for the love of Ia and Knitting
And round two of weather begins
Ok, so I am in Ottumwa, and we have ice rain at the moment ( lunch hour , Tuesday )
So as I put on a pot roast, knit on Insanity Norwegian, I am anticipating no school for the kids tomorrow, which means they will be here, so sometime, between rows of diamonds and skulls, Im gonna make death by chocolate cookies.

It was looking pretty nasty this morning in IC, as a friend and I were eating lunch we watched it start to spit ice rain and then progressively get worse and worse. It seems to have let up for now. Sounds like a good day to start some sleeves for Avast :D

i don't know if we're going to get much in ames... i hope not. tomorrow there simply HAS to be school, because there is a band concert and the national honor society applications are due. on friday there HAS to be school because friday night my honors american lit class is having its "snob party" as my teacher calls... The Great Gatsby Party as we tell people not in hal. even though they all know it's our snob party.

so for the sake of everyone, school should stick around.

oh, and making up snow days sucks. it'll mess up europe trip departure dates, and i need them to stay where they are, if not go a day earlier. uffda.
