Drivers Ed

It has been snowing here. So bad that the snow plows have not been able to keep up. I was driving to a job this afternoon and I was getting off the freeway onto the off ramp when......I found myself in a ditch. There was a wreck and everyone was trying to avoid hitting it and I tried to avoid the cars swerving out of control trying to avoid the wreck. So the ditch was my best bet.
I had to call Brent and tell him, "Guess what your wife did this time." He was so sweet and since I have a 4-wheel drive vehicle, he tried to talk me through how to get out. I ended up creating a huge mess with snow and a lot of mud and got a lot of looks and laughs from the cars driving by. I tried to take a picture of my tracks but after having to call, Brent, 911, the person at the job I was going to, and the tow truck, my battery was very low.
So after much embarrassment and humiliation, the police had a special tow truck pull me out and it cost me $125. Something we soooo don't have at this time. I drove 30 mph home the whole way even though the speed limit was 50 and I haven't left since. I need chocolate.

My Family!

I just got back from Texas last week. I went for my Grandpa's 80th birthday and it was so nice to have everyone in the same house. All of us have not been together since 1992! Since then, people have gotten married, another grandchild has been born, and great-grandchildren have been added to this family.
I got to be the photographer for the event. So stressful!!! Trying to get 27 people to listen to you takes a lot of work. But I just love hanging out with my family!
