2015-02-08-w:Mama-Daddy-Alison-skating2015-02-08-w:Alison-skatingBeing so miserable in our current apartment (yellowjackets, ants (twice), piece that fell off the bathroom ceiling, leaking bathroom ceiling, busted furnace, leaking radiator, and that’s not all of it), we had put the kibosh on anyone visiting until after we are able to extricate ourselves from this place.  However, since my sister came to town for a job fair, I wasn’t going to make her stay at a hotel.  She came in just in time for the third snowstorm in less than two weeks – though we basically had a snow-free winter before the blizzard that descended just twelve days ago, we have already had a whole winter’s worth of snow and we might have up to two feet arriving before Tuesday morning.  Still, we found time today to get over to our local ice rink; Thomas has been taking skating lessons for a while now and Alison’s been skating for over 20 years, so it was good for the two of them to be on the ice together.  Now, we can just wait to find out if Thomas will have his fifth snow day in the last 10 school days.
