Started out at 4:40 PM; sat in traffic over 1 hour; decided to pull into a shopping center, to use the bathroom, and get dinner (I have blood sugar problems, and was worried that, if I didn't take that last chance to eat, I'd be in the traffic again literally for hours). Struck out again. Another 30 minutes, just to go maybe 2 miles. Decided, as I was near a friend's house, I could maybe go there, until DH got home (who, BTW, is a truck driver--God only knows what HE was dealing with then, and when or if he'd be home that night). Got stuck on a road in her development. Had to walk about 1/2 mile, in bad snow boots (they're cracked, and my feet got soaked in the snow, and I was having problems with my left foot today, so walking was painful already). I was afraid to even attempt our "mountain", only about 5 miles down the road from my friend's, as it's steep. I wanna move! :-)
Made it ok--just got home about 15 minutes ago! I only live less than 30 minutes from work, too!
