I just had to cancel dinner at my MIL's. Sarah's dance class was cancelled so there is no reason to leave the house and I really don't want to in this weather. The dance teacher said the roads were really bad--so why take a chance. My MIL was disappointed. Apparently her 5 other grandchildren have been left there today because all the schools are closed. This kinda bugs me--she is not a young woman and has worked hard all her life to have her watch 5 kids all day long is not fair. If the weather is bad enough for the schools to close, don't you think you'd cancel your social plans instead of going out anyways and dumping your kids at your MILs? My BIL"S wife is so selfish. I understand with my SIL because she has to work, but my BIL's wife doesn't work. What could be so important? Sorry just venting--I guess it is really none of my business.

Crappy weather, huh? Same boat here. I was hoping the roads would be salted, but I'm thinking all the municipalities have overshot their budget for the year b/c I don't think the roads are being taken care of.

I agree about your MIL. It's not fair just to dump your kids on anyone, let alone someone who's been finished with raising kids for some time now.

Any word on Sam's flight?

I agree about the roads--no sign of any snowplows or sanders here--it's been a bad winter and i think they are trying to save money now by doing the bare minimum because they know it will melt quickly.

Can you believe we still had a showing today? Unbelievable! My enighbour has their place up for sale too so they generally both get shown at the same time. We were both out there shoveling the ice and complaining about it! LOL! I guess they are serious if they are out looking in this weather!

I've been checking Pearson's site about the flights--tons are cancelled but not his so far. It's not due in until 11:55 tonight so they may not have decided about it yet.

Have a great weekend!
