Crazy Weather and Missing Some Friends

I'm not sure what to make of this weather. It's an unbelievably balmy 40 degrees outside, and all of our beautiful snow is melting. Makes skiing a bit of challenge, but not impossible. They are supposed to have a big winter carnival in Hanover this weekend and I'm not sure how the weather is going to affect the plans. We're having our big Tiki Ski night, as well, and the trails are in pretty bad shape. I'm guessing they'll only get worse by this weekend with the rain and all, so it's kind of a bummer, but you've got to make the most of it. We may end up walking to the XC ski party.

We have sort of lost touch with a number of people, and we'd love to see them again. First off, C. Where did she go? We got a call from her Sunday but we'd just walked in the door from a day of skiing and just weren't ready for a last minute playdate, so hopefully we'll get to see her, maybe today, but who can say? The Macs we've completely lost touch with. It's hard because they're in Norwich and A seems to take lack of effort personally. They are so incredibly busy with five kids, anyway, it's a miracle to work things out, anyway, so our meetings tend to be happenstance, and since we don't go to the library much during the week, we don't see them. Even still, it would be nice to touch base. I guess I could always call...

The Hartland rec has been a great place to go to, though, and I've been told that come Spring, the place is hopping. I love the fact that the kids have fun there, and it's so close by. Come Spring I think we can even ride our bikes, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Otherwise, we're still plugging along. Not feeling so great about the state of the world and I'm trying to be optimistic about Obama's plans. In the end, what else do we have? Until then, thanks for reading.
