On the last day of school before Christmas break, little T.R. was the first one to come in the room. As he's taking off is hat, scarf and coat, he says, "Aw, Mrs. L., I got a raw sweater on today!" (For those not up on the Englewood-isms, raw would be the equivalent of 'really awesome' or 'really cool.') He then takes of his coat and I see this:
How cute is this kid!? He always wears the cutest 'school clothes.' He usually wears a navy blue sweater vest over his white uniform shirt, and he always looks so cute. Apparently, on this last day before break, his mom decided he didn't need to wear his uniform. She opted, instead, for the Cliff Huxtable sweater!
This is a picture I snapped this morning as I was walking out to go to work. What do you think? There's at least a foot of snow on my furniture, right?
This one might be from the next day...
I should be embarrassed that you can see what a complete mess my kitchen is, but what the hey. And, the stairs look horrid cuz they had all the tile stripped off of them during the basement remodel, and I have yet to have them finished. I'm planning on carpeting them, since I have a tendency to fall down them at least once a week. :(
OK, this one I know is from Christmas. I was trying to show how blustery it was. I think we were having 40 MPH winds that day. I was trying to capture the snow blowing off the roof of the garage.
Same day, just more video...
I have no freakin' idea why the hell I took this video. I almost deleted it, but then I realized it gives a pretty good snapshot of what my very typical Chicago neighborhood looks like. Notice all the Chicago bungalows, all in a row!!
OK, this video I took while driving home from my parents' house Christmas night. Well, technically, since it was after 4am, it was the day after Christmas. I'm pretty sure I posted about how bad the roads were that night. It kinda looks like the streets are wet, but they are actually completely covered in ice. It was like driving across a hockey rink!
This was from this morning.
OK, if you're still with me, you're a real trooper! This was probably one of the most boring posts I've ever done!! But, at least my camera is empty :)
