We Survived

Our second trek out of the house today was more successful than the first. We had rescheduled Evan’s appointment, and while I couldn’t make it up the hill in our little Civic, I was able to build momentum to go down, and then back up the other side, and took the circuitous route to the doctor. Evan is okay, no RSV, just a bad cough that should clear up in a few more days.
By the time we made it back home again, the plows had finally made it to our street, and it was clear as a bell. Except for the giant pile of snow they left at the end of the driveway. I had fun smashing through that, with snow spraying up all over the windshield.
By the time we got home, I had also gotten a call from Verizon saying they needed to reschedule the FIOS installation. No surprise there, but it was nice that they at least called to reschedule, and within the 8-12 window when they were supposed to show up. I couldn’t tell you how many times technicians from the cable company or whoever just didn’t bother to show up or call. At any rate, we’re hoping to get it done Friday afternoon.
Ellie and I just came back inside from making snow angels and shoveling the rest of the driveway. The snow is really heavy because it’s so wet, so my back is aching pretty good right now. It’s so heavy that Ellie barely made a dent when she flopped back into it to make the snow angel. She just kind of rested on top of the snow. And now she walking around the house with her snow pants on, for some unknown reason. I am a lucky guy to have such cute kids, and a wonderful wife too!
