A winter blast is coming. The weather forecast predicted it days (if not a week) in advance... with a high likelihood of snow in Texas. How exciting! Or so we thought.
By Monday morning, Presidents' Day, the snow and cold weather came. We woke up to no electricity which went out around 1 a.m. Good thing the kids already had the day off or else everyone would've been late for school. Naturally, we played in the rare Texas snow.
My mom has a problem. She can’t seem to let go and stop babying us. I appreciate the things she does for us but sometimes it’s a bit too much. Overwhelming. Smothering. It’s been a work in progress, and she has gotten better, but she still does things that make me say, “What are you doing?!”
Lynn officially joined the 40 club. To celebrate, I invited her family over for dinner and cooked some of my best food. On the weekend we took a quick getaway to Austin. Actually, we stayed at a house in the middle of a 200+ acre working ranch outside of the city. Cattle, horses, and chickens... livin' that Texas cowboy life.
Thanks to one student testing positive for COVID-19 in Andrew's class, he now has to quarantine for 14 days. He seemed fine but we got him tested (PCR) just to be sure, which came back negative. But according to the school district, he couldn't return anyway.
A negative test result after close contact exposure does not replace the need to quarantine and monitor for symptoms. Ugh. So with the winter break in a couple of weeks, Andrew is not coming back to school until 2021. Lucky him. 😑
