Holy Snow Batman!

Wow, the snow out there is insane!

This morning I go to start my car and am shocked by the amount of snow, a good 2 feet I think. I get the car cleared off (after soaking my pants to the knees). I backed out and backed in to make sure I could get out. Came back inside, got the kids gear on which takes so long. We get back in the car and I am STUCK. There is no amount of gassing it that is getting me out.

I give the boss a call. He says he has a tow rope. I said I am going to see if maintenance can get me out and see if they plow and I will call him back in a few. 9:30 rolls around and I get maintenance to push on the car, they can not move me at all. So I called my boss back and he says well I can come get you. I think okay cool but I have the kids to take to daycare. That's fine...if I tow you out you'll probably just get stuck on the roads. The plows can not keep up with the snow.

So thankfully my boss came and got the kids and I an took us where we needed to be. I do not want to use my sick/vacation time yet so I am thankful he did that for me!

Well we get an email from HR that they are closing our work. The snow and roads are so bad they are closing my work which says A LOT about the place I work for. We are a huge company too. We all get to leave with pay....awesome. So of course the boss brought us home. My very best guy friend (this guy would do anything for me and his friends...he is amazing to have in life and I am thankful he is a good friend to me, I adore his friendship) came over and between the two of them my car is pushed back in it's spot but still stuck.

I am okay with stuck. Warm day inside is a perfect day for me.

A New Begining

I am looking forward to 2009! This last year was pretty hard emotionally and medically. I will not let this next year of my life be as hurtful as the last. I do not have it easy BUT I am thankful for so many things. I refuse to let emotions get the best of me again.

I went out with 2008 with a bang. Makayla was up with a fever and puking all night. I myself was in so much pain I headed off to Urgent Care. They thought I had kidney stones or even appendicitis. I had to have a CT and everything. They have no idea why I am hurting and was sent home with a "go to the ER if it gets worse" lol. I am still in pain but I guess I am just dealing with it.

2009 will be filled with making new memories, being happy and enjoying my life! I feel I learned a lot about myself this last year. Resolutions are few and it is okay if I fail. I look forward to blogging on a regular basis to keep track of some of the funny things my kids say and do!!

HaPpY nEw YeAr!
