I am up far too early this morning. 4:50 a.m. This is way too early for me.
What is it with getting older and sleep. It seems to become more and more elusive.
I can take a nap in the afternoon and sleep so well then come evening, just toss and turn.
Well anyway I have lots to do around the house so I will take advantage of the extra hour and a half.
It is currently still snowing here. We have only gotten about an inch so far but it is still coming down. I was really counting on a snow day for Katie today but so far school is still in session. We live close enough for her to walk to school but since her surgery, she wants me to take her. Under the circumstances I do agree with her.
Yet I hate driving in the slippery stuff. And listen to this, Katie's drivers ed. instructor told the class that if we have a snow day, it would be a good idea to let them drive around in the snow!
Now normally I wouldn't have a problem with this as I grew up driving in Chicago and I know how to drive in winter weather. I don't like it but I can do it. I have two issues with this. The first one is very simple. She is NOT ready. This I know for sure.
When I do take her driving in the snow, it will be in a parking lot first. An empty one at that!
The second issue that I have with this suggestion is that if we did get enough snow for a snow day, someone would have to shovel my one hundred plus foot driveway.
The husband is not here. Katie can't bend over or lift over ten pounds for three weeks.
I used to shovel it myself. I like to shovel snow! But for some reason, no one will let me do it anymore!
My son will come and do it if necessary. But he works long hours and has a family of his own to care for. So I say that the driving instructor come and shovel it for me! I love this idea. Better yet, he could shovel my drive and than take the inexperienced Katie cruising around in the drivers ed. car! Yes that's a great idea!
Or perhaps the school could purchase a nice, lightweight snow-blower for me!
