Snow Day

The original schedule at The Lexington School today didn't actually include classes. The lower school was to celebrate 100th day, and Valentine's. The upper school was having a spirit day, with specific colors for each class to wear, that sort of thing.

And the school's been hard hit by strep and probably also the flu.

So this is the least snowy snow day in the history of The Lexington School.

I woke up to the radio announcing that Fayette County Schools were closed, so I called TLS to see whether we had an hour delay. No school today meant also no chess club today. So I rolled over and went back to sleep for an extra hour.

We had french toast for breakfast -- what else do you make with eggs, milk & bread?

The boys played outside a bit -- Critter's fever appears to be gone but he's still coughing. My uvula appears to be back to normal size, but now I've got a yucky cough. I'm mostly feeling better, though.

I got verifying email from l-s that she received the TLS roster for the Quad C, so that's set. Since we didn't have chess club today, I need to check with the maybes on the list when I get back from CA.

I dried and ripped and ironed the cloth for the bags, and figured out where to place the logos, then I hotsynced to get the t-shirt order onto my visor, and met Coach at the embroidery place. I was going to pay the deposit with my monthly credit card, but they didn't take them. Fortunately, we're solvent enough to float the deposit until break is over, and I can get a check from the school. They'll have the bags ready for me to pick up on Wednesday, so I'll have time for the sewing.

We picked up Chick-Fil-A for lunch, as that's something Critter missed this week at school. Each time his advisor group's Boxtops for Education count reaches 30, they get to order Chick-Fil-A out of their own pocket money, and his advisor brings it in. They were going to have Chick-Fil-A on Thursday this week.

And then I picked up a few things at Wal-Mart for Knight and Cinder.

Knight came over with this week's Buffy and Angel on a tape. We watched that while I sorted and folded laundry. And now I'm done with my break, and it's back to work on those lists of mine. First, some dinner. Red beans and rice with smoked sausage. It goes together fast.
