Gratitude with Attitude

Instead of my Post It Note Tuesday, I'm doing the Gratitude with Attitude this Tuesday... cause sometimes you need more than a post it to say what you wanna say.

Dear Semi Driver,

Thank you so much for speeding around me this morning as I moved slower in the completely snow covered right hand land on the way to work, and throwing all that DIRTY snow up onto my windshield with your tires. I appreciate you reminding me of the potential danger by covering my entire windshield sot hat I had to come to a complete stop until I had it cleaned off again. I thought though, that I was moving cautiously as it was.

The SENSIBLE woman driver.

Dear Mr Groundhog,

I know that I said your weather report was fine with me, but seriously... I was only KIDDING when I said I had nothing at all planned for Spring anyway. I don in fact have to get out to work and shop for groceries, and pouring all this snow onto us really isn't helping out with that.

The Warm Weather Watcher

Dear Beanie,

Thanks for not hacking up your hairball last night in the heavy traffic area in the living room and kitchen. But is it too much to ask that you do that in the utility room close to your litter box where we clean up regularly anyway? Or was it some kind of sick "hide and watch" game for you to leave that massive mucous hair ball right in the middle of my scrap room where my freshly laundered socks could step in and clean that up for you and dry heave the entire time I was cleaning it uip?

Your Grossed Out Mama

Dear Supervisor,

That was so great of you to text me this morning with allt he rough snow-covered roads and fall sleet to tell me to stay home because the office was closing early anyway. And if you'd done that just 10 minutes earlier, BEFORE I risked life and limb... creeping slowly across a slick bridge and dodging rude semi-truck drivers (see memo #1)... I wouldn't have been able to pick up that nice hot McDonald's breakfast for my hubby and son.

Thanks so much,
The cold, red-nosed Team Coordinator

Below are just a few pictures of my Snow Day today. We went from Snow to sleet, then back to a much heavier, wet snow.

Don't ask me what happened to that date thing. Somehow
the dates are 1 day off on all these but the last one. Weird!



I live just 2 miles from the bridge in the top picture.
By the time I'd driven that distance home, we went 
from sleet to this very heavy wet snow.
