Okay, how's this for drama? We had a crazy time the other day, but managed to get a lot done and have fun, to boot, though A mentioned that the frenzied pace can be a drag. I agree, wholeheartedly.
First off, we had to deal with the registration on my Mentor's car. Everything was up to speed on it except that the registration expired on New Year's Eve. I figured we could slide for a day or two into the new year, but why push our luck. Now the registration was going to Mentor's mailbox, but since he was out of town, he had a friend retrieving his mail. I had to get to the mail via his friend then sift through it to find the registration. This was a whole rigmarole in itself, which I won't bore you with (too late?), but suffice it to say, it was a chore.
We had several errands to run, so I figured that join the list, though in retrospect, it might have been wiser to take care of the registration first. We hit the local coop to get our organic fix, then to Stern's for veggies, then the video store to return our New Year's Eve movies. Since the mailbox was near the ski hill, of course we weren't going to pass up a chance at the sled hill. It would have been even better if the ski hill were open, but no such luck.
The sled hill was fun, but we were the only ones there, and to be honest with you, part of pleasures of the snow is to enjoy it with friends. It was lonely. After a few runs, we decided to get out of there, go home and get our ice skates, and then hit the rec center.
We did just that, and had a blast, because it was no longer lonely. You really need a critical mass of kids before real fun begins. We're lucky to know where to go.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks for reading, and thanks to Julia Freeman-Woolpert for the pic.
