Ice Skating and Snow

We finally had some snow this year, and Hers Truly was excited to play it. We even played Angry Birds. She hid under the patio table and I tried to hit her with snowballs. At first, I tried to not hit her, but eventually, realizing just how awful my throwing was, I didn't even have to do that.

Randomly, Hers Truly wanted to ice skate. We went to the skating rink, spent $16, got 2/3 around, and she was done. Mind you, getting 2/3 around took half an hour.

Have you ever gone ice skating by holding onto a small child for half-an-hour? Exhausting.

The novel editing proceeds. The middle is still rougher than I would prefer. Either end looks good. *sigh* More work than I want to do. I'm still slicing stuff out, though. The work is better for it.
