Good Lord it is cold out there. I've got a reading of 9 degrees F but the wind is so strong, I am betting with wind chill it feels like -10.
The kids all just left after spending the evening here. I made chicken broccoli alfredo over pasta with garlic bread for dinner, and had a couple of movies to choose from to watch. But we got a card game going and we all just played until it was time to call it a night. Of course, calling it a night only pertained to the old folks, since the night was just beginning for the kids, who were all going to a friend's house for a party. I love having the kids around, but frankly, I welcome the time when they go their merry way too. I think I've had my house to myself way too long now, because sometimes the noise gets on my nerves. They tend to forget they are around a parental figure sometimes, which is a good thing I guess, but I am not a huge fan of the language and name calling (all in fun of course) they use around each other. I had to remind them a couple of times...hey mom in the room. All in all, though, I do like the fact that they still enjoy coming over to hang out with ole mom once in awhile.
Cal is about to fire up one of those movies so I am going to join him and take advantage of the body heat.
