I think 3 or so inches fell over night. It was nasty last night around 7pm. When I left work yesterday. The winds were kicking up blowing the snow that just started coming. Roads were kind of slick then. Today they look really nasty. I don't drive. Even if I did we can't afford a 2nd car. And in this weather I'd not drive anyways. So 4:30 I gotta go walk up the block to catch a bus to work. I start at 6am. Buses don't run early from my house. going north which is what way I go. But south the buses start passing by at 4:30am. It sucks. When there is a bus across the street from my house. But the first one does not leave till 5:35. With my transferr bus not coming till 6:01 am. Getting me to work late. So I walk down 3 blocks to a different route bus that ends me up by a gas station. I get a coffee. Then catch this other bus to work. It gets me there about 5:35. I tried bargaining for coming in 15 minutes late and staying 15 minutes later. But the supervisor would not go for that. She is worried me being late I can't get the assisted living breakfast done on time. I can and have. It's only for 30 people. It's simple. Usually bacon or sausage, a hot cereal and some french toast or pancakes. The french toast and pancakes are premaid frozen. You just heat and serve. The cold cereal and fresh fruit I do nothing with. That is all in the assisted living building kitchen along with the juice, milk and coffee. The aids set that up. I was seriously wanting to call in today. It's just so cruddy out. But well after I work today. I am off the next 2. So I am psyching myself up that at 2:30pm. I am done. I can think about enjoying my 2 days off. I guess I better get one more cup of coffee. The get myself ready to leave the house. Dh gets up at 6am to get our son off to school. I hate when I work the closing shift day before I work the opening shift. I got home about 7:45pm. Ate something. Tried mellowing out enough to go to sleep shortly after. Ha. It took me till 10:30pm to finally get tired enough for sleep. I got up at 3:15. Turned on the coffee pot. Got dressed. I'm really over tired. As my coworker Jim says. I hate getting up in the middle of the night for work. But I sure enjoy going home at 2:30 in the afternoon instead of later. So I am telling myself 2:30 will come quick enough.
