over the weekend things kinda got back to normal. people crept from their houses, grocery stores got restocked, and snow melted from the streets-very slowly. schools still were out and were called on monday too, but not the girls' school! their dad had the privilege of taking them to school monday and tuesday, but today school was out again. it snowed overnight and all day covering our snow and ice ground with fresh powder, enabling me to see my pathways outside, and i guess it screwed up the streets even more. we never left the house. another dutch baby for breakfast with bacon, split pea soup for lunch, and steak for dinner. we all hung out in my bed most of the day. it is nice to be getting along together nicely, but i just want our non-routine back. this is getting so old.
