Wow! It was cold today and tomorrow supposed to be colder. I think the high for Friday is 9F. It's so cold that the snow crunches underfoot. I never knew of that phenomenon until I lived in Wisconsin. It snowed in Northwest Arkansas, but it would melt after a couple of days. The other thing that I discovered in Wisconsin is that fresh cheese curds squeak against your teeth. Yep, pretty useless knowledge that I thought I would pass along. I mean, until Wisconsin, I thought cheese curds were just something in a nursery rhyme.
Today Clayton stayed at preschool for lunch and then for a little while after. This allowed for me to be a real adult and have lunch during the day with--steady yourself--another mom! Nicole and I went to the Olive Garden. My husband doesn't like chains so I go there when I get a chance. We had great conversation and it was nice not having to cut up some one's food or take a kid to the bathroom. I even ate my soup while it was hot. And Nicole doesn't like the Andes mints so I got hers. Bonus.
After lunch I bought some real snow boots. I will no longer have cold toes when I go sledding or shovel this wonderful white stuff. Yeah! I believe the literature said warm to -25 F. Let's hope I don't have to prove it! :) But, I am now ready for whatever Mother Nature sends down our way.
And one more thing. Did anyone catch Scrubs last night. It is back and on ABC. I just love that show and find it fairly accurate for hospital folk. We are an odd lot sometimes.
