I drove in the driveway at 11:15pm. G had been at my parents and at one point I was thinking she should just spend the night, but when I called at 9:30ishpm to make the suggestion (I had another 2 hours in the traffic but didn't know that yet) she started crying so I knew that wouldn't work. Dad met me at my house so he stayed up with her to wait on my to call and say I am on the way home. G and dad came in behind me.
I have no idea what I am going to do today. The weather may not do anything and staying home isn't really an option. I used a half a tank of gas in the traffic and I am totally exhausted. I had gone to the rest room right before getting in my car to leave and then about 3 hours into the mess I really had to go. I told my mom when I called her on one of the million calls I made to her and G told me my dad's suggestion was to go in a cup. I don't think he realizes that that would be quite impossible. But now I have a slight UTI I think. Cranberry juice seems to cure me pretty well.
Got to bed just by midnight up by 6pm. Have I mentioned that I really am one who needs sleep? Last night I had decided not to go to work today but the school hasn't been canceled yet. I will just eat the day if they will close it.
I don't want to waste the day but this is crazy. G isn't going to have much more sleep than I because she came home last night. Thankfully my parents gave her a bath, brushed her teeth and everything so she didn't have to do that too. And about that 6 hour traffic jam, no body knew what the hold up was. I called the Hwy patrol and city police in big city and smallish town and NOBODY could say what happened. The news this morning keeps saying a couple of hours the interstate was backed up, HAH! try 5 hours. But my 45 min drive took 6 hours. I left work at 5:15pm and got home at 11:15pm.
Oh well, I guess I will get ready and pray the school closes. Normally I would have no problem going but sitting in a car for 6 hours has changed my mind I believe I would be glad for a snow day.
