Turns out everyone got a three-day weekend. The snow had started falling around 4 am this morning. We woke Dad up when it started so we could go out and check it out right away. Dad wasn't too pleased with getting up at 4 am so we could play in the snow.
At 6, his alarm went off and he got out of bed to get ready for work. Mom found out school was on a 2-hour delay so she went back to sleep and had Dad reset her alarm for 7:30. Dad left for work a little earlier than usual. After picking up some cardboard boxes from the neighbors yard that had blown around in the wind overnight and putting them back with our garbage, he got in the car. Twenty minutes later, he was back. Turns out, he had gone 2 miles towards his 27 mile trip to work. It had taken him 10 minutes and he slid around a bit too much for his liking. He got home, and sent his boss and HR department an email that he was using a sick day for the snow. Shortly after, Mom got a call that school had changed from a 2-hour delay to closed.
Mom said she hoped the new Wii would show up sooner than later so that they could spend the day playing. We were really excited because the last box that got delivered to the house had a new collar and leash for Brook, new leash for Canyon, new bed for Brook and a new dish for her too. We were hoping that this Wii thing was something for us.
A few minutes later, we heard a truck outside. Woo-woo, the Wii! Oh, darn - just the trash truck.
Mom, looking for something to do, started to clean out the cupboards and figuring out if there was old food in there which wasn't any good anymore. She found some chocolate chips and the little biped asked for cookies. Mom told her that she could have cookies, but someone would have to help her make them. Mom graciously volunteered Dad for that job.
Brook thought that the cookies smelled really good and wanted to try. She didn't know we wouldn't get any because chocolate isn't for doggies.
Around 2pm, the big brown truck showed up! The Wii got here!
Here's the little biped getting to play.
The Wii hasn't been off since it got here. The little biped was so tired out by bed time from all the jumping around that she was doing that she went right to sleep as soon as her head hit the pillow.
Well, back to watching the bipeds play sports games.
