Listening to: Baby, Its Cold Outside - Norah Jones and Willie Nelson
Who woulda thought when Natalie and I were in high school that I would be driving her 6 year old up to the Valley to deliver her to her Grandma? We probably didn't think we would be in the same city at age 26 let alone the children she has. In high school I dont suppose we thought about such things. It feels weird. Its even weirder when you are going back to the home town and all the memories you had there as a teenager.
Meanwhile, its Dec 10, Scotts bday morrow, and there has been no snow.
In fact, its been very hot for Dec. In Nov we had like one or two storms that left like an inch of snow and was gone within hours as the sun was out. But nothing so far in Dec. Weird. Definitely can't wear long sleeves or boots. Its like in the upper 50's and sometimes in the 60's! I was babysitting Min's kids and we went to the park around noon and it was too hot! We got all hot and tired and came back thirsty.
Are we gonna have snow for Christmas? Have we ever had a Christmas without snow before?
Sure, the one year/winter I actually buy a coat, an actual coat, and there is no winter. Well, it was a Black Friday deal and was only $25 instead of its priced $50. But still, I'm not sure I've ever really bought an actual coat before. I just wear two jackets, layered. Depending on the cold wear long sleeves underneath it all. But this is a warm coat that you can wear with short sleeve shirt or long and don't have to have a jacket underneath! But it does no good now...
I have Dal for Christmas and he's going to LA so I'm giving them Christmas early, before they go, this year. Other than that I dont really see a reason to go home for Christmas... I guess I can see what Min got me. That should be a hoot. She's a peculiar girl.
