As for the chocolate cherries, in the past I would have said, "Okay, I blew it," then gone on to have spaghetti and garlic bread or something equally carb-loaded for dinner, telling myself I'd start again in a week or so.
The bad news is: Only about 30 students came to the dance. (But they had fun!)
The good news is: The dance ended at 10pm due to low attendance, so I got home an hour earlier than expected!
Here's almost half the crowd doing the Funky Monkey, some new-fangled hip-hop line dance thingy.

Besides, my life is filled with the love of a wonderful family and great friends. How do you ignore that?

Perhaps you can tell I love snow. Although I played in the snow a few times as a child, I never truly saw falling snow until we moved here to the White Mountains. Ever since then, those fat flakes softly, silently falling have felt like magic to me. I took this video on Sunday morning when the current weather pattern moved into our area. It's been snowing off and on since then, and last night we got about 10 inches more so school was cancelled today.
This was in February 1962. I was 7 years old and LeRoy was about a month from his 3rd birthday.
This is me this morning heading into the backyard. I'm a lot bigger now and the snow is a lot deeper!
Diego also adores the snow. Here is Sarah kicking up the snow, which he loves to leap up and catch in his mouth. By the time they're done playing, he looks like the Abominable Snowdog!
