Taking advantage of an ice-day

My obliviousness to the news apparently runs to the weather as well. Kelly mentioned something about inclement weather last night, but I didn’t think much of it. When I went to bed last night, I could hear the ice on the windows. But I got up this morning, showered, and got ready for work. I was about to go out and defrost the car when Kelly asked me to check if the Little Man’s school was close: and it turned out it was. I went to warm the car and scrape off ice and by the time I was done, I decided it was too dangerous to get out on the roads and try and drive the 5 miles to the office. So I took an emergency day and am staying home with the Little Man. We sat on the couch for more than an hour, cuddled up, on the verge of napping and it was very, very nice.

In between cuddles, I’m trying to take advantage of the extra time today: mostly by working on “Rescue”. I’m nearly finished with my read-through of the original NaNoWriMo version of the story and I’ll report more on that once I finish the reading. I also hope to get the first words of the new novelette version of the story started today.

The Little Man is currently on the couch with an apple bar and juice, watching Special Agent Oso. Kelly is upstairs working. And I’m putting on the Bose noise-canceling headphones (I can only take so much Playhouse Disney) and getting back to work on “Rescue”.

I really hope the mail is delivered today.
