This may be painfully premature, but I get the distinct impression that winter is over. Not only can we see our driveway, but the other day we went to the rec center skating rink as well as out neighbor's pond, and both of them were un-skate-able. Talk about a bummer, but winter is done, and mud season is on the way.
I realize that it's only February, and we could easily get socked with snow in March or April. In fact, we probably will, but the winter was noticeably deficient in snow.
And, the kids are done with skiing. N, of all people, the skiing machine, no longer wants to ski, which, of course, means dad no longer gets to ski. Wah!
On to the next activity. We went to the indoor pool the other day and though I'm cynical about that place (too much like Disneyland), everyone had fun, and it's a great way for them to get exercise, at least until they can swim outside. Also, there were tons of kids, and they have wireless internet, so I could conceivably work on my computer while they swim. Not a bad idea.
We'll see where this one goes, but we have to replace skiing and ice skating, and until the ground thaws and dries out, our bikes will stay in storage.
Until the next time, thanks for reading.
