From the "what were we thinking" file

Thing Two wanted to try ice skating.  Why, we have no idea since neither Hubby nor I are skaters.  But since the area mall has a skating pond we decided to let him try.

Suffice to say, it didn't go so well.  He took a tumble early on and used his hands to brace his fall.  No break but jammed it enough to increase his fear and bring on the "I'm done" attitude within minutes of hitting the ice.  

The ironic part was that Thing One who had insisted "I don't ice skate" had a good time.

Yep...just when you think you have your kids figured out, they change the rules!  

Other than that, it's been a quiet weekend.  I played party pooper and cancelled our trip to the mountains.  Forecast for huge amounts of snow made me think being on the roads wasn't the smartest thing we should be doing.  Of course, as luck would have it,  the weather here in town has been marvelous (colder than earlier in the week, but still blue skies yesterday, dry roads).  Making me look like a giant worry wart.  Oh well, my bank account thanks me for being cautious...even if Hubby has enjoyed putting me on the guilt trip!  :)

Stay warm, stay safe..
