An Alexander kind of day.

I talked to one of the chess moms last night, and she says, what with the snow that gets piled up by plows and doesn't melt as quickly, we haven't had a day this year without visible snow in our fair city.

We've gotten so much (admittedly light) snow this season, we're not even getting snow advisories for it, anymore.

Tomorrow's forecast:

Rain likely... possibly beginning as a period of freezing rain. Highs in the upper 30s. Light northeast winds. Chance of rain 70 percent.

Thursday Night
Snow likely. Accumulation 1 to 2 inches. Lows in the mid 20s. Wind becoming northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow 70 percent.
Wonder if the chance of accumulation will mean we actually get an advisory for this snow?

But, back to me. I'm having what I think of as an Alexander kind of day, since Alexander had that Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad day. Only mine's not bad, so much as blah and not good.

I woke up amazingly sleepy. Napped in the recliner while the kids fed themselves breakfast. Went back to bed. Got up at 10 to take a shower, and instead of waking me up, that just left me with cold, wet hair.

I think I was rude to Wolf on the phone this morning, but all I remember was being sleepy.

My kitchen is an amazing wreck, from so much cooking yesterday, and I haven't done anything in it, except for eat and surf. I haven't started up my laptop, so I haven't responded to any email, except by phone. I've haven't done anything about laundry or bowling forms or mail or bills or well, you get the idea.

Then Tigger called from school. He chipped a tooth on the slide at recess. When I was picking him up from school, I saw Coach, and got a check from him (for the deposit I made, for the t-shirts), so that was good. I took Tigger to the dentist and he now looks pretty much good as new. The chip was small enough to treat as a filling, but the dentist said to be careful of using his front teeth to bite hard things.

Now Flar is out at a meeting, and then to run some errands, and then to watch the UK-TN game. Tigger is watching the game with Bébé, who had tickets for tonight. Critter is watching Old Trek (the ep. with Lincoln -- a bit late for President's day ;).

And I've tons to do, but I'm still feeling blah and sleepy. I think I'll settle under my laptop and do sitting still things. Like answer email, work on Erosul, or just see if anyone's on IM.
