Today is brought to you by…

Mrs. Grumpy Whiney Pants.

Oh yeah, this is going to a fun post.

*So in reference to yesterday’s post…I’ll be holding an online, live intervention via skype soon. Let me know if you are interested.

So I woke up this morning super early. No. Not for a run. I’m not much of a get-up-super-early-and-run in the freezing cold darkness kind of girl, although I wish I were. Maybe I can work on that. It never really worked out for me with the Hubs being either gone for months on end or with him needing to be at work by 6:30 AM. I just don’t get up to run that early. There is no need…

Anyway, I got up early to drive to Raleigh so I could take my licensure exam, finally. Get it done and out of the way. Of course, of all days, today LB had a 2 hour delay start for school due to snow and ice. Good thing the Hubs was able to take him later. I headed out and our driveway and neighborhood street were fine. The other roads, not-so-much. It was icy and slicker than snot as my dad would say. I saw a couple of cars slide into the ditch. I pulled into the gas station. Called the Hubs and made a decision to not go to Raleigh. I headed home. You know that feeling? When you are prepared to do something and then last minute you don’t? Kind of a weird feeling of relief because who wants to take a 4 hour proctored exam that holds your whole entire career in the balance? No biggie. Ha! But now I just have to take it in January. I am postponing the misery…Ugh.

Now, I am home with LB. The call came in that school was cancelled for the day. I probably wont head to the gym, it’s too far away and they don’t have childcare. I miss T-Town and my trusty YMCA with a family center where I could run while LB played, or even the childcare they had. I miss my routine and my support system I had there, I miss the familiarity of my everyday routine. I miss everything about it.

On a brighter note, Merry Christmas to ME!! While I was in Vegas the hubs was shopping! We needed new appliances really bad and here they are! All we need now is a new fridge to hold the groceries I need to buy today!
