I managed to accomplish A LOT of work yesterday. I locked my office door, and threatened anyone who thought they should be allowed to enter anyway. I now only have about four weeks of work to finish in the next three days, but I'm gaining.
I don't think I mentioned that I bought another car on Friday - and holy crap, it's a Chrysler! A 300M actually, a used one that came in on trade in a Cadillac deal. It is beautiful, and I say that a little in shock myself, as I don't do Chrysler, or Dodge or Ford, for that matter. I stole it for a song of course, and I really, really enjoy driving it. The Grand Am that I am already making payments on will be handed over to Janelle, along with the tiny payment, because she cannot continue making the huge payment she has on her nearly worn out vehicle. I don't like having to do it this way, but the circumstances warrant some kind of action, as she needs a car that she can afford and depend on.
My drive home last night at eight o'clock was a white knuckle ride - the snow was literally pounding down on me, nearly blinding. The twenty miles of dark highway between my house and the dealership was treacherous, and I about pulled over to sit on the side of the highway all night. I am tired of making these kinds of drives, this winter has been relentless. If all my drive time could be added up, I'll bet that I would find I have spent YEARS behind the wheel of a car, and I cannot remember a time when it's been so nerve wracking and desperate. I have never, ever been afraid in a car, but I think I am just about fed up with it - although there certainly is no public transportation or taxi service available in the boondocks in which I reside.
I didn't throw up last night! Maybe it was just a bug? A middle of the night only bug, but a bug nonetheless. Hmmmm...that would make it a nocturnal bug. I don't like the sound of that. :)
Today Mark and I will travel to the city to see my Mom before her surgery. I hope the highways are in better condition, I would hate to think that she would have to reschedule. I am praying that this will give her less pain and allow her to get out of bed and live a little. These past three years have been way too hard on her, she needs a break.
I wish you all the best Tuesday ever, or whatever day it is in your corner of the world. Later.
