I Need To Move Somewhere Warm

It was 8 degrees Fahrenheit this morning, here in beautiful Northeast Pennsylvania.

It's expected to drop to -5 snot-freezing degrees tonight.

I think there's an expected high of 15 by Friday.

I need to move somewhere warm.

It's Not Easy Being Teen

Mom: “Wait for the school bus to stop before walking in front of it, okay? “

Teenager: “What's the big deal? The bus isn't going to hit me.”

Mom: “You don't know that. The road's icy. Just wait by the car til the bus stops.”

Teenager: “It takes too long! If I wait til the bus stops, I'll hold up everyone else.”

Mom: “You're only 20 feet away. It takes about 5 seconds to get from the car to the bus! This isn't Speed .”

Teenager: “Can I sprint to the bus once it stopped?

Mom: “Sure, if you want to skid on the ice and fall on your butt. Imagine how long you'll hold everyone up if you break your neck? Or get hit by a car?”

Teenager: “Mom!” That's not going to happen! You worry too much.”

Mom: “Sorry. It's my job.”

In Real Life

Forgive me if posting is light. We're implementing the largest conversion ever at work, and it's had me working 16 hour days.

I'm hoping to be back to normal again by Thursday :)
