Welcome to Three Thing Thursday, the Winter Vacation Edition, where I try to think of something to say and you share whatever is on your mind.
My mind appears to be
1. We survived Christmas, barely, before being pummeled by a blizzard. That was all fine and dandy, that blizzard, because it forced some very spectacular napping. The best part of all is I took off work this week. Oh, how sweet it is, this thing called
2. Next, the focus was on quality time with the Chesapeake Bay Children, which was wonderful but not without the typical CBW trials and tribulations that my son and daughter now come to expect with any sort of adventure I propose.
3. One of the adventures involved ice skating, which I love because it reminds me somewhat of roller skating, evidently an extinct sport.
Anyone who regularly reads this blog knows that
3b. Anywho, regardless of the fact that ice skating and roller derby are not even kissing cousins, CBW performed about an hour's worth of her best speed skating/pretend roller derby routine in the hamster cage of a rink

*When I started writing this, I had no idea I'd be talking about the Ice Skating Incident, rife with stress and therefore the perfect fuel to jump start my blogging embers. So never mind that opening paragraph about not having anything to say. I don't have anything to talk about except my two bruised knee caps and one embarrassed son. In other words, it's an ordinary day around here.
** "Globbed" is most definitely a word, located on page 612 in CBW's Dictionary of Ridiculosity, coming soon to book stores near you.
