m over it.   It’s really terrible to see my poor girl sick.  She’s so small yet and there’s nothing I can do for her.  Thankfully, she doesn’t seem that bad off.  I just keep the humidifier pumping.  Wish us a speedy recovery PLEASE.

Oh, remember when Chase was telling me all about the wrong potty song?  Well it came on the radio today and she says to me “hey, that’s the wrong potty song again.  I like that song.”  She’s completely renamed the song and is identifying it by her new name.  I listened to it as closely as I could and I still have no idea what she’s talking about.  Oh, and the best thing she said to me all day?  C: Mom, who’s that song?  Me: Jenny Lewis.  C: No, that’s you mom.  Me: No, it’s another lady singing. C: Oh, it sounds just like you.  Yeah!  I’ll take it.
