Warning: this post is entirely negative except for the very last part. I apologize in advance. I’ll be better tomorrow.
Today was crappy.
It rained all day.
I miscalculated today’s trek from Birmingham to Roanoke by 90 minutes, then encountered another 90 minutes of delays due to three traffic jams near Chattanooga and two more near Knoxville.
I respect truckers but I hate that I have to share the road with them.
Two of the afore-mentioned traffic delays involved accidents in which 18-wheelers were on their sides.
Some drivers are just plain stupid. Many others are bullies.
I was in a great mood when I started out this morning but that changed 30 minutes into my drive.
In the midst of a miserable drive I started thinking about how busy it’ll be at work when I return there tomorrow.
Blah, blah, blah, whine, whine, whine. You know I’m usually positive, so maybe I’ve earned this departure from the norm.
There is a positive. Except for today, this December road trip equaled last year’s, maybe bettered it. I have awesome friends in North Carolina and Louisiana and awesome family members in Louisiana. I am blessed to have been able to spend time with them. Maybe when I wake up tomorrow I’ll focus on that and it’ll help me get through the day.
