|Okay this is no longer funny!|
6:35 pm Update
I did go to work this morning but not at my usual time ... I got stuck in the driveway. When i opened the garage door I noticed the driveway was blown in with snow. I figured since my truck is a 4x4 I would just blast through to the road like I do every morning. NOT!!!
I verged too close to the pile of snow on my left and as I tried to get free I sunk down and couldn't move. I had to take the dogs out of the truck and put them in the house while I tried to shovel my way out without having a heart attack. I called work and told them I would be late. I started shoveling as best as I could. I was grateful for one thing though that I wasn't in a ditch somewhere with the dogs at least they were safe in the house. A neighbor happened by I waved him over. He couldn't believe I got stuck with a 4x4. Anyway he offered to pull me out with his 4x4. It took minutes and I was free. I resumed shoveling the driveway but decided I would park my truck by the gate when I returned from work. Hence I repeat the above scenario. LOL
On my way to work was another story. The roads from McLean to Balgonie were like a virtual skating rink ... I called the daycare before I left home to ask about the roads. Barb stated they were fine. When I got to the city it was like I drove into another time zone as the roads were clear and the weather sunny.
The group I work with took me out for my retirement lunch. It was very nice of them. I enjoyed it very much. Then at coffee time the whole floor joined in for dessert. All in all the day turned out very well!
Needless to say, I have to make up for missing work on Tuesday, March 22, 2011 by working on Monday, March 28, 2011 then I can go on vacation! Tomorrow is another day ... now what day is it. I have actually lost count ... I have been thrown off the counting wheel!
|I haven't lost count|
|Only 3 more days if it doesn't snow!|
