Winter arrives in Emo

Yesterday marked the real beginning of winter. A half-inch of ice overnight left the roads almost unnavigable, and made me going to work today Naga…Naga….Nagannahappen. Tonight, it got better. As of 12:00 CST, we’ve got five inches of snow, plus the ice. Fortunately, the snow has given the the ice some surface traction, so driving is much better.
And, I love the snow, so I’m happy. I had to restrain myself from going out for a cruise in the Jeep tonight.
Funny Naomi story from the weekend: as many know, we’re in the midst of potty training, with limited success thus far. On Saturday, when she went down for her nap. No nap, but she did pinch a load in her diaper. Nice. Even better? How about trying to change herself with the door closed, covering herself, the carpet, the rug, the table, and using an ENTIRE package of diaper wipes in the process? Oooo, it was a fun day in our house.
We did laugh, however — once the carpet shampooer was away, the girl was bathed (again), and the room returned to its normal, non-crapified chaos. We didn’t laugh as much Sunday, however, when she did it again. The ultimate in gotchas? Naomi, standing there in virtually the identical mess, looking at her mother and announcing, “Momma — no wipes!” That’s right kid — ’cause you used them all the first time around. Thanks for the info.
