I purchased a latching lid container to foil those kitty thumbs only to find that Hubs forgot to put the lid on, giving Miss Kitteh full access to the food-- again! UGH!
The lid ain't gonna work if we don't use it people!
It was -3.6 F when I woke up on Friday morning with a biting wind chill and wonder of wonders-- WE HAD SCHOOL! Color me shocked. My cousin said that her daughter's teacher told her that the kids had to stop missing school and that they just needed to get used to the cold. At this point, it's not getting any better. We're in a cycle and it's cold. Above zero feels like a breezy day, so it is what it is. My coat is filthy because it has been too cold to risk washing it and not drying it fully before I have to go out again. K's is the same. In fact, I'm going to try to sneak them into the wash here in just a bit.
To note, I did double check with the office staff and our guidance counselor to make certain that all kids have coats and that they don't need any. I reminded them that the PTA has money set aside for such things and if they need, please let us know. We don't want any child running around without a coat. Brrr.
Finally, I try not to be a big horn tooter with this because we know where we've been and how it feels to be there, but look at what K brought home:
|The "O's" stand for outstanding and they are for social skills and study habits. :)|
ETA: The coats are laundered! HOORAY!
