just to get by, just to get by…

the title of this post is from a talib kweli song, fyi. anyway, today was a "snow day." forecasters had predicted up to 10 inches of snow and most schools closed, but all we received was a few inches of snow; the road is still visible. it was just disappointing because one of our favorite… Continue reading just to get by, just to get by…
