So they were in town all weekend and spent last night with friends and we got to keep The Nephew all for ourselves! We played some Wii and man, I need to get back on that because I could tell how much my shoulder has tightened up since I stopped playing. Also, I suck and need to practice because that was just a sad show. Then we played some X-Men UNO - (yes, they are UNO cards with X-Men on them!). At one point, The Nephew had to draw a bunch of cards and he goes, really quiet and conspiratorially, "I am such a hacker. You don't even know the cards I am getting right now. One of this and one of that. Man, I am just hacking it." I don't know what he thinks that word means! He continued to tell us throughout the game, "I'm a total hacker, you guys. You don't even know." He heard that word somewhere and thinks it applies to anytime he is being stealth, which I guess, in a way, it could work like that. Man, I love that kid.
In weather news, it is basically the apocalypse. Last Sunday it was 9 degrees outside - (which, in Fahrenheit, means more than 20 degrees below freezing). Then it started sleeting. Then snowing. And then in the early morning hours, sleeting again. Which, of course, left a layer of ice, covered by snow, covered by more ice. It went all the way up to 20 degrees on Monday, but the roads kept a lot of people home, including my sister. On Tuesday, I woke up to 57 degrees outside, an almost 40 degree bump up overnight, and thunderstorms all day long. The temps have been slowly going back down all week and are currently at about 20 degrees outside. Also, it has been basically snowing non-stop since Friday afternoon. It hasn't been crazy snow or anything, just a near-constant downward drift of white fluff that has resulted in about 4 inches of snow so far. Apparently it is going to continue doing this, 2 to 4 inches a day, every day, until Thursday. The end result of which will be over a foot of snow.
IDEK. But hey, I saw the sun for about ten minutes today and that is the first sighting of it in about ten days, so yay that!
