Wipers up, snow down

image

I said this morning that wipers up means snow will be coming down.  It started early afternoon, and never really let up…

image

The roads were icy, visibility was reduced… And I had to go to school for class tonight.

image

Yeah. Good luck getting anywhere.

image

You know what, though? I got there, checked my voicemail, and heard a message saying class was canceled.

Some days are only good for building snowmen and going to bed early.

Tonight I’m wearing my warrior shirt to bed. Kind of need a reminder to eat better tomorrow and stop getting so frustrated with work.  I ranted at a friend* at work today about all of my frustrations and it just made me want to cry.  Then, I rushed off to school where I was scheduled for an exam…I was feeling crappy, so what did I have for dinner? A chicken taquito, a corndog, a bag of chips, a handful of dark chocolate, and about half a cup of gelato.  Did it feel good at the time? Absolutely. Does it feel good now? Nope. Can I take it back? Nope! Time to move on.

Tomorrow I’ll be well rested, and I’ll make sure to have healthy snacks with me.

Have a good night!

It’s not working..I’m so tired!

I went to iaido last night, after an eleven hour day at work, then spent a couple hours studying.  I got to sleep after midnight, I was up at 5:30..and I’m tired. Exhausted, really.  But I’ve got 8 hours ahead of me at work, plus school.. I won’t be home until 9pm.

What does all of this have to do with the photo above? Well.. raised wipers is a winter omen in Minnesota.  Winter is coming..again. 6-8″ snow expected before I have to go to school. I’ll take a before and after picture of my car..

In the mean time, I’m going to be living on energy drinks.
