Another Vacation Day?

Mom has to go back to work today, but PlusOne gets a day off from school. The school superintendent called off school because "too many streets remain littered with fallen trees and power lines." It presents a "safety issue for students, most of whom walk to school." In addition, 23 city streets are still closed. "I just don't want kids out walking on that. They could get hurt."

Mom won't argue with that, because there are still people who have no power (memere and pepere are among them) and some of them only live four blocks from us.

Memere INSISTED on folding mom's laundry today, and Pepere INSISTED on doing the dishes. I kid you not. Mom finally stopped arguing with them because it was stressing them out too much. So she let them clean. Who is mom to stand in the way of someone wanting to do the dishes?

We kept hoping Mom would get a snow day this year, but no luck! Have fun PlusOne!

We sure hope all the trees and stuff get cleaned up soon! We think it's cool that memere and pepere are staying with you guys - more laps for napping!

Your pal,

We are very happy you have power and were able to have Memere & Pepere stay with you all weekend!! We did not have much damage here. A lid blew off a biog storage bin...that was it for us and we are very happy!! We feel bad for all the beans with no power!!!
Since you have warm bodies at home today, enjoy some snuggles!!!!!!!
