In Which It's Snowing

I was planning on mowing my lawn today, but then it started snowing so I had to change my plans.  I think the weather always knows when I've got yard work on my schedule.  Not that I would have been able to mow anyway, as there was no way I could park Connor outside while I did it.  He was too busy sleeping.

Yes, I attempted to get the kid up around eight or so, but he was so miserable and tired that I finally put him back down.  He immediately fell back asleep and was out until past eleven in the morning.  He was supposed to have occupational therapy this morning, but we ended up canceling due to the fact that my child was comatose, and also that right before we were supposed to leave it started snowing so hard you couldn't really see anything. 

So we holed up for the day instead, and spent our time alternating between snuggling by the fireplace and-- once Connor finally decided to wake up-- banging on that mixing bowl.  I'm beginning to think I'm just going to need to get the little guy his own personal mixing bowl, because I'm not sure I'm ever going to get mine back.  He needed big breaks in between drumming sessions though, because he was still really tired.  I think he's probably in the middle of a run of seizures and while the Ativan is keeping them under control it's still wiping him out for whatever reason. 

The snow is supposed to slow down; the weatherman predicts one or two more inches tonight.  We'll see whether or not he actually has school tomorrow.  I'm hoping he'll be able to go, but it's pretty likely they'll cancel if the snow sticks to the ground.  Snowy weather is not something they have a whole lot of around here.  I don't really mind driving in it because I'm from Texas, and Texans are born with an overinflated opinion of their driving ability in bad weather.  Especially if they have four-wheel drive.  Four-wheel drive solves all problems.

We'll just have to see!

There are a whole bunch of drum apps available for the IPad. I wonder if Connor would like one of them?
