It's time that you won...
A child is born...

The weather outside is frightful...

To everybody that wished me well yesterday, my sincere thanks. I do appreciate your concern and I wanted to let you know that I'm doing better. My side still hurts a bit and coughing/sneezing are still actions I'd prefer to avoid if at all possible. But, after nearly a million milligrams of ibuprofen and wearing IcyHot patches like a fashion accessory, I am doing better.

This is why I love blogging. Most of us have never met and yet we all give a damn.

So thank you all again.

Totally Unrelated Aside (TUA): Oh how I hated driving home from work yesterday. The snow was dumping on us and the roads were horrendous. I think my 40 minute commute was doubled. Literally. In all, I think we received probably close to eight or nine inches of snow at our house with more predicted throughout the weekend.

But it was funny, every hour, Katie would peak out the back door and stick a pencil in the snow to measure it. After the pencil disappeared entirely, she gave up.

Oh, and no snow angels. Not this time anyway.

Getting to work today was surprisingly easy. It took 10 minutes longer than normal, but that was still a lot less than I expected. The roads were really empty. But, then again, most schools were closed and I'm guessing a lot of parents stayed home. So only the truly insane morons were still making the commute in to work.

Oh wait...

But I do wonder about one thing... Why does it seem that snowstorms always occur on the way home from work as opposed to happening on the way to work? Why is that? When you want to get someplace, you can't. But, driving to work this morning, the snowfall was practically non-existent. Sure, the roads were still terrible overall, but I could at least get to where I needed to be.

Not where I wanted to be, mind you. Lord knows I could've handled a snowday spent at home in my pajamas huddled up with Katie and a big ol' mug of hot chocolate.

I can dream.

glad you're on the mend. would have been much better if you could have stayed home. snuggling and hot cocoa make everything better.

and why is it that the snow dumps on the way home? that's a strange phenomenon!

enjoy your weekend and be safe, my friend.

Hmmmm. Good point about snow storms.
Take care--glad you got home safe last night!!

kilax

I feel ya on that commute. I accompanied Steven last night to keep him company during the storm. This means I got off the ON-TIME train to sit in a car with my husband for the three hours it took us to drive home. Aren't I nice? I am happy I got to be with him

metalmom

It's not about how many inches you get, it's how you deal with them that counts.;)

Glad to hear that you're feeling better!

Eileen Dover

I'm not liking the fact that you both got all my snow, and I am sitting here with a measly two inches.

august

We had a snow day and I snuggled all day myself with a hot cup of coffee and marshmallow mocha cream... mmmmm... oh, am I living your dream? Sorry ;)

Bec

We had about 10 minutes of snow but it was magical. The whole office stopped and stared out of the window... but then it rained and washed it all away. Tomorrow though it's supposed to snow a lot more! And I don't drive so I can say hurrah!

francesdanger

I'm glad you are feeling better.

As for the snow, it hit us minimally last night, but enough that it impacted my party. I don't remember authorizing that.

kapgar

sizzle, I plan to be safe. You do the same. BTW, I downloaded the rest of the Gemma Hayes album. God I love it!

diane, freaky how it works, isn't it?

kilax, you are a truly wonderful wife. But don't make it a habit or Steven will expect it all the time and the rest of the women in the world will hate you for the precedent you're setting. ;-)

metalmom, I'm not sure I should touch that one. At all. ;-)

Eileen, hell, you can have it!

august, now that's just mean.

Bec, only 10 minutes?? We may have had 10 minutes without snow.

frances, time to put the smack down on Mother Nature! Nobody screws with a Frances party!
