Back Home-Finally!!

Well, I'm finally back home after what ended up being a very long week! I was away for the weekend for my intro to grad school (yay for starting my Master's in Library Science!) but on the way back home my car slid out on the ice and I crashed into a guardrail on the highway. It was a pretty scary experience, but the car is driveable, so there's still good news. I then got stranded in Oklahoma for two days and finally made my way back home yesterday, after many delays, windshield wiper, and snow problems.

I am so happy to be sleeping in my own bed again. I hope you all had better luck in this icky weather than I did. I'll be posting the contest winners later today-once I get a chance to finish catching up on everything. Stay warm everyone!!!

  3. Eeesh, snow is sparkly but so very scary (especially when driving)! I'm glad you made it home in one piece - it sounds like you had quite a ride!
