Last night my son Tommy and his friend Ned (5th Graders) made a pact. “If tomorrow is a snow day, we’re going to go to Jack and Dan’s for lunch and we’re going to go sledding. Deal?” . Tommy exclaimed “Deal!” We all chimed in, “Who’s Buying?” :). So this morning I looked out the window and there was no new snow…..just the snow we got from the day before. I promised my son Daniel that I’d check the school website as soon as I woke up and let him know whether he had to get up for school. When I saw no new snow, I didn’t bother checking. About a half hour later, he comes walking down the stairs and says…..”You told me you’d tell me if there was no school”. He had checked it himself. Here I was making their lunches and I didn’t have to. Sure enough there was no school for either of the kids. Then I started thinking about the timing of this hip replacement. Running in the snow is good exercise but it truly is a pain. I couldn’t have picked a better time to take a break, but I’m hopeful for the spring….and testing the new hip. So with 2 bagged PB and J’s sitting on the counter, I headed off to work wondering if the boys had enough $$ to squeeze ME in for lunch at Jack and Dan’s today.
