Ordinariness

I am searching my head for exciting, out-of-the-ordinary things we did today. But I can think of none. So, my readers, you will be forced to read about, well, the ordinary stuff.

So today we:

1. Discovered that younger sister does not like to be sucked with the vacuum cleaner. (I assure you I had nothing to do with this).

2.  Discovered that we really do not like the lyrics of "Away in a Manger." 

3. Pondered whether or not to ostracize the weather man. We were promised five more inches of snow, and we're still waiting...

4.  Made a snow beast. It was a pathetic beast, but still a beast. It was placed on the stone urn on the brick wall in our driveway, until one of the boys dispatched it with a snowball. I'll have to go outside tomorrow and do some forensic work.

5. Constantly checked the temperature outside. 

6. Studied things like the lymphatic system, a biography by Plutarch, and a Bach fugue and prelude. Which need to be memorized by February for a music festival.

7.  Wondered why there's a whole website devoted to the task of persuading the Obamas to adopt an animal from a shelter. This is a mystery.

ROFLOL! Glad to find out I'm not the only one with quite an interesting family! I have a whole store of blogposts - but I don't think my family would like me to post them. ;) One thing's for certain - it's never dull around here!!
