late starts and no sleep
It's been a weird couple of days. Yesterday started out with us wondering whether to send Mas on the van to school...mainly because spending a day stuck in a ditch with Mas can't be on anyone's list of Fun Things To Do. We decided, okay, we'll send him. They left, and about five minutes later, there was a knock on the door...they were back. They had only driven a few miles away when they got the call from the bus company to come back. You can imagine how happy Mas was to come back home....argh. LOTS of crying, tears, anger, frustration. Lots of me saying, "There's no school today! No one is there! You'll have school tomorrow!" Today greets us with a two hour late start, which could have made for a tricky morning with Mr. Schedule...but, the graters that cleaned off the streets ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT woke him up at 3:25 AM, and he stayed awake until 7 am. So, he is blissfully asleep right now, at 8:26 am, which is totally unprecedented. Should make for a fun time tonight, when he won't want to go to sleep! To make the story of a long two days short, I think we're ready for the January thaw.
