Getting Nowhere.... Fast!

You probably sat in your nice cozy home last night during the snow storm watching all the stupid people venture out into the bleakness to play chicken with fate, right? We were those stupid people!

We had a choir rehearsal last night, and since we get money toward our Europe trip if we attend all rehearsals, we felt we had to go. We got into our car at 6:00 pm and slowly ventured out into the fray, heading toward 7500 South. (we are on 2800 S.) I suggested we take State Street there instead of the freeway because at 6pm I knew the freeway would be bumper-to-bumper. Merritt said we should take the freeway, and since he's "always" right, we took the freeway. Of course, it was bumper-to-bumper! We got off at 33rd south and headed toward State Street. By 6:30 we had made it to State Street. By 6:45 we were already at 39th south! At a little after 7, we had made it to 45th south. By 7:15, we were near 6200 S, but Eason had to go Potty. We pulled over at a Christian book store- (which, incidentally had no Sherri Dew books!) and when we got back on the road, it was almost 7:30. About 15 minutes later we finally pulled into the parking lot of the church we were rehearsing at.

So, at trip that normally takes us 10 minutes took us an hour and 40 minutes!!!! It was a great night. Today, I get to meet with Eason's teacher. After last night, I'm in a GREAT mood!

Oh my word!

We went across the street to a neighbors house last night, but that's as far as our venturing took us. ;)

I'm totally ready for SPRING!

I got stuck on top of a snow bank. I waited forever for help and it took six guys to push me out.

Did I mention that I was on my way to my eleventyhundredth Mary Kay party.

So, I feel for you. UG.
