Baby It's Cold Outside
The kids are out of school today due to extreme cold.
That's right. I said cold.
The temperature this morning was 19 degrees. Ordinarily, that wouldn't call off school, but there was great fear that since there was rain yesterday that the roads would be iced over. I think they called off school prematurely, seeing as how the midwest has been experiencing blizzard after blizzard with feet of snow being dumped on them. At least we don't get much snow, if at all. The roads are dry this morning.
However, George was supposed to go with the confirmation class on a short retreat tonight and tomorrow in central Louisiana. This is the rescheduled retreat that was cancelled early in December due to the snow!
He just got a call about an hour ago from the camp director that the camp's water pipes were busted and they couldn't host the retreat. Two scheduled, two cancelled. I told George that the kids would get confirmed with or without this retreat. He just went to his office to start making calls to all of the kids.
The boys have been watching Transformers 2 this morning. I've been in my room catching up on TV shows I've recorded the last few weeks. Now I'm watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. It's an interesting movie. It kind of makes me think of Forest Gump.
At any rate, the retreat was cancelled, which is what I was really hoping for. I also hope that George doesn't try to reschedule it AGAIN!
