Well, not really. Two "too cold to be outside in the morning" days and one snow day.
So Bagel, Salamander and I went to visit friends a couple hours away in a city that is just as cold but has more snow. :) Their dad was on the east coast on business until last night anyhow, so it was an especially tempting opportunity to get out of Dodge!
We went to the science center (took Bagel's little friend, ummm... Salami) and a children's museum (Salami had to go back to school, but my kids had a blast).
Got home at 1am this morning. I had no business driving home last night, but Bagel DID have to go to school this morning, and she gets to leave early for a dentist appointment.
My 2000 Sienna has been voicing its displeasure with the persistent below-freezing weather. It won't start in the morning, or if it's been sitting outside for a few hours (like at the Children's Museum, ugh...) But if I push in and release the emergency brake it tends to wake up. Since I had an incident about a month ago where the van wouldn't turn off (OFF!), my dad thinks it's part of the key something or other (not the ignition). I don't think I want to go so far away from home with the kids again until it's fixed...
Life in the big city, LOL.
