You know what?

First of all ... listening to the delay list this morning (because we got some snow yesterday .... you know, it starts to warm up and then there's snow because it was just too damn cold for it to snow the other two calamity days) ... why does a "Digital Academy" have a two-hour delay? Isn't this the same thing as homeschooling through the public school system? I'm scratching my head at that one.

Oh yes ... and for my locals ... don't forget ... tomorrow is a TWO-HOUR IN SERVICE delay day. Yes it is, ladies.

Then there is this: the Monkey has the quite the imagination. The other day, I was helping her change her shirt and I noticed a really nasty looking scab on her back. She is constantly falling down off of things ... her sister's bunk bed ladder, her sister's dresser, her dresser, her brother's dresser (and lest you wonder, these are all attached to the walls, thank goodness), you name it, she climbs on it.

So I commented to her about this nasty boom boom on her back, and she felt back there and with the world's straightest face, she said "you know what" (she prefaces EVERYthing she says with this phrase and doesn't appreciate it when I respond with "I know a lot of things") "Grammy bit me!"

First of all, Grammy hasn't been here since the end of December/beginning of January, so I think she is out of running just for sheer geographical purposes.

Now, in times past if she has had some boom boom somewhere on her body, she will comment "a locust bit me" or "the dog bit me." We don't have any dogs, and by golly, if there is a locust in here, I would be screaming.

So yesterday when she felt her back again and felt the scab, she said "you know what... Grammy didn't bite me. A snake bit me."

Great. I'm thinking I need to call Critter Control.

You know, I've determined that the school superintendent had one hell of a hangover from his Super Bowl party and just wanted two free days off school. The kids are back in today and although the main temp this morning was warmer (only -1 when the kids ventured out for school), we still had the -20 wind chill. And that is what they said was the excuse for not going Mon & Tues. The wind chill.

Yeah, right. It was probably more like the beer craps.

Oh, and they will be off Monday of next week for all-day teacher in-service. *rolling eyes*

I've already planned to call in sick on Friday and enjoy a quiet day at home without any kids.

Sue, sounds like a good idea.

Robin... UGH!!!! Not again. I meant to ask you about it, but seeing as had our scrapbook supply goggles on yesterday, I didn't think anything about it.

Yes it is. She amended her story some this morning to it being a green snake that was in her bed that bit her while she was sleeping and it went "ssss" when it was there, and then Mommy came in and scared it off.

I'm the modern day version of St. Patrick!
