Really? More snow?

Yup. More snow today. Because we didn’t get enough over the weekend. Or last week. Or the week before. I try hard not to complain about the snow, but there was a reason I moved to Texas years ago, and it had to do with fluffy white stuff and the cold. I still have internal debates about which I dislike more, heat or cold. It’s a toss up.

Hufflepuff finished her time up in Maine this morning with another half day of downhill skiing. She really enjoyed it. Unfortunately they drove right into a snowstorm and spent 8 hours on the road. There was a big blow up there, too, and now Hufflepuff and my parents aren’t speaking. Yay. I’ve only heard one side of this story and it wasn’t good. I sent a thank you/apology to my cousin, and here’s hoping she wasn’t upset.

I’m finally starting to feel better, but 2 of my favorite authors had books come out today, so I didn’t get much done. The headache was on the edge of my brain, too. It kept starting to peak, then toning down. It was highly annoying. Hoping to actually be productive tomorrow. Really. I can’t spend an entire week in bed.

I’m trying to write this but I keep getting distracted by the girls. They’re all talking about that animé show Fairytale. Hufflepuff’s D&D group is playing their game set in the Fairytale world, and Gryffindor & Ravenclaw are obsessed with the show itself. So now they’ve been having a lively discussion for over an hour. It’s late, but they don’t have to get up early for school tomorrow. And seriously – they’re all having a good discussion with no name calling or anything negative at all! It’s hard for me to shut that down. I had always wished I had sisters growing up so I could have that sleepover-like atmosphere all the time. That’s what I wanted for my girls, and I’m a sucker when that’s happening. If they’re all happy and bonding as a group I am loathe to shut that down. Ever. It’s like how I hate to tell anyone to stop reading.

Well, I still have a bedtime, and now I’m up past it, so I will say goodnight.
