Oh what a night..............

This is how I feel. (oh, and I love this dog)
My sore throat is a cough now. This seems to be the way things go for me. I don't get colds anymore........I think because I have had so many from working with kids my entire life. Hopefully this cough will not get worse.
Last night I had to walk home from quite a distance. Our neighborhood is up a huge hill. As I walked I was breathing rather heavy and nothing seemed to be going in my lungs. I had company going up the hill.......all of my neighbors.
A couple inches of snow with a glaze of ice. Accidents were everywhere. My bug is so sweet. I was able to do a u-ie in the road. Others tried and went into the ditch. I was able to turn around and go another route that most wouldn't have tried. I got close to my home but ambulances blocked our entrance. It took me an hour to drive home from work........3 miles away. My Hubby drives 45 minutes and it took him 3 hours. We were able to go get my car when he got home.
I didn't go to work this morning. Our school had a delay but our program still was open. I will go this afternoon. I plan on restocking my pantry and staying in all week-end and RESTING.
Maybe I will get some projects started so I will be able to post something other than my doggies.
Speaking of doggies........someone lost their little dog. They posted signs everywhere. The whole town was talking about the signs. Then last week-end we got an automative (is that a word) call reporting the lost dog and the contact number. Have you ever heard of that. Well guess what......signs posted yesterday said they found their dog. I had wished I had my camera to take a picture of the sign to blog about it. See what blogging does.....sure makes you think about things differently.
Be careful out there.........yes, I still love the snow.

Dear Debby, I'm so sorry to hear you have a cold. I'm feeling much better.

What a sweet story about the little dog!

Love,

Oh Debby! My TSG driving to visit her new boyfriend skidded on the ice at a stop sign and did terrible damage to a parked car. This poor girl has the worst luck! I'm so glad you made it home safely. I can just picture the hills where you are! Have a warm and cozy weekend! E

It took me an hour and a half to get home last night. What a mess.

Feel better! La

It sounds like you people are having weather problems there. We had all our snow melt, temps in the 40's and the sun is out here in Homer everyone is saying this is very odd weather for Jan. We're starting in now with temps in the 20's and sunny skies.
Sounds like your health is suffering a bit and you should think about what to do about this in the future before it gets worse. Maybe you just try and do too much as you lead a very active life with the kids and all.
Take Care and get some rest like you said. Nan

Sorry about the cough sweet Debby, hope it goes away very soon. Glad you made it home safe. We are supposed to have ice or snow or ice and snow on the way so I am staying in all weekend. Keep warm and get well sweet friend. Hugs

I am glad that you made it home safely. It sounds very treacherous. Hope you can rest this weekend!

Wow, THAT was quite the day you had! But your car came through with flying colors (don't you love a great car) and it sounds like you have your weekend all mapped out. Good rest, warm and cozy and plenty to keep you busy! Sounds like a perfect couple of days!
You are getting the snow this year I guess. We're still pretty dry up here. It was 50 today! Yikes.

Hunker down and rest! I'll be thinking of you all weekend!

Hugs,
Jan

You must have had a heck of a storm, that sounds awful and I like to walk but not that far in that kind of cold! My daughter lost their little poodle the other day but they were so blessed to find him at the local pound. And yes, take care of yourself my friend! :D

Sarah said...

Hope you are feeling better. Stay warm and cozy!

Debby! I hope you see this comment! You just have to swap a Valentine with me! I am decorating a spare bedroom with a Valentine theme, and I would love to have a Valentine from all my special friends. Do please consider. You are just swapping with me! Elizabeth

Hope you're feeling better by now Debby! Was this not a weird snow? It snowed here almost all day Friday and Saturday and not a lot of snow on the ground, but the roads were yucky!

Debby, When I taught school, I always had a cold- those kids were sick all the time!!! Hope you're feeling a little better. I'm not loving this cold weather of ours. I really haven't been out of the house for the past 2 weeks, so I've avoided being out in the snow and ice. The first few months of weather in Oh are never nice, so I am really looking forward to spring. Plus, we can all meet up again, once it's nicer out. Take care- Sue
