My day

First it started with some anxiety really early, like an ungodly hour. I wake up way earlier than I ever used to having issues. Anyway I took some xanax and fell to sleep for a couple hours.

I had errands to run, things to do, places to go. I was all dressed up and went to start the car and it was deader than a doornail.

So that put a wrench in my plans.

After Jason got home he jumped it, turns out there was a light left on and it killed the battery.

I took the van and  two kids and went to JcPenney's, which is near where we used to live.

It's no big deal except that it started to snow.

While we were shopping it snowed a lot. The ground was covered, it was thick and slushy.

I don't like snow and really don't care to drive in it. I figured after leaving PA that I wouldn't ever have to drive in it.
Who knew?

So I saw someone in the ditch on my way home.

Once I got to the freeway it was just really wet, kind of slushy but enough traffic that it wasn't snow covered.

Still, I was a little nervous, drove between 40 and 50 mph, which is what the flow was.

I thought that since my plans were derailed that I wasn't supposed to go out then. I have learned that these things happen for reasons I do not know.

But then to be thrust into a situation that I am uncomfortable with makes me wonder as well.

I said ok God, get me home safe!

All is well :)

To make things even more odd, the snow turned to rain, the temps went up, it is raining and snow is on the ground.
Go figure!

At least you made it home safe with no incident. We are supposed to get the big snow today here in Michigan. We shall see.
