Sure its still not Monday????

This morning, Ricky wakes me up early & says "We got more snow then they expected - get up so you can get an early start"... my response was some sorta grumble. 

I get up & get ready & Ricky went ahead & left. I got a phone call from him saying "BE CAREFUL!!!! I've seen three wrecks already & be especially careful at the end of our road - I saw one of the wrecks right there!  Its slippery"... yeah, yeah, yeah... let me get ready... I'm sleepy!

So I pull out of the garage & head down the drive & see car coming.  Now, our drive way is a slope & curves as well.  I stop to let this car get ahead of me & dang it, I slid right off the drive way!  OK - that woke me up! 

I am creeping down our road & its a hard road to drive down in bad conditions.  Its very much a country road with hills after hills & some of them are pretty steep.  Its DANG slippery!  I head to the end of the road where Ricky said he saw the wreck & I'm aware at this point so I look and am going 8 mph!  Then what happens next?  Yep - I'm sliding... & I'm sliding right off the road!!!

I try to correct it which is the worst thing you can do so it throws me in a bigger spin... finally I just take my hands off the wheel (And no, I didnt break out into Carrie Underwood's song) & just thought, I'm not going that fast, let's see where this goes!  And right off the road I went!!! 

Luckily there were no other cars around me to bang into & even more luckily, I ended up in a part of the road that is covered with gravel so I had some good traction to help get me out.  The worst part of it was having to call Ricky & tell him what happened... right where he said to watch out.. DANG IT!  Pride hurts sometimes, doesnt it?

Then I get to work & my computer is pretty much like this...

A big ole slug!  I have had to hit "reply" or "Delete" like 50 times to get one email out... I'm ready to pull my hair out... if I even get this blog post to actually POST, it'll be a miracle...so if I havent responded to an email or anything, thats why... I feel like I'm living in the dark ages of Pre-email... gasp!

THEN, I just happened to look down & seen I have on two different pairs of socks... How did that happen?  I guess during my grumbling with Ricky this morning is exactly when it happened... But isnt it kinda the cool thing to do now?  To wear different socks?  I'll just pretend it is & say I'm just too cool like that...

And the worst part - its only 10:54 am here... what else is this day going to hold? 

We'll see....


  1. Ugh! I hate when my work computer acts up, it totally makes my day stressful and frustrating! Hope your day gets better friend!

  2. Praise God for your safety! I am so glad you are safe, it could have been so much worse.
    I LOVE that you have 2 different socks on. It makes me feel like I am not the only one who does stuff like that.

    Love you!!!!

  3. I left work early yesterday because the roads out in my neck of the woods were listed as "Travel not advised"! I wanted to drive home in the daylight and thank the Lord I did. Even here in MN winter driving can be a pain in the butt!

  4. Glad you made it safely!! Hope your trip home isn't as adventerous!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the birthday wishes! Kids are in school and looks like we have a basketball game and I have the morning off. Looks to be a good day!

    The bananna bars were so good!!! Alot of fun baking with a friend too! I'm just learning to play Sequence, didn't do too badly, C won one and I won one....definately a game I'll have to try to find for hubby and I to play on these lovely winter days!

  5. So glad you didn't get hurt in a wreck or something...WHEW! It always throws me off when my day gets started off bad. I did have to laugh about your socks, though!;)

  6. So glad there wasn't any damage.

    I just hate when days go like that, don't worry it'll get better. I always does.

  7. I'm sorry for laughing at your expense. Glad that it isn't any worse.

  8. I've driven on those Indiana country roads in the winter; I know exactly what you mean! So glad you're okay! I HATE WINTER DRIVING!

    Of course you're cool; we already knew that. The socks just confirm :)

    Good luck on the rest of your day.

  9. Slippery roads, slow computers and mix matched socks ~~ yep sounds like a Monday all over again to me!!

    Hope you day gets better girl!!!

    Love you,

  10. That's scary! Glad you're ok!

    The 8 year old I nanny for wears two different socks on purpose because it's "cool". So look at you, being fashionable!

  11. I do not like to drive in weather like that. The first time I did and slide out and went to get out of the way because cars were coming both ways and hit a truck. I know not fun. Now I just let myself slide have a great day.. It will be okay.. hugs..

  12. Well, here's some good news! Your socks are actually in style! Yes, you read that right (http://www.littlemissmatched.com/). My kids got some pairs of these for Christmas and the package even said adults are wearing them! So that should bring a smile to your face on a not-so-smiley day. Hope tomorrow is better.

  13. I hope your adventure home was much less exciting. Your pics cracked me up. Especially the slug. My computer must be in kahoots with yours.

  14. I'm with you on this one. Hate the slow computers and as you know from my blog, my daughter slid off, only she wasn't quite as lucky, got a ticket and quite a bit of damage. Thank goodness it's an old car though and she wasn't hurt. Yuck!

  15. Well, just as I'm thinking that maybe you need my Thanks Not Cranks bracelet (wink), I scroll down and see the picture of two different socks. I had to laugh. Too funny, girlie!

    Are you lucky that Ricky warned you before you got in the car? At least you were going slow down that road! Could have been so much worse!!

  16. Oh the joys of snow and ice :) I know them well...Glad you were ok! At least it's "hump day" tomorrow and the week will be half over!!

  17. Snow seems all cute and junk, till you start sliding and wrecking. Then it ain't such a kick is it?
    I hate it when my computer is so slow. It makes me wish I could just shut it down and go back home.

  18. look at you setting trends with your socks - snow and ice - bleh. We may get some this weekend. Luckily it will only be the second time this winter.

    OMG - the word verification is "ovulate" - seriously!!!!!

  19. OH no, see that would be the same thing that would happen to me. And my Rick would not let me live it down though.

    Oh man you just tell people you doing a punky brewster day! :)

    Hope the day got better

  20. I am so glad you are safe, it could have been so much worse.

    Work from home India
