Instead of enjoying the day and putting all my efforts into what I want to and should be doing today, I'm already worrying about tomorrow. It is supposed to start raining tonight and turn to snow during the night. The prediction is for 3" of snow. I finally committed to being a greeter at church tomorrow morning, so I really feel I have to be there. I'm stressed about having to drive to church. Normally, it's a 20 minute driving 5 over the limit drive. I have no idea how much time to allow myself to make it there tonight.
It's been almost 14 years since I've had to drive in snowy weather, and I just don't feel very confident about my abilities. I'm sure I will get used to it quickly. I just have to get over this fear that I have. I think some of it has to do with knowing the drivers in the Detroit area really can drive crazy most times. And I think some of it is knowing that I can easily slip and fall in the snow and ice. After three back surgeries (two in the last year), I find that I am very paranoid about falling. I wonder how long it will take to overcome this.
