Well, if I thought last week was long, this week was beyond worse. Our area was hit by a winter storm in the middle of the afternoon - 3ish. I was at work stressing about my commute, so I left at 4pm. My typically one hour commute became a 8.5 hour adventure. Stuck in the snow behind those who were in cars not fit for it, followed by my car overheating and luckily getting to an Applebee's, was only half the trip. Then the boy drove 2.5 hours (supposed to be 45 min) to get me and return home, another hour. So at 1AM we made it home.

Now after all of this - the car went to the shop and has now come home, minus $630 from my bank account! So only a few hours of reading were accomplished this week, next week I may get back into the swing of things and start February on a lighter note!
