Shoveling the driveway was a problem, as I kept sliding down the hill. This is definitely not a driveway for a snow blower: it's too steep and too dangerous. If you started sliding, the machine would eat you. Basically, we'll hold steady until the boys get old enough to handle the shoveling for me. I like the exercise, for sure, and I like the little bit of solitude and quiet.
The Boy came outside and helped me shovel a little bit as I was finishing up. We went sledding down the hill of our street a bit, which was problematic: we came far, far too close to ending up underneath cars parked in the street. So, after a couple of attempts, we stopped. We made some snow angels and had a little bit of a snowball fight. It's awesome that he's old enough to play in the snow.
Neither boy napped yesterday, so we had the two older boys in bed by 8:15 or so. I was in bed asleep by 9:30, which is a rarity. As such, I could wake up and work out first thing in the morning - getting up at 6 wasn't a problem. I had 8.5 hours of sleep, after all. I re-shoveled, and we had breakfast at the Bagel Factory using a Grandma-supplied Groupon before the boys went to their swimming lesson.
They went sledding this afternoon at the park. The Wife sent me a video. It was epic.
