So, most of you who know me know that I am overly cautious in a lot of areas, but especially when it comes to weather. Tonight I am kicking myself in the behind for the caution. The prediction of an ice storm today sent me into a continual 24 hour worry session. Do I go to Tremont from 3:30 until 6:00 or do I reschedule/cancel the appointment. Up until 3:00 today (when the sun was still basically shining), I wasn't sure what to do. I knew at that point that I could make it to Tremont, but would I make it home? Well, now it is 6:00, I would have been home or on my way home, and there is still NOTHING happening outside. Now, I have to work until 6 or 6:30 tomorrow night. And I have a Christmas party to go to at 6 or 6:30. So, it will be a slightly stressful evening, but at least I am home and safe. And I would have been patting myself on the back if the weather had turned bad at 5:00. It's all about perspective.
Let's see. I am in my thirties and single. I love spending time with my family, friends, reading, playing games, and spectating (but not playing) sports. I was born in Illinois, raised in Georgia, and went to graduate school in Texas. I now live back in Illinois. I work at an agency doing in-home therapy with kids and their families. I attend Bethany Baptist Church and work with AWANA, volunteer in the nursery, and am active in the Career class. My favorite drink is Dr. Pepper (I even like Dr. Pepper Jelly Bellies). Winter is my favorite time of year and in the winter I love to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate.
