It has been a rough day today. Started off by getting up and getting Austin ready for school and the truck doors were froze shut. Due to all of the flooding buses are still running flood and snow routes, which means we have to meet the bus at Country Corner in Charity which is about 5 miles away. It is only 15 degrees and Allen is at work. Normally my FIL would take him in these conditions but he is having surgery tomorrow and he is throwing a pity party for himself, so he wouldn't take Austin to the bus. I asked my MIL, why wasn't he taking him and she said he had to go get his haircut. At 6:45 in the morning! Come on!! That really angered me when I found out the roads were good enough to go 30 miles for a haircut, but not 5 miles to meet the bus. I called Allen to find out where the keys to the little mazda were. He knew something was wrong. #1-I'm not suppose to drive alone and #2-I had forgotten that it didn't even run. He found out what was going on and came home and took Austin to school. His boss was very understanding and then he went back to work. It has been so cold and snowy here all day, I think it finally got up to 20 degrees. I got most of the housework done, becasue we won't be home much to speak of the next couple of days with my FIL's surgery and all. He will be in the hospital about a week if all goes well. My 2 Sister-in-laws, Debbie and Donna, are traveling through hellish ice and snow weather from Northern Illinois, to get here for this. I hope they make it safely. It is not a pretty site from where they are coming from.
Take care and God Bless!

Love Always, Tracy
