It was 6a.m. and I was out on the roads this morning going to work. After sliding through an intersection in my neighborhood I decided to take a look at my phone once I got to a stop light. Two missed phone calls, one voice mail, and three text messages. Shoot.
Why didn't I check my phone before I left the house? Argh. Stupid.
So, I did a u-turn and made it half-way up my drive way before loosing my forward momentum. My newly repaired card was now sliding back down the driveway . . backwards. Just my luck, right?
I came to a stop in the snow bank, which I created with my trusty shovel a week earlier, and I was safe. Stuck, but safe. I was only in about six inches of snow, but that was enough to stop me and trap me. If I had traction I would have been able to push through or pull out, but my front wheels were on hockey rink. Sigh.
I left the car and went inside to announce that school was wisely cancelled, and I would be making pancakes for breakfast after I extricated the card from the snow bank at the bottom of the driveway.
Now, the car is in the garage, my belly is happy, and I can catch up on the piles of cards and my blogging responsibilities. Life is good.
