I placed my second “damaged cell phone” claim within a year (really within three months), so once I get this new phone, I am uninsured. I’ve whined below — so I’ll get over it, and be very, very careful where I set my phone down.
Moving on to breaking news: it’s really snowing. Our fairly cute but not very accurate weather dude said we’d have a couple of inches that wouldn’t stick. NOT! It’s been snowing since I went to the office at 8:30 this morning, and it’s still snowing, and is expected to continue through tomorrow. Then it will clear out tomorrow night and start again around noon on Wednesday, then snow off and on through the weekend. If that’s correct (I would not make book on it), I’ll take the dogs to the park and let them make snow devils — cute little children make snow angels, but the Cardis, and especially phone-eater-Chase, make snow devils.
I spoke to the elementary school about the little girl I saw this morning and was told “that’s how she wanted to dress and it’s okay with her parents”. Wow! That seems closer to abuse and neglect than does the action/inaction in the abuse and neglect cases I occasionally handle. Is there no one in that household that wants to make grown-up decisions?
Time to put on Chase’s man pants (we’re still doing that), and go to bed. Maybe tomorrow will be a snow day. I can remote into the office computer and do some work from home, but stay home and do some work in my home. If I don’t take care of some things around here, I expect the County will condemn the place.
