    Woooooo eeeeee!!
    In response to all my whining, Winter decided to teach me that old lesson, "be careful what you wish for." Today, when I got up, it was 3 degrees with a windchill of 16 below zero.

    No, I did not go running.

    I was actually pretty worried about the girls in that cold. It just seems so extreme. "Windchill of 25 below zero" they were saying. Doesn't that sound scary? When I was a kid and we were dealing with that weather, we would go warm up the car before we got in it so that we wouldn't have to be cold. I don't have that option now - we hoof it everywhere. Sometimes, the T is delayed by as much as 35 minutes.

    Turns out I freaked out for nothing. We wore all our "extras" and when e. and I walked to school at 7:20, we were fine. It was definitely COLD, and I was glad my scarf could cover my face if I needed it to. But once we were covered, we were fine.

    Tonight is our usual movie night, but the girls' school is doing a movie night, so we're going there. Things will be a whirlwind after work, because the thing starts at 6:30, and I'll have to take the girls somewhere to get dinner first. Beloved gets out of work at 6:15 or so, and will grab something to eat on his own, and show up a little late.

    Looks like the ex is coming in tomorrow, but before he gets here, I have to take e. to the cello shop, b/c she dropped it the other day, and a string snapped (grrrr, arggh). Just what I wanted to spend my weekend doing.

    I still plan to sneak off to a movie while the ex has the girls. I'll have to see what's playing at our local theater, so I don't have to worry about timing too much.

    And with that, I'm off to work. I have lots to do, and Monday is the trial that I've been working toward, so I won't be in the office. Perhaps not Tuesday or Wednesday, either. And then I have a personal day on Friday. You know, so I can go get hitched.
