Plowing out

Two plows came through my little neighborhood last night at about 8:00. We all emerged from our garages with shovels in hand, happy to shovel out the five foot bank of snow and ice from the ends of our driveways. It was a lot harder than we thought it would be. But I am so so so excited to be heading out of here to a meeting this morning.

I am going to an AA meeting!!!! I am so freaking excited!!! I will see a bunch of people I love and hear about how they have weathered the storm. I talked to a few of them on the phone yesterday, but that just doesn't take the place of a real AA meeting.

Have a happy Saturday everyone.

Don't you just love having to shovel all that snow the plow leaves at the end of your driveway. I know I don't. Have a great weekend.

I was THRILLED to shovel that because it meant I could get out of here. I didn't think I was going to be able to get out all weekend.

It is great to hear your excitement about going to a meeting. Although the snow is such a pain, it is beautiful to look at.

How was your meeting? How you holding out with being semi-snowbound? How many snowmen have you made?
