My wife occasionally accuses me of having turned into a hermit. I can only respond, “turn into?”
But this week’s weather in Dallas just made things worse. I made a brief excursion after work on Monday — and then we didn’t leave the house again until Saturday. Normally, this wouldn’t quite get to me as much as it would to other people, per my wife’s observation. But the kids stayed at home, too, as local school districts cancelled nearly the entire week.
So today, the ice and snow have started to thaw. My mother and sister took the kids to see a movie, and here I am sipping my soy latte and blogging from a café-bookstore while pondering which e-reader to buy. Yeah, so maybe I would have envisioned a more exciting release to freedom.
But it’ll do.
