Icky weather and xbox Live addiction

While I know other parts of the country have already had snow, I am simply not in the mood for winter weather, at least not just yet.

This afternoon and evening, we have been treated to snow, sleet, and freezing rain. The roads are utterly crappy. Grendel has a standing meeting on Sunday evenings 25 minutes north of our house. I have been struggling all weekend with some particularly excrutiating pain in my left rear hip. The weather and pain combined so that I begged off on driving 25 minutes each way and sitting around in the church for two hours in between.

He doesn't seem devastated, only mildly disappointed. Could it be that he's looking forward to three additional hours of xbox live? The boy has been on that game system about forty hours since Wednesday evening. I'm not sure what came first, chicken or the egg, here. But, maybe he's stocking up on xbox time this weekend because he is not allowed to play it during the week? At all!

Hope everyone had a restorative holiday weekend.

our son is in twitchy, xbox withdrawal. He got the dreaded "red rings of death" and the xbox is now at microsoft, being repaired. We have no idea how long it will take to get it back, but it can't come soon enough for me. I never thought I would miss the damn thing, but I do, because it makes the boy *happy*.
