Snow day

Schools in Columbus were cancelled on Monday and Tuesday this week because of cold. Oh well. I was just a bystander, a disinterested observer. Until today, when there was actually a bit of snow on the ground and schools were cancelled again. Which led Westerville Rec to cancel day classes. Which meant no ballet. Oh no!

We tried to build snow critters but this snow was uncooperative. So we rustled up a sled and went to a city-sanctioned sledding hill for the best sledding I have ever seen. We got there at about 11am and there were probably 50 people there. By the time we left around 1pm the crowd had tripled at least and everyone was still having a great time. The hill for trudging up was no picnic, but all the other people were being very cheerful about it so I pretended to enjoy it, too.

Home for lunch, post office, library, and then we stopped at a grocery store to get stuff to make cookies to send to Jennifer (I don't know if she'll be excited to get cookies, but it was the most practical of Victoria's ideas for a Valentine present). I just got a mix, Betty Crocker chocolate chip, but they turned out fine.

Tomorrow is a looking at houses day.

Very reassuring, coming from the expert!

Yep, although my parents pointed out that the postage on a cookie-filled care package cost more than the contents.

Depending on the type of cookie ;)

I've never had ingredients and postage together exceed $20, even for the big boxes of molasses rum cookies. And just about anyone is worth $20 ;)

Maybe I'll make molasses rum cookies this weekend. Mm.

These are seriously cheap cookies. We have accounts at the same bank; I could just transfer $1.69 to her account and let her figure out the Happy Valentines message on her own. But then she might think too hard and end up with: "What, I'm not worth $20?" and I'd have some backpedaling to do.

Molasses rum cookies. Oh yeah!

I read the last line as looking for houses on eBay... Which was weird.

Well they've got plenty on Craigslist, but they're mostly flips gone bad.

eBay has a real estate category, but it's more like a section of ads. Somehow, bids are nonbinding or something like that. I'm looking at a craigslist house this weekend, though. I reallysortamildly wish we had tossed to older kids to the wolves and sold the house in Maryland. It would be fun to be a rich person buying a house here.
